So with less than a week before the Milton Keynes Half Marathon, my left ankle was dodgy with the tendons(?) pulling tight at the front, so with discretion being the better part of valour I pulled up short.
And I’ve lost a massive 0.1kg since Saturday!
Weather was very changeable so I dressed for cold and wet and it was cold and dry, so I overheated a little. Not too bad time though for me.
So last night, whilst idly checking to see when we could enter the ballot for places for the 2017 London Marathon, I pondered about when the ballot would open for Berlin 2017, before realising that 2016’s hasn’t taken place yet! We were unlucky in that we didn’t get into this year’s Berlin Marathon, having successfully(ish) completed it in 2015 but I saw that they also run a half marathon in the first week of April.
Which made me think that Paris have theirs in April too, so I hopped over to the Paris Marathon website and saw that registrations are open. A few clicks and oops! It seems I’ve successfully entered, so on Sunday 9th April 2017, we’ll be in Paris wondering what the hell we’ve done!

Thought I’d check my local section of the London Marathon route for them tomorrow! Hard work after nearly two weeks’ break from running due to work travel. Cold, windy, warm and still, all in one run too.
I’m down about 1lb to 87.6kg
Decided to finish as I started but added an additional loop. Quite tired 🙂
The wind had dropped but the temperature was up! Getting tired too…
Later start this morning. Hotter and windier today especially on the long back straight.
Third day in a row and my ankle is painful from turning it on the uneven surfaces repeatedly. I still need to get the mileage in though.
I decided to celebrate being an even older pharte today by going for another run/stagger of 5.3k around the villa.
Following my 5k route but turned off too early so the distance was less. Turned my left ankle 6 times on the rough/broken paths which didn’t help. Very warm and windy too.
