Day 3 / 24.01.14 / 400km30days

20140124-055306 pm.jpg

I know I shouldn’t run in you but you’re still good for a few kilometres now and again and tonight in my efforts to run 400km in 30days I just hammered out a couple of miles through the centre of London – so thank you, my soon to be retiring, Newton Distance. Tonight was a short and swift affair simply because tomorrow the intention is for it to be a long slow affair. Nice to mix it up though even if I am now freezing my gonads off at Charing Cross station hoping for a train to turn up. Enjoy your running chaps.

    Nice. How many miles/km you got on those bad boys?

    • These particular little monsters have done more than 750km including a couple of marathons. I love my Newtons and it’s time for a new pair methinks!

        Surely they’re not ready for the bin yet. They’re still young. Haha.

      • They never go in the bin, just retirement … They’ll come out for the occasional 10km. We’ll have dinner together and reminisce about the old times – when we both were fast. They might have another 150km left in them but they don’t endure like my Hoka 🙂
