Doctor Who - TARDIS Tattoo


What did you get for Xmas. I got lots and lots of books, basically I added loads to my abebooks basket and OH got them for me.

The other treat was........ I got myself a tattoo. Don’t ask about the haircut, I had it seriously short for Xmas party.

So I had it done at Mannequins Loughborough it was done by Adam.This is their Facebook page.

So how did it feel having it done, well I cannot lie the first two hours were a breeze, after that it started getting a little ouchy, and I squirmed around a bit in the seat, but hey, it was worth it. I love it. ❤️

Whaddya think?

Part way though.

Getting there....

Just after.

A couple of days later

Plodding along

well.. How is my running going...

The answer is badly. I plodded around London Marathon, and Milton Keynes 8 days later.

I've torn the cartilage in my left knee and just plod along with it so everything is very, very slow but I keep on plodding. I need to get a lot more long runs in. But, hey that's life.

Running so far in 2016

So how has 2016 gone so far.

Well bearing in mind the adage that you should never compare yourself to other runners, as the only person I'm running for or against is myself, I am pretty happy so far.

January 127 Miles
February 138.5 Miles

That's not a bad start to the year.  It's all very flat and very, very slow mileage running to a low heart rate as per MAF base training but it's going ok.

I might not be fast but at least at least speed i can keep running through little niggles and annoyances.

Still looking forward to April / May with:-

London Marathon
Milton Keynes Marathon
Hardcastle 24

All three events are within a two week window!! EEEEEEK.

I'm doing this to raise money for Guide Dogs, to hopefully help out a lot of people.
