Running into the home straight of 2016

Well we’re into the final two weeks of the year and – maybe more importantly! – the final four weeks before my next race, The Spine Challenger – gulp! As its been a while since my last update, I figured it was worth a few putting a words down about how things have been going with my training and also…

Storm Clouds Gathering Over My Race Plans

Events, dear boy, events! I’m not big on political history but that quote, widely attributed to Harold Macmillan but disputed by many, sums up the last ten days for me perfectly. Normally at this point in proceedings I’d be writing my usual pre-race thoughts post ahead of this weekends Ultimate Trails 110km in the Lake District. Events however have changed…

Bring on the mountains!

This means a lot of time on the road, which while not great for the hip flexors, does open some great opportunities to go exploring and sneak some runs in. Why spend the evening stuck in traffic or…

Long time no run, time for a Plan B and C!

Well for those that follow my blog you will have noticed that since The Hardmoors 55 I have been conspicuous by my absence. This was totally unplanned I assure you. Following the race I took my usual easy week to recover. A short 5km while in Edinburgh showed that the legs needed more time but by the following Monday I…
