Some great sounding runs for all
Yesterday I gave the running a miss and cycled down to London fields lido for a swim in the beautiful sunshine. I have my first triathlon next month and intended to also include a run, but my friend is injured, so we gave it a miss. Of note was cycling into my friend and falling into the road , narrowly missing a bus on Mare St Hackney. This resulted in absolutely no-one at the busy bus stop even acknowledging it had happened, and some fairly impressive, but benign, cuts and bruising, down my right leg and arse cheek. My mate came off a bit better and we both agree it was sheer twattery on both our parts. Rest of the bike ride was mostly on the river lee, regents canal and grand Union, which are lovely. 22 mile round trip on the bike and a mile swim. We also got sunburnt
This morning was the longest run I've done since Manchester marathon a month ago- an unimpressive and slow 10 miles feeling rather battered and too warm, but livened up by some 1980s Prince on the iPod.
