ACP 100k, Ireland – 21st August 2021

A week on and still reflecting on a race that had many tales that turned. It was hard for me having run the 24hr, not expecting the race to happen so the planning had changed a bit. Having felt off pace reverted back from the 50k back to the 100k. Arriving in Dublin on the […]

Race Round Up – August 2021

SAL Match3 – August 2021 – Planned originally just for 3000m but with light numbers thought I may get roped into a few more events. Training was planned with 40 mins post event. However post warm up and running the 3k which was slightly slower than last month I went in also as the ” […]

Race Round Up – July 2021

Crawley AIM 6hr- 3rd July – This was a race that started of well but tough conditions with heavy cloud and humidity. Having surpassed just a week since my coach Normans funeral it was all too much. The race format with the 24hr (in hindsight think I would have run better longer) were also in […]

Race Round Up – June 2021

June 2021, Coming off a good few months of long races decided to do a few short ones in the lead up to the Crawley 6hr. Especially as I wanted a way to cope with the loss of Norman and his funeral that was coming up on Monday 21st June. Dorney 10k – First up […]

North Downs 50 miler -Sat 22nd May

A very early start for me and a few weeks after my 10k in Kew and Centurion 100. This was going to be tough with a 3.45am alarm and a 5.30am start. Truth be told this was out of my comfort zone, hilly, challenging and also having not reccied the course due to Covid worried […]

Kew Gardens 10k – Sat 15th May

Great morning racing Richmond Runfest 10k at Kew Gardens. What a privilege to run around. A bit short for me considering this years focus but certainly helps to get you race fit. Lovely to see Eric who has always supported my running and as one of the main helpers made it that little easier being […]

Centurion 100 Track, Ashford – 24th April 2021

“Let’s Go Round Again !” Wow what a weekend, I experienced so many emotions from my racing on at the Centurion Track 100, now renamed my “Super Saturday”. A week on and still reflecting the concept of breaking what was a 31-year-old record set by a very experienced ultra-distance legend Eleanor Robinson for the 100 miles. […]

Sun 3rd April 2021 – Dorney Marathon

“More Laps” This marathon came up thick and fast post having been running in what I would class as “isolation”.  No races so it was all about trying to maintain fitness and 121 sessions with the odd person for tempos and speed sessions.  I made sure I ran with someone to do these mainly for […]

“Let’s Go Round Again” – Sun 20 March 2021

IAU British Athletics 6hr Solidarity Run Whilst this wasn’t a GB race against many competitors on the same circuit it did allow me to test my 6hr timing in preparation for the 100-mile track event at the end of April when races resume. It was a pleasure to be shortlisted and selected, this was open […]
