Must get better at blogging

Dear oh dear, another month has gone by and no more blog posts.  Fortunately this time it’s not because I haven’t been running – just that during that time I have been (a) very busy at work, (b) away skiing, and (c) too lazy to blog.  But now that February is here and there are only 9 1/2 weeks to go until the big day, its time to start thinking about fundraising.  And if I’m going to ask people for money, it seems only fair to update them on what I’m actually doing to earn it.  So my Chinese New Year resolution is to get back into the blogging habit.  2011 is the Chinese Year of the Rabbit – I’m hoping in my case that rabbit will be more like a hare.  (Or, more probably, a tortoise.)

By way of update, the training schedule since January has been somewhat modified to take account of the time I missed over Christmas, and the demands of a particularly nasty Chinese transaction at work, but has largely followed the three-times-a-week easy run/intervals/long run pattern.  I’ve had to be increasingly inventive to get my mid-week runs in: running to work is usually a good bet but treadmills in ski resorts and running to/from the dentist have also featured over the last week or so.  (Note to self for future reference: it’s not actually possible to “run” down Charlotte Street on a Tuesday lunchtime.)

The fundraising drive also starts here so I need to start rounding up email addresses and making a general nuisance of myself.  I’m planning to use my upcoming 30th birthday as a good way of badgering my extensive collection of relatives into making a good start, but if anyone else wants to set the ball rolling you can do so by clicking on the Virgin Money button on the right (with a huge great “thanks” from me and Oxfam).
