Nearly had to stop my challenge on Tuesday as I had planned to run with friends at the running club that night, I had a shock when I arrived home from school ( long story short I found my husband very poorly on the floor with a bad case of vertigo ) 1 hour after phoning the NHS direct help line and the doctors I had to run to pick up a prescription up for some strong medicine.
Even though I didn't want to run I still got my 3 miles run in that day,really need to get back into the car again after 10 years off driving!!. On Wednesday morning I managed just under 6 miles and another 5 today.
Today I'm sharing a healthy smoothies with beetroot. I've heard they say beetroot can improve running ...
