Training: Week six

What a week. Almost seems to have lasted more than a week for some reason. Maybe because I was away last weekend in Wales, then straight to London for 3 days and then the rest of the week is just a blur of hardly being at home. Out and about pretty much the entire time.... Continue Reading →

Training: Week Five

Hoop-la. Lalalalalala. La-la-la. Lololola. That's how my brain is feeling right now. Merrily singing little tunes to block everything else out. This is not because of the training, oh no. That bit is [kind of] the easy bit. Well, apart from it taking up time, that's all. This week I've just ended up with rather... Continue Reading →

Training: Week Four

Week Four. That's a month. A MONTH HAS GONE BY. Crappity crap crap crap. Still don't feel like I'm doing much proper 'training' (still sometimes less than what I used to do) and this week I've not been very well so I've not managed to do everything in the right order that I should have done. Feeling... Continue Reading →

Training: Week Three

I'm getting into the groove of this now. The groove of trying to fit training around other commitments, or commitments around the training. The running is not so bad as that's pretty easy to fit around most things as I can always get up really early, fit a quick one in at lunchtime or run later... Continue Reading →

Training: Week Two

Woah! Week two down already. A week of trying to fit everything in, trying to make sure I have been food shopping, get decent sleep, have visitors, do stuff for fun and not drink too much. Unsurprisingly, I didn't manage all of it. Here’s what week two should have consisted of: BMF x 3 Running... Continue Reading →

Training: Week One

And so it begins. Yes. Training has officially STARTED. Eek. I'm still not quite taking it as seriously as I should be perhaps. Mark 'the mountain goat' from BMF is helping me with a training plan, and these first few weeks are all about building a good foundation of a bit of running and some... Continue Reading →

Operation Desert Fun: start prep

So I've signed up for this desert ultramarathon thing. I've stopped feeling physically sick (yes, I actually did for about two days). I've got over an initial wobble after a few people told me I probably couldn't do it (I've chosen to ignore that). Now what? Probably should do some prep. And training. Yes, that's...

It all starts with a click

It's oh-so-easy to do stuff on the internet. A couple of clicks and before you know it you've bought a 100 pack of tennis balls, £40 of shampoo or entry to a desert ultramarathon. The latter is me this week. I've signed up for the Wadi Rum Ultra in Jordan. This October I will be... Continue Reading →
