Quiet pride


Where does the time go? Two and a half months ago I completed what was my toughest, yet most satisfying event in the CCC. It seems like it was years ago.  I've attempted to describe what the experience was like on many occasions but it is so difficult to put into words.  It all comes flooding back flicking through the photo's. Great memories.

Since my return I've had period of rest, but soon got back into the swing of things.  Simonside fell race (Thropton show), Sherman Cup cross country, the Gibside fruit bowl and a park run have all come and gone like a whirlwind.  Is this what happens once you reach 40!?

I have had a solid block of consistent training and also into my ninth week of Pilates classes.  I can highly recommend them, I'm definitely feeling the benefit.  It's not easy, mind you.

So, off to Leeds this weekend for the Abbey Dash 10k. My first time at this one and 17 months since my last 10k.  The weather looks particularly grim so I don't expect any fast times.

I'm enjoying my running and just taking it as it comes.  If I fancy a race I'll do it, I'm not planning too far into the future as it always ends up badly.  I still have a certain annoying chimp on my shoulder though.  He may be difficult to remove......
