Training Update (27.1.2015) Last week’s training went really well. I felt really good running twice a day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and apart from a little bit of tightness in my calves on Thursday, which had disappeared by Friday, no aches at all! Sunday Long Run The planned 20 kilometre long-run, with Rob and […]
This is a GPX track of the official (I think) route for the 27 Kangas Mountain. Why they call it the 27 Kangas Mountain, when it’s more like 30 kilometres, I don’t know. Must have changed the route over the years.
Some Youtube videos to whet the appetite…
This week’s 15 km long-run was hard and I’m suffering today. Possibly I might have over estimated my fitness. That said it was a great run. Flops the faithful hound loved it when we got up into the snow. [Show as slideshow] My phone kept on restarting for some reason. This means I’ve only got the […]
Fuensanta10 Km Training Run Just got back from the first training run of the year, which was just slightly under, the planned 10 kilometres. The Foces del Rio Pendon footpath is still one of my favourites with some good steep climbs and a fairly technical decent. Felt very slow and overweight on the hills but apart […]

The 27 Kangas Mountain Trail Run In an attempt to kick-start my trail and mountain running year, I’ve just signed up for this race on the 28th February, 2015. This means I’ve got 52 days or 7 weeks 3 days to get ready. Should be enough I think.
Foces del Rio Pendon A beautiful 8km run from Fuensanta in Asturias. The Route The Ruta PR 45 (Pequeño Recorrido or Short Distance Route) starts and ends in Fuensanta next to the mineral water bottling plant of the same name. From there, the steep slog up to the top starts immediately and doesn’t stop until the beginning of the descent near Mayáu […]
Bitten by the Surfing Bug What started as a bit of cross-training for running, seems to be turning into a bit of an obsession. I’ve been going at least 3 times a week and I’m loving every minute of it. I’m also watching a load of surfing videos and constantly reading surf magazine and books. […]
