My Last Run

Pirates last night.  I am quite flexible but my balance and co ordination are shocking and l bend in the middle with all of the grace and suppleness of a fully inflated lilo.

Off on hols for a week now - good luck Cal and everyone else running this week

Surprisingly enjoyable and super surprisingly speedy three miles this evening.  Started off with post traumatic flashbacks (same trail as Saturday's HM ) then settled into the sticky evening, not anticipating much and with a slightly sore hamstring, then the heavens opened and we got drenched in lovely chilly rain, blown into our faces by a stiff little breeze.  Husband (in winter thermals and gloves) hated every second but l relished every step and averaged around 9.20! Funny old thing this running malarkey. Also got a jolly wave from the milk tanker driver who crossed our path, which was a first.

I don't believe it!

That footballers think (and presumably their wives / girlfriends / boyfriends etc. also think) that those haircuts like a half mown hayfield look good.

Hello everybody!  White Peak half marathon this morning - a course best if not a pb at 2.21 (ridiculously inadequate compared to others' achievements but l'm proud )

Wind behind, three amazing downhills, chilly (ish) sunshine, more wildflowers than you could shake a stick at, great organization and only five minutes from home!

Was hoping for 2.15 but absolutely nothing left in the tank at mile 11 and blue lips when l got home but a fab run all the same.

(Only downside was the elderly finisher being leapt on by a spectator's dog literally ten yards from the finish, tripped up, fell and banged his head on a big rock.  Paramedics there in seconds but dog allowed to runup the finishing straight to harras other finishers.)

Sticky and unpleasant five miles this morning, only cheered up by the skylarks trilling away.  How long does it usually take to be back at full tilt after giving blood?  Donated on Tuesday and my heart is still banging away if l exert myself.

That's right Cal  I decided to stick with the predictive typing error because it sounds more fun and less intimidating!

No running today but another pirates session.  Made myself laugh because l'm so uncoordinated that l couldn't make my arms swing in opposite circles at the same time and half way through a very tiring set of leg exercises l found that l'd somehow managed to be lying down facing the wrong direction so l did the same leg twice.  I think l might run in circles now.

Running is so straightforward.
