Today I completed W6R1 - with which I was pleased as I had noted others saying how it's difficult to go back to "interval" running. I found it tougher than usual, I think this was mostly because I was running on very unkempt grass; but I did it.
There was one thing which I felt needed a post however, and it needs a little context. I was running in my local park today, which has a play-park for children. Part of my route took me to within earshot of the play park.
In the 8min section of the podcast, I heard one of the people with children remark: "come and look at this elephant of a man get all sweaty!", ordinarily I would have let this slide, but I felt this warranted a reply. As that person was laughing at me, I simply said to them:
"If they were my children I know whose example I would rather they follow".
So, hecklers - heckle away! If my decision to get fitter and lose weight offends you so much, I am sorry. Insult me all you want - just not in front of your kids.
This man can!
