London Marathon – 24/04/2018

The London Marathon is always one of my favourite days of the year. The atmosphere and general buzz in the days before the race is awesome, and the day itself is unlike anything else you’ll experience in running. If you haven’t done it before, you need to get yourself on that start line. It was… Continue reading London Marathon – 24/04/2018

Diss Duathlon – 08/04/2018

It’s the one they’ve all been talking about lately in the press. I’ve had a reporter staked outside my flat for the past couple of months, trying to glean an insight into how my training has been going. There’s no doubt that the Diss race is the premier event on the Norfolk Duathlon calendar (by… Continue reading Diss Duathlon – 08/04/2018

Surrey Half – 11/03/2018

The Surrey Half is one of my favourite events of the year, and never fails to disappoint. This would be my 3rd time running, but the first time I’d actually be ‘racing’, as in the previous events I’d acted as an official pacemaker, helping others try and achieve their goals. From the outside looking in,… Continue reading Surrey Half – 11/03/2018

Wokingham half marathon – 18/02/2018

It’s been an odd couple of months. With my goal race for 2018 (Ironman UK) still 5 months away, it’s difficult to look that far ahead into the future and get really excited. I’ve done some shorter, low-key running races, but gone into these fatigued and unmotivated, which has led to mediocre (by my standards)… Continue reading Wokingham half marathon – 18/02/2018

Not always (but usually) the bridesmaid

After a barren spell of blog posts, February is off to a flyer with two within a week. If my Mum is to be believed (and she’s the only person that has ever said this to me, with good reason), then a career in sports journalism beckons, so I should probably get into the knack… Continue reading Not always (but usually) the bridesmaid

South of England cross country championships – 27/01/2018

It’s nearly been a month since my last post. I suppose January is never really much of a racing month. It’s more of a, grind out the sessions in the dark and cold kinda month. Not glamorous, especially when you’ve lost some fitness over the Christmas period, but it’s always really pleasing when you start… Continue reading South of England cross country championships – 27/01/2018

New Year’s Day triathlon – 01/01/2018

You know the drill with this one. I open with how all normal people should be out drinking on New Year’s Eve, etc etc etc. We all know by this point I’m anything but normal. So, by now it’ll be no surprise to learn I’d yet again signed up for the New Year’s Day triathlon,… Continue reading New Year’s Day triathlon – 01/01/2018
