Day 5 – Sockblood

  • Distance – 7km
  • Total Distance – 34km

Ah, the unique runner’s pleasure of deciding to wear white socks for a run and then finding one of your toenails has decided to get bluddy-wid-it. When toenails are starting to protest then that’s normally a sign that the running shoes need to go – which will be a little sad as I’ve quite enjoyed my current pair (a jaunty red colour with those no-lace-laces you get on triathalon shoes). Apart from toeblood it was another 7km tootle around Aberystwyth today with little incident. The weather is really rather lovely and I’ve found a nice route that culminates in the last 3 km running down the prom, alongside the sea.

Another couple of days while all my bits shoogle into place and then I’ll start pushing the distance a bit, as I’m hopelessly off the pace on the Janathon leaderboard. I know it’s not all about the competition, but I have my dignity to think of.
