So far my resolutions for this year are not going too well. A few I'm not that worried about as it's early days, but number one on the list, to lose weight and keep going with the healthy living stuff, has not gone so well. Since Christmas my jogging has really fallen away, and while … Continue reading Rerun
Today marks exactly one year since I started jogging. It was after a fortnight of extreme gluttony that I finally pulled on my trainers, listened to the first Couch to 5k and went for the first run. It turned out to be the best way of doing it, with the podcasts slowly easing me into … Continue reading Ranniversary
So, I realize I've made fitness manifestos before, and fallen short, but after a poor showing in the last couple of months I'm eager to get back into my groove. I've rediscovered my love of running and over the last fortnight or so I've managed to stick to running roughly every other day. I'm not … Continue reading Jocktober
So earlier this week I wrote of my return to running after a period of laziness, and knowing I'm away next week I threw myself back into the running. Wednesday's run had been rough, but it had reignited my passion for it and I managed to run for the next three consecutive days (I only … Continue reading Run of form
Its been almost a month since I last blogged about running (see here) and there's been a reason for that, Lazy Chris seized power, for the embodiment of my slothfulness he's actually quite quick off the mark. I just want to clear up that the 8th of August wasn't the last time I ran, I … Continue reading Back on the streets
Today I ran my 100th run with my Nike sensor thingy, I was pretty chuffed about this especially as it also marked the run that I reached the 600k mark (around 372 miles), which is pretty cool as it means I have an average of 6km a run, which makes sense as at the start … Continue reading Milestones and Nipples.
Back when I was a student there was a drinking game that my friends and I would play called the "hour of power", the rules of which were very simple- Every player has a shot glass Every player gets a pint (beer or cider) The players pour a shot of their beverage and drink it. … Continue reading Hour of Power: Boozing and Running.
It had been a week since my last run when I pulled on my trainers this morning. In all fairness to myself, most of this wasn't due to my old enemy Lazy Chris triumphing, and down to me being away, busy or ill. I'd meant to run on Monday but was a little bushed after … Continue reading Hard Jog
Today I went for my 6th run of July, meaning that I'm on course to do my target of 15 runs this month. I've mentioned before that I have no idea when I set off if a run is going to be a good one and this was definitely the case today. I'd set off … Continue reading Clearly I’ve got some dedication
Its weird how some days my runs are a real struggle and other times I fly through the 55 minutes. I have no idea what effects them, whether its down to some outside thing or if its just mental. Today was one of the good ones, I felt good as soon as I got going. … Continue reading Jogs Like Jagger
