Running on a Cliff Edge

March 28th, 2010 1 comment

Today was an okay run. I wasn’t very focused — losing an hour in the transition to British Summer Time can do that to a person; I still haven’t even changed all my clocks, so I’m living with one foot in the past — but that was okay. Sometimes being unfocused means your run is […]

Backdated Run

March 25th, 2010 Comments off

Just a quick backdated entry: I did go for a run this week; just the usual 5K, but I waited until Thursday because I was knackered on Wednesday. And then I went straight to Bristwestival, the tonguetwistingly-named Bristol Twitter festival, so I didn’t have time to blog…

My hip feels fine, and I didn’t feel totally knackered from the get-go like I did last time, either. Which is all good. Even better, there were actually some […]

The Joy of Shoes

So, picked up my new shoes on Friday — Mizuno Wave Inspire 6es — and walked lots in them yesterday to make sure they felt all right, and that nothing was rubbing. And they were fine, so today I went out into the gorgeous Spring sunshine and did a simple 5‑and-a-bit‑K, just around half the […]
