I ran for the first time today in my Stroke Association vest: eight miles around Seaford, in a cool wind, but nowhere near as cold as it has been.
I was pleased, as I had no knee pain, and I seem to have returned to the sort of weekly mileage I need for a half-marathon four weeks away. Other runs this week included a long one with the Striders on Wednesday, notable for my attempt to run through a chain-link fence - I didn’t see it in the dark and still have a bruise on my hand.
And on Saturday night, it was the Seaford Striders awards evening, at which I was delighted to win a Sussex Grand Prix prize, given to all club members who run eight or more of the Grand Prix races, and the Jo Jo Gunne award, for running three races on three consecutive days at the August Bank Holiday weekend.
28 days till the Brighton Half.
