Hot then you’re Cold…

Apart from the theme song to “Masterchef”, this is me at the moment.

I generally only blog when I’m running and feeling good about it and I guess the catalyst for this blog was the “doc” inquiring about my running – thanks Cilla! I blog to keep me honest and I genuinely love the accountability it provides, although conversely I hate it when I do not blog/run.

On the positive side I’ve maintained a 3 times weekly visit to the gym and since my last run I’ve managed a 2k and 3.5k on the treadmill – hardly the ideal preparation for 21.1k in 6 days time. yep I’m going to run it if my knee feels ok and I’ve set a time of 2 hours 20 minutes; this should give me ample walk breaks.

Mad?? you bet!

I’m listing from feeling good to feeling like crap – in a running sense. One day my knee feels great and the next it feels like I’ll never run again. Damn, I still have two unread copies of Runners World that I haven’t read – usually I’ve read each edition with 24 hours of getting them in the mail.

    I’m the same with blogging when I’m not well.

    I’m making the other choice, don’t even think I’ll do the 10k. Be careful you don’t do any long term damage!
