It's all OVER!!!

We did it! Team Jelly baby Junkies are now officially successful ultra endurance athletes. 100 kilometeres walking all day and all night. Various blogs, updates and pics to follow. I'm too knackered to do anymore at the mo...

Betty Swollux - Parts II and III

Hello Runners I am no longer a runner (albeit temporarily) - merely a walker. But I do walk a long way. This week, the equivalent of two marathons in three days. On Wednesday I decided to check out the hilliest part of the...

Betty Swollux

It was hot out there today...  I left home at 6.30am and started walking. I finally stopped at a pub in Bagshot - 32 miles later. I cant say I felt great at the end, but I could have done more if not for two things. Firstly, Spain are playing ton...

hello?

Just reporting that I've got nothing to report.

Easy peasy pudding n pie

I bunked off work today and went for a 25 mile stroll along the Basingstoke Canal. This training thingy works dunnit? After a few long walks that left me feeling pretty tired and with several blisters, I found today really easy by comparison - I ...

I'm back. GroaWWWWnnnnnnnn...

Yep, I'm back home, and depressed already! Too much rain, too many people, too much work... too much moaning! (from me, mainly!) Oh well, I've got the Trailwalker to look forward too (!!??**???!!) OMG! Our brief sojourn to...

Downs Link 37 mile march

I am totally knackered today - I even had a couple of hours siesta this afternoon. The reason? 37 miles walking along the Downs Link yesterday, from Shoreham on Sea to Chilworth near Guildford - 12 hours including breaks for drinks and sarnies. I...

Synchronous event

There I was, sitting in a pub in Clapham on Friday afternoon, chatting away to an old friend after a meeting. There was live horse racing on the big screen down the other end of the bar and I noticed that the race being shown was from Brighton. I...

Silly Achilles

Well, after only 3 gentle running miles on Tuesday night my achilles is once again playing up - sore to the touch and stiffening whenever I'm asleep/stting down for any length of time. BUM! It looks like I will have to 'rest' from running until a...

Thames Path Stroll

I am knackered. Not as knackered as last Saturday, but still more knackered than Mrs Pabs approves of ;-) 32.3 miles walked in 10 hours 10 minutes - which includes roughly an hour lost to several short re-fuelling breaks on various ri...

Moved from pre-contemplative ...

...and tomorrow morning I hope to move into CHANGE. Proper like. From 5 days of sloth to ... a 30 mile walk along the Thames! Not guaranteed yet, but pretty likely (errr...I'm seriously contemplating it..). Next week I am going to go ...

Ridgeway Report - 28+ miles a...

The Ridgeway walk was great, up to a point! That point was when first one, and then two of my team-mates succumbed at 26+miles to the scorching heat and effects of nine hours in the very strong sun. More later…   The day s...

Plodathon

I took a day off work and then, armed with an OS 1:25000 map, took off for the day! (well, for an 8 hour shift anyhow) My resulting 22 mile walk through the Surrey countryside was most enjoyable, I have to say. I'm beginning to actual...

Waving to Her Maj!

What a lovely day out there today. I went for a 20 mile walk from home to Windsor and back via Chobham common, Sunningdale, Windsor Great Park and Virginia Water  - very enjoyable it was too. Chobham Common Queen Vic memorial ...

Grrrrr------Update

Bloody achilles decided to be sore again this morning. I'm hobbling around and feeling very grumpy! I think I'm fated to be a walker for evermore. Oh well, Camino Santiago here I come. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ...

Back running

After a couple of weeks 'off' (walking marathons and stuff) while resting my dodgy left achilles, I finally got out for a run. Noice it were too Guv'nor - a dappled, sunlit and warm evening run along a deserted stretch of the canal. Almost desert...

More than a Marathon today...

Well, only just. I walked 26.4 miles in 8hrs 8mins - not counting a 20min lunch break. I am absolutely KNACKERED, and my feet are caning me summat awful. I find Walking so much more tiring and painful than running - I'm not sure I wou...

FLM 2009

After entering the FLM ballot I thought I'd mosey over here to the 2009 blog section - hopefully lots of my realbuzz buddies from the past two FLM years will do the same. My main training aims for the summer are to complete my first u...

Trailwalker Week-end

I met up with Lou, Anni, Laura and Hat on saturday at Oxfam HQ for a trailwalker info meeting. It was inspiratonal, but scary too - 100kms is a long, long, long, long way - 62+miles - yikes! As if training for that in July is scary, the realisati...

Walking wounded

Mrs Pabs and i managed 11 miles in 4 hours 30 minutes today... not fast I know, but we were walking, and we did stop for a drink at two Pubs! Very nice it was too - sunny and warm, and through some nice countrside and little lanes. My...

Super Seven

After two successive weeks of virtually bugger-all mileage I girded up my loins and got myself out there today for a sunny super seven miles. Hooray! I'd like to be able to report that I'd been deliberately resting up, avoiding the recent bad wea...

I've tried to post here twice tonight - waxing lyrical and long about the past week or so - then pressing SUBMIT only to see it all disappear! Grrrrrrrrrrrr! I cant be arsed to type it all again.. so... basic details.. 10 ...
