It’s been a while.

I haven't written anything since May 9th! Not that anyone would really notice, but I was shocked by the lapse. After a not so successful outing at the Liverpool Marathon last month, far from anything resembling writers block, I've found it hard to condense my thoughts. I've had plenty I wanted to say, and sat... Continue Reading →

Why I don’t mind being a drop out.

This week, I deferred and dropped out of two races. Any time this happens there is the inevitable day or so of my brain tutting and muttering 'quitter' at me. But, truth be told, I've done it so many times now, it doesn't affect me much anymore, here's why. Once you've graduated past the toe... Continue Reading →

About yesterday…

On my run this morning, I was pumped, like eye of the tiger, chariots of fire pumped. It took all my effort to hold back from gunning the entire way, it's great when this happens. There is one reason for this...yesterday was the Boston Marathon, and it was fucking incredible. I don't want this to... Continue Reading →

Slowly, but surely…

After two failed attempts to get things moving, this week the tide seems to have turned. On Monday I managed to get round 10km with almost no pain. It's amazing how much you learn about the signals your body is sending through constant activity. I'm now fairly confident in my ability to distinguish between the... Continue Reading →

The way she goes.

After my hilarious Instagram post on Saturday, in which I detailed my lack of recovery and general maintenance, I have an injury.

Things what I did 2.0

As I mentioned before, times and pbs hold as much significance as you choose to give them. As I also said, I personally like knowing what people have run when I read their blogs. With that in mind, my current personal bests. 5k: 17:55 10k: 37:55 Half Marathon: 1:25:18 Marathon: 2:57:32 53 Miles: 10:49 100km:... Continue Reading →

The sub 3 paradox 2.0

I decided to split this post in two, as I felt I was on the verge of waffling. I'm realising recently that I spent so much time pursuing sub 3, and until writing this post, almost zero reflecting on the achievement and what it meant. In fact the race and day itself is not one... Continue Reading →
