I ran out in 18 minutes. I ran back in 16.15... not bad on tired legs.
And my lucky legs get a well-earned couple of rest days now before the Trafford 10k on Sunday. Seeing as any ability to run faster than 9 minute miles seems to have escaped me at the moment, I'm not planning on breaking any records, personal or otherwise, but I am looking forward to only running 6 miles! Listen to me... only 6 miles... unbelievable!
PS... thanks for all your kind words of encouragement and congratulations lately. On a side note...
Abradypus - When I replace my Impressive Muscles with even more impressive ones, I will happily pass the old ones on... we'll arrange details closer to the time!
Fortnightflo and Jensruns2011 - I am LOVING your adjectives... superhuman and hardcore... and am currently contemplating how I can drop them into daily conversation with people... 'Well, yes, you know... I am quite a hardcore person, some might say 'superhuman', but I wouldn't like to brag...'
Shazruns - bruises definitely help the Other Half understand that you are not visiting Champneys (Other equally relaxing Spa's are available) every week and rather are being tortured half to death... I hope your eyes are feeling better :-)
Fairweatherrunner - do it... do it... do it... I am proof (in training) that you don't need to be a seasoned runner to meet the challenge of a marathon.
Pete - Thanks for all the encouragement and support in my running recently... I couldn't have done it without you!
Distance: 3.5 miles
Weather: windy and showers.
