Seven days down…

There can be very few benefits of getting up at 5 o’clock but the fact that I got todays run in before it rained certainly counts as one of them! A four mile run into town and back again was enough for me this morning bringing my total for Juneathon thus far to 71k.

And boy didn’t it rain! I do the 34 mile journey to work on my Suzuki Gladius motorbike which is both quicker and cheaper than using the car. Of course the downside to this is when, like this evening, we see rain of biblical proportions! As luck would have it I chanced across a Spada rainsuit which I bought for just £3o in a sale in a local bike shop and I’m delighted to report that it works wonderfully well as everything inside the suit was bone dry – result!

About JovialGnome

Heavily into running 20 years ago with a PB of 1.42.00 in the Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 1985 and 3.48.49 in the Telford Marathon in 1986 - then for some reason I just stopped and have done little or no physical exercise between then and 2 or 3 years ago! I've now moved to Boston in Lincolnshire where I really enjoy looking after my 13 Ryeland ewes and 1 ram and am rejoicing in the distinct lack of hills! I suspect that sub 4 hour marathons are gone forever but hey, I'm having a great time trying!

  1. I think getting out early doors was the best trick today – hoping to do the same tomorrow! Well done on 4 miles, I bottled at 2 today!
