So you mean this is a running blog?

Here's a tiny update to go with my titchy tiny run for today. It was short and slow but I'm not going to analyse it too deeply, at least I'm back out there and still breathing at the end of it. It's been about 4 weeks since my last run, I fell into a deep [...]

The grass doesn't look too [...]

Ignoring Heart Rate
