So with two weeks to go until the Budapest marathon I had Saturday down as a key training day to log some much needed miles before the big day. Obviously Saturday is designated as Parkrun day, so you can see we have a problem here. The solution seemed straight-forward enough to me; why not do … Continue reading Brockwell Parkrun – 27/09/2014. And then, disaster strikes..
Recovering from Sunday's marathon this week has consisted of having just the single day off running, with Budapest firmly in my sights already. It was business as usual this saturday morning with a trip to Brockwell with Katie (her last before swanning back off to university for her final year of 'study'). My legs seemed … Continue reading Brockwell Parkrun – 20/09/14
This post is part two of my recollection of the Challenge Weymouth weekend - for part one please see the previous post (I'm not smart enough to put some fancy link in here which will re-direct you to the first post). The alarm was set for 6.15, which was quite unnecessary because as normal I … Continue reading Challenge Weymouth – The Race

For anyone that doesn't know what it is, I've included … Continue reading Brockwell Parkrun – 06/09/2014
I decided that Thursday night would be the first time I officially represented my running club (Serpentine RC) at a road race. The Assembly League is made up of numerous London running clubs who get together during the summer months over a variety of distances, and tonight we'd be racing over 3 miles. I say 'racing', … Continue reading Assembly League – Beckenham 3 miles – 04/09/14
I've never really been a big fan of blogs. Most of the one's that my 'friends' on Facebook post links to are a load of rubbish and just make me constantly cringe. So I feel slightly hypocritical sitting here typing an opening post. However, I'm fairly sure no one is actually going to read most … Continue reading Surely this is a waste of time..
