This isn’t going to be a long blog, I guess it was always going to go out with a whimper rather than a bang, and that’s how it really should be. It’s time to wrap things up, for the foreseeable future anyway, I guess that’s the problem when you have your running club as part … Continue reading So long, farewell – the end of the blog
Disclaimer: my blogs are written as my own therapy and reminders, always have been, so I make no apologies about them being from my perspective.

The equivalent of 1920 episodes … Continue reading Comes a time – When the hamstring sniper pulls the trigger
Disclaimer - the title is totally tongue in cheek, don't take it seriously, I certainly don't. It’s been a month again since my last musings and it’s been a really topsy turvy month with more ups and downs than a kangaroo wearing Alphaflies. I was into my marathon plan but nothing was gelling and nothing … Continue reading Confusion – the virtual champion of Scotland.
It’s been a month since my last blog, where I put my heart on my sleeve and let you, the running public, know that I wasn’t finding things easy but that I knew I wasn’t the only person feeling that way.

Disclaimers - This is my blog about me and how I am feeling. It's representative only of me and also I have to say I've never done weightlifting.

If you are after … Continue reading Weightlifting – We aren’t all PB smashing in lockdown.

I am not going to throw in my usual flippant comments and jokes here because sometimes it's not the right time. You could be unkind and say it never is the … Continue reading There is a light that never goes out.

Please note this is a one take written in 20 minutes at lunchtime report so sorry for any omissions or mistakes. We are living in funny times, unprecedented times for many, … Continue reading Going for Gold / Getting Better – Balloch to Clydebank Half Marathon 2020
Disclaimer: I know how I feel about running is different from how others feel and I am glad we are all different. I'll be me, you'll be you and we can all be happy. 🙂 Firstly thanks to all the kind comments on my previous blog on my Maranoiacoronavirusism and glad that the “Get it … Continue reading All Compasses Go Wild – Jack Crawford Springburn Cup 10k 2020
I wrote my last blog a month ago, on 3rd February. Since then I have run 227 Miles and most of my sessions have hit the mark, but oooft it has not been easy. The last marathon I did I had to train through the Beast from the East but this has been worse as … Continue reading It Might be Time – a new kind of maranoia
I’m 9 weeks into my 18 week plan. 9 weeks away from the Manchester marathon. 9 weeks away from my sub 3 attempt. Note I don’t say latest or first because this is it, my only actual attempt at it, probably my last opportunity before I hit 50. It was never an option before but … Continue reading Running – the mid marathon training doubts
