Cancelled Reading Half Review

Ran the cancelled Reading half today and was bitterly disappointed by the race. It was very cold, snowy ❄️ and icy so I started just before the 5 mile mark and made my way around the route. Continue reading →

BBC Radio 4 Eat to Run

I discovered three interesting episodes of The Food Programme on BBC Radio 4 the other day via a link I saw discussing the episode about running on LCHF which included an interview with Tim Noakes. Continue reading →

Race Report: Seville Marathon 2018

Seville Marathon Late last year I planned out my racing schedule for the "big races" up to and including the Comrades Marathon and planned to run three marathons in my build up: Seville, London and Milton Keynes, with Seville and Milton Keynes being training runs to assess my progress and London being a race for a new PB. Seville was also to act as my Comrades qualifier as I didn't run an autumn marathon and needed to get one in early and was planing to use it to get my A seeding too. This Sunday I hit the roads and ran the Seville marathon. The build up was 💩, the race itself turned out to go a lot better than expected. Continue reading →

3:04:20 at the Seville Marathon off bugger all training. This is gonna hurt in the morning 😬

If you see advice to do eccentric calf "raises" for achilles tendonosis/paratendonitis, do at least twice as many as recommended. I was doing 120-150 a day and felt no difference. Upped to 300+ in sets of 100 and what a difference. I felt my achilles stop creaking around about the 250th rep.

It's Far Too Early to Get Serious About Comrades Training!

As I slowly go from running to not and back again due to a niggly right achilles tendon, this worthy bit of advice from the king of Comrades, Bruce Fordyce, appeared in my feed reader: Continue reading →

2017 in Summary

I've just got home from my first run of the year and what better time to take a quick look back at what last year involved in my world of running. Continue reading →

It was a little damp at today's Mapledurham 10 (Ever tried to take a selfie of you own calves?)

I know I've got a Championship entry for next year's London Marathon but I think the peeps at RealBuzz Registrations are being a little optimistic about my abilities… Unreal expectations Not even Eliud Kipchoge can accurately complete the reg form 😂. The same problem exists for the predicted finish time and both fields are required. Problem solved with a little help of Chrome's Developer Tools to change the 1 to a 2 - I didn't want to set insane expectations of a sub-2 marathon 😂
