Went for it

I really went for it tonight - and I reckon I did well. I took Mrs B and we ran like the wind - no, my mistake, Mrs B had the wind.

As I said I really pushed on around the same route in Flaxley wood as my two efforts last week. This time I meant it though. I covered the 9 and a bit kilometres in 45:34 and since it includes 1,000 feet of ascent I don't think that's too shabby for a lazy old git such as myself.

After having put on a few pounds over the last few months - shut it - I've started to reverse the rot. I've shaved off two pounds during the last two weeks - that was one long beard - ho, ho, ho. I'll be back to my racing weight in no time - now all I after to do is be able to run once I get there...
