2nd Time Lucky?

Well, I think I’ve narrowed down when and where my next marathon “attempt” will be.  Frankly, this event wasn’t my first choice for a second attempt but there aren’t that many local-ish marathons before the end of the year. http://www.farnhampilgrim.org.uk/ The event’s route is described as “mixed and mainly off-road”… great.  However, I figure that […]

Full of Crap

I didn’t do the marathon.  I know, I know… I put in all that training! Everything was going well and we flew to Canada as planned.  However, the second or third day there I started sneezing a lot and I thought it was just allergies (my sisters have pets).  Nope.  Full blown cold kicked in […]

Juneathon – Day 4 (Getting Better)

I woke up this morning hoping to feel well enough to attempt a slow easy run for a mile or two but unfortunately my lungs felt like they were on fire.  I also had a bit of a coughing fit and coughed up loads of things (phlegm, car keys, phlegm, kitchen sink and more phlegm) […]

Not running at the moment

My left ankle still feels odd.  I can’t really describe the injury but I’ll try!  When I walk it feels like there is a sharpish type pain / click of tendon / bone on bone (delete as appropriate) on the outside of my foot just under the protruding ankle bone.  I only feel it when […]
