I went flying on my run last night. There's a section of the Dales Way that is a pot-holed lane with no streetlights. One minute I was running along nicely head full of pleasant thoughts and the next I tripped and hit the ground hard. My glasses flew off and I lost the batteries in my Petzyl. My Pertex jacket and best Smartwool top both have holes in them around my left shoulder and I have cuts and abrasions on my left side from fore-head to left knee. I felt a bit shook up last night but don't feel too bad this morning. Six hours in the car today might not be a lot of fun mind!

It was eight weeks to go until our wedding on Saturday. Most of the bigger things (church, dress, rings, hotels, my cuff-links) are sorted now and we're largely down to fine-tuning and sorting our wedding day race
We spent the weekend in Devon and should have been running the Grizzly yesterday. Around the middle of last week we decided we are in no kind of shape to do a mostly runnable 20 miler so we spent the day with Stef's lads instead
I'm running out of time to lose some weight and my training is still all over the place with decent weeks logged then weeks when I get out once at best. Last week was a 'one runner', albeit a very enjoyable Wednesday head-torcher

I've been fat and lazy all winter. Wedding planning has been a convenient excuse for not running, but wasn't really ever all invasive time-wise, and is coming along well now with around nine weeks to go before our big day. Therefore my pre-wedding streak started on Monday. I have long enough to (a) shift some lard and (b) beat my previous longest effort. Two short road runs have been done and my Hope is fully charged for tonight's headtorcher. Streak on!
