BACK FOR MORE

Hiya all, this is my second FLM. I did 2007 through the ballot and went the same route again for 2008. Surprisingly I got in! Why am I doing this blog? I wish I had a one line answer to make it simple but I havent but please stick with me and hopefully you will  enjoy the experience. Maybe I will make new friends, make you laugh and cry along the way, and, if you havent done so already. Maybe I can inspire you to take up the FLM bug. Tomorrow I turn 35. ;(    I think I am feeling a little sorry for myself that I will be another year older so this blog is something for me to look back on and also something for my son to read and help him to understand his dad better and what drives me on to run. He is only 7.

week off

I cant believe I have had a full week of no running and no gym. I used to always think oh f**k it and go and and do more damage in the past but this time I have actually listened to my body and had a rest. Not that my ankle feels any ...

Out of the race

I have finally heeded medical advice and decided to take a rest. For a week anyway. I suffered an ankle injury last thursday playing football and its takin a while to heel. Must be age. Anyway, my body has been telling me I need a rest so no runn...

Knackers yard

Sorry but I forgot to add, went to the docs this morning to ask to be referred to the hospital regarding my ongoing hip/groin/thigh problem as requested my OHU physio. The doc had a quick poke and then told me I will be getting a letter in the po...

A week in Miles

At last some of the lethargy seems to be going from my legs after London. I am fitting in more runs and its not as painful. That is until I went for a 13 miler and only did 10. But that was down to fatigue and my hip/groin playing up again. ...

last week

Last week I managed 3 or 4 runs, I cant remember which now without looking at my training log. I seem to be getting more forgetful day by day. Anyhow, I do remember that my longest run was just over 7 mile, and although I didnt push my self on an...

half marathon training

I'm back out running regularly again now after the London marathon. (I had a weeks rest). As my team hasnt entered the summer league this year thank god it means no footy until August so I can concentrate on my running again and do a few more rac...

starters orders,....about time

At last, I get to run again. Today, or more correctly tonight, was my first run since FLM. Not due to injury or even fatigue. Just the fact that I know my body better now and am finally trying to look after it a little better than in the past. ...

footy

Still not back to running, but today I went to play footy and we won. Which means my team have won the divisional laegue title. A nice way me thinks to round off a great 7 days. Tomorrow...back to running. Cant wait! 

Post race post!

This is my first blog since last Sundays FLM. Another great experience in my mind and I'm sure the same can be said for thousands of others. I am going to try and write more and share my experience of last Sunday and also coming to te...

away I gooooooooooooooooo...

I am off to London this morning from sunny Preston. Cant wait. Two busy days and two busy nights at work have dampened the enthusiasm a little cos I am knackered. No doubt on the train I will read my FLM magazine another couple of times. I must k...

FAO EMILY DAVIES

Hi Emily. I hope you get this. Re: e-mail you sent for media interview. Unfortunately I have tried to reply to your request but am being told that you have private messaging blocked so I cant send reply to you. I am interested but wor...

Would you believe it! I have finally got my new running shoes and also found the time to get back to training. ( not to mention all the injuries are easing off), when bugger me its only a couple of weeks to the big day so now the tapering starts....

new shoes.I must be getting s...

Hi again everyone. Finally I am back on here and finally I have got some new running shoes. Wanted another pair of nike air pegasus for sentimental reasons and superstition as they got me round last year. Didnt have my size so I have gone up in t...

still here

Hi all. I am still here, honest. Aint had any time for blogging and very little for running which aint good I know. I promise I will update as soon as I have a little spare time. x

football glory beckoning?

I said it would be a busy week this week with everything to fit in and boy was I right. Still two days of it to go too. I had my rest on tuesday from running but ended up delivering hundreds of telephone books for some extrs cash. My legs wernt v...

week 7

Is it really week 7 already? Actually it seems to have gone slower this year, but I have missed a few days training last week and I know that if I miss anymore then suddenly I will be saying the opposite and starting to worry cos there wont be much time...

Annoyed

Dam!!!!! I got a slating last year for being obsessed with my training and neglecting other things. I have really tried hard not to do that this year but it must be happening again cos I missed my e-mail reminder for the Bupa Manchest...

Dragging myself back into it....

Today is my first blog since last wednesday, its also my first run since Tuesday !!!!!!! I havent been injured and I dont think I have lost motivation either. I have just put it down to one of those things where time is short, other p...

missed day

Today I woke up to a gloriously sunny morning. Very nice for running in I thought. Ok, so I didnt know that it was very cold outside!!! Nor did I know that yet again, for no other reason but poor time management would I not be running today!!! ...

tuesday

Even my blogs are getting behind time now. This is a note for yesterdays run cos yet again I couldnt find the time to do it on the day.  I had one of those precious and rare things yesterday, a lay in. I work shifts so thats why I had the oportun...

start of week 6

Awww bugger, its started already. Lethargy! And its only Monday. It seems to be creeping in more and more but hopefully I can keep it under control. Anybody else suffering? Its doubly annoying for me after last year because I as expec...

shoe update

Still not bought my new running shoes. If it wasnt so serious it would be funny. The shape and condition of my sole is crazy.

training turned upside down a...

I've been away for a couple of days. I dont mean away on hols or anything like that, just away from blogging. Its because I missed running for two days so I stayed away from adding to my blog because one, there wouldnt be much to write, and two b...

atill in 1 piece

What a long day, and its not even over yet! Today I wasnt working, but I still managed to almost miss my time slot for todays run. I managed it in the end though so thats good. This morning I had to go and see my physio. Really nice g...
