Hello, hello, what’s this then?? A niggling lower back pain!? What the bloody whatsis!? No. No. No. Last Sunday’s run was fabulous. It was, however, not without an eansy weansy bit of pain.

Ran a 10.5k mountain trail race today in a small village near Grenoble. It was absolutely awesome!! We got some rain last night, but the skies were clear blue by this morning and warm enough to run in shorts and t-shirt (a little chilly in the beginning but we warmed up quickly).

Tried taking several action shots from ground level and I have to admit I look best in this one. Ha!… Continue reading Little mountain run! Climbing cat! Poem.
Nice Saturday pace run. As I pushed myself extra hard on my last couple of runs I decided I should take it easier today, set a pace and try to keep it. I also felt good doing 15k rather than my (of late) regular 21.1k. Kept an average speed of 10kph which gave me… Continue reading Pace run. Cat pic. Poem.
