Another pause for the cause. Back to it this morning. I went for a 6 miler and it hurt like hell. I felt great afterwards though.

We’re all going to a Castle today just up the coast if my legs can manage it.

Cor Blimey!

I’m still running. Sorry about the lack of posts i don’t even get a chance to watch the Simpsons these days. Work is sucking big time. I have to work with aggregates and i spend most of my day kind of pan handling granite in the lab. It’s tedious to say the least. I work in a new area of North Wales now near that sticky out bit close to Anglesea.

7 miles today and 4 miles yesterday.

I’ve managed a couple of 4 milers this week. I say managed because at the moment I’m working extra hours to get some more cash in the house and when i say extra hours i mean “normal” hours as opposed to my usual skiving 3 or 4 hours a day.

It looks like I’m gonna have to cancel running in the Snowdon Marathon this year. I think i have to face up to the fact i bit off more than i can chew. It’s quite a relief to say that because i was putting to much pressure on myself with regards to training. Mind you i saw a race advertised in Runners World magazine this month called the coast to coast which starts on the west coast of Wales through Snowdonia and all the way to the East coast mmmmmmm?……. naaaahhh!

:) have a great weekend.
