Today, I was supposed to be doing sprints on the sand…..have you seen the sand just after the tide has gone out?? it was like trying to run on broken glass while carrying a bag of dog crap…I must have looked like I’d had a few. I was actually carrying a bag of dog crap! Then I got distracted. I saw mussels, funny shells with live things inside, a crab that looked like jaws had chewed it up and spat it out and I found some actual seashells! So, despite my short attention span I did actually get some good sprints in. I wore my purple ON cloud runners on the sand, it was make or break my ankle on those ripples and I came out ok. I will have built up some good strength and suppleness in my ankles that’s for sure. If you see me on a zimmer tomorrow, you’ll know it didn’t work out too well for me 🤣
My first Post….yikes!
So, I thought I’d start a little blog to see what all the fuss is about and to drum up some support which will hopefully lead to more donations for my London Marathon charity for 2021 which is United Response. I’ve created a newsletter to update people on my journey so far.
During phase 1 of my training you’ll see that I’ve been running with my ‘training crew’, my Westies, Paddy and Louie. Paddy (blue collar) is the lazy one and Louie (red collar) will run for miles! We have had a lot of fun so far and I’m sure there will be plenty more to come. For some reason my white terriorists love to jump in every crap puddle along the way, so by the end of the run it looks like they’ve been dunked in the Ganges! 😭
