A landmark run. Who would have thought that when I started running from scratch on 21 March 2009 that I’d complete 500 training runs, a few 10ks and half marathons, full marathons in Paris, Rome, Manchester and Berlin, and a 12 hour overnight endurance event running and walking 44 miles. Incredible, and far beyond my wildest expectations as I did my first training run: https://s20steve.wordpress.com/2009/03/21/training-run-1/ I’ve got to thank my twin brother Jeff for getting me started, it’s changed my outlook and my life.

Milder than of late, 9C, breezy with a bit of light drizzle at the start and finish. Went for my usual 7 mile run, starting off in the dark. None of the usual niggles but I knocked my left ankle bone on a car door on Sunday, felt it a bit at the time, then it started to hurt a bit more yesterday. It was a niggle for the first 2k, then wore off completely. Otherwise an uneventful, straightforward run to mark this training milestone.
Avg HR: 145bpm
