Well, that went slightly better than planned. I stood at the start with 2 minutes remaining, waiting for the marshal to shout go, looking down at my watch thinking “come on, find the satellite”. 60 seconds to go, still no connection and I’m starting to panic. “10, 9, 8…. go!!”, still no connection, “shit!”.…… Continue reading Half Marathon Done.
Race day is fast approaching. Right now, as I sit here typing this, it’s 3 days away. I’m happy that I’ve prepared as best as I can over the past 6 weeks.

During today’s run at a particularly difficult section, I wondered why I still ran long distances. Why hadn’t I scaled back to running 10k’s…… Continue reading Motivation?
Which is not strictly speaking true. It actually began 2 weeks ago when I decided (for the 100th time) that enough was enough. If I had to look at that scale once more for it to tell me I’m still getting nowhere, I might just explode. Time for some adjustments. My exercise routine, as far as…… Continue reading It begins…….
