Taking My Time

May 11th, 2014 Comments off

I’ve taken some time off from running. About a year, in fact. I’m not sure why, really. I just didn’t really feel like it for a while. And it is, after all, voluntary. But recently I started to feel the urge again, and last month I went out for a few training runs. In fact, […]

Bristol 10K 2013

May 13th, 2013 Comments off

Back on the 5th of May, I ran the Bristol 10K. And then had a really busy week where I was out of the house a lot, so I’m afraid this race report is a little late. Sorry! This year’s 10K was a mixed bag for me. It was my slowest ever 10K race (though […]

Bath Half Marathon 2013

March 4th, 2013 Comments off

I wasn’t as worried about the Bath Half this year as I was last year. Last year I hadn’t done enough distance training. This year I managed a 15K including some fairly steep hills a week and a bit before the Half, so I reckoned I was ready. I also woke up yesterday morning having […]

Bristol Half Marathon 2012

October 1st, 2012 1 comment

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? A few weeks ago, I went out for another long training run, and it was horrible. I was hoping to head somewhere near a half-marathon distance. Instead I did a horrible, slogging, slow 10K, and hated every minute of it. I’m not entirely sure why — I may have […]

Bristol 10K 2012

May 20th, 2012 Comments off

Today I ran the Bristol 10K, mostly with my friend (and erstwhile boss) Mike. Mike had originally planned to partner up with a friend who’s a fair bit faster than me, but she got a hip injury at the last minute, unfortunately. So, I rebelliously brought my green-numbered self into the red lane with Mike […]

Bath Half Marathon 2012

March 15th, 2012 1 comment

I approached this year’s Bath Half Marathon with more than a little trepidation, and rightly so, it turned out. Since the Bristol Half, I just haven’t trained enough. Partly that’s due to winter, and partly because my routine’s been knocked off-kilter by quitting my day job. I also put on some weight over the last […]

Race Day: Bristol Half Marathon 2011

September 11th, 2011 1 comment

Yup! Another day, another medal. I’m getting quite a collection now! I enjoyed the Bristol Half Marathon on Sunday, despite having had some reservations about my weight and the amount of training I’d been doing. I didn’t think I stood much chance of beating my personal best from the Bath Half. At least I arrived […]

Bristol 10K 2011

May 16th, 2011 Comments off

The Bristol 10K was my first race, this time last year. It’s a good, fun race, with a whole lot of people — 9,000 finished this year — and it’s right on my doorstep. It only takes me twenty minutes to get to the start line, and then we run right back past my flat […]

Bath Half Marathon 2011

Well, that was fun! Okay, if I’m being entirely honest, the first eight or nine miles were fun, and it was more of a slog after that, but still! It was a nice day for running. It was pretty chilly first thing, and especially hanging around in the runners’ village and the start pens, but […]

Bristol Half Marathon 2010

September 5th, 2010 1 comment

Today’s half marathon — my first — went pretty well all round. I was a bit worried by the amount of rain I could hear before I set out, but it turned into occasional drizzle for the race, which is perfect jogging weather, really — no need to worry about overheating. I kept jogging from […]
