Day Tripper

Posted by speedygeoff on Thursday, August 21, 2008 with 1 comment

At the BBQ Stakes yesterday Helen and I ran well, in the wind and cold: Helen's time was 27.03, mine 25.05. Helen was "taking it easy" as she's running the half marathon this Sunday; but it was still her fastest time this year, considerably faster than her previous run where she won the handicap. Mine was 15 seconds slower than last week but 15 seconds faster than all the "consistent" times I had run in recent weeks. Unfortunately Helen tripped and fell on our cool down jog, but not much damage done, just the usual hands-and-knees scratches and scrapes, and she should be OK for the half marathon. "Just a flesh wound". But there's too much tripping happening again!

Run Away (obviously this must have a running theme to make this blog! But this also relates back to my rabbit joke of a few days ago.)

  1. Brave Sir Robin ran away.
    Bravely ran away, away.
    When danger reared its ugly head,
    He bravely turned his tail and fled
    Yes, Brave Sir Robin turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out
    Bravely taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat
