Brain is being busy. It's not lagging like a slow computer. When it's busy it creates more room so everything is lot more intense and complicated. Shush... Music, candlelight, feet up. Taken tablets.

Snook in a run inbetween storm Freya - Snow - and tomorrow's storm Gareth. I felt lacking in energy but glad I got out there. Sent out messages to old friends and got some nice replies. Took tablets.

Something happening on the estate earlier. Loads of police cars and ambulances flying past. The cat has now worked out how to open the freezer door. This is turning into an ongoing battle...

Yeah 5k. I'm consistently running 25 minute pace in slightly longer runs in training. The race is a hillier course so I think aiming for 25 is sensible. If I manage it next steps are 50 minute 10k and then 22/23 minute 5k.
