Bright10 | 10 Mile Road Race 2016

Being injured is no fun. Especially when your wife hijacks your running club and steals your weekly running slots for herself. Having fallen off my bike in dramatic fashion at the Gauntlet Half Iron Distance Triathlon a few weeks before, I was on the way to recovery but still not in a fit state to race. So it was that ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Two Limping Parents

It has been rather a comic household of late as both Victoria and I have been limping pathetically around. Victoria’s leg continues to improve after her knee operation. We went to the Nuffield Hospital yesterday to see Mr Chauhan who said she can now remove her leg brace. She still walks with a limp but she can bend her knee ...

Brighton Half Marathon

Brighton Half Marathon

Ran my first Brighton Half Marathon yesterday. It was a beautiful day. It started out cold at 7:30 when we left Worthing but had warmed up significantly by the start. Poor Organisation Unfortunately, Elsa is unwell at the moment and Ellis was having a grumpy day, so I don’t think Victoria enjoyed herself very much. With hindsight it might have ...

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 ...

Great South Run

Yesterday I ran 10 miles in 1 hour 12 minutes and 38 seconds. It’s my fastest time for 10 miles and, although I was aiming for 1 hour 10 minutes, I am very happy. The killer was turning a corner at 8 miles and heading in to the wind for the final two. Usually when I run 10 miles along ...

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 ...

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 ...

Running and Ellis Smiles

I don’t know what’s come over me recently. I think I am worried about middle-age spread. I am running an awful lot lately. This month so far I have run around 50 miles. I am also getting faster. Yesterday I ran 5km in 21:36. Last month it was taking me 24 minutes to do the same distance. I have also ...

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 ...
