What An Offa

I really struggled to raise this morning. I was just about to switch to a late start, having switched off the alarm, but suddenly remembered I had an early morning meeting. Would not have been good form to miss it. Things soon picked up after my ninth cup of coffee - joking, it was after my fifteenth. Amazingly my legs feel OK and best of all my back feel tons better. Not quite fixed but I'm no longer moving around like a ninety year old, more late sixties...

Anyway, here, for the record, are my runs - I'll rephrase - my stages from the weekends Offa's Relay. It really was a great weekend and I can't wait for next years. Especially as I'm hatching an idea to run the whole lot, and utilise the relay weekend as support. I reckon a 60 hour attempt could be on. Start 6am Friday morning and finish 6pm Sunday. Meaning three 12 hour days of running with two over night camps. It tempts me.
