A Quickie

Somehow dragged myself into work after a not so great night's sleep and felt v. zonked after the long run yesterday. Needless to say my insightful colleague neighbour Dave, on seeing my face this morning pointed out that I should run away from the rat race, sell the house, put it all in the bank and hitchhike around the world. Have been contemplating the notion all day. Though I shouldn't grumble really, being employed in the current climate should make me grateful. Just can't help but feel that I've been sucked into a material world that places such a burden on us all. I shared my lucky dip exit plan with Dave. He thought it needed a bit more work.
I'm very sleepy tonight so thought I'd just post that I squeezed a brisk 5 in tonight, averaged 7.09/mile pace in my aerobic endurance zone. It was a glorious night of sun and fresh breezes. I'd been gazing out of my office window all afternoon dreaming of slipping on my trainers and running out of the door. The reality didn't disappoint though am tired and achy from the efforts of yesterday. (UC must be mad if he thinks I can be goaded into the full M!). Should sleep well tonight. Night.

The full is not as bad as you think it would be. The half has easily as much uphill as the full and in my opinion is a tougher race. The first half of the full up to Kettlewell is lovely running and the last bit the 2 routes follow each other. Give it a go, you will not regret it.

Thanks Bantam for the tips, did UC put you upt to it? UC they're all ganging up on me. You're trying to turn me into an ultra runner

Kate, am quite taken by your colourful holiday kit, looks almost good enough to eat, or have I been without cake for too long...
