Running up that Hill - Kate Bush

Yikes she was awesome!
Lyric:- Oh there is thunder in our hearts - Bush

Song Choice:- Another great song but I've cheated as it's from the 80's but it's my tune of the day in honour of my GoCompare Bigmoosers whom are well on their way to Cardiff Half-Marathon success especially as they Shook their trees so violently yesterday to maintain their focus on Fitness and Fatless Training.

Now, I've always loved this track and Kate's words speak volumes as she's right in that there is thunder in our hearts, it's just that sometimes it gets muffled or we get used to its rumblings and fail to hear the electricity deep inside us that sparks our everyday lives.

I'm hearing some real Thunderclaps today as I start to plan my months ahead, knowing that I have to up the ante in August to get me in the right place for my New Year Challenge. A lot of hard work in December won't be enough and a gentle approach in for the next four months should see me in great shape for 2016 - well that's the plan anyway.

With that in kind I've just started to drop a few 10kms into a very busy marathon schedule and I'm already feeling a whole lot better. It's amazing how restless one can get taking it easy. I think it's why classics like this song really push me on and enthuse me and get my thunder clapping!
The Real Mount Coleman

We'll see eh? How's your thunder? Are you muffling the sound?

Do you need to Run up Mount Coleman - don't ask! But maybe you do...I know I need to.
