Slow, slow, quick quick, slow

November 9th, 2010 Comments off

Not a terrible effort tonight, though it didn’t go as planned. I’ve got a bit bored with the run/walk combination of the RunKeeper “FitnessPlan” I’m following, so I thought I’d just go out for a normal run. As it is though, partly because I’m tired today, and partly because I was overambitious with my speed […]

Sunday Morning Detour

November 7th, 2010 Comments off

Inspired by Jose’s post about early morning running yesterday, I decided to drag myself out of bed and head out at around 7am this morning. Naturally I failed to do that, but I was underway by about 7:30 🙂 Unfortunately, my plan to head out along the Portway and up Bridge Valley Road to jog […]

A nice five miles through Leigh Woods today. It was another alternating walk/run according to the training plan thingy I’m following with RunKeeper, and that helped me up my running pace a bit. Well, apart from on the steeper hills 🙂 Today’s photo is from Leigh Woods. Leigh Woods is mostly National Trust‐owned, and a […]

Starting My Speed Training

October 20th, 2010 1 comment

I was in London at the weekend. I ate most of it. Well, it felt like it, anyway. My friend Kavey invited me along for the weekend to celebrate her recent birthday, and we went along to Chocolate Unwrapped, and also had a fab afternoon tea at the astoundingly stylish Bob Bob Ricard. That meant […]
