Two more PBs…not

It’s been another busy running week, much to my wife’s chagrin and mine to a degree. I have run three races and have ended with a sense of mild disappointment! On Wednesday 5th June I ran my first Worthing 10k. Having beaten my PB by some 3 minutes in the Bognor 10k I wanted to knock a few more seconds ...

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 ...

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 ...

Triathlon Day

Yesterday by chance I was able to complete all three Triathlon disciplines in one day. First thing Saturday morning I competed in my usual Brighton and Hove parkrun. Last week I beat my PB by 10 seconds and finished the 5k in 19:25. This week I missed it by 2 seconds coming in at 19:27. Still, I don’t feel too ...

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 ...

Disappointing 20 Miles

Completed a very disappointing first Worthing 20 mile race on Sunday (Mothers Day). Planned to run in 2:40:00 to beat my PB by 3 minutes. However, for some reason, I decided I needed more energy gels than I have ever used before. Along with the energy drinks being handed out as well, I actually overdosed on the stuff and rather ...

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 ...

16 Miles today

I am now ramping up the training for upcoming races. I ran 15 miles 8 days ago and 16 miles this morning and feel pretty good. That’s along with my regular 5k parkrun race every Saturday. There was a heavy head wind along Worthing seafront which slowed me a little, not that I was trying to run fast. Did 16 ...

Training in the Cold

Bloody hell it’s cold out there. I really had to motivate myself yesterday to get out and run. Currently I am in training for the Brighton Half Marathon in February, the Sport Relief Mile in March (I think) and the Paris Marathon in April. In addition to that I continue to try and improve my parkrun PB. I have managed ...

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 ...

Under 20 minutes for 5k

Finally managed to break 20 minutes for 5k round Hove park, Brighton at parkrun. It’s a good start to the weekend. Took Elsa swimming and then we have friends over this afternoon. Tomorrow is the Great South Run in Portsmouth. If I can just keep up the pace I’ll hope to get round in just over 1 hour 10 minutes. ...

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 ...

Another great week with Hal and Jev

Apart from missing Victoria and the children more and more as the weeks have progressed, I have had a fantastic time with Hallum and Jevan. After a week in Liverpool I had a few days on my own at home, which I used to tidy. We have new sofas in the lounge which arrived on Wednesday morning (24/08/11), so the ...

Looking for a new job

It’s July. Victoria is on maternity leave looking after Ellis and Elsa. I am still working just two days a week at Boots in Hove. However, I am about to get a degree and I’ve decided to try and get a graduate job…whatever that is. I am registering with various recruitment agencies and scouring The Guardian for jobs. I have ...

Royal Wedding and running

The wedding of William and Kate took place a couple of weeks ago. I had to work but there was a street party on our road. Victoria decided not to attend once she eyed up the other party goers. She thought we wouldn’t fit in and I agreed once I arrived home. Bit too chavvy for us. So that happened ...
