A month gone and still a long way to go in the fitness stakes. Five miles this morning - watch played up by going into compass mode and making me think it wasn't working so stopped a number of times to try and get the damned thing into training mode somewhat unsuccessfully - as you can see though the first two miles were around 10min miles and then there stopping and starting making the overall average 10:45/mile which is really rubbish when you consider the ten mile hilly course I did yesterday. Ho hum such is life - details here.

Up at 4:45 on road around 5am (madness I tell you), don't know what temperature it was at 5 o'clock but I can tell you it was officially damn cold, anyway got biggest run of year so far done on a Monday morning - 10miles in 1hr 47m which was a slow 10:40/mile pace but there was many a hill between start and end so am quite happy with it overall!

Up at 4:15 to take Phil to work then back to bed. Had planned to take Lucy swimming at 10am but had a call from me mum for some assistance to move furniture about as my uncle is due to come out of hospital in the next couple of days all being well so that took precedence. However, have been promising to take Lucy swimming for the past two Sundays so come hell or high water we was going! Ended up doing about 50 minutes and 21 lengths in total the neat thing while we were aiming at 20 lengths I was able to give Lucy some maths testing in fractions, decimal and percentages which is what she's doing at school at the moment which was pretty good. Am going to try and go swimming with Lucy at least twice a month if not more, need to improve at swimming as Lucy is currently a better swimmer than me and that's not on!!
