Out with Martyn nice to run with someone, got wet but legs felt OK even after Orienteering, Exercise Tolerance Test and a Hash in the last couple of days. Having a rest day tomrrow and looking forward to it.
Good Hash in an area I haven't really explored before near Cornwood. Out for about an Hour.

A really beautiful day and although conditions underfoot were heavy, the course was physically challenging. You know when you have enjoyed an event because all you have thought about all the way around is getting the next point. Of course after winning the Blue league last year it was a case of up you go to Brown, now I've never enjoyed Brown apart from the odd open moorland event, but I am hoping the marathon training will see an end to that. It was certainly the case yesterday.
7.0 km 250m
Well spent the day out on Dartmoor with a group, made a snowman and tried to keep warm. This evening I ran home in the rain, which was miserable. But felt OK apart from the odd pain in my right calf, but think I am just a little sensitive at the moment.
1hr 3 min
Well after over a month out with Calf strain, Christmas bug, ankle etc etc, I finally managed to get a run in today. So the Marathon seems a little more likely now. Out for 86min and managed 12.1km (7.5miles) so not a bad start, although a little long than I had plan after my map memory let me down....... Body seems to have held up pretty well but we will have to see how I feel in the morning! Remember you can sponsor me at http://www.justgiving.com/marklockett
