Full days

Two laps of my usual mile route today…

…to start the last set of multiple run days before the big challenge on 4th October. Not long to go now!

My days at the moment are busy but enjoyable. I’m mostly running and working but managing to keep on top of admin and housework too… just about! I am looking forward to my post-challenge weeks when I will be easing back on the training for a bit and returning to my coding and writing. I already have this year’s NaNoWriMo all planned out!

Geth is watching a lot of YouTube documentaries at the moment about ultrarunners who run 100-mile races, which is making my 1.2-mile lap seem very short indeed. It’s still fairly intense when you’re running it every hour on the hour though!

I’ve been pointedly ignoring the UK COVID situation (although Geth and I did watch the briefing earlier) because it’s depressing and there’s nothing I can do about it. Like everything else, taking it one day at a time is the best thing.

A similar day tomorrow, which I’m very happy about.

RNLI glass
I love this plastic tumbler, which came in my RNLI goody bag the first year I did the Great North Run. I’ve taken to drinking supermarket own-brand zero-sugar Lilt (sorry, ‘tropical crush’) in the evenings, as it is super tasty and non-caffeinated.

Today’s earworm playlist:

Mumford & Sons – ‘The Cave’
Cast of Pocahontas – ‘Colours Of The Wind’
Vera Lynn – ‘We’ll Meet Again’
Carter USM – ‘After The Watershed (Early Learning The Hard Way)’
