Lockdown Syndrome

Lockdown Syndrome: It’s a bit like slowtivation really; I’m not sure if it’s a thing, but just because someone else hasn’t decided yet to call it a thing, doesn’t mean it’s not a thing. Everybody’s suffering it – one way or another. I’m not really co...

Slowtivation

I don’t know if it’s actually a thing – I don’t care – I’m making it a thing. I suspect many of you will recognise it even before I’ve given definition to the word. Slowtivation (noun) - a state of mind where internal motivation exists, but is very sl...

Struggle

Whilst some of the folks on this site I have come to count amongst my friends, and equally amongst my heroes, are stepping out there doing battle with ultra-marathon distances the likes of which I cannot (as yet at least) contemplate taking on myself; I...

And you thought the trains ra...

I'm going backwards I think. Not actually going backwards, just writing about the last thing first and the first thing last.  I wasn't really going to write about the last thing at all to begin with but then, on reflection, it seems to have grown more...

Snowdon Race 2019

We've history, this race and I. My first experience of it was in 2012. That brilliant, beautiful, bolstering year, when Britain had the Olympic Games. Even the flame itself had made it to the top of Snowdon. The image of Sir Chris Bonnington, stood me...

The Butterfly Effect?

Chain Reaction? Tales of the Unexpected? Wasn't sure what to call this blog. I guess I could have gone with the title of the main event - The Mynd Drover 20 - but there's more to it than that, it has been a busy running week. Tuesday night - 5 a-side...

Marching on....

I don’t really do this very often, but when I’ve gone to the trouble of building myself a spreadsheet that lets me compare what I’ve planned to do against what I’ve done, I may aswell have a butchers and see what nuggets I can extract: Total distance r...

Work Hard, Play Hard, Work Ha...

Work hard, play hard, keep partying like it’s your job.... Great tune 😊. Great timing 😊. Great memories of Rachel Kelly’s rather suggestive and inappropriately erotic  dancing, for a work’s night out anyway, in a pair of heels higher than stilts! She...

Halfway House

It's only going to be a quick blog this, but it's one I need to get down. I'm struggling. I made a commitment to a friend, a good friend. One I value more highly than I think she'll ever now. One who inspires me, and many other people, way more than s...

Tour De Llyn Llydaw

Start as you mean to go on they say. Well the way I mean to go on this year is getting some joy back into my running. That isn’t coming my way if I do my running on the roads. It doesn’t inspire me. The tarmac hurts me. The drudgery of being held in a...
