Happily Ever After
Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running
No Time To Rest

Training resumed today for this year’s major goal: the Yorkshire Marathon, which takes place in less than six weeks.
The good news, after Sunday’s overheated Great North Run, was that today’s effort was a mere 30mins of easy running, which happened to cover three miles. Tomorrow there’s 60mins to do. The equally good news was that my legs continue to feel fine, the worst discomfort the result of a slow 300-mile drive home yesterday plagued by roadworks, traffic jams and L-drivers plus the excitement of a halt while the occupants of five police cars corralled then arrested a boy racer.
Less good news is sunburnt shoulders. I’ll remember the sunscreen next time.
I’ve ordered my race photos, although they’re an uninspiring bunch, and checked out my finishing place – about halfway; 57,000 people registered for the GNR but I don’t know how many reached the start line.
The Great Scottish Run, in less than three weeks, will feature about half that number so maybe I’ll be able to get close to a pacer then. Which one I favour to is yet to be decided.
I have seen the photo on facebook, Lynsey showed me it. I could spot you straight away.
