http://milamstreet.church/2017/11/1453/ How our minds work is a strange yet intriguing thing. For months the question was asked “Can we have a puppy?” followed by a quick response of “NO”. Why no? well! if your children get themselves a puppy that is there dog and their responsibility. Sorry but this is not the case. What it translates to is I want a puppy dad and I want all the nice things that go with it. The cuddles of a ball of fluff that smells of toast ,the endless Instagram and snapchats of child holding dog with smiles on face. What isn’t celebrated is the two weeks of no sleep getting up to a yapping hound, sleeping on the kitchen floor cleaning up wee and the poo (The wife does more than her fair share of this part).

So yes I have had the fun of the pictures and cuddles but am currently looking at the little ball of joy peeing in front of me. I don’t even think she has drunk that much fluid there’s loads of it! Broken sleep and early mornings isn’t contusive to happy people but we are turning a corner. So after the Grinch like attitude towards not having a dog why now do I have another dog?.

Weight

You will notice the absence of a weigh in this time. I’m not going to lie, I have eaten some cap this week when I say some I  mean loads of the stuff. Why? well in my world birthday weeks are an excuse to what you want. I have enjoyed a bottle of Red wine and some bottles of Trooper, for the uneducated this is Ironmaiden Beer. By god it was nice. But the reality of the future is coming to me. I need to get fitter and faster.

Training

A couple of runs (Not a by product of the food, actual running) It was a strange experience the run before last. I had gone out with my mate Roy your going to hear of him a lot in the months to come. I hope its all good but cant guarantee that. We were coming to our point where we split off to go home and said our usual good bye’s, as I ran home I didn’t feel like stopping. My legs felt good os I decided to carry on. My garmin had stopped beeping at me. This usually means one of to things its run out of battery or I’m going faster than my current 10 minute mile pace. I looked at the watch 8:40 pace, ok lets see if we can keep it up. Well I then went on to complete my fastest mile 9:22 to be exact. But there is always a price to pay. Stiff uncomfortable back reason lack of stretching, bugger! So what has this weeks training taught me? Stretch lots idiot!!! and you can run faster the only thing stopping you is you.

Gear

Sweating, my head leaks when I run. it’s not nice! I don’t understand why your body has a dislike for your eyes and wants to produce chemicals to burn them out, ok its only salt but feels much worse. My saving grace is my Arena snood. I got this free at ironman and at the time I boohooed it. Its great! something as simple as this has helped me to enjoy my runs.

Do we actually need the fancy watches and tech? I like being able to look at what I’m doing when I’m doing it. I am a self proclaimed Geek. But sometimes I think I need to go train without it. I think there is a risk of becoming dependent on having that security on your wrist. Its simple if your about to black out your going to fast, If your skipping and a bit cold your going to slow.

Please comment on my posts, I’m still learning about this blogging stuff.

Why Do I Train?

Because every now and then I want to eat crap and enjoy it.
