Run, run, as fast as you can...

.... you can catch me, cos I run much slower than the Gingerbread man!

I am thrilled to have managed three runs this week, Monday, Thursday, Saturday - each time on my 4.6 mile (about 7.5 kilometre) circuit and each time without stopping /walking. Still running slowly, but I am moving forward!

I have ten weeks to go before the Greifenseelauf 10K on 22nd Sept and I want to enjoy the race, and finish not too far off 1 hour. Always good to have a goal :-) The last time I did the race was in 2006, in 1 hour 3 minutes. Plus, bestest mate Sal (she of the terrifying double comrades marathon in South Africa) is coming over to do it with me! The running project after that is the Silvesterlauf in Zurich in December, 8.6km and hoping my sister will come and run it with me. It's a lovely atmosphere, 3 laps through the christmasy old town, with lots of crowds.
