You Have Been Warned...

In an effort to make reading this blog bearable… or at the very least intelligible, I’ve signed up to WordPress’s Blogging U: Blogging 101.  This is simply fair warning that there may be an increase in random posts and nonsense, changes to the lay out, content, maybe even a name change over the next few weeks while I try out new techniques, hints and tips etc, to improve the reader’s (that’s you) overall experience.   746 more words

Why do I run?

How many blog posts try to answer this question?

I’m not sure I know the answer…to either of the above. Partly because the answer changes day to day, month to month, year to year. 1,039 more words

Swimming

I’ve been struggling with my swimming this season. Last year I was a beginner, and almost every week my times were tumbling, I could swim further, push myself faster. 1,171 more words
