One Year Ago Today

July 22nd, 2010 1 comment

Today’s jog took me out along the Portway, mostly because the weather has been so utterly crazy in Bristol today that I figured I’d stick to a route where there were likely no puddles and I was fairly unlikely to be struck by lightning. We had the most enormous thunderclap I’ve heard in my life […]

Getting Out There

July 20th, 2010 3 comments

I’m going to try to get out twice on weekdays this week, because it’s been ages since I’ve done that. I seem to have degenerated into a one-midweek, once-at-the-weekend pattern, mostly since the Bristol 10K. I think I need to start building the average miles up a bit again, and get out when I can. […]

Sore Feet

My feet seem to be a bit achey after running recently. It suddenly occurred to me that, even though it only seems like a few weeks ago that I bought a new pair of shoes, it might actually have been rather longer. And that’s where a blog comes in handy. I first bought proper running […]

Skipping A Beat

Well, I’ve been a bit rubbish this week. No mid-week run. Mostly that was because I was busy doing strange things like filming advice on how to take photos of lightning with a BBC weatherman. That, and the serious weather we have in fact had this week, albeit sadly lacking the lightning, meant I didn’t […]

Woodland Jog

It was, again, really very sunny and warm today. I didn’t get up early enough to avoid it, so instead of heading for the Downs like usual, I went for a little jog around Leigh Woods, which has a lot more shade, instead. I didn’t take it too seriously, stopping off in a few different […]

Back on the Road

Back to the A4 Portway for a nice simple 5K this evening. It was warm and close, and the wide open feel of the road felt like a better antidote than the pleasant, yet sometimes-claustrophobic towpath. Just a token effort, really, my first since Thursday’s 21km epic, and I took it slowly. No problems, though. […]

A Teensy Little Jog

July 1st, 2010 Comments off

I had a day off work. It looked like a nice morning for a little jog. So, I went out for a little jog. Which turned into a longer jog. Which turned into a bit of an epic. I did set out with the idea of going for a longish run. I set off with […]
