I came here to run and that’s what I am doing morning and night, I have shed the Christmas turkey. I feel fit and lean and have made a break though with my running, its strange I have been running for 14 years but feel like I only began since I arrived in Ethiopia. Today Yared and I left the house before sunrise the full moon was dominating the sky and the ground was hardly visible. I had my head torch but refrained from using it as so I had no advantage over Yared. We warmed up then ran for 1 minute fast with a 30 second recovery, we did this 15 times. I kept up with him, last year he ran 2hrs 29mins. He says I can run under this if I carry on the way I am going.
