I turned 39 on Friday and one of my presents was Seb Coe's new autobiography. Now I can't say I share all of his political views but he was one of my idols as a kid, watching him and Steve Ovett break record after record, week in week out.
Having failed miserably on the treadmill when I wasn't quite over the flu, this was the perfect present and the perfect kick up the arse needed to get me back out there. So i went back to the trusty W5R3 and despite not running for a month, I made it through the 20 minutes without a problem.
I feel so much better for it and can't wait to try 30 minutes on Xmas morning - the perfect start to my festive day Happy Xmas running everyone!
