With less than 3 weeks left in the year many people will be sitting back and taking stock of the year. Did they complete the challenges they set themselves, can they hit their target in the next couple of weeks? They might have a list of short, medium or long term goals drawn up for […]
Just when I was getting used to my training programme it was time to start some speed work.
Last nights session involved a 15 minute jog to the track, 5 x 5 minute plus 1 minute active recovery followed by 15 minute jog home.
It was good to see so many people using the track considering the […]
If you haven’t already started making plans and setting goals for 2017 now is the time to start doing so.
I’ve been toying with some ideas for the last 6 months. I seem to have a pretty good plan in place in both business and sporting activities.
When it comes to goal setting it is important to […]
Last night was day 300 of my runstreak. Having mistimed dinner time for a 7.00 p.m. jog I made it out for 5 miles at 8.30 p.m.
My legs are still feeling fresh after all these miles. It might have something to do with the extra magnesium I have been taking.
I have signed up to marshal […]
I thought I could combine the busiest working week of the year with the most amount of miles I’ve run in one week and hit the 900 mile mark for the year.
It was nice to be so enthusiastic but in reality it was probably never going to happen.
Thankfully I have now run 915 miles and […]
I finally hit the 800 mile mark on Monday evening. It was also the 200th day that I have run this year.
I am slightly behind in my pursuit of 2,016 miles but with a small increase in my daily mileage it should still be possible to achieve.
Thierry joined me for 5km on a slightly packed […]
I read a post recently from someone who had a soft tissue injury. They were ruling themselves out of all running activity for the rest of the year.
Soft tissue injuries are annoying, but they are short time injuries if treated properly.
The last couple of weeks have been pretty frustrating for me. After running the half […]
On April 2nd I ran my first parkrun 5km. I ran with Kitty from ‘On The Road Again’. She hadn’t been running for a while. I was just happy to get out for a run and see what the parkrun course was like. 105 people running 5km at 9:30 on a Saturday morning is a […]
On Saturday I ran a 10km race in Castlerock just outside Coleraine.
This was my 144th race, 24th county I’ve run in and I hit the 400 mile mark for the year. I’ve never spent as much time looking at entering a race as I have with this 10km race, which I heard about on social media and I thought […]
