There’s always someone cooler than you – Going sub 17 at parkrun – Running Fitness Article

There’s always someone cooler than you – Going sub 17 at parkrun It genuinely surprises me that people still on occasion take 5 minutes out and read these ramblings. Oh I know it’s probably well past its sell by date, but it’s been a big part of me along with my running for more than a few years now so I can’t let it just stop just like that, but bear with me, it’ll wrap up soon, and the ending…

Roadrunner – the Strathaven 10k 2019 – Running Fitness Article

Roadrunner – the Strathaven 10k 2019 Are we there yet? Is the season finished yet? At least there’s a XC lull and it’s back to the roads. I’ve had my double peak this year and pretty much nailed what I tried to do but even though last week’s XC showed that the tank is about empty but I still have another couple of races to do before I fade back into oblivion again. Strathaven “Run with the wind” (aye right!) 10k.…

So here is the problem with this blogging thing that I got myself involved in years ago. You start it off when you are just starting…

Choosing a Spring Marathon – The Runner Beans – Running Fitness Article

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I want to run a BQ in 2020, but so far I’ve resisted signing up for any races. I mean, literally any which is so unlike me. All I have on my calendar so far in 2020 is the Brighton Half marathon. However, with November rapidly approaching, it’s time to lock in a goal race. I’m looking for something ideally in late April/May, with a fast, flat BQ sanctioned course. I thought…

Great South Run Race Recap – Fitness Article

This was my second year running the Great South Run and the weather did not disappoint either year; it isn’t always sunny at the seaside but it seems that somethings shining down on Portsmouth during the GSR! I didn’t leave enough time to get to the race this morning, meaning I had a bit of a last minute panic trying to find parking and ended up parking in a rather questionable spot. I hot footed it to the start line,…

Race Recap: Bridgehampton 5K – Cuckoolemon – Fitness Article

I woke up on race morning cool as a cucumber.  No race-day jitters for me.  I am not a detective, but I can easily attribute this to one clear fact: I wasn’t signed up to run a race. At 33 weeks pregnant, my already mediocre running talents were in near total hibernation. Registering for races was totally off my radar. But Matthew (my husband, remember him?) was signed up for the Bridgehampton Half and my pals Katy and Sarah were…

OK let’s cut to the chase. If you are one of those ones who has indeed found me irritating in the past then I warn you, this one will have you reaching for the markgallmac voodoo doll or for the keyboard to proclaim your indignation at my attitude under a catchy nom de plume. Oh aye, it is going to be that bad. Just remember my head is not your head and ignoring better judgement I will always go through…
