Chunky Virtual Runner dot com?

Okay, I admit that I haven’t been following my training plan very well.  In fact, I’m not really following a plan but I am trying to make sure my long runs increase gradually each week. I’m trying to do two quality runs during the week (tempo and intervals) with a long run each Sunday.  Unfortunately […]

Puffy Knees

Another Sunday and another long run.  This one had me cover over 18kms, but at a slow pace of just over 6min per km.  My legs were very tired at the end of this one and my knees felt very puffy.  I’ve been on the paracetemol and ibuprofen since the run… One thing I need […]

Slow Train to Painville

Allllllllll aboard! So far so good with the running; and I mean that sincerely.  Especially since I’ve been sick with a cold off and on since around Christmas time.  In fact, I’m only now just getting over my most recent one which was especially nasty. Last Sunday I did a long run of over 16km […]

Mortimer 10k, Long Run & Puffy Knees

Nice title eh?  I think one of the hardest things is trying to think of a damn title for each blog post.  It can be a bit of a challenge! The Mortimer 10k is put on by my running club the Reading Roadrunners.  I’m sorry I forgot to mention it (it was in Sept) but […]

Long Run with Garfield the Garmin

I got to use my Garmin today on my long run around dinton pastures.  It has my pace as much slower than the Nike+ records it and I suppose that’s good.  It will help me to push myself a bit harder in training! Overall it felt like an okay run; however I did suffer from […]
