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 ...

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 ...
