I recently watched the film Yes Man. So when Niall asked if I'd like to come out running on Friday lunchtime I had no real option but to say YES. Hey it could have been the start of an amazing adventure... but it wasn't.
Instead four of us set off from JPM on a mid tempo down to Westminster Bridge, round the Three Bridges route and back. The initial pace was dare I say it perhaps a touch slow. However, I needn't have worried as mile by mile, bit by bit, the speed gradually increased. I hung on as far as the Wobbly Bridge on the way back by which time we'd hit a full-on tempo 6:38 mins/mile and my vision had started to blur. Jogging back from there I took the scenic route to avoid a marching band, Niall didn't and received a stern whistling at from one of City of London's finest keepers of law and order.
All in all a pleasantly tough run on what turned out to be an unexpectedly fine and sunny day.
