RunwithRoxy

A continuation of the orginal Runwith Roxy blogs. Roxy is now 10 years old and sadly can no longer run the distances with me, although we still run park runs togther from time to time.

The quest for a sub 4.30 marathon was achieved in Brighton and now i am enjoying running marathons for running sake,rather than chasing a time. New York will be marathon number 10

No Jelly babies in New York

New York Marathon – where do I start? The short version   In short it was the most incredible day.  A HUUUUUUGE event, incredibly well organized, perfect running weather, the start line spectacular, the route was great, and the crowd was full and nois...

New York - running number 46586

Just looking at the hugeness of that number,  blows me away! New York claims to be the biggest marathon in the world (I don’t know if that’s true?) but even if it isn’t, it feels crazy to think I will be running with 46,586 plus other people, a week on ...

Mental Toughness

I wrote this blog update and was ready to post before the very sad news came in from Marika's family at the weekend. Of course my whitterings, trails and tribulations seem trival now in comparisson. However, if there is one thing that Marika had in spad...

Increasing the Mileage

The last month I have been focusing on increasing the length of the long slow run and I am finding it tough. I don’t think its running the distance that the actual problem, its more about keeping motivated to keep going once I hit the 10 plus miles. By ...

Snowdonia the summary Sometimes you can have a great weekend…  sometimes a fantastic weekend…. sometimes an epic weekend and then very rarely a weekend like we had in Snowdonia last week. Great, fantastic, amazing, epic all rolled into one. Memories th...

Retail therapy

Good evening everyone. What a week it’s been for many of the team – some epic runs and long walks. For me it been a week or two of retail therapy to cheer myself up– with a bit of training for Snowdonia too.  Daughter number 1 has started her 3rd year ...

What are the maths of maratho...

Whilst out on my long run yesterday I found myself thinking about how the numbers add up for marathon training. Obviously come the big day of the Marathon itself you need to run 26.2 miles – although in my first London Marathon, too much weaving meant ...
