So this afternoon I ventured over to the South Side to go for a run with my colleague Jeff. Like me, he is a consultant at the Beatson and is also running the Edinburgh marathon in May for charity. As we ran through Pollock park, we chatted about his training and also some of the work he has done with patients to improve their general wellbeing after having treatment for cancer.
It’s Mothers’ Day and we started it with a brisk sprint at the Junior Parkrun in Victoria Park first thing. It’s a 2km run (I didn’t do all of it – had been instructed to record Holly’s sprint across the finish) and the kids do it most weeks. I ran with Holly this morning so she could join me in my blog. We ran also with her cousin Hayley and both girls got new PBs which was great. Jamie just missed a PB but did get his half marathon wrist band for completing 11 runs.
