Missed Target

294768Hey Runsters!

Just 7(!) weeks to go until I’m let loose in London so another looooong training run to build the stamina yesterday. My target was a distance of 18 miles but I suffered a comedy of technological errors. My iPhone decided that it didn’t know who I was and thought the best option would be to lock my phone for an hour and give me the option to call the emergency services 🤷🏻‍♂️

The upshot of this was that I had to do some emergency distance calculations in my head and at this juncture I should probably tell you that I failed at high school maths. Long story short is that when my iPhone finally decided that it wasn’t being stolen I discovered that I had ‘only’ covered 16.42 miles. As I was sat on the couch when I made this discovery I had no inclination to go back out and cover the additional 1.6 miles.

I’ll try again next weekend eh?

Musical highlights keeping this tubster rolling along across the miles were:

My Way - Frank Sinatra

All That She Wants - Ace of Base (yes really)

Keep on running!
