Anti-Facebook, some Photos and Run Until You Drop (Day 9).

Random quick post…

In the past, when I’ve taken photos or had something to say about running it’s generally been on Facebook, but I’ve recently got completely fed up with the way Facebook in general takes over my life, so I’ve culled a loads of “Friends”, removed myself from a bunch of groups and uninstalled the apps from my phone with the intention of vaguely keeping an eye on it from a computer occasionally.  We’ll see how that goes 🙂

Parkrun PB :)

The last few weeks I’ve managed my planned 30 miles of running (each week with a 4-8 mile walk in there too) and on Saturday I decided to do my 2nd ever Parkrun (almost 2 years afer the first).

It went well – I managed a PB (down from 22:22 to 21:47) – so I’m really pleased with that.

This week (and I’m writing this 5 days into the week)… I haven’t run at all.  I’m not too bothered, I figure a break occasionally is a good idea.  I’ve got the Wimborne 10 mile race on Sunday, and I’ve now gone and planned a ridiculous run for (pretty much the whole of) next Wednesday.  I won’t say any more now, but watch this space as I’ll be pretty chuffed if I managed to do what I’ve planned.

Until next time… Happy Running!
