Back On the Road Again

April 12th, 2013 Comments off

Good news: I got back out for a little run last night. Even better news: mentally, at least, it was good. It wasn’t the struggle of the last two runs, so I reckon they may have felt bad just because I was going down with flu. It was just 4K down the Portway and back, […]

Losing Weight for the 10K

March 16th, 2013 Comments off

I don’t seem to be good at losing weight. Or rather, I’m not that bad at losing weight, but I’m also pretty good at gaining it, too. For the Bath Half, I was at the lightest weight I’ve been for any half-marathon I’ve ever done, I think; I am gradually reducing. But it’s very much […]

New Year’s Day

January 2nd, 2013 Comments off

I didn’t run yesterday, on New Year’s Day. But I did hopefully set the tone for the year by getting out for some decent exercise. I went out with the vague thought of walking around the harbourside, and ended up doing nearly 10K around my preferred Leigh Woods route. Hopefully that’s also started me off […]

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 […]

Balancing Act

I’ve got a problem at work. Well, okay, I have several problems at work, including the irritating fact I have to go there every day. But the problem I want to share today is the Problem of the Spare Desk. Since our team moved floors a couple of months ago, I’ve had to sit next […]

Getting Out There

March 27th, 2011 Comments off

Despite being robbed of an hour in bed by the clocks going forward, I still managed to get out and do a 7.5K out along the towpath, through Leigh Woods, and back to the Suspension Bridge this morning. It was a nice day for a jog; cool but not cold, and rain-free. It’s been a […]

Weighty Matters

March 21st, 2011 2 comments

  I’ve been taking it easy since the Bath Half, giving myself some recovery time, though I did manage to wander out for a 5K last Sunday, and a 5K today, too. But my thoughts recently have been more on eating than on exercise. Because, despite taking up jogging, my weight has been remarkably static. […]

Sunny Five

April 8th, 2010 Comments off

I didn’t hit the rainy streets last night, because I was knackered — didn’t sleep well on Tuesday night, for some reason. Still, today was a good alternative day for running, because it was gorgeously sunny. I took today’s picture on my warm-down after the run, with the sun still just above the horizon. Nice. […]

Well, that was a bit muddy. My shoes are soaked. As you can see from the RunKeeper log, I went through Leigh Woods today. I was going to take a different route from normal, but I got halfway through it and found the track so muddy that I actually had problems standing up on it, […]
