Ach I know, don't judge me, I am supposed to be finished with all this blogging rubbish and here I am, two in just over a week. Racing is back though, though thankfully for me the real speedsters in the M50 category don't seem to know that yet, so lets all shhhhhh and not wake … Continue reading The Word I was Looking For – Blast 5k 30/5/2021
I raced. I did. For the first time since March 2020 I pinned a number onto my vest and ran a race. Not quite straight but it was a good attempt. My first race as a V50 since I managed to get old in the duration. The last time it was the claret and amber … Continue reading A Million Miles – Bella Invitational and Monument Mile 2021
I have not trained with my club since November because I live in North Lanarkshire but my club is in South Lanarkshire. I actually work in South Lanarkshire so spend more time there than I do in the North but that is irrelevant, I am still not allowed to go to my club. It’s been … Continue reading Wait in the dark – running for all?
Disclaimer: This blog is relevant to running and not to any other areas of lockdown. I certainly don’t have the answers to the running problems so don’t get me involved in anything else. Except maybe spreadsheets, I like them. I know, I’m writing again. Shut down my internet and call the running polis!! It was … Continue reading Still. Another blog on lockdown.
Note: Don't worry still not intending to resurrect the log for my training and racing purposes but if I am sent any items that I deem worthy of a review then I will still stick them up here. I do from time to time get contacted by companies, but will only try out the product … Continue reading Review of Freetrain VR
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. It’s been almost 6 weeks since my last blog, 40 days, a long time and it has recently felt like longer. 40 days, 960 hours. 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. I am honest about it, it took me a while to press publish on … Continue reading The Sound of Drums – there’s hope on the horizon
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. I'm the one that even sand kicks in the face on the beach. I've the strength of a watered down glass of Vimto. If you are after … Continue reading Weightlifting – We aren’t all PB smashing in lockdown.
