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 […]

Sunday 6th December 2020 – Goodwood Marathon

Laps Glorious Laps ! Having run the 20 mile in September I knew what to expect but still hopeful the conditions would have improved from the high winds back in September.  Sadly this wasn’t the case and it was set to be a very cold and windy race.  For the marathon it was 11.5 laps […]

November 2020 “What Racing ?”

Sadly due to Covid lock down number 2 and despite being fit (mainly through racing) managed to keep the miles ticking over and good blocks of training. Having recovered from getting hyperthemic at the 24hr and hip flexor issues I was deperate to put in a good race performance. This was the start of the […]

Friday 30th October 2020 – Gloucester Track 24hr

My learning experience from having run a few 100’s and also long distance events the last few years I need to keep improving on my nutrition. For the Thames Path I had tried Maurten but found this very sugary  in taste so I went back to my trusted tailwind plan amongst different nutrition: https://www.facebook.com/xmilesuk/photos/a.226055824265909/1617544228450388/ Normally […]

Sat 17th Oct 2020 -Newbury 10k & Wimbledon 5k

Coming off a stressful week at work, post 50k I was less than enthusiastic about a race weekend let alone my 2-1 in 1 day. Although once commited I know needed to use these as a race/training opportunity. Always better when booked and planned with a friend. A day of races! 10k @10.30am in Newbury […]

Saturday 10th Oct 2020 – Run To The Sea 50k

Part of a 2 race series the first was in August Reading ultra and this one was even more scenic along the coast and through Poole – Bournemouth. With the race being an early start made a decision to stay local and have someone look after my son. This proved sadly to be a mistake […]
