Weeks 4, 5 and 6 – Please donate… your eyes, tweets, blogs, contacts

For the running, this has been a patchy time. I have had disruptions from more snow, work and travel and – much more pleasant – a short visit from my son, back from Uni in London for a few days.

But that’s ok, I’m ticking over nicely and getting back to the long runs. I’m still a few months from needing to work at a proper training programme as such, and actually I’m a bit frustrated that that’s the case. I’m one of those people who actually enjoys the training rather than seeing it as a grinding trudge, and I’d really like to be able to get going. For now, I need to keep healthy, build a sound base, and not jeopardise anything by going too far, too often, too soon.

I’m happy with that at the moment. But it’s interesting, it’s already different: every run already feels like a marathon run.

Anyway, in this last couple of weeks I have made real progress on another aspect and organised my charities, including a donation webpage.

Please have a look at the Fundraising tab on the top menu above.

If you can donate some money then I would be really, really grateful: please click here.

But in any case, please donate a couple of minutes and have a look at my charities, tell friends and family about them, and tweet, blog and circulate their details. I really hope that you never need their help, but just in case…

Body: Ok so far. Odd soreness back of  L knee (soft tissue) still there but no worse, but its fading. Endurance good; pace ok when I go for it; length building.

Spirits: Good, positive and building. Realistic. Still 50/50, with care. Every run is now a marathon run in my head, even though I’ve not started yet.
