  1. RUN
    4.86 mi

    Finally went for a run after a whole week of not being able to get out of the door. Nothing remarkable but glad to done it.

  2. RUN
    Saffron Trail ultra 70 mi 16:28 14:06 pace

    Thoroughly enjoyed this tough 70 mile self-nav race, starting at 6pm on Saturday night and running through the night. I got lost a few times, so reckon I had a few bonus miles but generally it went... read more

  3. RUN
    5.54 mi

    Such a late run tonight. Just couldn't be bothered to go all evening but finally dragged myself out at 10.30. Good to get it done though...except that everything hurt. Hopefully tomorrow'... read more

  4. RUN
    Ranscombe Challenge 38 mi

    Had a wonderful day at the Ranscombe Challenge - a beautiful course, lots of friends, and felt so very comfortable running. 10 laps done.

  5. RUN
    Photoshoot 1 mi

    Having a photoshoot for the This Girl Can campaign...did various mini runs over a couple of hours. Have estimated that they've added up to a mile! :P

  6. RUN
    3.4 mi

    A run commute to get home during the tube strike. Awful running in central London with the crowds and traffic...far too busy and stressful!

  7. RUN
    4.52 mi

    After totally losing interest in running for the last nine days, I finally managed to get my head together and pull my kit on. Only a few miles, and very tough going to start with (too much rest is... read more

    great Great Barrow Challenge - Day 4 26.4 mi

    The best day of my quad - it rained and the temperature was cooler which made a massive difference, I actually enjoyed this one! Was my fastest time of the four days too. Legs feeling good, only a ... read more

    alright Great Barrow Challenge - day 3 26.4 mi

    In a bid to try and enjoy today's marathon, I ditched the garmin, the iPod, the race vest... Just me and a bottle of water in my hand. It worked a bit, less pressure, and although it was still... read more

    blah Great Barrow Challenge - day 2 27.1 mi

    This was so tough! The heat and humidity didn't help, plus lots of sandy trails but better signed than yesterday so only nearly got lost ;) Was very slow but got it done. Really not enjoying t... read more

  11. RUN
    Great Barrow Challenge - day 1 26.9 mi

    My first marathon of my 4in4 challenge. I really struggled today - we went out last night to a gig and I only had 4 hours sleep which wasn't ideal, and it was really hot and sunny too. I also ... read more

    great Another Saffron Trail recce 24 mi

    Lovely day out today doing more recceing of this route. Bumped into two friends doing the same thing so we spent the day running together and it was fab. Beautiful views today and some lovely littl... read more

    Saffron Trail recce 16 mi

    A recce of another section of the Saffron Trail in advance of next month's event. It's so nice to be running somewhere I've never been before, but without the pressure of a race. Unf... read more

  14. RUN
    4.38 mi

    A relaxed few miles, but felt a speed in my legs I haven't had since before TP100. Maybe this is recovery?! :D

    Recce of leg 1 & 2 of Saffron... 16.5 mi

    Really enjoyable morning spent trying to follow the 2 legs of route instructions for next month's Saffron Trail race, from Southend to Hullsbridge. A lovely mix of seaside, urban pavement, fie... read more

      Sounds like a great day-I would have serious trouble in an unmarked trail race, nice work!

      Yep, think this is going to be really tough & there's a high probability of getting lost & adding some bonus miles :P Generous cut off times though so hopefully will be ok

    Lovely country lanes bike ride with my husband down in Kent. We went to a totally new place to ride and it was lovely to discover roads we'd never been to before. Sections of it were absolutel... read more

  17. RUN
    Stour Valley Marathon 27.5 mi

    I struggled to be honest - I don't think I'm recovered from GUCR and my legs felt heavy from about mile 8! It was very warm which didn't help either. It's a stunning course thou... read more

      Looked out for you at the start but didn't see you - no surprise you found it tough so soon after GUCR. I manged to get lost twice and tripped over a tree root so learnt some good lessons ahead of SVP100! Agree about the medal, it's fantastic!
