London to Spain via Paisley Park

During my flights to Malaga and back again I admitted myself back into the live world of Prince. On the way out I transported myself back to 1988 and a tour I am more than familiar with, Lovesexy. I have heard this tour so many times I know it word for word.  The emotion. The…

The eventful Spanish run

I didn’t run first thing today as we had a very long day on Ronda yesterday and we both decided to have a lie in.   I waited until after my siesta for it to cool down before heating the promenade.  This was a very different one to what I am use to hear as…

Ronda and Acinipo

We had a day away from the coast and did the long windy drive to Ronda.  It’s been several years since we last visited but it’s such a lovely place, we had to go back.  This time as well as the old town, the views of the gorge, the balcony and bullring… We also visited…

Lungs full of sea air

It felt so much better to be running in the warm with clean sea air.  I hear we’ve missed snow and wintry conditions whilst being in Spain so I’m grateful we came away when we did.   This was my first opportunity to run so I got out of bed, put on my kit and…

Away from Le Grind

A fairly busy day at home in what has turned out to be a cold day.  We had some lovely spring days this last week but today it’s cold.  Typically by the time I got out for a run it was also wet 😔 I ran with my Apple Watch today instead of my Tom…

Sunday Run day

Thankfully today was much sunnier and drier than yesterday. I did the usual Sunday chores, said goodbye to our nephew who has been staying a couple days and then headed off for my run. I’m not sure if I went out too strong or whether I was tired but this was more of a challenge than…

Short burst to end the week

The end of a hectic week was marked with a short 3K burst around the block. Today I managed to find a good rhythm and my stride.  It was cold and fresh out but that didn’t seem to matter and my legs/shins weren’t that hard today either. I knew I was tired before I put…

Continuous

Well nearly.  I decided on todays run that I would ignore the intervals and simply run. I had the right mindset today as I pushed myself to go further and gave myself targets in my head which I kept moving.  Unfortunately I just missed the target of 2K without stopping (by 0.2k!) but I am…

Easter Sunday Run

I have plenty of time to runt today, mainly as it’s a long 4 day bank holiday here in the UK. Richard left early for a golf day so I decided to head out for a rune once I completed some chores (I know rock and roll right!). Before the run I did the pre…

Wet intervals

That’s exactly what todays run was.  Oh and tired and sore. I completed three of the interval sections and ran through the warm up so fell like I did alright. My chest has been a bit tight this week so I decided to be careful. It’s the first time I have run in rain in…
