Andy’s 2016 VLM Blog
2016’s training started with what is now the traditional parkrun New Years Day double. An 8.30 parkrun 5k at Lydiard Park, Swindon was followed by a dash up the M4 to Newbury for the second run at 10.30. Both events treated us to a very fresh breeze and a lot of puddles.
Today’s 17 miles also had a mixture of wind, driving rain and a little bit of sunshine but that’s how it goes….it is January after all. Running club has resumed normal service and armed with a Christmas voucher I’ve been to Run Swindon and got the usual excellent service to get kitted out with a very nice pair of running shoes. Can’t wait to try them out….my current pair are a bit soggy and muddy!
