I am still here & still plodding away!

IMG_0760Reading Harry Hole Book 2 at the moment. Also gone through 63% mark. I need to do 46 miles/month for the next 4 months to hit my goal of 500 miles before I am 50 in April!!

Just gone through Half Way Mark!!

Half Way Mark!!

50% done & dusted, However I need to get ahead as I am slightly behind.

42 the meaning of life!

So I might be a little only a little behind to reach my goal of 500 miles before 4/4/14.

Quick calculation leaves me needing to knock down 42 miles per month from now through March. So the 10 mile week now needs to be a must. Pushed out 5 miles this morning. #gottogetbackontrack

Last run of the summer!?

So has summer come & now gone? Lovely warm evening run in the sunshine this evening (5 Sep 2013). But by all accounts the weather is going to change over night!

I have gone through the 200 mile marker. 40% done! However the sinking feeling that I’ve just had my last summer run.

New Shoes

In the words of PAOLO NUTINI

Woke up cold one Tuesday,
I’m looking tired and feeling quite sick,
I felt like there was something missing in my day to day life,
So I quickly opened the wardrobe,
Pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean,
Topped it off with a pair of old shoes,
That were ripped around the seams,
And I thought these shoes just don’t suit me.

Hey, I put some new shoes on,
And suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody’s smiling,
It’s so inviting,
Oh, short on money,
But long on time,
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
And I’m running late,
And I don’t need an excuse,
’cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes.

Woke up late one Thursday,
And I’m seeing stars as I’m rubbing my eyes,
And I felt like there were two days missing,
As I focused on the time,
And I made my way to the kitchen,
But I had to stop from the shock of what I found,
A room full of all off my friends dancing round and round,
And I thought hello new shoes,
Bye bye them blues.


Take me wandering through these streets,
Where bright lights and angels meet,
Stone to stone they take me on,
I’m walking to the break of dawn. [x2]

[CHORUS (x2)]

Take me wandering through these streets

Got to get my Running Mojo back!

Out of sync with my running & I was doing so well! I need to make sure I do at least 3 runs a week or I will never achieve my 500 miles before next April.
