WE 22nd May - 1 race, distance 5km in 0:28:57 WE 29th May - 2 training sessions, week distance 13.8 miles. Total distance run this year 102 miles Ran my first ever 10 miler yesterday. Time 1:55:48.

Running consecutive days
I’ve been wanting to try my local running club (Crystal Palace Fun Runners) for a while. Left work with plenty of time to make it today but somehow go caught up at home. Made it to the meeting point just to see everyone begin their run :( I’ll try to join them again next week. So, I decided to run by myself. No biggie as this is the way I’ve trained so far. Ran 6.4km today,...

Training update - WE 15th May - and Race 2/7
Only managed 2 sessions this week (work’s been busy and I’ve lacked energy all week - yada yada, excuses excuses). Evenso increased my distance today so thats something. WE 15th May Total training distance = 20.5 km/ 12.7m from 2 sessions of 5 km/3.1m and 15.5km/9.6 m. This long session took 1:43:54, average pace of 6:36 mins/km or 10:36 mins/miles. Which is better...
Just checked my running log and realised I’ve run 75 miles this year! That’s quite an achievement for me. This time last year I would not have even considered even running 1 mile let alone setting myself a running challenge for 2011. I’m starting to feel the benefits of training so will now try to step up the training. Longer distances and quicker pace (I WILL get a sub-55 at...
Starting to build on my endurance by running longer distances once a week. I’m starting with 8 miles then increasing that each week until the 4th week where I’ll bring it back to 8 miles and start again etc. The plan is to stick to the shorter sessions too, as well as sticking to those intervals (urgh - they’re so difficult). Training update WE 1st May - 1 session, distance...
May 2011 update - summer is here
London has had a surprisingly sunny and dry April. Today is 1st May and the sun is STILL out, 18C although windy. It seems the summer has arrived. Summer is London is great as it puts everyone in a good mood and Londoners tend to be less rude! I usually find this a positive thing. Unfortunately, now that my free time seems to revolve around running schedules and race dates looming especially the...
