Some good excuses already coming in ahead of this weekend's event.
I'm still a bit ill so I've been taking it easy this week with just a few easy, but lovely summer evening runs round the fields. Looking forward to getting back to proper training soon though, I'm starting to get a bit twitchy. (But that might be all the coffee I've been drinking to compensate for staying up too late to watch the Olympics)
How about: You're driving at well over the speed limit round a blind bend with double white lines and notice a runner coming towards you on your side of the road. should you;
a) slow down and cautiously pass the runner if the road is clear;
b) stop if necessary to let the oncoming car go by before passing; or
c) pull out, then veer back in when you see the oncoming car and beep your horn obnoxiously (presumably to notify the oncoming car that there's a bellend in a bmw heading towards them) squeeze though the gap between car and runner all the time maintaining your excessive speed?
We have to do those hazard perception driving tests at work. I just click everything as you're not penalised for incorrect choices. It's worked so far.
One the subject of shoes, and inspired by all the "expensive running shoes are too expensive" threads on this forum, I bought a pair of budget range shoes the other day - asics zaraca. They're alright , but I quite like the look of the vazee pace so I might pop into TKMaxx tomorrow and try some on if they have them.
I'm ill at the moment - so I'll that I've had a day off today - so no running so far this week.
