Le Jimbob and Tricky Dicky have just been out for a pleasant 15 mile steady effort with some marathon pace thrown into a couple of segments. What a jolly nice run with Hampstead Heath, Primrose Hill and Regents Park incorporated into the route.

Two weeks today darlings, looking forward to seeing you all.
