Things are coming along nicely...

Posted on July 23, 2013 at 5:41am 1 Comment

After finally getting to a continuous 5k things are now moving along nicely and gradually increasing mileage, with the introduction of hill sprints coming up in the next week.

I have just had an amazing two weeks holiday near to St David’s in Pembrokeshire and my training runs along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path onto St David’s head were just awesome even if really hot. The best one was the five miler where the mist had drifted off the sea onto the path obscuring visibility on St…


An introduction to fell running...

So, I am now up to a 7 minute run/1 minute walk for 40 minutes, and moving on to 9 minutes run/1 minute walk for 40 minutes tomorrow. The running is moving forward and I am now actually really enjoying it. Especially the trail runs across The Chase, which are absolutely wonderful. I can't believe that people run with earphones in, when the sound of nature is all around them. Can't wait until I am in the mountains.

I am also the proud owner a pair of off-road running shoes, a running…
