Welcome to my blog, where I write about all manner of things... 

To run or not to run?

... Not to run.

The Forest of Dean Half is on in less than seven days and I am not ready. I haven't run enough, trained enough and to be entirely honest, I am not enjoying running at all at the moment. Certainly not distances. The fitness is almost there but the conditioning isn't and running hurts more than it should.

Of the four events I have booked this year, I am zero from two. Not good. And not where I wanted to be.

So, I am going to regroup, get my running head straight and aim for the Mull of Kintyre Half at the beginning of June, possibly via the Bristol 10K mid-May. And from there it will be the long haul to the marathon at the end of September.

the happiest day...
