Swallowed a Fly

I didn't entirely swallow it, mores the pity. It lodged in my throat and wriggled or fluttered as semi-masticated flies have a tendency to do. This was 4k into the "5k Your Way" event for council and PCT employees. It had gone fairly well up til that point, I had pootled along in a resolutely [...]

I probably looked like a heavily wired suicide bomber, good [...]

Smack talk from the direction of JogBlog had me climbing out of my pyjamas and into my running shoes, ready to head out into the cold wet night. I thought a quickish blast around the block would be sufficient to stop her thinking I was anywhere close to slacking off yet, and also I could [...]



Utility Run

I'm supposed to be off work at the moment on study leave but it may as well be called gardening leave as I'm spending all my time on the allotment. Today I thought I'd make my non-studying day a little bit more productive by running to the plot and I'm glad I did as it [...]

I've taken my time to write this post because I'm not sure whether to come clean about my sins or to attempt a bluff. I was sent the Nike+ Sportband to try out at the beginning of the week but as I don't have holes in my running shoes I couldn't possibly go running before [...]
