Twas proper cold out there tonight…it was raining too which was strange…freezing and raining… not an enjoyable combo…still it was a nice run and as you all know…finishing felt amazing.

Day 337 – Early to bed

Wow…was I tired tonight or what…I climbed into bed at 9pm and chilled here for a while.

Good run tonight…cold but beautiful starry sky… I stopped half way round my run to llok up and I saw a shooting star…and a satellite….who’s the man!  who’s the nerd! c’est moi!

Day 336 – Down to Reading for rugby

Grove U11s were playing away to Reading today so Jay and I set off early…it was a nice morning for it.  They were beaten by a well drilled team…good experience for Jay and I’m sure the skill gap will narrow as his team gain experience.

When we got back around 13:30 Em was cooking up a storm (roast beef) so I went out for my run…another enjoyable run but I was glad to get home and relax after a busy few days.

Day 335 – Drama Group showcase

Jay’s drama group had their end of term showcase today…Isaac was sick so Em couldn’t make it but I enjoyed it and recorded it for her.

While they were prepping for the performance I ran around Wolvercote common which is a fantastic place to run…lots of horses around showing a passing interest and I ran by.

Day 334 – Harry Potter Studios

Gryfyndor homeroom

What a great day….days hols from work and tickets for the family to go and see the Harry Potter studios in Watford.  I ran nice and early (for a holiday), about 10am, around the airfield…it was fresh and there were a few dog walkers…down the canal and then around the rugby field…a nice run…27 mins. We set off around noon…went for some lunch in Giraffe (which was super tasty) and sauntered down to Watford afterwards. Oh yeah…I’ve run over 1000 miles.

Day 333 – 24 minutes

I decided to enjoy the run this evening…I’m taking tomorrow off work so I was feeling in top form.  It was cold though…I’ve been running with a hoodie under my luminous running jacket to stay warm …of course I’m sweating buckets when I get home but at least I don’t freeze during the first mile.

Day 332 – Tired

My body has been feeling the length of the challenge for a little while…my back is sore and my knees aren’t tip top but today I have 99 miles to go…so I plan to see this through despite the niggles.

Had a great run tonight…not a sinner on the old airfield with me…the fact that it was pitch black is a factor in that…but the peace and quiet is great.

Day 331 – Putting on weight!

Wow…I got a bit of a wake up call today when I stood on the scales…I’ve put on weight over the last few weeks….bloody mince pies….why do you taste so good?

Had a great run this evening around the rugby field.  26 mins….nothing too strenuous.

Day 329 – Sundays…

I love Sundays…nowt to do really…I took Jay to rugby training for 10am and watched until it ended at noon.  While he was enjoying a bath I ran around the old airfield…what a day…crazy to think that it’s December tomorrow because I was sweltering doing my run today.

When I got home…quick shower…then a pint and lunch down at the local.

After that I panned out and watched some footy.

Not a bad day all in all :)
