I wasn't planning on doing much this week after the long run I had last Saturday, I was pleased that I could walk straight after the way I felt on Sunday morning, everything felt fine except for my right achilles which wouldn't stretch, even far enough for me to put my heal on the ground. That has got better all week and felt fine by tuesday for a steady run.
After that I fell remarkably good.
Thursday was great fun showing DFR my local stomping ground, we all got good and muddy and the locals didn't let our tyres down when we were out running, so a huge success! Thanks to everyone who turned out.
Saturday saw the culmination of my 30th Birthday celebrations, driving to london to have lunch at “Dinner”. Magnificent. This blog isn't about food, it's about running, so I won't say much but it was a cracking good feast. Went to see Totem by Cirque Du Soleil later, again magnificent, one of the best Cirque shows I have seen and a wonderful experience.

|Spit roasted pineapple - delicious!|
Sunday, 4.5 miles around finsbury, not much to say about that.
My left achilles is giving me some grief, feels bruised, not a problem when on long runs, but feels sore in work shoes and on short runs. Invested in some Inov8 Baregrips so will try them out on thursday and report back. I am on the look out for some super comfortable work shoes, something black and cheapish, might get some vibram fivefingers, but not sure if they will put pressure on the sore left achilles? Any thoughts???
Thanks for reading, back on it next week if work allows it!
