Well, I managed my seventeen mile run. It went much better than i was expecting, and i completed it in under 3 hours – which means i’m on course of a marathon finishing time of 4hrs 30 – 5hrs.
Now, long distance running can be quite a lonely, boring hobby. So I would like to thank some of the local kids for making my run much more interesting. Yes, whilst i was out running last Saturday, some of Dartford’s finest thought that it would be amusing to throw the fruits of the nearest tree at me whilst i was running past. Crab Apples were raining down on me from all angles, and i felt like an extra from the film, Platoon, as I trying to get past them! Fortunately for me, their aim was not the greatest, and i only got caught by one glancing blow to the side.
I recovered well from the run, and felt no ill effects the next day. Just been taking it easy with my running this week – three five milers during the lunch hour.
My fundraising page is coming along nicely, and i am now almost half way to my fundraising target. If you haven’t been on to my page, check it out on the link above.
