On Saturday afternoon I got to dress up in full academic dress…
For once I actually managed to smile (or was I just relieved that I had made it onto the stage without falling over?). I can confirm that I was the only student wearing (smart) trainers.
Now that the PhD is complete and I am no longer a research student, I am considering changing the name of this blog. Ideas have included ‘The Brummie Runner’ (this could possibly get confused with the Birmingham Runner shop) and ‘The Tall Runner’ (at 5ft 11.5″ I am pretty tall).
On Sunday I was meant to complete a 15-mile run around Four Oaks. My foot was sore after spending the day walking around London so I was sensible (or possibly lazy) and didn’t run.
I have told myself that it is fine to miss the occasional training session. Last weekend my PhD graduation ceremony took priority, this weekend running will be number one.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a new name for my blog?
Do you feel guilty when ‘life’ gets in the way of training?
