Running on

3 miles in 29 minutes, not far or fast but fairly respectable given a) not being used to running at night, b) new insoles which still feel a bit weird, and c) persistent stomach cramps which I was kinda hoping the running would cure, but eh, never mind. At the end I was still thinking "hmmm, actually, I could happily run a bit further" and decided against, which was probably the right decision. I'm doing the Town & Gown 10K on Sunday, and various lovely people have between them already pledged £210 in sponsorship money which doesn't depend on how fast I run, though gives me an incentive to keep going. Would be nice to do it in under an hour, but the only thing I have promised myself I will do is finish.

I never thought I'd prefer to go running than go to a gig with addedentry, but given how muggy it is outside at the moment I can think of quite a few places I'd rather be than in the Cellar Bar... In the bath, maybe, with a mug of peppermint tea and a good book. Yes. I grow old, I grow old.
