Day 6 – All roads lead to Lands End

*Day 1**Day 2**Day 3**Day 4**Day 5* Day 6 - Bude to Lands End 100 miles separating us from glory. Most people from this point would probably take the easy route. Straight down the A roads, avoiding the rugged coastline. Most people aren't morons like us. Apparently the direct route was only 90 miles, and it … Continue reading Day 6 – All roads lead to Lands End

Day 5 – The Queen Stage

*Day 1**Day 2**Day 3**Day 4* Day 5 - Hereford to Bude This was it then, the crux of the entire trip. Ever since we'd started the planning, this day was always looking huge.190 miles.Over 4,000m of climbing. Legs already absolutely trashed after 4 long, long days of riding. I honestly had severe reservations about the … Continue reading Day 5 – The Queen Stage

Day 4 – Who’s idea was this again?

*Day 1**Day 2**Day 3* Day 4 - Preston to Hereford As devastating as it was, we eventually had to leave Preston behind us, robbed of a night on the town due to local lockdown restrictions. I still haven't worked out what we'd have worn for the occasion, but it definitely would've smelled really, really bad. … Continue reading Day 4 – Who’s idea was this again?

JOGLE Day 3 – 200 miles or bust

*Day 1**Day 2* Day 3 - Edinburgh to Preston I think something that slightly blew my mind is that you can cycle 350 miles and still be nowhere near the Scottish border. It's a big place. A big, beautiful place. Shame about the Irn-Bru. Video - Day 3 breakfast Another restless sleep before another extremely … Continue reading JOGLE Day 3 – 200 miles or bust

JOGLE Day 2 – The ‘short’ day

*Day 1 - read here* Day 2 - Fort William to Edinburgh Readers worldwide will be hoping that a short day in the saddle means a short blog. I can't promise anything, but I'll try my best. JOGLE aficionados will note that going through Edinburgh is nowhere near the quickest or most direct route. Back … Continue reading JOGLE Day 2 – The ‘short’ day

JOGLE Day 1 – ‘I don’t think I can do this’

I receive a message from 'triathlon' Ross Harper in mid-August, where I am enjoying a holiday in the Scottish highlands with Katie and my family. 'Schofield is in for an unsupported LEJOG as a group of lads, loads of photos to create a photo journal.' Thinking this would probably just be a pipe dream that'll … Continue reading JOGLE Day 1 – ‘I don’t think I can do this’

Cape Peninsula Half Marathon – 16/02/20

Good morning/afternoon sports fans. Yet another slightly longer gap between posts. Not me being lazy this time, just no real races of note to report on, and nobody wants to hear 'I ran x miles on Monday followed by swimming x miles on Tuesday etc etc' - people only read to hear about me making … Continue reading Cape Peninsula Half Marathon – 16/02/20

Ucka trail/Frankfurt this weekend..

It's been 2 months since I last posted - an absolute barren spell in the history of this blog. Despite being contacted by both regional and national press, enquiring about my whereabouts and next moves, I've kept myself to myself and tried to sort out some issues closer to home. I've always set myself a … Continue reading Ucka trail/Frankfurt this weekend..

Kona – The aftermath

What do you mean this isn't the race report? Surely you can stop having fun on your holidays and get writing?! I want to make sure I let the dust settle and give a full account of what was a truly unbelievable day, so I'll be writing it over the next few days. I can … Continue reading Kona – The aftermath

Kona day 3 – The real race – Underpants run 2018

T-minus 2 days to go. It seems as if someone is pressing fast forward on a remote control of my life. I’m excited to race, but at the same time, I’m having such a good time, I just want to savour every moment we’ve got here. This morning was the real A-race of the week, … Continue reading Kona day 3 – The real race – Underpants run 2018
