Kid woke up early and I had to finish dumb-bells and do the ironing while watching TV with him. Next challenge: get through morning in office without bursting out into Go Jetters theme song
Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal - What is it like to be a bat
Ear a lot better this morning. Managed a very slow but quite long 30km run. Now for the ultra I just have to do that, then another 25km, and some hills instead of flat... hmm. Saw a load of cute bunnies nibbling grass from towpath past Kingston, & flight of swans. #running

#running 12 x 400m intervals with 30 second recoveries this morning. Ouch. "I live my life a quarter mile at a time... Nothing else matters. For those 2 minutes or less I'm free."
Interview with creators of the Go Jetters music. Can confirm it makes 5 year olds jump off the sofa.
A slow 21km today, took a drink bottle & felt a lot better. Not getting much chance for super long runs to train for the ultra, but hopefully two halves back to back will help. #running
Foolishly tried a half marathon training run without water or food today. Did great till 17km when suddenly felt like I was running through treacle. Made it to the end but a bit outside target range for time. #running
Short run this morning. Haven't crossed these stepping stones since I was a kid, just made it but came so close to toppling in, had to grab with my hands. #running
Did a glacially slow 21km run this morning. Would have liked to go longer but out of time. Probably best not to push too hard with this ear infection anyway. Did a bit of trail which was a good change and useful. #running
