I am sure we all find it easier to run in the sunshine, with Winter seemingly behind us, and the clocks changing in the next couple of weeks, I am feeling thankful that Spring is here, the Daffs and Crocus are peaking out and their is a feeling of newness around.
I just had the most fabulous weekend down in Sussex for a yoga retreat and ran from the centre to the seaside at Cooden. What a glorious spot that is. The emphasis was on eating balanced foods and on exercise for the body and mind. Mediation and self development. The retreat is part of a course which is called My12for12, you focus on six things you want to ditch and six things you want to amplify. I have met a fabulous group of people and really enjoyed being apart of the weekend. We were bless with incredible weather.
Realising what a gargantuan task this 26 miles is, and go through panics as to whether my knees will hold up and if I will get round. Then I have someone say the pain disappears but pride lasts forever and I am filled with hope and less dread.
Its true we can do anything we put our minds to....so the next three weeks I will be focusing on running, yoga and more of the same whilst visiting my Dad in Mexico, I plan to train on the beach where the sand should be less impactful. When I get back its April.....so not long to go....

So off I trotted yesterday morning, favourite music pumping in my ears, fortunately it was a beautiful day for it. My ran took me through Borough Market, along the Southbank and passed the Tate Modern, London Eye, and up to MI5, heading round the back through Vauxhall I only stumble across this.....
Really rather apt I thought!
We are on single figure count down simply aiming to run as much as possible.....
