It ain't what you do...

It ain't what you do it's the way that you do it
It ain't what you do it's the time that you do it
It ain't what you do it's the place that you do it
And that's what gets results

You can try hard don't mean a thing
Take it easy and then your jive will swing


Turns out there is integrity to the acclaimed 'rehab run', to the point I have jolly well planned in three more (after tomorrow's race, of course).

Who'd have thought it: Rome wasn't built in a day. I'm one who finds it hard not to get carried off in the moment. If I'm running well, I want to run quickly/more; If I'm enjoying a wee roastie, another will swiftly follow, with a dab of horseradish to chase.

Here's the revelation: you can feel good by focusing on a stroll in the park. Perhaps there's something to be said for dressing up in all the gear and it's healing properties, too. Wednesday saw me run out, run home and gently stetched without issue or squeak. Not the irratic training I'm used to, but humbly exciting all the same. It made me come to realise that it's actually quite hard to look after your self. Advice is easy to come by and even easier to dish out. I wonder how many of us can hand-on-heart claim to honour the 'quality over quantity' approach, despite it's guilded and emobossed perseverance. I guess it's just a case of ackowledging those sessions when they are seen through. Perhaps one day the message might stick.

I'm running again but this time with a slow-burning log fire in my belly; take it easy, and then your jive will swing.


Please give Les Nubians your attention (after Banarama, of course).
