Today's run was 12 miles and for most of it I seemed to be running into a bitingly cold wind. I didn't warm up at all and was heartily glad when it was over!
Of course, as Brighton is looming large, with London hot on its heels, we needed some new photos for the first round of press releases and so Mike assumed the role of photographer and on a brighter day this week we braved the elements to take these photos. Oh my it was cold and windy and my hair kept blowing across my face!

More about these events soon but believe me when I say that my challenge for 2013 is one of, if not the toughest things I've attempted!
For any Brighton marathon runners reading this, please make sure you allow enough time for your taper. At this stage in the game less is definitely more and you don't want to risk injury by ramping up your mileage trying to play catch-up for training sessions you might have missed. You want to be raring to go on race day.
For those of you running VLM, you need to start your taper next week.
I haven't been knitting over the past few weeks but there's been plenty of crochet. Last night I started these baby bootees - so sweet. The colours aren't showing up very well but are a pale lemon and pale violet and look very Spring-like.

You can see the ridges formed by the front post and back post trebles (UK term, DC for others). It's really simple and very effective. This needs the top of the foot filling in with rows of DC (UK) and some contrast trim on the ankle and around the foot which won't take long.
