No. Not that kind of record. Not the “I have run at record pace,” or – unlike Eleanor of Kirkstall Harriers – “I hold the Guinness World Record for running in a wedding dress”. (Her Twitter name was @briderunning.)
No. The other kind of record, with the stress on a different syllable. The kind whereby this blog is where I record what I have done for me as well as for anyone reading. So look away. Nothing of interest here except to me and Jenny, and she doesn’t need to read this because she was there.
There was no running today. Today was a strength and cardio session with boxing. I love boxing. I’ve always liked it, but I never wanted to take up boxing because I don’t want to hit anybody. But I really began to like boxing with pads when my relationship ended horribly and I needed something to punch. For months, I visualised my ex’s face on the pads. I don’t do that any more: I consider that progress. Relationship breakdowns are horrible, but I did do some good fast runs when I had anger to burn off. Heartbreak, but speed.
