Back in Action

Back in Action Training is going well again.  I’ve found out a lot recently about training techniques and I feel that this time I should make a lot more improvements than before and hopefully avoid any over-training. I’ve also decided that pre-flu, I was getting more than a little obsessed with training and need to have […]

Week 7 Update (18.2.2013)

What a terrible week of training that was! Did a Wednesday run with Rob and a little run on Thursday but still completely pathetic as far as training goes. This week however, it’s back on schedule for the first race in April – The Subisomas.  The race is just over 13 km and 1200 metres […]

Week 6 Update (13.2.2013)

Training Progress After going for an ECG on Monday and getting the expected all clear, I’m looking forward to getting going again with my training.  I think the whole thing was a case of too much too soon after having been ill, maxing out my heart rate and then me thinking I was going to […]

Week 3 Update (28.1.2013)

Went for my first run yesterday, after a week of being completely wiped out by the flu. It was  hard! Especially with my lungs and sinuses being full of gunk. I do feel a lot better today though and I think I’m going restart my 5 week training plan and give it another go from […]

I stupidly still went out for the traditional beers after work […]

Should I Run or Not?
Should I Run or Not?

Should you run when you are ill? Woke up this morning feeling a bit rough and nearly decided to call in sick.  After 15 minutes extra time in bed, I finally managed to drag myself into the shower and then downstairs for breakfast and a strong black coffee.  By the time I needed to leave, […]

Kitty Litter in My Shoes!
Kitty Litter in My Shoes!

You might think this sounds like a a sure fire method for getting Roci, our cat, to crap in my shoes but it’s actually the best method I’ve found for drying my soaked trail shoes. It’s pure genius – silica kitty litter is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, gets rid of nasty smells and due to it’s ability […]
