and so it is...


...just like i thought it would be.
three days into my, lets call it, more moderate diet ie no booze / limited salty snacks, add in the resumption of hard sessions and the difference is amazining! mind you, for charlie it's carry on regardless..nothing's changed...he just does his thing day in day out.
i can already feel an emergence away from 'excess' to a feeling of greater vitality and positivity. i hit a physical high around july - october last year but since then stupidly let it slowly ebb away. it happens every year but now we move once again to all things that are good.
this morning in the early hours we trotted around a short 4+mile route through the tiny lanes in the sticks where we live. the other day the route felt tortuous. today, i felt a little lift with every step and charlie didn't get too far ahead.
tomorrow, it's a track session. 2 x 8 x 200's. a great session to 'open you up'.

Charlie has not only achieved fame, he has now become 'god-like' with his own real halo!

Hello Charlie, and thanks for the footprint! I like the photo, reminds I should get a headlamp so I don't fall into the canal I normally run along!

Cracking shot of Charlie, Dave. Does he chase crows? Saw loads of them when out on my run this morning. A flock of them were raiding the hay from the sheep feeder. The sheep just looked bemused!
