Evening folks, looks like the initial rush of people very determined to be in has slowed, hopefully there'll still be time for Panad. Think Snowdonia Snail was off to the land of the free for a month or so, not sure when he was planning on getting back.
I have two admissions, firstly, I'm just a little bit scared of running at the mo in case I do myself in again. Ran on Monday, but didn't Tuesday or yesterday. Went out tonight with my roadies intending on 5 easy miles on the flatest Tarmac I could find. That plan went out the window within 5 minutes as I started up the steepest, muddiest path I have on my doorstep. Trust me, in my present state that was seriously hard. Yeah yeah, I know, scared of running in case I hurt myself so I do that. Doesn't make sense does it? Ah well, whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger eh?
so 5 miles, up & down steep muddy hills, along bridlepaths ankle deep, but at a very easy pace. Well, a pace that would have been very easy a few months ago but one that I struggled to do tonight.
Carrying an extra stone and a half isn't helping! It'll go, it'll go......
And the second admission? Well, that one is a little harder to admit to. And I know what you'll be thinking, nothing that I haven't already thought, and something which *should* be easier to deal with than last time.
I started smoking again.....
