Juneathon day 4

A typical bank holiday, chilling out, catching up with twitter and a few Juneathon blogs. I then had a look at the running free online table of doom (Juneathon total) and noticed that some fellow Juneathoners have put in some impressive mileage over the weekend.  Time to up my game I thought. Tomorrow’s weather forecast also pointed to the fact that today might be the better day for a long run.

So a quick decision and Ed and I drove up to the cycle path with his bike where I could get in some decent traffic free miles. It started well with Ed keeping me at a decent pace, a lovely late afternoon run along the disused railway line with not too many other people around.  However after 2 miles I got stomach cramps and, to keep it brief, had to make a couple of unplanned pit stops. Just as well its June so there was lots of undergrowth to hide behind in my fluorescent pink top!

Anyway, too much information and all that.  It turned out to be a bad, stop-start, cut short run and I’m not eating quinoa for lunch before a run ever again if at all!

@arabilz made another version of todays Lego but it wasn’t publishable!

Ed modelling my cool new sunglasses sent to me (yes Ed, they are MINE!) for Juneathon from Polaroid which I will review properly in a blog soon.

5.37 miles

  1. I thought it was law for runners to over-share? 🙂

  2. quinoa is a food that still stands in my cupboard unopened, because i haven’t gotten around to finding a good recipe. after your blog: maybe i will delay that further. :O
