Two sessions – an update

Up early again tomorrow for a run… Well I haven’t run for quite a while now, but I did squeeze in a couple of gym workouts. On Thursday I managed a brief half an hour session in the gym and on Friday I managed an hour and ten minutes of solo spinning after work. It […]

Learning from the marathon

Coming up next what I have learned and what’s next… Hmm, what have I learned… I learned that I really do not like running in hot weather – I could attempt to overcome this challenge by running in more clothing to simulate hotter weather, call the marathon day a freak hot day or choose the […]

We finally settled on an event on the 9th of September […]
