    Today is a busy one at work. Up early and took the boys to the field whilst I ran around it clocking up two miles. I then dropped them home and did a solo 8. So that’s my 10. I might head back out later but will see how I feel. Really hating the 5am start but loving the extra run time once I’m up.

    @Ringypie and @Boxer123 you are amazing! Great start to the challenge.
    6 miles for me last night, a little bit cooler but the humidity has dropped a lot, probably due to the wind.

    .

    The cooler weather is definitely helping if it was as hot as a few weeks ago I’d have been struggling.

    He's doing very well, thanks @Boxer123 :) I've been reading a few theories about how an overnight vet stay somehow "resets" behaviour, he's been eating well for the first time in a while, so maybe it did.

    I'd better not have jinxed myself now!!

    Here he is yesterday with Human Daddy in the office :)

    Thanks for asking :)

    10.6 miles today felt a bit better than yesterday’s struggle. I’m 40% of the way there and in awe of those who have already finished!
    Currently a toss up between eating everything in the house or falling asleep!

    That would have been a good idea but I fell asleep on the sofa after I’d had my cuppa. Dragging myself to bed. Just climbed a mountain I mean the stairs!

    58640EA7-9845-45CC-AA8E-8255D53E04F3.jpeg Day 3

    Well today 12 miles on Strava 11 on garmin. Not a great run. It’s raining which is fine as it’s not cold however rain adds to lokis douchy powers. The fields we run through to get to the river were so muddy we pretty much crawled through. Finally got to the river and I spot a couple walking their dog. Now Loki there is no chance of getting him past and keep running (douchy) so we have to turn around and go back through the mud. Loki is spinning around in the mud like a Tasmanian devil.

    Finally drop him off and pick up Sox. Sox proved to be a much better running partner. He can go off lead and bimble. Unfortunately he doesn’t like going far. By this point even my knickers are wet through.

    Dropped him off then out on my own wet and tired and very hungry! Curled up on the sofa now with tea.

    I’m definitely tired a mix of running and getting up at 5am everyday. Sox refuses to even go out for a wee today just went back to bed.

    Omg well done! I’m waiting for my lunch to go down before I head out. It was very wet this morning and I let myself get talked into doing a flatwork session with Ringo. I hadn’t planned on doing anything more than a gentle hack but he enjoyed it. He does love his work!

    14 miles today. Felt better than I expected but yet again my route was shorter than I thought so I had to do lots of annoying extra bits then up and down the road 4 times to make the last 3 miles. I hate that it’s so soul destroying!!
    I’m tired now - still had to put Ringo to bed as well. Never mind putting him to bed - I need my own bed!

    Well done looks like a hilly route. We are all curled on the sofa with tea. I’m hoping to be done by Saturday to have Sunday off but we will see how we go.

    The problem is there isn’t really anywhere flat around here.... I’m clean and wrapped up in my pyjamas while hubby cooks dinner. I hope I don’t fall asleep at the dinner table!
