White lies to get you out into a southerly
“The daffodils are out.”
“Maybe it isn’t pitch black this morning.”
“It’s a bit warmer. Yes?”
“My knee/back/neck/ankles weren’t quite as sore as usual. Actually, I’m good!”
“That was a pretty good time yesterday – fastest in months.”
Feel free to use any of those lines if it gets you going.
This is the crucial training period for events in August and September.

Those are definitely daffodils by the fence.

Benefits of Running Include Lower Rates of Cancer and Early Mortality
According to new research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, running as little as 50 minutes per week can help reduce your risk of early death from cancer and cardiovascular-related events.
Regardless of weekly frequency, duration, and pace, running is a great form of exercise to help you live longer.
Running has often been associated with improved heart and metabolic function, but some previous studies have shown inconsistent findings in terms of whether or not logging miles regularly can help ward off cancer or death related to cardiovascular events.
That led researchers to do a meta-analysis of 14 studies, with a participant pool of 232,149 people, to see whether running actually did make a difference for cancer prevention and heart health click on the link below
