Day 14 – “I get knocked down, but I get up again”

  • Distance – 7km
  • Total Distance – 100km

Whatever happened to Chumbawamba? Surely Burnley’s biggest export behind Sir Ian McKellan and Sean Dyche’s ridiculous voice. I would google them but…. I can’t arsed.

Anyhoo – That’s the 100 for the month up (about 63 miles). Not as impressive as years gone by, but I’m just clinging on to 8th place on the leaderboard.

Auswomble is a freak of nature – nobody runs as far as him. But I’d be right up there in and around second if I was properly fighting fit/motivated – a little depressing. I think I’ll try to overtake Trevstarr though – if only because I disapprove of the use of two r’s in quick succession in a name. Even if it is his actual second name, there is still no excuse. When I was at school I used to know a boy called Mike Starr and he always had a better computer than me, so I’m dealing with a lot of repressed emotions here, clearly.

More positively – I went for a lovely run today with an old friend, and it was a fairly gentle 7km without any pain. Lovely to see him – we haven’t met in person for years and years – and especially nice to meet while we trotted around Aberystwyth. The weather was lovely too. Even an afternoon and evening wrestling with the Biostatistics Beast couldn’t dispel the general air of a good day….
