Great North Run 2014

Posted: 26/06/2014 at 16:31

Just signed up for this. Not run a race for over a year due to on / off injury and health problems. Have kept up the running throughout but it has been sporadic. I hope this will be the event which gets me back where I want to be.

I also have a place in this event which I don't want. I got talked into entering without realising what it was and now I've bothered checking I don't want to do it. If you want to do it then you can have my place for free as they don't do refunds.

It's probably not actually a real word but isn't it just great.

You don't know the half of it. We have even more fascinating stuff going on here - try this one from my local rag:




My Last Run

Bristol 10K this morning. Not done much recently mostly down to a new job but also down to laziness. The 10K hurt a bit but I still clocked a respectable time. Perhaps with a little effort I might break the magic 50 minute barrier next time.

Disgraceful... but then the sort of idiots that set off bombs are sick individuals anyway.

It has made me think twice about going to the VLM this weekend.

On The Wagon For January

I fell off the wagon last night. I had two sneaky pints but only because beer's cheaper than soft drinks in my local (honest)

Still on the wagon?

The highest chance of me falling off the wagon is tonight. A village get together followed by a night in the pub - I can't see me buying any of their over priced soft drinks any more.

On The Wagon For January

I am still hungover from New Year's Eve! I have massively over-indulged in alcohol this Christmas and my half marathon training plan has gone completely to pot as a result. I will add my name to the list and hope that 9 weeks of sensible training will be enough.

My Last Run

9 miles this afternoon. Meant to do 5 but sometimes it just doesn't work out that way. Haven't been that far for a while and it hurt a bit towards the end. Got soaked to the skin too.
