Milton Keynes hell run!

  What a difference a week makes! Last week I ran London , a fabulous experience where I ran with the angels lifting me along on a cloud of encouragement and this week I ran the Milton Keynes marathon and danced with the devil all the way around, it was...

The London fun run

Lthe London fun run 9:01pm, 24th Apr This blog is linked to London Marathon So my first London marathon done and only my second one. I was really looking forward to this race, having watched it for many years on the tv...

Silverstone half.....the whol...

So looking at this from a small scale, I so wanted a sub 2 hours. Last year I ran this in 2 hours 5 mins 51 sec, a whole 16 mins off my first half in 6 months, so one year on, a lot learnt along the way and a marathon under my belt I knew a sub 2 was po...

18 miles , broken, tired but ...

So today I decided to do my long run as I would have company for 10 of those 18 planned miles but as I said during my last marathon training, each week you take out the same body but a different brain and that really showed up today! The brain was actua...

Bonkers!!!!

Some people think I'm bonkers..... This song came on my iPod today and just about summed up how I felt! The 7 th week of training came to an end with a 16 miles. So today's plan was to head out alone and get 7 miles done and then return home to pick up ...

Those hills again !

So Monday brought me a quick 4 miles and today it was the return of the hills! I should have checked my plan as I ran 8 miles of hills and I  only needed to do 7! Oh well an extra mile closer to London! It seems the last week I have either been tired or...

End of another week

So another week is over and it felt an odd week as overall I ran 33 miles but these were split over 5 runs as 7, 8,6,6,6, apparently this helps the body recover a bit, really? Next week brings me to 16 miles on Sunday, I guess that's how it's going to b...

Different day, different run...

The plan said 6 easy miles and that's what it got. After yesterday's hill running today's felt easy:) Not a lot to say today :)  Keep running :) 

Let love be your energy.....

So the plan said 8 miles of hills, so that's what I set out to do but I can assure you that the words of that Robbie williams song playing on my iPod ' let love be your energy' was not working today. By mile 5 I felt like heading home, I was not feeling...

Just 7 today :)

The plan said 7 miles today the problem I had was that it needed to be after work! After my marathon training last year through the summer I discovered I was definatley a morning runner, up at 6 am out the door ASAP before the brain could protest. So th...

13 miles.....really?

So the plan said 13 miles, after the Baltic weather of saturday -13 here, the mind was saying  WTF! Initially I decided on splitting the run up, 3 miles to the gym, 7 miles on treadmill and 3 miles home as surely every one knows this way it's not really...

10 weeks to go and the dream ...

I have run for years but the majority of those years were in a gym on a treadmill. It's just one of those things that I have always found relatively easy to do. Three years ago I took up the challenge of the great north run, my first race, half marathon...
