Nice morning for it, but by the time I got back, my rear was covered in mud from the rubbish I flicked on myself during the 'paw-back' phase. Why, when it gets good & balmy, must it rain/be damp?

Hi once again, training types.

Been out for my first run for almost 3weeks;reasons for not running, busy time at work,family,weather,couldn't be bothered etc.What a copout.I just ran a couple of miles today and it was great.More tomorrow.
28/12/2002 at 19:26
Thanks, Outrunningalongway - it was fun :) I really enjoy running in the dunes (not the soft sand, though - the grassy paths, up and down, are best), so I enjoyed the course today :)

Very best of luck in the County xc champ's next weekend - that sounds very exciting! Do you know what the course will be like yet?

What: Running Club Christmas Disco

A four hour endurance session with particular attention paid to careful hydration.

Last rest: Boxing Day

Yesterday's session (as I was elsewhere)- undulating five miler at just over 7 minute / mile pace, clearing some cobwebs (and a headache). I experienced a running first fo me when I was attacked by a cock pheasant! He flew out at me and attacked my leg with claws and beak. I shook him off and he attacked again, so I puinted him (gently) into the stream - I didn't know that pheasants could look suprised. Why did he attack? I'm sure I don't look like a rival pheasant - maybe it was a comment on the colour clash between my tights and jacket.
