  1. RUN
    good 4 mi 00:39 09:47 pace

    Slowish rest day run.

  2. RUN
    good Cycle Track Loop 5 mi 00:49 09:45 pace

    Just a nice slow run along the cycle-track. First back to back runs in a while and I feel really great. I tried having an ice-bath after yesterday's longer run, and wore compression gear after... read more

  3. RUN
    great River Recovery Run 3.2 mi 00:30 09:19 pace

    Just a slowish recovery run as I've been stuck inside nearly all day. I ran without a watch and was aiming for around 9.30 pace, so I wasn't too far out. Feeling very good today, managed ... read more

  4. RUN
    good South West Coast Path 5.5 mi 01:01 11:01 pace

    Went for a run along the South West Coast Path, after a 5 miles bike ride. My legs were already aching slightly after the ride, but running next to the beach is always inspiring. Had to walk a few ... read more

  5. RUN
    Reading Half 13.1 mi 02:08 09:46 pace

    So after very little training, I completed my first race and my first half marathon. The positives; I've raised nearly £400 for charity, and I completed probably the longest run of my life wit... read more

      Thanks Adam. I'd hardly trained at all since Chrismtas, and this was the first race (outside of school) that I've ever competed in. Probably wasn't the greatest idea, but was still very enjoyable regardless. Really whetted my appetite for more races now, though. Not sure whether to go for another half or train for the full 26.2 in late Autumn/early Spring.

      If your going to go for the full marathon then there should be plenty of time to try a couple more half's in the lead up. I have a marathon planned in October and have a few half's to race before then.

      Yeah, I'm beginning to lead towards that way of thinking now, too. I'd probably do an Autumn half, Spring half and then Spring/Summer marathon. Logistically that's the best way, as I should be graduated by then (fingers crossed), so more time to make sure my diet/training etc. is better.

      Nice Job:

      Great half Jack. Great work raising money! Once you get upto the half distance it's as much about tactics and pacing as it is fitness. It all comes with practice and you never stop learning!

  6. RUN
    good Hill Work 3 mi 00:30 10:03 pace

    Did some very challenging hill work. Living in Cornwall, this is basically unavoidable. Probably shouldn't have tried to tackle a 16% gradient for nearly a mile though. My achilles are still a... read more

  7. RUN
    alright 3 mi 00:28 09:20 pace

    Slowish kind of recovery run. Didn't feel great.

  8. Hi everyone, as you probably already know, I'm running the Reading Half-Marathon in March, in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, who helped my family when my grandad sadly pass... read more

  9. RUN
    good 4 mi 00:37 09:20 pace

    Sorry for the hiatus - I have been running. I've just finished my first proper essays of my degree, and was frustratingly close to a first. I've been training for the half-marathon, in 6 ... read more

      Great to see you back. I remember how demanding uni was, feels like a long time ago now (I'm 28)! Nice run - good luck with the half.

      Thanks Adam! It really is; it seems the only times I'm craving a run are the same time an essay is due, or research needed etc. Been getting in the runs, but I've started a written diary which I've found much easier and has negated the need for updating this regularly. Thanks, I've started proper training late, but hopefully I'll scrape through!

  10. RUN
    great 4.3 mi 00:44 10:11 pace

    Slow recovery run up some gentle hills. Feeling pretty good actually, nice and steady pace at around 10.30 p/m and then picked up for the end as legs felt good. Relatively tight hamstrings to begin... read more

  11. RUN
    good 6.55 mi 01:00 09:09 pace

    My first "long" run in a long while. I decided to go by the coast because it's nice and scenic, but failed to take into account the severity of the hills. Basically all uphill for 4 ... read more

  12. RUN
    good 3.1 mi 00:28 08:52 pace

    Went out with the intention of doing 40 minutes at an easy pace, at 20 minutes I remembered I would miss a meeting with my friends. Had to cut it short and go for the 5k, wish I had remembered earl... read more

  13. MAJOR NEWS: I've just been accepted to run the Reading half-marathon in March (for Macmillan Cancer Support). Hopefully that will give me some well needed motivation to get out on the road no ... read more

  14. RUN
    great 4 mi 00:41 10:15 pace

    Slow recovery run today. Didn't look at the watch, just tried to practice pacing over the 4 mile route near university. I was aiming for a steady 10.30/45, but I'm relatively happy with m... read more

  15. RUN
    good 3.1 mi 00:29 09:11 pace

    I really need to update this more. It's been a hectic few months, and I'm back at university in the South West! I'm feeling great at the moment, I've managed a successful trial ... read more

    good 26 mi 01:53 13.8mph pace

    How do people run marathons in around 2 hours? Going that far (admittedly up some very steep hills) has made me realise just how hard a marathon at any pace would be. Wow.
