Grumpy Gits trip to the VLM

I like the idea of running marathons but somehow the training detracts - this is a record of my misery.

That's another one over with ...

Well got round despite an injury which meant the last 2 weeks of my taper meant no running at all. Finished in 3:51: 30. Happy to have finished given various health issues/niggles but I must admit disapointed with the time - paracetamol got me round; st...

We all seem to be hurtling to...

Funny how it seems ages away then sneaks up on you - starting the taper really makes race day seem closer. It's at this point I don't regret one single mile of my training programme - even if I whinged at the time. I think anyone who has trained for a m...

And so it goes on & on & on ....

Had the ultrasound a few days ago & can confirm that the piece of blue tissue they give you definitely does not remove KY jelly from pubic hair. The entire trip home in the car felt like I had a nest of eels living in my pants.  Most strange. They w...

The puppet masters mentioned in previous entries are sending me to hospital for investigations. Well just waiting for my ultrasound appointment to confirm unofficial diagnosis of occcult right inguinal hernia; hopefully it will actually confirm this bec...

Scrotum savages child

If you havn't read the January 15th blog post the following will make no sense You'd have thought that after such an intimate encounter she could have at least picked up the phone - no - not a word - and women say men are cruel and heartless! Anyway, pa...

Speed stuff for lone runners

Long runs have gone well. Kept a good base following the Nottingham marathon in September so have managed 20miles X 4 this month comfortably. Aim is to complete a 20 on alternate weeks until VLM. Being happy with the distance means I can spend more time...

A rather normal week for a ch...

After my spell as a medical finger puppet last week I knew this week would come as a bit of an anti climax. Paracetamol & Ibuprofen has meant I have been able to continue running so really happy with that.  A fair bit of speedwork this week with int...

All men be aware - running is...

This week has been a memorable training week for all the wrong reasons. It culminated with me laying on my side, naked below the waist with a ladies finger in my rectum - prodding bits you really don't want to know about - first time I'd ever met the wo...

First 20 miler of 2012 & nipp...

Had a day off work so went for my first 20miler of the year. Traffic free so could listen to the ipod - along Marriots way in Norfolk - out & back from Halfords.  I don't normally run with music but as it's traffic free I couldn't resist. Listened t...

Cross Country

Ran a cross country race in Thetford this afternoon. 5.25 miles over rough ground in 37:51 giving me 7:11 minute miles - happy with that for a crumbly old git. It was cool, cloudy & light breeze - couldn't have asked for better weather for running. ...

As I suspected

As I suspected - new year, new resolutions, new goals, new blog & new stinking cold. No point taking on fluids during a run - it just turns yellow, thickens up a bit and pours straight out of my nose. Everyone I meet seems to have the lurgy - I beli...
