Getting Ahead

Posted on: 22 Apr 2021

When we last saw our intrepid tubby fella he had boldly printed out a marathon training plan without a thought for his own personal safety. That's the kind of guy he is.

With all kinds of bluster about 'getting ahead' before the training plan starts on the 26th April it remained to be seen if this was all talk....

....but it wasn't you know ;)

With nerves akin to my first marathon, I headed out last week on what was a lovely day for it! At the risk of sounding like Goldilocks; not too hot, not too cold, it was just right.

My other recent test run had contained some walking but not this time friends, no sir. A convincing 5km run, slow but steady and I’m on my way.....again. I’d certainly earned my first pub pint of the year that afternoon! Musical highlights keeping me motivated were:

Shooting Star - Flip & Fill
East Bound and Down - Jerry Reed

Keep on running!
