The run with two times

It’s been a tough week this week and it’s been hot. My total commute yesterday was over 6 hours and needless to say I have been tired but I have also been determined to get at least one more cadence session in this week. I am not going to get the chance to run this…

Ethereal Cereal

16 years in the making and as well as a mind blowing album, The Avalanches also produce one of the most startling album previews ever. Sit back. Relax. Enjoy. The more I watch this the more I wonder if The Avalanches have a probe inside my head? Who can tell me where the post image…

False start, new hope

Determined to get a run in I ensured after arriving home I’d feed Tilly, change then head out. I was not 100% with it though as I thought my Tom Tom had yet to find a signal (but I should know unlike my Garmin, it has no such problems). I saw the screen and moved…

Up the ante

Today was another run of cadence work. I’m supposed you run around 149 steps per minute but I used my Moov coach today and the minimum is 160.  I started slower and built up by completing 6 intervals. I eventually ran two final intervals at 160 which didn’t feel to hard.  My calves were a…

Tap Tap Tap Tap

Today’s run was short but it was fun, it was energetic and it was exhilarating. Whilst at the Physiotherapist on Monday I had a session on the treadmill where she monitored my running form etc. I have good balance and my hips and pelvis are aligned as they should be, my knees are also wide…

Leave?  Are you kidding me?

I cannot believe what I am waking up to. What is wrong with this country? This country needs to bloody wake up. Leave voters bow your heads. If you voted leave, please feel free to remove yourself as a friend and a follower as I have no time for you or your narrow minded xenophobic…

Seven days in Sunny June!

Well not sunny…  I really wanted to get out for a run today after working at home (and it was sunny this morning).  But sadly now it is lashing down – water is pouring down the road.  I could go out but I do not want to slip and cause myself any mischief. I went…

Ohh I am moist!

It’s been sunny and it’s been stormy and I knew I wasn’t going to miss the rain today and I certainly did not.  Half way through my run it started to spit and soon the heavens opened. I passed a chunky guy running along in sunglasses, a vest and large headphones.  When we passed one…

Hot Thing

Today was another hot one but that didn’t stop me! I had another appointment with the Physio yesterday and have receive some deep tissue massage which really hit the spot.  I’ve also got more exercises to stretch my calves which are sore whilst doing them, but generally feel better.  The run was good. I ran…

Riser-ing to the occasion!

I managed to complete a run this evening to try out the risers the physiotherapist gave me yesterday. Although they did not feel as uncomfortable or as large as I was expecting them to. I ran a single loop around where we live which took me to 15 minutes and just over 2K. Yes there…
