Guess What……………………….

Well it’s fair to say I felt a lot livelier today, however ‘Asda Big Shop’ and the sudden summer weather (I’m crap at running when it’s warm!) put pay to me running anywhere near the distance I intended. In fact had it not been for the Olympics I probably wouldn’t have gone at all. But Joe Pavey’s run in the 5000m pushed me into it. I ‘m glad I went. For the first time since my iron infused comeback I felt like I had a decent run. Granted it was only 2 1/2 mile but I did it in less than 22 1/2 minutes- not bad to say I could still taste the Chicken Enchilada I’d eaten less than 2 hours earlier – bet Paula Radcliffe never had timing issues with her meals!! The comeback is definitely on.

Just a little mention for my favourite topic – yep, Olympic watching has still taken up most of the day. I’m slightly baffled by the press moaning that today hasn’t been such a good day. Granted we didn’t pick up some Golds we expected to win but there has still been plenty of silver and bronze’s and lots of PB’s to celebrate. And let’s be honest that BMX thing boils down to who copes best on the day – are they stark raving mad – talk about taking your life in your hands. I don’t think I’ll be trying it anytime soon. Apparently the mountain biking starts tomorrow – can’t wait to see what that’s all about!!

No doubt tomorrows press will be full of the mens  GB 4 x 100m team cocking in up in the baton change, but come on there were a couple of novices in that team and to change a baton while running at silly speeds is not easy. I remember doing it at school (slowly) yes we did real sport in my day – well apart from Primary School when we had to roll round being a leaf blowing in the wind. Believe it or not they still do the same thing only they updated it to washing on a line – I’m not kidding. I did it on a P.E course last year. Then there was the giraffes can’t dance lesson………..sorry I’m rambling again. but you do wonder how we win anything in the Olympics teaching stuff  like that in P.E!!

2.5 miles in 22 minutes and 22 secs

Queen of Speed (I don’t think!)

Bring it on
