23-Jan-13 Down, but not out!

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 23, 2013 at 7:47 pm

Phew. It was close tonight, but I was nearly completely down and out, as I clipped someone’s drive and virtually nose dived in the kerb! Tom Daley would have been well proud of me, but certainly not a 10 for style!

After last nights snow run, tonights run was extremely cold, but at least dry and the pavements were mainly clear of ice. A first for a couple of days!

After running a very respectable 2.5 miles with Grainne, I then continued and ran my longest run yet, hence the title of my blog, which was 6.05 miles; in a very respectable time as well (9 and half minute miles), so extremely pleased and relieved I recovered from the dive!

My stats according to MapMyRun:
Day 23 – 6.05 miles
Janathon to date – 71.53 miles
Miles per day to hit 100 – 3.55 miles

Not a video of my fall, but came across this when searching.

Quite a backdrop!

Me and a number of my colleagues at SThree are doing Janathon for orphaned children through SOS Children’s Villages. Our goal is to try and raise £1,000 through our own and others donations.
