Ten reasons to join a running club

Join a running Club

1. Train Harder Training for a marathon, or any race, is tough and if you want to get good, you need to train harder. Join a running club and you’ll be pushed out of your comfort zone. You’ll run faster, for longer, than you ever would have on your own. 2. Motivation When it’s cold and wet outside it’s easy ...

Two PBs in two days

It’s been my best running weekend ever, certainly in terms of personal bests. Two in two days. On Saturday I headed to Hove Park to take part in parkrun, as I do most Saturday mornings. If you haven’t heard of parkrun, head over to parkrun.org.uk. It’s a free 5k timed run for everyone. You register on the website, print out ...

Worthing 20 Mile Race

Worthing 20 Mile Race

Paris Marathon training continues. On Sunday 10th March I took part in the Worthing 20 Mile Race. Last year I ran in the same event and it was a bit of a disaster. It was the event which convinced me that my stomach doesn’t like gels. I had decided to take a gel every 5 miles, something I had never ...

Eastbourne Half Marathon 2013

Four weeks to go before my goal race, the Paris Marathon, and the training races are coming thick and fast. Worthing Lido 4m, Chichester 10k, Brighton Half Marathon and this weekend I completed the Eastbourne Half Marathon 2013. Last year, Victoria and the children came along but, because of swimming lessons, they weren’t able to come, leaving me transportless. Is ...

Chichester 10k

Yesterday was rather a crazy running day. After taking Elsa and Ellis to their swimming lesson early in the morning, we then drove to Chichester for my first Priory 10k race. My last 10k, in Brighton, took me 49 minutes because I was recovering from sciatica. I’m still not quite right as I think I have another injury in my ...

Brighton Brooks 10k

I am slowly recovering from injury. About 7 weeks ago I suffered a serious bout of Sciatica. The pain in my back quickly subsided, but I have had residual leg pain with numbness and tingling ever since. In the past 3 weeks I have found I am able to run again to some degree and today I completed the Brighton ...

Wedding Anniversary

November 11th is our wedding anniversary and also my birthday. We managed to palm the children off on Victoria’s mum for a night and spent it at the Thistle Hotel in Brighton. We spent most of our evening and morning in the pool and sauna! Very nice. The Thistle is right next to the registry office where we married last ...

The Great North Run

What a busy weekend. I foolishly agreed to photograph a wedding in Worthing on the Saturday before the Great North Run. I was still photographing the first dance at 8:30pm. I should really have stayed at home but at 9pm I set off on the 380 mile journey to South Shields. I don’t think I have ever driven so fast ...

Fitness level

My fitness level has really dropped off this past month following two bouts of illness. No sooner had I recovered from a cold which had lasted about three weeks, I succumbed to a virus and was full of headcold, headache and general malaise for another 5 days. I ran parkrun in Brighton two weeks ago in 20:30 which is a ...

Liverpool

Following our two days at Alton Towers, Hal, Jev, Elsa, Ellis and I made our way up to Liverpool to stay with my mum. Went to visit Uncle Derek and Aunty Pauline on Wednesday. I told Derek that I was to run the Paris Marathon on April 15th and he informed me that I have to beat 3 hours 26 ...

Eastbourne Half Marathon 2012

Managed to run a personal best at the Eastbourne Half Marathon 2012 on Sunday. There is a huge hill on the course up to Beachy Head but as slow as it is running up it’s equally as fast running back down. Completed the course in 1:36:05 in 172nd place. Had to leave Worthing at 8am to get Hallum and Jevan ...

Brighton 10k

This Sunday I ran the Brighton 10k in a time of 42:44. I had been hoping to run it in around 40 minutes but I made three important miscalculations! Firstly, I had for some reason decided that 10k is the same as 6 miles and I have been training at 6 mile distances for ages. Consequently the splits and times ...

Running Paris and Portsmouth

I am continuing with my running and fundraising. I have four races coming up over the next few months and raising money in two of them. The Great South Run will be on Channel 5 TV this coming Sunday. It’s a 10 mile run round Portsmouth and Southsea. I’m hoping to do it in 1:10:00, but we’ll see. I’m raising ...

Graduation and Bristol Half Marathon

What a good weekend. Saturday morning we set out for Portsmouth for my graduation ceremony. My mum, Victoria’s mum, my brother Simon, Ellis, Elsa, Victoria and me. The ceremony was held at The Guildhall. Wearing robes immediately gives one a sense of superiority! Had my photo taken after waiting in a looooong queue. Victoria tells me they all cheered as ...
