London.

All shot on Victoria Embankment, London during a short walk along the Thames to clear my head. It’s amazing what you see when you look. Advertisements

Is it winter again?

Well that run was… cold! It was really really cold.  It’s been windy and cold all week and it really my motivation.  I did put on a long sleeve top but I almost went back to get a jacket! I enjoyed todays run though.  Set the timer for 30 minutes.  Had a minor walk section…

Joy in repetition?

Well, they say there is joy in repetition but I know I am growing tried of my run at home as I am literally going around in circles. I enjoy the runs I completed in Spain but I did not do as many as I normally do due to time and to having some niggles…

A quick cold one

That’s exactly what it was! I didn’t have much time and have spent today really concentrating on a piece of work which led me to start my run later than I planned. I did manage a decent run without stopping, had a short pause and then continued on for a bit. It was cold out and…

You know life is an impossible scheme…

Todays session consisted of 5 minute warm up (mixed walk and jogging) 5 minute run 3 minute walk 8 minute run 3 minute walk 5 minute run 5 minute cool down (mixed walk and run) Another cold day and another minor niggle in my right knee this time at the start of the run but…

Burn it up!

Being at home working today has been helpful as it meant I got to get out for a run right after I finished so it was still light. It was damn cold though and I’ll say it was colder than my last run which made it a bit difficult for my chest. Todays run consisted of…

Walking off the cobwebs

We’ve both been very busy so decided to go out and get some air today and headed to Dunwich Heath.

A painful and cold start to the new year

Well this was not the start to the new year I imagined! Following yesterdays run I felt OK but was stiff mid run so decided to do some exercises on the foam roller. Sadly during yesterday I had some pain and heat through my hip, ITB and knee – obviously whatever I had rolled had been…

Challenging!

Well that was a challenging run! Again I have had a break from running – which was partly unintentional and partly intentional!  I have had a week of crazy hours again and I have also had some pain in my joints so I decided to be sensible and wait for it to sort itself out….

No Excuses

No excuses regarding why I have not been running. I went for a run today.  It’s been a while.  It was cold.  It was windy.  It was dark. Wasn’t my longest, wasn’t my shortest run but you know what?  I enjoyed it 🙂 Here’s the stats… The main pic os of one of the houses…

Guten Abend from Essen!

We are in Germany to see Kraftwerk (Saturday night). Here’s a few snaps from our walk around the Christmas market and city centre ok Friday evening.

Stop Go Stop Go Stop!

I was considering whether I should run as I am still not feeling 100% but I eventually decided anything was better than nothing and if I was feeling ill I would stop. And that is almost what happened! It was a bit warmer than it has been and looked spring like – thing is it…
