VLM 2015 Week 4 Training – 12...

Training is getting better and better by the week. Hit every run and every mile on the nose this week. Even a sniffle and shin pain couldn't deter my training. The shin started on the Friday and that night I wrapped it in ice and elevated. I rested it o...

From London to Bexley via the...

So you’ve got a busy Sunday ahead of you. You have to travel from London to Bexley to get to the new home to see builders, visit the wedding venue, meet parents for lunch and get some serious DIY done for the new house. The dilemma is where you squeeze ...

VLM 2015 Week 3 Training – 05...

A good week of running let down by a long run that was cut short short due to my poor time management. I did get out on every run though so every cloud... A pretty uneventful week highlighted by my only point of note being the bedding in my new shoes......

A year of running...

Marathon training is well under way and despite Christmas and the freezing weather both doing their best to halt me with their tempting foods and ice covered roads, I have been getting stuck into the schedule. Last week was a (slight) struggle as Christ...

And so it begins...

I’m sure no one needs reminding but it is now (only) 18 weeks until the 2015 London marathon, which means a lot of people’s main training, including mine, start today. I come into my training off a very good week of running, managing to get 37 miles und...

The 'inconvenient' Christmas ...

Not a great or eventful week training wise last week as I only managed to get in three runs and 16 miles in total. There wasn’t so much a timing issue but more a merrier, self-inflicted one… We’re well into the festive season now and the Christmas parti...

Training Booked In

So I have finally started putting together my next 18 weeks of training and it is looking very daunting, but very exciting and I’m chomping at the bit to get stuck in. There are some big miles in there but I think it’s important to go for quality over q...

A busy couple of weeks...

Running in the last couple of weeks has been hampered a bit as my partner and I finalised our house purchase and began to get everything into our new home. Although I’ve not been able to put in many quality miles for speed work, I have been able to put ...

Why I Run....

A question asked to a lot of runners is 'why do you run', which is usually closely followed by the question 'how do you do it?' and 'isn't it boring...?' My answer to the first is simple. I run because I love it. I love the easiness and convenience of i...
