Pre-race thoughts on Hardmoors 55 Ultra Marathon

So this weekend I will be taking a step into the unknown by attempting a “hilly” ultra across the North Yorkshire Moors, namely The Hardmoors 55. This was a pretty late addition to my 2015 race schedule but one I am keen to do, having heard lots of great reports about the Hardmoors series of events put on by Jon…

Ultra’s booked and other mad plans!

We’re only two months into the year but my 2015 season is already shaping up nicely.   Lots has been going on in the last few weeks, so I thought I would quickly bring you up to date on my plans for racing, training and this website in the coming months. Racing My next race was scheduled to be the…

Race Report: Peddars Way Ultra Marathon, January 2015

As I sit and write this its two days since I ripped my page(s) from the book hanging from the sign post on the beach marking the end of The Peddars Way and turned for the last kilometre to the finish but still the race is burned vividly into my memory – what a race! For those that have been following my…

My Race Objectives for Peddars Way Ultra 2015

Well this time next week, all being well, I’ll have finished my second official ultra marathon, The Peddars Way Ultra. This is an important race for me, as it was a late entry onto my 2014(+) schedule to replace the cancelled race I’d hoped to celebrate my 40th year with. I’ve had a good build up and am happy with…

Race Report – Ely New Years Eve 10km 2014

The 31st December 2014 saw my final race of the year, and I believe the final official race in the UK, The Ely Runners New Years Eve (NYE) 10km. I’ve ran this race twice before, the only other times I’ve run a 10km race. Both times I’ve been extremely disappointed with my time and I was therefore determined to get…

A Quick Look Back Then On We Go – My Review of 2014

With 2015 now underway it would be remiss of me to not have a quick look back at how 2014 went from an endurance training and racing perspective and also to look forward to 2015. Looking back at 2014 So how would I summarise 2014 from a training perspective? Well there was lots of running, some cycling but very little…

A difficult decision finally made!

A few weeks back I alluded to a difficult decision that I needed to make in relation to the Coast to Coast Sportive next June (2015).  Well I have finally made it and have subsequently withdrawn from this sportive! This was by no means an easy decision, as its a sportive I have wanted to do for years and the…

The Road Ahead is Ultra Long and also a Little Confusing!

So what does the remainder of the year hold and more importantly what are my plans for 2015? Well the year has not ended well if I am honest, with one race being rescheduled and my A race being cancelled altogether.  To cap it all I then suffered issues with both my ITB and TFL in my right leg limiting…

Next Ultramarathon in the diary – Peddars Way Ultra 2015

Well I talked about it for a while but I have finally pulled the trigger and entered the Peddars Way Ultra, at the end of January 2015!   With the loss of the Intrepid Duathlon from my race calendar, my training had lost all its focus and it feels good to get something booked in, all be it a while away…
