This Blog started out as a record of my efforts to compete in the Gt Eastern Half Marathon 2006. Since then I entered but had to withdraw from Flora London Marathon 2008 due to injury. After having to take months off to recover I am now ready and willing to become a runner again!

For a change I went the other way round today and, my goodness, for some reason it seemed a heck of a lot longer - won't be doing that again!
Still got a slight niggle in the back of my right leg and buttock for for once it seemed to be slightly less today. I am stretching and doing situps when I get back and have been eating very healthy this week, so hopefully the scales will be kind to me tomorrow.....

Rhona and I did the 4 mile run that I did on Wednesday, bless her! I hope she's not afraid to say No.
And the best bit, on our way back we ran into our old running partners, Sheila and Laura. They ran back with us for a bit and we had a quick catch-up. Can't wait to be fit enough to be able to run with them again.
After lunch, Steve and I went for a walk - 9 miles. We are in training for the Coast to Coast Walk holiday we have booked for the summer.
Had a bit of sciatica which was very uncomfortable. I have done lots of stretching and just hope it doesn't cause me too many problems.
Think I may sleep well tonight, feeling exhausted!

Had a late start for work so made the most of it and went for a run this morning. The weather was so much kinder to me today, although I am guessing most people will have been unhappy that the sun has disappeared.
As I was feeling ok, I decided to go a bit further and ran round the lake and up the track into the woods. A little bit of hill work....and a mile or so extra, so feeling well chuffed.
