Janathon Day 15.
Half way point (well as near as damn it!).
Congratulation to all Janathoners for getting to half way and especially to those who have done some awesome mileage. Six Janathoners are into triple figures already with quite a few more who are not far off. My respects also, as a non morning person, to the many Janathoners who have been regularly getting up before dawn to get their run in.
I’m really pleased at this half way point to have passed 50 miles. I now hope I can make 100 miles by the end of the month… It has become a competitive challenge, not against other runners, but with myself. I want to see if I can finish what I’ve started and run everyday this month and maybe clock up my highest mileage ever. It is amazing what the body can achieve – certainly more than I thought my legs were ever capable of.
Today I headed out to Hyde Park round the Serpentine and back. I was feeling a little tried to start but I plugged in my audiofuel batteries relaxed into the beat and went with the flow. Audiofuel didn’t disappoint. I ended up having a fantastic run, felt good and clocked a 10K in an hour including road junction pauses and dodging stop-start pedestrians.
Running into the wind is knackering.
Goose poo is slippery.
The over-taking ‘eye candy’ is better at the weekend in Hyde Park!
Notting Hill is a no-go zone on Saturday with stationary tourists and ‘NO – I do NOT know the way to Portobello Market!’
