Did you miss me? Did you? Did you? At the risk of alienating my loyal crowd of readers (last count, 2) I took a break from blogging, partly due to being very busy and realising that I could run or blog but not both! And partly because whining about running was starting to bore me let alone my faithful reader(s).
Anyhoo, here I am again. Last Sunday was the Huntly half marathon and my plan to run it quicker than last year didn't quite eventuate when I strained a groin muscle at 15km, on the upside I did still finish (albeit painfully) and only 10 minutes slower than last year, and the video footage of my crossing the finish line (a lop-sided lope a la quasimodo) is hilarious, although not quite as funny as one of the on-course photos in which I appear to be doing the robot, oh go on then as you asked so nicely here is aforementioned picture along with one where I do at least appear to be running! Post-huntly I've managed a couple of 20 minute jogs before twinged muscles begin to re-twinge so I'm just hoping it all feels ok for hockey on Sunday. In other news I have moved from seriously considering doing the round Taupo cycle (160km) to checking out the date of this year's event and downloading a training schedule...eeek! Watch this space, can't be harder than running... can it?!
