And no, to those of you who know I keep animals, I am not a acquiring a pig!
This morning I ran the 2nd race in the Leicestershire Road Running League winter series the Desford 10k which was actually held in Market Bosworth (I believe the usual venue is undergoing some work) and was a little disappointed to wobble round in 62:44 (chip time) which is about 4 minutes off my pb.
Luckily I was our ninth runner and so not one of the eight who count for league position which is just as well as I found it a struggle right from the outset today and it never got any better! It was only when I got home and headed for the shower that I noticed in the mirror that I appear to have gained quite a few wobbly bits that I didn’t have a month or so ago and upon weighing myself I found that over half a stone has crept on without me noticing. I am hoping that this is the reason for my less than startling run this morning.
It is therefore strict diet time. If anyone sees me so much as look at a bar of chocolate or bag of crisps then please feel free to hit me with something hard and heavy! Here’s hoping that next time I post I will have regained my usual svelte and streamlined (ha ha!) figure!
