Cracking X-Mas

Merry X-mas everyone sorry about the lack of posts. I have been away on holiday in West Wales for a week with family. We stayed at an old Farm and had no Internet access could hardly get a signal on the mobile.  I will post some pics as soon as i find the dam lead that connects to the PC thing.

Deep Heat

After the 10 miler on Sunday i have been rubbing copious amounts of this stuff into my legs. I took a 2 day rest and then managed to get out for a quick 4 miler.

Porridge Is The Key

Got up had some Porridge and hour later i ran a 10 miler. I haven’t run into double figures for quite a long time and just felt like going a bit longer than usual today. Felt good all the way round.

Last night i managed to get out and do just over 4 miles and because i haven’t run for a couple of days i did what i always do and shouldn’t do and that’s run to fast. I was averaging just under 8 minute/miles and just over 8 minute miles in the hilly bit. So this morning i got up feeling a bit sore and went for a 5 miler on a route i haven’t been on in ages. Also very up and down.

1 more week of work and I’m off on holiday until January the 6th.

Fell Running

Just got back from Penrith after being on another course. The B+b i was staying in had no wireless or Internet access. I’m reading a book about Fell Runners at the moment “Feet In The Clouds” if you find people thinking we are a bit odd because we run a bit these people are on a different planet. Amazing stuff and something that i think is going to change the way i run forever. More on this in another post.

I have not had any alcohol for just over 27 days (who’s counting) i had a rest day today and last night i decided to have a few beers and some Cava and as such I’m not exactly in the best of health today. So today I’m taking it easy and making Bread. I will post the Bread making pics soon. And yes that is my bloodshot eye.

I was expecting huge amounts of Snow today but this was all i could find. I went for a 5 miler while i was at work in those hills, it absolutely pissed down towards the end hence the fastest mile of the 5 is the last one which also had an uphill bit. Didn’t stop me from getting soaked.

Sweaty Chin

Have a picture of my sweaty chin after this evenings 4 miler.
Really pleased with the pace of this run. After the rest day yesterday i felt like trying to find a comfortable quicker pace, if there is such a thing. I wanted to show you a photo of the worst mp3 player in the world but even the picture didn’t come out very well that’s how shite it is and i can’t be arsed to go all the way downstairs to take another snap.
