7 miler

Just got back from what was supposed to be a long slow run but i ended up going to quick for the first 2 miles and ended up paying for it at about 5.5 miles feeling sick and slow. Sooo hungry when i got back and have just stuffed myself with an Omelette and a massive ham salad sandwich washed down with several gallons of Juice.

Ran 7.05 miles in 1:02:04 @ 8:48 min/miles pace

Arse Headache

Last week i injured my back due to a large consumption of beer and a fall down a few steps. I seem to have damaged my Sciatic Nerve which runs from the spine down both arse cheeks and the back of the legs. I was out of action for about a week and as a consequence my left butt cheek has a constant headache pain.

Anyway i got my aching arse out for a run yesterday but not before much deliberation umming and trying to think of an excuse to just eat the Feta cheese that’s in the fridge instead. 3 painful miles later i was buzzing after getting that always difficult first run out of the way.

Sore Legs

The old pins are hurting after doing some good running over the last few days. Not huge mileage (that’s to come) but i have been putting a lot of effort into a few 4 milers. I am only going for a quick 3 miles in the morning.

Taking the canoe down the River Conwy tommorow should be quite interesting dodging all the Yachts as we paddle into Conwy Marina sometime tomorrow afternoon :)

This is the sound i make all day with the new cough who has decided to join in. When i go for a run it goes away but it comes back the moment i walk into the house. It seems to know it’s been away for a short period of time and obviously decides to make up for it because my chest sounds like a bag of marbles in a large metal tin shaken by a 4 year old.

Well i managed to do a 4 miler on Friday and when i got back from doing a little overtime at work this morning i did another 4 miles. Getting slightly high on the medicine i am taking or is that all the Coffee i had today?

Oh Man!

I have just run the hardest 3 miler in my life. I decided i had to do something and with a runny nose, sore throat and the extra poundage gained over the last few weeks i went for a run plod. The last time i felt physical pain like that was when i was in the Army. I was slow, heavy and constantly out of breath. Happy i did something but man is this gonna take awhile to get back in shape.

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.

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.
