I spent a long time trying to come up with a title for this post. In essence, it is another "catch-up", summarising my training to date during June. I looked for suitable quotations about June to help disguise the repetitive theme of catching up, but that would have come across as too contrived. I found … Continue reading Slow Train to Fitness
Hey, I am the catch-up runner! Well, I try to catch-up with those in front, but not particularly successfully. In fact, it is difficult to even catch-up with myself at times.

These runs are a bit more demanding than my gentle little jogs and recovery runs - I always seem to be … Continue reading Everybody Be Happy – It’s Tempo Tuesday!

Come October, I can feel the Earth slip on its axis and there is a perceptible shift in the light-dark balance. Next weekend sees the end of … Continue reading Falling for Autumn
So, we're getting all highbrow now are we, throwing in a bit of Latin to make a mundane post seem more interesting? Absolutely. Guilty as charged. Mea culpa. Another deviation from tradition today because I undertook my long run in the late afternoon instead of in the morning. It actually worked out well, having time … Continue reading Ad Libitum Sunday Running
