Happy, tappy feet

The wintry weather we’ve been experiencing in London this week has made training runs quite trying at times. I started the week on Monday with a 4 mile recovery run. Tuesday’s yoga session sorted out a big of leg stiffness and cleared my head. Wednesday afternoon’s run was 8 miles, marathon pace in hail, snow and an icy wind. Friday was another gentle run, 4 miles (snow).

Last night (Saturday) I attended the birthday party of one of the most inspiring members of the Serpentine Running Club – Edwina Brocklesby. It was held at an incredible venue – the Churchill War Rooms. The band (Jacque Rabbit) were brilliant and we all had a good dance! Eddie is a real inspiration to us all and she has recently launched a charity that will inspire many others – Silverfit.

Fuelled with porridge and strong coffee, Sunday morning was time for the Hyde Park 20 – the perfect preparation for the London Marathon. It was another trudge in sleety conditions (warmer gloves for this one!) – 5 laps of familiar territory. Overall it was a satisfying run in foul conditions, although the pacemakers were a little off-pace! A relaxing afternoon awaits and, later, a night out with friends at Ronnie Scotts for the monthly Tap Jam.

Really looking forward to next week’s relaxation and wonderous walks in Snowdonia.

Have a great week and keep safe.
