Energia 24hr Race – 23/24th June

Utter maddness ! Manic what can I say,  I took the Friday off to ensure I was prepared and also had reflexology, which later could have also contributed to my foot blisters. Anyway travelling with the crew was Jo and I from Heathrow and Norman and Anne from Birmingham.  All of which were going to be […]

Wargrave 10k – 10th June

A bit of a disaster! A race with my friend Leigh and the last training run before I hit the 24hr event on June 23/24th.  I had a bad build up of low level running, overworked and a bit stressed.  With this race I started off with the wrong attitude.  The pollen in the carpark […]

Chiltern Chase 15k – 3rd June 2018

Another hot one ! This wasn’t a race I felt particularly felt very well prior to the start.  Probably an accumulation of a busy work week having done a short day visit to Sweden and also the heat picking up.  Regardless the distance suited me being a little further than the norm and meant I […]

Wallingford 10k – 3rd June 2018

On a very hot day and still heat exhausted some weeks later after the Thames path I knew this would be a tough one.  Ultimately I was using this or a good hard training session and a local race.  With a few hundred on the start line, a local community feel and recognizing some local […]

SEAA & National Relays – Saturday 14th April 2018

A SOLID PERFORMANCE FROM THE BELLES AT SUTTON PARK An account from our team manager from the relays on what I would describe heavy legs, I set the Belles off on the first, one of the two tough long stages of 5.38 miles on this year’s National road relay.  Not feeling 100% and although battled courageously […]

The  A race, I had been training for since last year failing to finish at Winschouten 100k in September 2017.  This was the second selection for the same distance and this time I was desperate to finish and prove my fitness. The Anglo Celtic Plate ( ACP) is a yearly event which rotates between England, […]

XNRG Humanity 50k ” Solid Training Run” – Saturday 10th March 2018

Slightly nervous on an off-road race, still nursing my temperature and feeling exhausted I did also go and get some blood tests to ensure I wasn’t having still glandular issues.  I was pleased to confirm that the blood count looked good and the temperature likely to be triggered from exhaustion/anxiety and stress.  Almost relief to get clear […]

SEAA Cross Country, Brighton – Saturday 27th January 2018

A TOUGH DAY ON THE DOWNS The venue at Stanmer Park is usually a favourite of Belgrave Harriers with happy memories from the last visit in 2015 when both men and women’s teams won silver team medals.  This year, however, proved very different. Travel to the venue proved lengthy with both rail replacement and M23 […]
