Oh dear…

It’s all gone a bit pear shaped this past few days. Not that I’VE gone pear-shaped… that would be weird… though that’s not to say if you are pear-shaped, that you are weird…. some of my best friends are pear shaped and they are only a little bit weird.

Moving on…

My blogging has been:


…and my running has been:

(more pants)

…Today I woke up and felt energised and motivated. It was as though a strange force had gripped me and, even though I still had to lever my belly out of bed too, I… without the usual procrastination before a run… threw on my clothes, laced up my trainers, and headed out to face the morning’s run with barely a thought about fuelling, hydration or whether additional insulation was required at this time of day.

The first part of my run was predominantly down hill, and without having warmed up, I actually found this quite tough and lost my footing a couple of times but all was good as I then settled into a rythm on the flat section. There was then a short, restricted-access section which I negotiated quickly. I’ve done it quite a few times and the only time I had any trouble was typically when I’d had a couple of drinks, but the land owner is a fairly forgiving sort and at the time, could see my judgement was impaired so let me off without too much of a telling off.

Then I dragged my heavy load, still bulging from the indulgences of the festive period, along annoying section of gravel pathway before reaching the main road.

At which point I left the bin there, cursed myself for not having remembered to do it last night, and headed back to my warm comfy bed.

Here is a map of my route for anyone interested…

    Glad you made it. I hate when bin is so full you have to tread in it to fit more in which appends if you don’t react as quickly as you did.
