Warning: end of year review. Egotistical and self congratulatory stuff within. Why not take a wee look at your year and have a smile too 🙂 So the training I’m doing just now is just trying to build a base for my marathon training starting on 2nd January. May have an indoor race start of … Continue reading “History” or “How accurate ARE these bloody elephants?” 2016 in trainers.
