A wee bit behind

No. of km done: 563
No. of km to target: 437
Conditions: Cloudy and warm
Starting music: Galvanise by The Chemical Brothers
Finishing music: Better Man by Pearl Jam

I'm about 10 miles back from where I should be just now - not from injury, but from just being really busy at work for a week or so. Bit annoying, but I should be able to catch up fairly quickly.

Think it may nearly be new shoe time again - the current pair are feeling a little bit more leaden. Think I get my moneys worth anyway :)

In other bargainacious news, I think (for me) the hayfever season is over too, so no more antihistamines and nasal spray. That's another £10 a month saved!

Hard work

No. of km done: 540
No. of km to target: 460
Conditions: Sunny and warm
Starting music: I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues by Elton John
Finishing music: Roam by The B-52s

Well the weather's taken a turn for the warmer the last few weeks, which is partly why I've been a bit slack on the blogging - I've been tending to go evenings and weekends rather than during the day to avoid the warmest bits, and so often haven't had the time afterwards to write up a post.

Not quite sure what my Nike+ thing is up to at the moment. Yesterday it said I was 10 miles behind. Today, I'm on target, and I only did a 5 mile run. It seems to forget one from time to time. Quite possibly because it's bored logging the same old route every week. Think I might investigate some new ones just for a bit of variety (plus I could do with another street route for when winter comes and the towpath turns into something resembling a World War I trench).

As ever, the sponsor-me-do link is: should you fancypopping a few quid my way. Ta!
