March Madness


Marchathon Day 1.

This morning I decided that I’d had enough of being dragged down by my cold/lurgy.  I told it that it was over, I’d had enough and it had to go.  Then I went for a run.  It is March after all, and after my poor running performance in February (27 miles total compared to 125 miles in January) , I realised that I must have a challlenge to keep up my running.

So I have a new personal challenge – Marchathon.  Just like Janathon but in March.  Shame the weather isn’t a little more spring-like!

I’ve not run for over a week or exercised for 6 days so my legs were ache free and fresh. Couldn’t say the same about my wooly head!  I probably made my usual mistake of going off too fast in my enthusiasm to be running again because after the first mile I felt a bit woozy and my lungs were burning.  I didn’t plan to run too far just to blow off the cold and get myself going.  I think it did the trick, I was suitably red and sweaty by the end and it certainly cleared the old head  – I’ve not needed a tissue since!

Day 1 sorted:    3.46 miles   31.35 mins

Playlist:    Audiofuel gridmix plus plenty of un-rhythmic sniffing

Goodbye cold – hello Marchathon!
