One of my irregular readers (Ewan) has made some veiled threats that long and meandering blog posts are not his cup of tea.
So, here goes, a brief post:
I am now up to 2.5 miles on my long run (that’s not a decimal point error) .
I was out for a run yesterday during our local marathon and making it home with 2.5 miles on the legs without them falling off was a great achievement.
The hardest part of such short runs? Apart from the humiliation it’s the fact that my mind is planning the next ultra marathon when I reach 5 pain free miles.
Some 20th Century despot (or national hero depending on your IP address) said that the longest journey begins with a single step.
I’m on my long journey.
