dame [TDC753]

Got around to seeing the Kelly Holmes prog on TV.  Have to say it was very disappointing. Hardly even mentioned marathon running until 21 minutes in, out of 29 minutes, and then extremely cursory. I hope she raises shed loads of dosh for charity as aimed, but for someone that has been such a high level athlete and who claims to know the importance of “sport should be about creating role models”, the admission that she only decided to do and start training for the London Marathon in January of this year does her no favours and sets a very bad example for other less capable runners. Epidurals to ease inflamed hips?? Yes, that’s within the reach of most runners.

Today only time for a short jog home after work. Tomorrow I have to start bashing out the miles again though.
