Hello you lot. Got some catching up to do but looks like there is some impressive running going on here- ultras, mileage swittling, JT, DD..
I got back from France yesterday. Excellent holiday despite the most rubbish weather seen in that region for over 10 years. In true English style, we braved the swimming pool, shivering, in the rain and wind Stayed in Barry Sheen's old trailer in Le Mans on the way home on Saturday night, which was just a unique experience. Eating lots of camembert and bread, and drinking lots of the excellent, cheap wine, featured highly during our holidays too. I ran most days- found a lovely 3.5 mile loop around local fields and through paths with just sunflowers and some wind turbines for miles around, and a field of sheep who never failed to be surprised to see me, even when I was doing several loops. Some days, the boy joined me on his bike for a chat, which was an unexpected pleasure. It's amazing what 9 days of no wifi can do for a 13 year old boy's social skills
Off for a run in a bit. It's Monday, so it should be hills, but I might treat myself to an easy run, as it's my birthday
