Going north (and uphill)

The fun never stops… I’m back in the north! This means I can finally do some hill training – as you may remember it was hills that derailed me during my marathon. Also I need to practice hills so I’m ready for the training camp in the peak district in about two weeks. On Saturday […]

Northward bound

There may be more running tomorrow morning if my legs can take it… So I had a few days off. Initially on Monday and Tuesday my legs were a bit stiff from the near-marathon I ran on Sunday. As time progressed I realised I was mildly ill, so I took it easy rather than risk […]

The organiser was […]

More to come… I took both Sunday and Monday off – I was tempted to go to a spinning class Monday evening but I wasn’t quite feeling up for it, oh and I had work to do of course… Today I fit in a solo spin to an old soundtrack, but after it ended I […]
