Keep on Running... Training Run 11

Distance: 4.1 miles. 
Time: 35 minutes - ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba!
Area covered: Shepherd's Bush - around Brook Green - back through Shepherd's Bush - St Petersburg Place - back to Holland Park roundabout.
Weather: Chilly but not too cold. 
Playlist: Kings of Leon, ABBA, Wayne Wonder (I have no shame), Chromeo, Aeroplane, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Jimi Hendrix, Shy Child.
Comments: After a rah-ubbish run on Friday night (it was a disaster from start to finish, including witnessing a cyclist get knocked off his bike in Holland Park) I dug out an old half marathon training program to try to resurrect some direction and focus. This program is dedicated to 3 short and fast(ish) runs and 1 long run each week. Although I'm not up to the long distances I should be doing I wanted to see if I could do the short fast ones so today my mission was 4 miles in 35 minutes. I am very, very chuffed that I achieved this. I am even more chuffed to have achieved this in my new running leggings which gave me a crotch lower than MC Hammer's. You can't touch this.
