Long day, short run.

I had to go into central London after work for an OU tutorial.  Were I Jovial Gnome, Run Tezza, Six Pack or Shaz Runs, this would have posed no great threat to Juneathon greatness, as I would merely have set … Continue reading

It was week two of the “speed up your 10km” club sessions this week.  I did go, but I only managed three of the five efforts before I called it a night.  On the plus side, the efforts that I … Continue reading
