The Viper 15 Mile Trail

This local trail race was reasonably low key and was brought to my attention by friend Craig Vernon of Mid Essex Casuals. Initially I only thought about entering and didn't enter straight away as I wanted to see how my week panned out prior to the event. The race fell on Bank Holiday Monday, the... Continue Reading →

Ipswich Twilight 5k

Following on from the Mudnificent Seven and Tour de Ford weekend, it was back to marathon training on the Monday.  The week started well as I fitted in two recovery runs, both at a leisurely pace aiding my recovery whilst getting some miles in. With the 5k on the horizon I decided to get my... Continue Reading →

Mudnificient 7 & Tour De Ford

Mudnificent 7, My first OCR as part of Team Muddy Kit. I was really looking forward to the race but also felt a little nervous as it would be my first obstacle race where someone other than myself might take an interest in where I finished. With just 8 weeks to go until Chicago I... Continue Reading →

Training Week 31/07/17

Training Week 31/07/17 - 06/08/17 Monday (31/07/2017) 4.5 miles - 33:03 My dad's 55th birthday meant time would be restricted in the evening but I wanted to get in at least a short recovery run after Sunday's bike ride. I decided an easy run before work would be the best option, so a quick run... Continue Reading →

Prudential Ride London 46

After four unsuccessful Ride London 100 ballot entries I thought I would try my luck at the baby brother of the main event. The 46 mile cycle event which follows similar routes around the heart of the capital but is aimed at more novice riders. This was perfect for me, after just 6 training rides... Continue Reading →

AJ Bell London Triathlon

A race that I entered all the way back in 2015 was bound to come around at some point and this weekend it was finally time to stop the excuses and bite the bullet. To be honest going into a race with no swim training and minimal biking is pretty criminal in my eyes but... Continue Reading →

Stort 10 2017

Friday Night 5 Following the Hoohaah 10k race win I had some relatively easy training days due to both fatigue and weather conditions. I couldn't help but include a run back around the forest where I had raced a few days previously. Enjoying the scenery on a beautiful evening without worrying about pace or distance...

Spitfire Scramble 24 hour

The Spitfire Scramble is a 24-hour multi-terrain relay or solo race. The event allows you run in teams of two to eight runners or if your really mad, solo. The race is extremely testing both mentally and physically and requires great team work and a strong mindset. Each team must have one runner on the course... Continue Reading →

Ridley Round and Hoohaah 10k

Following St Alban's half I probably should have had a rest, but I decided to attend Monday night track for GFDR - being not one to punish myself if I can help it I decided to skip the easy three miler beforehand and just do the track session - so you could say I did... Continue Reading →
