Jenny's Second Marathon - Hopefully!

Well, it looks like I'm going to do it all again in 2009. Hoping to get accepted via the ballot for the London Marathon 2009. Having completed it in 2007 in 5 hours 3 minutes, I am just going to have to come back for more and beat my time after having a baby in January 2008.  This could be interesting!   Jenny

Anyone there???

Having abit of a bored Friday at home and stumbled across my blog.... just wondering, is anyone still here?  Brings back lots of fab memories, where have those 11 years gone? Hutchie x

Its Been A While

I didn’t realise that anyone actually read my blog, but on talking to a friend yesterday, he mentioned that I hadn’t written anything in months and wanted to know why not.  Truth be known, I haven’t donned my running shoes since the Bristol ½.  I’ve bee...

Off On Holibobs!?!?

Well, the Bristol ½ marathon hurt so much, I have decided we need a holiday! So, in fact, we are off to Dubai, on Saturday! Nothing actually to do with the marathon in fact.  We have been speaking to some friends in Dubai and they have been wanting us ...

F**k That Hurt!?!?

What was I thinking doing a half marathon just 7½ months after birthing?! I must be just plain stupid.   Well, I did it. It wasn't stylish and the time was appalling, but I have learnt a lot from today's run. I finished with a poor time o...

Back Out There

After the last 2 weeks disgraceful efforts at training, I got out last night and ran 5 miles in 53 minutes with Zoe. Not bad considering all day I was dreading running and have been putting it off for days. So, the plan is to do a steady 3 miles on Fri...

Whoops!!

My running has really suffered since I last blogged, i.e. I haven't done much at all! Zoe and I ran the 10 miles planned for the Friday, week before last, and it was haaaaaaaaard!!! Boy it was tough, even Zoe found it hard. It was a long run and it was...

Back At Home Now

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack. Have ya missed me, have ya?   I have just had a lovely time away up North with the in-laws. It was nice to have lots of people to fuss over and look after Sam. He was totally spoilt for the week, lots of cuddles, toys...

I Take The Last Blog Back!!

I think my last blog title was something like "Thank Goodness, Its Getting Better". Well, how wrong can I be?!?   I perhaps could be over dramatising it, but I have this afternoon done 7.3 miles in 1 hour, 18 minutes, and it was tough. It...

Thank Goodness – It’s Getting...

Following my last blog, fortunately the running has suddenly become easier and actually, dare I say it, enjoyable!   I did the 6 miles on Saturday - in the pouring rain. I didn't run with Zoe as planned. We had an arranged run at 11.00am,...

Just Over 5 Weeks To Go….

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……… I need to get running as it is only 5 weeks come Sunday to the Bristol half marathon. What was I thinking, entering a half marathon just months after having a baby?!?   The running has been really, really hard for m...

I'm Really Here!

At last, I have now moved to the other side! What a relief, not good being in cyber no-mans land. It was terribly lonely…   Anyway, not an awful lot to report since the weekend. I did haul myself out on my usual 2.2 miles around the Reser...

I'm Here!

I have now moved across to the other side to join you all in the 2009 Training blog, there's no going back now I've entered the ballot. Truth be known, I'm beginning to think I was abit hasty in applying! Oh well, we shall see what happens in October,...

My Marathon!

What a lovely day we had on Sunday. Sam and I settled on the sofa for 8.30am ready to watch you all on the Beeb. Breakfast, coffee and fresh orange juice were served by the well trained hubby. A fabulous cooked breakfast, consisting of;   ...

Reminiscing

After speaking with Annie on Tuesday, I spent an hour going back over my blog entries from last year. It was quite a trip down memory lane I have to say. One thing that did come out of reading my previous blogs is that boy, I really did drink a lot! My...

Carb Loading

Today I have been out for a fabulous lunch, with Annie. However, after downing a pizza, vanilla ice cream, a glass of rosè and a coffee, I am beginning to think that my body is coming out in sympathy for you guys on your taper and carb loading!!! My e...

And Again

Feeling rather chuffed with myself. I got out and ran around the Reservoir (Cheddar Reservoir) again yesterday afternoon, 2.2 miles in 23 minutes this time. It was a smashing run and was glad that I got out. I was feeling particularly niggly yesterday....

Ouch - That Hurt!

I have just come back from my first run in nearly a year. I have worked it out; the last time I ran was in June last year! I dusted off my running kit this afternoon and as soon as Hutch came home, I went out and did 2.2 miles in 24 minutes - not bad ...

Where Does The Time Go?

I have just realised that I haven't blogged in ages, even though I have been meaning to in WEEKS! My last post was on the 4th February - shame on me!   Sam is now over 9 weeks old and is growing REALLY fast. He is a very hungry baby and i...

The Full Story!

As the last post was so brief, I thought you deserved the full story of the arrival of Sam. Don't worry, I will spare the gory details, but I will try and share some of the best bits with you all.   So, it was Tuesday 22nd January and not...

Look What I Got!

So, as you have probably heard via Annie See Me Run, I've had the baby!!  Its a BOY!!  Yes, 4 weeks early, a 7 hour labour from start to finish - he was in a hurry to come into this world!!   Meet Sam Hutchinson     ...

Light at the End of the Tunnel

Just over 4 weeks to go now! How the time has dragged, and I know what you are all going to say, can't believe how quickly the time has gone - you're joking aren't you, it has gone soooooo very slow for me!   No more major difficulties wi...

Broken Promises!

Well, despite promising to keep you updated on my pregnancy, I confess I am pretty crap! Sorry!! I have been meaning to blog for ages, but I admit to feeling a complete fraud blogging and not having any running news for you. Thanks for all of your comm...

I'm Here, I'm Alive & I'm Sti...

Forgive me fellow bloggers, for it has been at least 7 weeks since my last confession! I have been meaning to blog for simply ages, I promise, but since my last post, I have only just dried my eyes from all of your lovely comments. Honest...

Confessions!

I am alive! But I think I have some explaining to do. To be truthful, I haven't been very well. I have had a month off work and have had 2 visits to hospital. Sounds all very dramatic I know, but it's not really. I am ...
