How to Tape Your Feet for Blister Prevention

How to Tape Your Feet for Blister Prevention Thumbnail

I've had some great results from pre-taping my feet prior to long hikes and can now walk around 40 miles, confident that I won't get blisters. Even on this year's London2Brighton challenge where the weather conditions were appalling and I ended up wearing two pairs of unfamiliar shoes, I managed 57km feeling physically broken but [...]

I've done quite few of my long training walks in my hiking boots but none of them were considered successful. I decided quite a long time ago that the London2Brighton 100k Challenge would be completed in my super cushioned Hokas' with my Inov8s' held back for the second half when my feet would likely have [...]

The UnderRound Challenge – A Marathon of Selfies Thumbnail

In my quest to complete at least one 100km challenge this year, my weekends have been given over to long and usually dreary walks. In an attempt to stir things up I thought I'd try a home-brew challenge.

This weekend we took part in our first Obstacle Race - The Wolf Run. A 10k trail run through Woods, over Obstacles, across Lakes and finally through Fields.

Janathon Day 1 Running on Fumes Thumbnail

I always kick Janathon off with a post-midnight run. I enjoy the cool night breeze and the fusty haze from thousands of celebratory fireworks and the smug satisfaction as I publish my Day 1 Janathon post before going to bed. Last night, as I wobbled away from the party at 3am, barely managing to tie [...]

Running with the Forerunner 620 Thumbnail

Boxing Day is a day for soggy running, or at least it has proved to be for the last 2 years running. It is also becoming a traditional day for trying out new running gadgets. This year I was spoiled with the Forerunner 620, the latest and most advanced GPS running watch from Garmin with [...]

Convict Conditioning 2 Review

Convict Conditioning 2

Paul "Coach" Wade is back with a second instalment of his impressive body weight calisthenics routine, Convict Conditioning 2 - from the depths of San Quentin prison I've previously reviewed the original Convict Conditioning and I'm still working my way slowly through the progressions to the Big Six strength moves.
