      Ran just over 4 miles earlier. First time out running in a long time having neglected it badly this summer.

      Desperately needed - the mind had become incredibly lazy, cynical and irritable. Definitely bluntens those bad, energy sapping thoughts! F**k that!

      Well done, now just keep it up, biggest mistake people make with running when first starting or going back to running is they run to fast because you think you can start off where you finished and you end up hating it and stop.

      Run slow and if it gets too much walk then run again once you get your breath back.

      I guarantee you this way you will enjoy it and carry on running.

      Great advice. So so true and it takes a big conscious effort to pace yourself down to something that you are comfortable with. Took me a long long time to get to that stage as I often found myself gassed after a short distance

      A big fat No from the London marathon ballot.

      No great surprise it’s such a lottery.

      As my ASICS Gel trainers had come to the end of their life I thought I would try out the new fad of a energy returning foam trainer.

      Couldn’t justify the cost of Vaporflys so got a pair Saucony endorphin speed.

      Can’t yet say if they make me run faster but boy on long runs they are such a joy. After long run legs just feel so fresh 😊

      One of my favorite trainers. Be careful though if you need any arch support because the foam breaks down pretty quick and has caused me some knee pain.

      I love them though, so light and bouncy. I only get about 300 miles from a pair though.

      I haven't been running for a long time. I really need to get back into it. I felt much better when I was running.
