Run badger run

You may remember that last November I started running, partly because colleagues were doing it (or talking about it) and partly just because it seemed like a good idea for fitness and whatnot.

There's quite a group of us at work now who go running at lunchtimes, it's settled into a pretty good routine and we've been upping the mileage every week, so over the last few months I've ended up doing quite a bit of running -- certainly loads more than I'd've ever done on my own.

Anyway, this morning I did roughly the same route that I couldn't quite manage when I started back in November, with an extra bit tacked on the end, in 29 minutes (no, I'm still not a fast runner, but I do only have tiny little badger legs). Definitely not as much fun running on my own (and slightly odd that I seem to run slower when I don't spend the whole time talking to people!) but good to know I can do it.

I think I need a 'running' icon.
