Good good good hydration

We all have different drinking requirements when we exercise. Check out my new blog post on devising your own personal hydration strategy which has some good recipes for smoothies and drinks. .

Sticky Ginger, Date and Walnu...

  My 10 mile run yesterday was wet and windswept, yet for some bizarre reason it was the best run I've had in a long time. I felt really strong and managed to speed up for the whole of the last mile despite the howling gale into which I was running. I ...

Steve Cram and the Bristol Ha...

  I can hardly believe that a whole week has gone by without me writing a post about the brilliant talk/Q & A workshop given for the Bristol Half Marathon. It has been a busy week; my book Go Faster Food has become available for pre-order, I've bee...

Sweet Potato and orange soup ...

  Anyone who ran the Bristol 10k yesterday might enjoy this delicious and comforting...and cheap...soup tonight for supper. It is dead easy and quick to make and absolutely stuffed with goodness. Sweet potatoesare really high in anti-oxidants; they are...

Carbo-loading for London - Taglioni pasta and venison steaks If you are carbo-loading for London this week then you won't go wrong with the meal I made last night - Italian in essence and really well balanced and delicious, high in low G.I. carbs, prote...

Bristol 10 k Training Camp

Liz and Martin Yelling very kindly invited me to do a presentation at their training weekend for the Bristol 10k last Sunday to promote my book Go Faster Food. Liz Yelling has read the book from cover to cover, loves it and has written a fantastic forew...

37 miles

It always sounds better when you add up your weekly mileage rather than count individual runs. My training for Stockholm is going to plan and I clocked up 37 miles this week, doing an average of 8.1 minute miles on my steady long run yesterday...not fas...

Pancake Day

Pancake day again. I must say that I wouldn’t run a marathon on a pancake breakfast, but to me there is no better treat than a traditional pancake rolled up with lemon and sugar….great for this evening’s post-workout treat!  We make so many different ...

Coriander and Mushroom Pilau

I'm feeling a bit down in the dumps today. Not only do I still have a sharp pain in my achilles which is stopping me from training, but last night, as I rushed across the road in the dark, I managed to almost poke my eye out by running straight into th...

Gnocchi...really yummy recove...

  I've been cooking gnocchi this week - simple comfort food at its best, whether you're in training or not. If you are in training, you need to recover quickly from your big workouts so that you can continue on that seeminglyrelentless schedule. It is r...

Oat Cuisine

    I am very excited about 2009 - my book is coming out in July, I have great plans for two further recipe books, I am signed up to run the London and the Stockholm marathons and I am on target to qualify for Boston in 2010. This is the week when hundr...

Melt-in-the-mouth Christmas B...

  Greek Biscuits: My daughter is turning out to be a bit of an intellectual and a linguist. She is, in fact, just about to do her GCSE in Ancient Greek...something which I remember attempting only for about a term. Her lovely teachers held a 'Classical...

11 miles fuelled by saffron rice

Now my book is more or less written - just adding the finishing touches before I send it off to the publishers next week - I have a little more time to get into some training. It is time to slowly start to build up my fitness for London next April. I am...
