And as I’m training for two marathons this year (Virgin London Marathon and Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso) it is something that cannot be avoided no matter how much I may want to because of the daily demands of Janathon! I’ve never been a great one for structured training plans, I tend to run as fast as I can as often as I can but one thing which I do absolutely insist on is my weekly long run and so I was very happy to complete just over 16 miles this morning, albeit at a very modest pace, especially as no walking was involved and not long after I got back the mist descended and hasn’t lifted since!
I felt quite good afterwards too which is something of a novel experience! A large portion of the rest of the day has been taken up with sawing logs for the woodburner and given how much my back hurts at the moment I’m tempted to claim it as further Janathon exercise!
Sheep of the day today (and I’m going to have to line them up for a photo session tomorrow ’cause I’m running out of pictures!) is Olympe, otherwise known as Big Bear because she is quite simply enormous, daft as a brush but enormous!
