    My local parkrun starts on a narrow path and we have to keep to the left as the park is quite busy and there's also a bench on the right after about 100 metres (impossible to see through the throng of people) - there's probably space for 2, possibly 3 abreast. There are 400 runners. It's a total free for all and loads of genuinely slow (as in, I pass them cos they're so slow) people always stand near the front and the first few minutes are spent trying to dodge round people. It's really putting me off that particular parkrun, actually, which is a shame as it's really close to home :(
    Also I will never forgive the organisers for packing up the finishing chute while my mum was still running :(
    GRIPE OVER.

    I don't know what plan I'm doing yet but most likely won't do more than 20 miles. I'd kind of like to do further to give me fewer things to worry about on the day but my legs won't like me for it.

    Had a nice (slow) run today where I was jumped on by one dog (bad) and had another dog thrust at me by a woman chasing her other dog (good). Too many dogs has addled my brain as I just entered a marathon in May. 13 weeks. What am I doing. FFS.

    Accidentally entered an ultra? Nope, never done this.

    Write that blog, I'd read that. Much more inspiring than mine!
    I didn't make it to Wimbledon at the weekend but going to go this weekend, bring on those wombles! Thanks for the link too :)

    I know deep down everyone loves documenting every run with a selfie, so I did a whole month of it! lambonabike.wordpress.com/2016/0­2/01/january-runstreak/
    I decided to do a run streak partly to see if I could and partly to set myself some better habits. I've enjoyed not having to decide whether to go for a run or not, but should probably have run more (quite a few "one mile" days...). I don't know whether I've really got any better but then my problems with running appear to be predominantly mental, not physical. I'd quite like to continue with it but am worried that it's going to become a stick to beat myself with - on the other hand, running every day has been good for my anxiety, which I'm struggling with at the moment. (So for today, I'm taking the sensible option of getting anxious about whether to continue or not... FML)
