It’s started

I had to scrape the car this morning as I got up and set off for my swim.

I’ll let that just sink in.

But for me – that means it is now winter! For those of you not in the UK you might not realise that we’ve had a very, very mild Autumn. In fact, it’s been so warm that we haven’t really had an Autumn. So we’ve gone from summer to winter in the space of about two days.


On the upside, I got to use my great new bag properly for the first time today.

Juneathon 7

After a long day at work and a long week at work I didn’t feel like going for a run. In fact I didn’t feel like doing much of anything. Without Juneathon I wouldn’t have gone. But I feel that I’ve made a commitment to myself, and to all the other Juneathon participants. So go for a run I did.

Although I had a 15 minute lie down first!

20130608-072838.jpgIt was about 8:45 when I did set off and I promised myself I was going to take it nice and slow and just see what happens. I was lucky that it was a beautiful summer’s evening so it was a real pleasure to be out in it.

As I slowly plodded along I started to relax and enjoy it. And as I enjoyed it I wanted to go a bit further – so I did. In the end I did the furthest I’ve been for a while: just over 6.5kms at a pace of just over 6 mins/km.

Day 7 – 6.51kms in 39:50.

So far in the first week I’ve done:

1 rest
1 swim – 2.5kms
5 runs – 20.06kms

Thanks for the kick up the backside Juneathon.
