Bushy parkrun 10th Anniversary

Bushy parkrun 10th Anniversary Thumbnail

We set off in a massive, diverse crowd. I was initially worried that I may trample on the toddler stood in front of me but that soon turned to concern that I might not actually be able to keep up with her. That set the tone. I battled it out with the youth and the [...]

A Soggy First for Janathon Day 4

A Soggy First for Janathon Day 4 Thumbnail

The alarm went off at 6.30 this morning so we could get across London for Lynn’s first parkrun. It needn’t have bothered, I’d been laying awake for hours listening to the rain drumming on the velux and the bin lid bouncing around the garden. If we hadn’t arranged to meet Suzan at Bushy Park I [...]

Sophisticated Ladies Run for Bolly

Sophisticated Ladies Run for Bolly Thumbnail

Back in 2007, at my first Bushy Park Run I was introduced to two women who exposed me to the joys of sophisticated running. I've never been a stranger to the pleasure of a post run Stella but these two raised the bar with their post run champagne and canapes. When you get invited to a [...]

Chrimble BPTT

Today was the annual showing of the Christmas Bushy Park Time Trial and I've been looking forward to this particular event for about 340 days, since my first introduction to the wonder of the time trial phenomonen back in February. It would have been easy to stay in bed this morning, it was dark and [...]

Salomon Raid Revo 20

Just made it back from todays running commute, it felt like a tough one but it was improved by the queues of festive travellers, I get a buzz from overtaking cars. We were released from work a couple of hours early so I got to run on the scenic side of the river and cross [...]

RPTT Update for 8th Dec 07 Thumbnail

Here's a quick post for completeness. I may still be slacking on the posting front but I am at least back out there and running! I think this week marks the first time since the Great North Run that I have actually persuaded myself to go out of the door on a non-event related excuse. [...]

Hypochondria and GNR Week 4/10

Here's a quick update on the GNR training status. Quite a low mileage week but at least the runs were taken at race pace. Race reports to follow. A scary article in Running Fitness suggests I should be up to 45 miles per week in my build up to a half - holy moley! I've [...]

BPTT Update For 11th August

BPTT Update For 11th August Thumbnail

Before I start, I have to get something off my chest - why on earth would someone choose to enter the search string "grotty old women" and double why on earth would google decide to direct them to my site? No grotty old women to see here - walk away from the computer, freaky google [...]

A Twitching Post

I headed back to Richmond Park this evening for a quick(ish) run around the park with the novelty of daylight in my favour. It felt pretty tough and my accompanying bike buddy was moaning rather a lot about the distance so I cut the route short by heading up a unfamiliar track near Ham gate. [...]

The Road to GNR Week 2/10

My GNR training plan includes the dreaded interval session which is gradually turning ino the dreaded and therefore avoided interval session. I was hoping that a regularish visit to BPTT would suffice as my speed training component but that does rather require me to get there. This Saturday was missed as I was volunteering at [...]
