Can we do it?

imageA cold and frosty morning greeted me today on my return to running as I went round Temple Newsam parkrun with Helen.  I wimped out of running to parkrun which was probably a good idea since although it was slow (for both of us), it still felt like relatively hard going!  Since the parkrun was taken-over by Crossgates Harriers, there was cake afterwards so that was nice.  When we got home I did complete my planned 8 miles by an easy out and back.  This still felt hard and I’m hoping it’s because of the tail end of my cold – surely I can’t have lost that much fitness in two weeks!

That’s now a total of 11.5 miles for the month and a planned long run tomorrow.  I won’t disclose how long that’s supposed to be, we’ll just see how far I get!

100 to do in Febuary can we do it? Yes we can!

  1. Did I see you on Wakefield Road yesterday. We were driving up to Springfield Garden Centre and I’m sure I saw you not far away from Jaw Bones running towards half way house. We were only a short time, no more than 10-15 minutes and I swear I saw you again on the way home near Half way house.
