Still Running Just and Just a Bit of Cycling

Thanks for looking in.

Hi I'm a forty something dad of two,living in the deep and dark South West.

Finally after 5 rejects managed to get in 2009. But I did it I really did it I got around in 4h 8min and 22 secs and I did end up walking on a couple of occasions, from 22 mile. What a brilliant day and a truely overwhelming occasion.

I've now signed up for a bit of a new challenge on 09.06.11 I along with 9 others will be head off to John O'Groats with the aim to ride approx 900 miles in 9 days finishing at Lands End on Sat 18.06.11

I am hoping to use this opportunity to raise funds for Parkinson UK. The guy who has organised the trip's father and a family friend are both suffers. If you feel you would like to sponsor me on my jourmey then please see the link below.

I would of course value any hints or advice any of you bloggers have got.

Many thanks

Running Buddies

Its great to see that the site is getting really quite busy at the moment so I thought it was about time I wrote a bit of an update.   After returning from Snowdon I had a couple of weeks away from running to try and let the calf settle down which see...

snowdon 2018

Where do start after a weekend like that, well I guess its best to start at the beginning really. I’d been running quite well during the summer and even managed a sub 8 minute miling 15 mile run just before our summer holiday. I had the best intentions...

2017

  Well another New Year starts and I’m still pants at getting these blogs out new year, new me we’ll see.   Since Snowdon I seem to have been constantly tapering. The weekly Saturday long run has now declined to about 8 miles. Where as the Tuesday and T...

SNOWDON 2016

G’day one and all this is going to be a bit of a long one but here’s my version of Snowdon 2016 and what was a brilliant weekend. The training in the run up to Snowdon didn’t go quite according to plan but when does it ever. Basically I started later th...

They Came From Far And Wide

So the call came: Wanted one team of selfless individuals, to make a difference, to challenge them in whatever way they see fit with a chance to raise the profile and some much needed funds for a small charity and to do it in RED for one of their own.  ...

Ultra Report

Things are a bit quite on here at the moment guess its that busy time of year with holidays and family stuff taking up so much time and I’m guilty cant believe its taken me nearly 2 weeks since my last post and my ultra. Where to start on the ultra repo...

The Ultra Attempt Is On

What an epic challenge Angus the Brave completed so successfully last weekend a true warrior, true buzzer and could the famous baton have been in safer hands. Im so pleased for what he achieved and to be honest in awe of him. I have got my own challenge...

Next Challenge in Doubt !!!

  Hi folks what a weekend once again team real buzz well and truly smashed it individual  challenges were undertaken and those challenges felt the full force of what an incredible bunch of people can achieve. Brilliant.   My own effort was somewhat of a...

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN

  I’m not really where to start on this one and to be honest last weekend was all a bit surreal; I still can’t believe that I was quite so very fortunate to run the marathon on Sunday. However my good fortunate was a direct result of somebody else’s mis...

Another Late Catch Up

  I can’t quite believe that yet another month has flown by since my last post, but as always team real buzz continues to defy the odds and pushes the boundries yet further and faster. How can you fail to be inspired by the challenges and the achievemen...

Bad week Good week

Hi all you wonderful buzzers I hope you’re all enjoying the lighter morning and evenings and it certainly helps taking that first step out of the door. After January seemed to last an extra couple weeks February is absolutely flying by and we’ll soon be...

D'oh

  Sorry folks but I’ve got a bit of a apology during my last post I mentioned that I ran my 1 mile repeats at about 6:30 pace. However after running half mile splits at a fractionally quicker pace last week I thought I would review my mile stats. And su...

A Question Awaits

  Got too start off this post with a question now that so many of us are running the dreaded threshold sessions I was wondering what constitutes a recovery after each effort. Is it a case of getting your breath back, walk or jog? Currently I’m finishing...

Whats New

And so the journey begins once again.   So things have been pretty full on since my last post. My daughter turned 18 at the end of November and her birthday celebrations lasted well over a week and I’m still trying to come to terms that she’s an adult n...

Post Snowdon

  Apologies, this post should have been written a couple of weeks ago, but after loosing it once and doing very little since Snowdon, the motivation has been somewhat missing. Time to play catch up once again.   I must to admit to feeling slightly fragi...

We Came,We Saw,We Ran

I guess it’s my turn to try to get some words into print about what was for me a simply fantastic few days away. Sorry but this is going to be a long one but I need to put it somewhere so here goes. My adventures started slightly earlier than most as I ...

Its Nearly Time

Its nearly time folks the bags are packed just need to get the last of the supplies and then by this time tomorrow I should be well on my way to meeting up with the HU massive. Thanks very much for putting me up HOBS.  I'm looking forward to catching up...

Last long run

    Got to start by saying a massive congratulation’s to team AOB on what they achieved last weekend a simply fantastic achievement and the blogs well they speak for themselves. Now 102 miles is of course a bloody long way now with the help of the lap t...

Running Advice

Anyone out there ever received some random running advice from a complete stranger whilst you've been out running. I was out on Wednesday evening and about 8 miles into my run and was just running up around the front of Plymouth Hoe when a lady in her m...

Its Been A Long Time Coming

  But after nearly 18 months I finally managed a 20 plus mile run on Friday morning, it wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t quick and the last 4 miles were tough really tough and included 1300 feet of climbing. The route I had planned kept getting changed due to a...

Cold Bath Time

    Help, I can’t quite believe how quickly Snowdon is coming round, if that’s a scary prospect then just think how soon some of the hero’s of this site are feeling with their epic challenges just around the corner. Inspirational the lot of them and it’...

Mileage Gradually Increasing

As seems par for the course with me at the moment the weeks seem to be flying by with out me making time to get a regular posting out there. Whilst the majority of the stuff you people are attempting and absolutely nailing are quite simply astonishing, ...

Hawkesbury Festival Of Running

Well I’ve finally got round to getting my take on the Hawkesbury Festival of Running into print. This is attempt No 4 and to be honest each time I’ve written my account I haven’t been happy with it because basically the haven’t done justice to the weeke...
