Week 3 Day 1 Run Commute

My first run commute of 2017, despite still getting rid of the manflu from last week. Felt OK, but actually quite pleased with the overall time. Weighed myself afterwards and have dropped only one pound since just before Christmas which was disappointing at first but maybe not too bad given I usually pile on the pounds over Christmas every year.

Corralejo Town 6k

Very windy out there and I was already quite dehydrated. The tricky part was the main drag into town with nall the (other) tourists and finding that the route went onto the sand…

Week 51 Day 1 Walk to Work, Run Home

Back running after a few weeks’ illness; trying to shift the manflu still. Slowed down a bit by fire crews, police and ambulances at a fire on Bermondsey Wall.

I’ve lost 3½oz in the last couple of weeks … whoop!

Painful, Wheezing 5k Run Commute

Back after a 5 week lay-off due to manflu – still can’t shake it – and injuries. And my ankle isn’t fixed and my knee is playing up again, yadda, yadda…

And worse still, I’ve gained 1lb despite walking 75.4km to and from work.

Week 43 Day 4 Walk to Work

Lots of niggling little injuries and my duff knee is playing up at the moment, so I decided to bite the bullet and finally swap my very old work shoes for proper running shoes – oh the lack of style! – to try to limit the damage being done: last week I walked 49km apparently. So I’ve deided that for these more organised walks – walking to and from work if it’s not raining – I’d use the Garmin and and some new all black Nike Free RNs so I could record the mileage and monitor the life of the shoes to change them at probably 640km rather than the 480km of my running shoes. I almost certainly won’t bother with ‘full’ updates like these for the walks though!

Week 43 Run Home

Over a month since my last run and still nursing some niggling injuries, so I stopped the run short. Lost two pounds since before my last holiday which is positive as we overate in Malta 🙂
