An advantage of the current job is that I get to travel around the country and meet friends and run with them.
So yesterday I ran with Coach and she saw the reality of my running .
We plodded slowly for 3 miles and came to the stunning conclusion that losing weight is the best way for my running to improve!
So no miracle cure, just got to eat better!
It was really great to run with Coach (and have a good natter) and I have been sent away to Cambridge to eat sensibly and get in some base training.
Need to plan in some long runs - 7 weeks to Robin Hood!
Set the alarm for early to get in a run before breakfast.
But Cambridge mozzies seem to have other ideas - a bite has become alarmingly red overnight and a swollen ankle is the result. A couple of years ago I ended up on antibiotics after a similar bite.
So I shall be keeping an eye on this. Meanwhile antihistamine rules.
And I'll settle for a brisk walk to and from the meeting.
