One of my favourite episodes of Some Mothers Do Ave Em was where Frank created havoc when attending a PR course. He annoyed the host with the mantra “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better” which curiously is a real creation of the French self improvement guru Émile Coué. While I couldn’t claim that all that applies to me, I do now have the feeling after scaling back my training, I am making some progress.
This evening I ran the fun-packed “Flat Cap” 5 mile trail race. It starts near the Leggers Inn, Dewsbury and there was pie and peas together with great ale on offer afterwards. You get extra kudos for running in a flat cap.
While I wouldn’t claim my time as fast, it wasn’t bad for the challenging terrain and more importantly I felt good.
