I went for another 6 miler this morning. It’s starting to get a bit chilly here now and i was getting blown all over the place with the wind. Apparently it’s a bit snowy in the East of the country. I hope you all freeze.

After the run and this weekends efforts i treated myself to a huge mug of Tea and a hot bath with the ducks.  Inspired by JogBlogs Pitta Bread making skills im off to make some homemade soup.

Running Nice.

Just got back from doing a 4 Miler. Really pleased with this run because i felt good all the way (easy to say that once i finish) There are 2 big hills in this route and i still managed to keep a continuous pace. 461ft of ascent is that a lot?

Just loving the running at the moment.

Work Running

I went for a quick 5 miler while i was at work this afternoon and because i work in the hilly bits it was a hard 5 miler. I don’t particuly enjoy running around here because there is just no let up. As soon as i leave that quarry it’s straight up. 

I haven’t done a race in ages so i entered the Nick Beer Llandudno 10km. the first half of this race is all up hill so todays run counts as hill training.

4 Miler at last.

I promise i will stop bleating on about being up most of the night from now on…………………………..i was up most of the night last night.

I managed to get these legs out and do a 4 miler this morning i feel like i have piled on a few pounds in the week i have done nothing in the form of exercercise. The run went well though.

Best of luck to JogBlog who is doing the 3 peaks challenge this weekend. I hope to see her at the top of Snowdon on Monday.

First Run

I managed to get out and do a quick 4 miler this afternoon.  Ive had very little sleep over the last few days but that’s to be expected but it still doesn’t change the shock of having to be awake every 2 or 3 hours. So we are now doing a sort of shift pattern so at least we can get a few hours sleep at a time.

The 4 miles went well though and all that hill work from the previous week has paid off.

Hill Work

It all sounds quite easy on paper. 10 reps of 200 meter uphill, jog down to recover. That was what i had a crack at doing this afternoon. After the 3rd rep i was blowing out of my arse it was just so hard. I think this obviously shows a lack of aerobic fitness and something i need to work on. I could only manage 8 and now that i have recovered i feel a bit let down i suppose its good to get a kick up the butt at this point and not just a few weeks before the Marathon when its to late to do something about it.

My wife still hasn’t popped our son out yet, 1 day overdue now.
