Pabs corre otra vez!

I'm now running regularly and have a place in the 2013 VLM - so here I am back on the realbuzz boards once more.

Reality returns

I've finally accepted that I wont be lining up next to the wife on sunday to run the Portsmouth coastal marathon. A couple of grumpy old man days behind me, I am now pleased to be free to run 4 or 5 times a week and not have to save myself for a long ru...

Bah Humbug!

Only managed 17.3 miles yesterday before stopping and getting a lift back - I was knackered. My legs seemed fine but my energy levels were non-existent at the end. I'm seriously considering bombing out of the marathon in two weeks time, and resetting my...

Knackered but pleased...

Glad to report that I managed to run my planned 18 miles yesterday, so feel pleased to get more or less back on track for my marathon in 3 weeks time. I was, and still am knackered, but pleased with my 10.05m pace. I'm planning a 20 miler next week-end...

Tentatively back in the groov...

Managed a ploddy 5.5 miles this afternoon - a bit of light relief between intense work laptop sessions. It felt good I'm pleased to say, and has raised my confidence of being able to complete my planned long run at the weekend. Todays run felt easy and ...

Hello... remember me? No? Did...

It's been a long time since i blogged but I thought I'd give it a go again... and try to stay with it, and the running, for a bit longer this time. I deferred my VLM place from this year to next April and apart from a break due to injury recently I've b...

On track...

Well, back again for a quick catch-up posting - for what it's worth! I'm pleased to report that my calf injuries are keeping quiet for now, and that I'm back on schedule for my revised Brighton/London training plan. Two 6 milers on Monday and last night...

Busy but good.

It's a busy week so far, getting everything sorted at work and preparing to go away for Xmas on Monday - but i have still managed to get out for a couple of runs. 5 miles last night, followed by 2 more just now, just to shake my stiffish legs out. The p...

Back on course...

Hello peeps. It's been a long time since I've blogged on Realbuzz, but here I am again :-) After a late summer spate of injuries as I resumed training I'm pleased to report that I'm back on course with my marathon training plan - aiming for Brighton 201...

Hello again.....

Good luck to everyone with their taper and VLM race day exertions - i shall be jealous (but pretty relieved too, if i'm honest!) watching the VLM on TV. Will be entering 2011 VLM before you get back home tho.. Those of you who remember me might(?!) be ...

London British 10k

Well, despite a debilitating two week head-cold and cough-fest I managed to get myself round the British 10k today, alongside my lovely daughter Emily - the first race we have run together, and good practice for the VLM, which we have both entered. I ha...

Four more

After feeling decidedly dodgy this morning  (not sure why) I felt better as the day wore on and decided to add four miles to my tally for June - which means i've now averaged four miles per day this month so far! Up to about a year ago four miles was m...

More trudge, trudge, trudging...

Another two miles last night, then same again this evening - whew! it were hot out there int' sunshine :-) Despite eating 'normally' for the past two or three weeks i seem to have managed to keep the weight off that i lost a few weeks ago. It was hearte...

Chuffed

I'm keeping up the regular runs and slowly building my mileage - 3 miles again last night and the same again planned for tomorrow. Anytime soon I'll be looking round for a half marathon to train for! I'm also chuffed cos Barca beat Man United and their ...

trudge, trudge, trudge...

Three miles along the canal straight after work (on the towpath Dim, not in the canal...sigh..) was just what the head doctor ordered at the end of a busy week. Rest day tomorrow then a four miler on Sunday. I'm back in the running groove, sort of anywa...

If i were a politician i coul...

Today saw me enter the Saucony era of my running life. New trainers - £90 - after three successive pairs of Asics i opted for a change. I'll be wearing them to work sometimes, so perhaps i can put them on my expenses, along with the weedkiller for my mo...

Here we go again...

Morning amigos I'm back running (and dieting!) and have entered the VLM 2010. I WILL be doing a marathon again in 2010, even if it means going abroad or, as a last resort, oop north! I'm back to running 3 or 4 times a week although 3 miles at a time is...

On schedule

Only 4 miles, but it was my Reading Half Marathon week 1 target and i did it. Hooray. I cant believe just how unfit I've managed to become over the past few months. It was only 8 months since I ran a half marathon  in under two hours, and much less than...

Out running at last

Me and mrs pabs went for a walk/run/walk/run/walk for 3.5 miles around Virginia Water today. Very pleasant it was too - lots of ducks and wildlife, and a bit of sunshine as well. We ran for 1.5 miles so another 3 miles this week and I'll be on target fo...

Hello? anyone remember me?

I'm back! Blogging not running. Waiting for my new Asics before I venture out. I have entered the Reading Half tho... watch this space.

Hard work

Well, I've been for another couple of runs this week, and I'm due to go out again this evening, but 2.5 miles at a time is all I seem to be able to manage. Jeez, I'm feeling unfit, fat and fifty-summat all right!! Is there any hope for me? No? Oh...

This is hard...

This is hard work...getting back into running I mean. I managed 2.5 miles on Sunday and then the same again last night in the peeing rain, and through loadsa puddles - Noice, as Annie would say. I'm not sure I could have run much further even if ...

born again runner

I actually got up off my phatlardyarse and went out running yesterday evening - dragged grumbling and whimpering by Mrs Pabs - and managed two miles along the towpath. I was whacked after (no, not whacked as in spanked, although I did suggest to ...

Recovered

...after the Trailwalker... just about anyhow. My leg muscles and feet have been fine, but I have just felt so weary. Cream-crackered - totally. Mentally I'm still up there though, the sense of pride and satisfaction remains, as does ...

I’m tired and my feet hurt!

**Updated** Photos added I'm tired and my feet hurt!   'Why is that?' I hear you ask. Well, I'll try to explain…   After going down to (near) Petersfield to register on the Friday evenin...
