Year of running 2016

This is my third year joining in to write about my year in running – you can see 2014 and 2015 here and here. Quite amazing really to think that I’ve only been running for three years, quite amazing to think my first marathon was only last year!! 1,213 more words


Welcome back the light

Winter is a time of darkness for all of us in the Northern Hemisphere. I know some people find this hard. You go to work in the dark you come home in the dark and in between is a backdrop of grey murk. 435 more words

Woldingham to Wimbledon

Last year was a great year of running for me. I maintained a daily mile streak, and at least one official marathon each calendar month (16 in total). 3,650 more words


The North Downs Way 

Last autumn I hiked quite a bit of the North Downs Way. My plan was to hike the whole path in day trips out of London – and that still is my plan! 1,637 more words


Some big goals 

A month or so ago I signed up to this:

My first 50 miler. Some background – I started running almost five years ago now but not seriously until I went out to Ireland to work 3 years ago, and with nothing to do and knowing nobody, bought a new pair of trainers and started running (and blogging!) 394 more words


Dublin marathon week 11 - 18 miles

Dublin marathon is creeping ever closer – only two more weeks until the taper now!

This week went much better than the last two, despite still having a pretty horrific work week which left me very stressed. 877 more words


Time to use this blog

It’s been an awful long time since my last post (in fact almost a year)
Reason being that it’s a bit of a farce to write a blog on running when you haven’t run for about a year (18th of May 2015 was when my injury presented itself, even writing that is painful, a whole bloody year). 371 more words
