I went out today and zonked along the river for 7 kilometres in a stunning 38'16. Each K was well under 6 minutes and I felt incredible pleased to have done that. The sun shone, the Thames sparkled and the temperature was perfect for running ie. not too hot. Some dude was cutting the grass at Marble Hill House which filled the air with delicious fragrances.
Did anyone see Mo Farah get his gold the other day? The commentators kept saying "This is soooo slow.....Mo isn't at his best.....he's got a lot to do...."
etc etc..... HOW COULD THEY SAY THAT?
His last lap was 52 seconds!! It was incredible to watch and he won it in a REEEEALLY SLOWWWWW time of 14 minutes something!! Imagine that? My best time is still sub 26 mins and I'm almost double his age so essentially.....I'm a world champion gold medal winning genius!! (If only!)
Just a short one today as Mrs Dan is ringing the dinner gong. I shall bid ye all a pleasant evening and wish you all a great run tomorrow (if you;re going out that it....!)
