Week 4 - British Weather and yet more expense!

Running really isn’t a cheap sport! Another £13.98 spent this week (after last week’s £32 for the Great Newham Run entry), this time on a Parkrun barcode bracelet so I no longer have to carry a paper one in my one and only (butt) pocket! 350 more words


Week 2 - Preparation and getting on with it.

Running is something we can all do. It’s free. Just put on your running gear and trainers, walk out the front door, then off you go. 350 more words

I Proclaim, I will run 500 miles…………to Brighton

Or to the Brighton Marathon at least, but I couldn’t resist getting the song into your head! But this is my challenge – do at least 500 miles on foot in training and on race day, to get across that finish line at the Brighton Marathon on 15th April 2018. 707 more words


Am I getting slower.............and is this a good thing?

I have read time and time again, that to get better as a long distance endurance athlete you need to run/cycle/swim more slowly.

The idea is that I should be exercising at an intensity that I could hold a conversation with somebody.   466 more words
