Its better to burn out than fade away My My Hey Hey. We went to our friend’s funeral last week and Neil Young’s words were on his service sheet (he had a band in the late 60’s and his own songs were also played at his service) just so lovely to have his music to remember him by too.
Just feeling very lucky to be able to get out there and run and have got myself back on track this week. I had intended to make my third run of the week Saturday, but Saturday and Sunday were forecast for strong winds, so decided I’d better get out today. My 10k race is in 5 weeks time and because my first (and only) 10k was February last year, (I know, I know) talk about leaving it late 🤭 thought I’d better have a go! Light winds and not too hot, so it was ideal. I did have a bit of a wobble at 6k as I made the mistake of running past my house and those pesky gremlins started on at me to stop, so pulled a jelly baby out of my belt and the sugar did its job and I ran on. I bought 2 huge packets of English jelly babies at Christmas 😊 Just yum!
Anyway 10k done and although I’m not going to break any records - ever, my time was 11 minutes faster than last years and I got to tick off my 5k and 10k Strava January challenges already. Well Happy! Happy stretching and running everyone.
