It’s 4:45. Early. Cold. It’s marathon day. I get up, the shirt is laid out downstairs, number pinned low, just as I like it. Kettle on, coffee will get me going. Focus. Time to get ready. The year starts here. This year starts here! Click. What’s that? That’ll be the kettle. Brain not in gear. […]

This morning Dave and I headed out to Hankley Common so he could show me where I’m going to be marshalling next Sunday for our Club’s Halloween run. Photos and information can be found HERE and according to RunnersWorld reviews, it was a fun challenge. See the reviews and enter online HERE! Having run eight […]

For my final run in Norfolk I’d been hoping to keep up the twelve miles but not today, I wasn’t feeling it. However, the first hundred training miles are done, not that there’s any specific target on that score, but it’s a hundred all the same. Back to the daily grind in just a few […]

Today I ran almost the same route as Sunday. It makes for a good run aside from the mad national speed limit section in the middle! Another marathon has made it to the list as well. I’m returning to run Barcelona for a second time, but a marathon this time. In January of this year […]

As it says, squeezed into the day in place of no run at all, just the good old three miles today. Off to Norfolk tomorrow. It’s flat, right? Andy. Today’s shoes: Silver and Yellow Kayano 17s Mileage today: 3.00 Training mileage so far: 71.09 Marathon mileage so far: 26.25

This evening was my first run since Chester on Sunday. I was pleased to find that everyone was out for a short one as a good number of the club are off to Istanbul at the weekend to take part in the marathon there. Best of luck guys, PBs all round eh?!? The plan was […]

…so that sort of gives the game away, but I wasn’t feeling great and haven’t been for about three weeks now so a sub 3h10 is very good. It qualifies me for London 2013 (the deadline is well and truly gone for the 2012) and so it’s a good start to the year. As for […]
