My primary concern today was putting in a mile to see if my calf is ruined and I’ve ended Janathon with an injury or whether it’s merely slightly ruined and I’ll be able to use my running mileage as a springboard to a good, fit summer.
What better way than a 6 part outing to draw a letter for “aintfastaintpretty”, the blog of GPS drawing during such outings as mine. The idea was a few people contributing to the art with letters spelling out what else but “Janathon”. I chose an “A”. Here it is:
It was brought to you by a sheep field, a 100ft tape (it’s 200ft along each leg, the form scaled up from sans serif font so it looked reasonable), a bit of triangulation, 12 socks and a Garmin 405 which I hovered over each of the turn points to make sure they were crisp. It’s 0.14 miles around the perimeter and I’m quite pleased with it.
My calf is again ensconced in strapping and a bit sore but I don’t think it’s completely ruined. Not yet, anyway.
Might try another short outing later…150 miles is a long way away in two outings if it is knackered.
