  1. RUN
    Oxford parkrun (winter course) 3.13 mi

    Another setback this week, very frustrating. Completed first mile and felt right calf go "pop", following which I had to walk for 1/4 mile. Probably should have abandoned, but my 10-in-10... read more

  2. RUN
    alright Headington 5k (one climb) 3.06 mi 00:28 09:12 pace

    OK, it's time to start running again during the week. Today was a lunchtime 5k with the final 1km up a long, slow climb. I didn't manage to nail it in one (had to walk 100m about halfway ... read more

  3. RUN
    good Oxford parkrun (winter course) 3.13 mi 00:29 09:07 pace

    Back to my current "normal" after last week's setback. Focused on slower starting pace first mile and managed to maintain slow breathing cadence (3/3) for first two miles. Then delib... read more

  4. RUN
    blah Oxford parkrun (winter course) 3.13 mi 00:31 09:52 pace

    Very tough today. Started to feel everything fall apart at mile 2, so backed off and walked for 1/4 mile. Got back into a slower pace to finish up.

  5. RUN
    alright Oxford parkrun (winter course) 3.13 mi 00:29 09:13 pace

    After twisting my back last Sunday and spending 4 days unable to move, I was not too sure about even trying parkrun this week. So I took it slow, and as it turned out, managed to put in a steady pe... read more

  6. RUN
    good Oxford parkrun 3.12 mi 00:28 09:04 pace

    Slowly getting everything back under control. Was aiming for sub-28 minutes but the last climb knocked me back a little. Had planned on negative splits but ran the first 2k too fast. Noticeable imp... read more

  7. RUN
    good Oxford parkrun 3.12 mi 00:29 09:16 pace

    Much more regular pace this time around. No stops required. Slightly slower than previous week but felt more in control.

  8. RUN
    alright Oxford parkrun 3.12 mi 00:29 09:11 pace

    Quite an improvement since my last run 4 weeks ago. It took me a couple of kms to settle into a sustainable rhythm, but I was able to maintain the same pace all the way to the end.

  9. RUN
    alright Oxford parkrun 3.12 mi 00:31 10:03 pace

    First time back at parkrun since 2012. Hard to believe it's been that long. Was aiming for 10-min per mile pace but had to walk a couple of hundred yards, so not too bad, all things considered... read more

  10. RUN
    alright 1.81 mi 00:18 10:08 pace

    Trying (again) to dust the legs off and get back into running. Short one today but it put me on my backside.

  11. RUN
    tired St Edward's 2-mile loop 2.35 mi 00:23 09:44 pace

    First run in a very long time. Easing back into it with 20lbs to lose. Followed up with a short weights session and swim.

  12. RUN
    good Bypass 8-miler eastbound 8.23 mi 01:16 09:10 pace

    Longest run I've done in a while. Managed to hold a steady pace throughout., even on the long two-mile climb up to Headington. One more long run on Mon or Tue, and hopefully I'll be ready... read more

  13. RUN
    good Queen's Lane 6-miler 6.19 mi 00:57 09:16 pace

    steady pace run, felt like I could have maintained the same pace for another 10 miles!

  14. RUN
    great St Giles 5-mile loop 4.81 mi 00:41 08:36 pace

    Good lunchtime run. The pace is coming back. Took it easy while warming up, then gave it some welly for the final two miles. I need to run some longer tempo runs over the next 10 days, but perhaps ... read more

  16. RUN
    great Summertown 5K 3.17 mi 00:26 08:15 pace

    Good short run, felt strong. Looks like the gym sessions are making a difference. Warmed up for 1 mile, then did 2-minute intervals (push/recover) for the remaining 2 miles. All I need to do now is... read more
