I’ll huff and I’ll Puff But at Least I’ve Run…..

marathon bedSo the alarm went off and I rolled over and thought about having another ten minutes snoozing -thankfully putting my running kit at the side of the bed did the trick. I battled CBA syndrome and dived out of bed. Its my first run in over a week, I knew it wasn’t going to particularly easy but I didn’t expect to huff and puff quite so much –  it was only two miles. Not only was it hard work, but my knee is niggling again – I am putting it down to the fact I haven’t done any form of exercise for over a week. I have to stay hopeful that I’ll be upping my mileage some time soon. preferably sometime before May 2013 -I’ve got a marathon to run!! Not my best run but I’m still glad I did it – I’ve got to keep sane somehow in the christmas countdown.

1.9 miles run

3 days to go

Bring it on

Gorillunners in the Mist (sorry!)

Awww, nowt to do with the blog though!!!

So today dawned rainy and miserable and just got worse, the curse of the Janathon weather strikes again. Still come six o clock the rain had sort of stopped and although the fog/mist rolled in (hence the title, rubbish I know but, I’m running out of ideas fast !) the good news was that Jack’s rugby training was still on meaning I got to do the first of my twice weekly runs with my running friend. We had planned an easy trot round as we put the world to rights, however it soon turned into more of a gallop with more huff and puff than conversation. Saving the world will have to wait until Thursday! Downside of rugby training 0n a wet night is the mud. It gets everywhere, its in the car (well my car, hubby won’t allow mud in his!) the washing machine and I’ve a lovely tide mark round the bath – again -and what possesed me to have lovely white fluffy towels………………..

The other good bit of news today was that the Nike + fairy seems to have paid a visit over night. My amazing Nike+ sportswatch (never works) has recovered from the jaws of death and is now working again, in fact it is almost accurate! (first time for everything) See how long it lasts this time.

So 5 miles in 47 minutes and 1 second, 118 Janthon miles done, will I reach my target of 150 miles in 31 days.

Janathon Day 25

Bring it on!
