A Lunge for the Samaritans

A Lunge for the Samaritans Thumbnail

I’ve just started another 12 week round of fitness and fat loss with Julia Buckley. Last time was The Fat Burn Revolution but now its stepped up a notch and become Extreme Inferno. I kicked off the week with an Insanity styled grilling called SweatMax. After 25 minutes leaping around the front room I was [...]

A Juneathon Triple

I've had a mini streak. 3 days jogged and logged but I've fallen at the blogging hurdle. Each run has been just a tiny bit worse than the last one. It started on Friday with a late night run after an "end of exams" celebratory evening. I valiantly tackled the hilly, round the block, circuit [...]

Terrible timing today. I was on twitter this morning trying to get Lynn to wake up so we could hit the trail. It would have been more effective to have given her nudge. As it was, we didn't get to leave the house til midday and then spent at least an hour driving the 30 [...]



A Stretch Challenge for Day 4 and 6

A Stretch Challenge for Day 4 and 6 Thumbnail

I have overuse niggles from the waist downwards. Tender spot on my hip, tight hamstrings and a couple of shin splints for good measure. I basically haven't yet recovered from my very long walk almost 2 weeks ago. It's been quite fortuitous that while I'm in need of some rehab, James Dunne of Kinetic Revolution [...]

Running with the Foxes

Running with the Foxes Thumbnail

I went out for a solo run this evening. Just me, the dope dealers on the hill, and a load of foxes. The dealers remained in their BMWs, exhaling aromatic compounds from the windows but the foxes criss-crossed my path the entire way round. On my third loop, 3 small fox cubs tumbled out across [...]

A First Strava Crown

I downloaded Strava to my phone this morning, half expecting it to nestle between the many other unused GPS run logs that do little more than clog up my iPhone memory, but while reading a few Juneathon blog posts before work I was intrigued to see that @BandTRuns was coincidentally mentioning Strava Segments. It seems that [...]

Reluctant Running in Happy Valley

I had planned an early night followed by an early morning session on the treadmill but then Happy Valley intervened. We started with a quick episode before bed but one thing led to another and episode 4 happened. If you've seen episode 4 you'll understand the havoc it plays with any desire to sleep or [...]



A Juneathon Recovery Run

I've had my feet up for most of the past week, recovering slowly from the after effects of the London2Brighton walk. Today was the 1st of June and that means an end to bone-idleness, masquerading as recovery, and the start to Juneathon - a month of running and ever more tedious daily blog posts. Apologies [...]



Uphill from Box Hill to Epsom

Next weeks race t-shirt dropped through the letterbox this morning. I wonder how many people will use that as the a perfect get out of jail card and abandon the trouble of racing at next weeks Great Trail Run at Keswick. It certainly crossed my mind. I run for pride as well as t-shirts, so [...]

Gadget Overload

I picked up a Nike Fuelband yesterday so now have yet another spur to action in the month of June. I've set my initial target at 3000 fuel points, whatever that means but only got there in the final hour by pushing myself onto the treadmill for another late night run. I've got a lot [...]
