Hat trick

The plan for tonight - route from home, which involves a few briefs stints in total darkness. Following the frustration of trying to run with Marco's head torch a few weeks ago, I went on the search of a alternative. Santa (well, my Sister) is bringing me a super lightweight one, but I stumbled across this cap light on my search. Anyone who knows me, knows that I barely ever run without my cap. I'm practically naked without it. To the capped-fraternity this nifty little invention is pure genius. It's marketed at fisherman, but their missing a trick with runners. It weighs next to nothing, but lights up the path better than the headtorch. I was a bit dubious when it arrived. I wouldn't have been surprised if it was like a couple of matches on your head. But for about £5 from ebay, it's a sound purchase.

OK, praises over...let's talk about running. I'm very excited to write that I did my seven-mile tempo in 57.05 - that's 1.5 minutes faster than a few weeks ago. Average pace 8.07 - which is faster than my half-marathon pace. Last mile from the sweet shop in 6.31
