Brighton 2012

Château Plage on Brighton seafront

The first day of my new 18 week, 709km, medium intensity ASICS training plan began yesterday with a brisk walk along Brighton seafront.  Helen set a fierce pace which practically made it a jog and I reckon it was easily 5km.  So that’s 704km to go.

Getting back as it began to get dark, we then watched almost 7 hours of continuous TV,  which included Hamlet,  Great Expectations and The Royal Institution lecture “Meet you Brain”. Unfortunately you can drink quite a lot of wine in 7 hours so I was particularly unimpressed by the motivational email I received this morning from My ASICS telling me I had a 9km jog to do.

11:30am Just got back from Preston Park – beautiful weather and 9km didn’t seem that bad after all. Hardly anyone about in the park except for a few joggers and a group of super fit under 30s being put through their paces by British Military Fitness.

Rest day tomorrow 🙂
