It’s been a while since I last posted, and that’s because I gave up on running. Life got in the way, I went though some pretty massive life changes, and I let it fall by the wayside.  I moved house in May last year and away from my village route. I’m sure if I’d made the effort I could have found a new...

A Little Less Procrastination

Jan 23, 14 A Little Less Procrastination

Posted by in Musings, Running

As I sat in my comfy chair playing inane games on my iPad on Sunday and not even thinking about going for my planned training run I was reminded that this time last year nothing would have kept me indoors, not the weather, not injury, I’d have been out there following my marathon training plan regardless, and that I was...

Because of Manchester marathon being just a few weeks earlier than London it means my training plan has already commenced, albeit a bit of a rough start.

I ran 5k on the 1st December but other than that I think it’s July since I last ran. I had such good intentions, I was going to start running again...

My running was going really well right through to June this year, as you may recall I even took my trainers on holiday with me, but for some reason when I came home the running petered out. I blamed some work stress in June/July for triggering the M.E again and it pretty much resulted in me spending five hours in casualty this...

M.E and running – a balancing act

Aug 01, 13 M.E and running – a balancing act

Posted by in Health

I’ve not run for almost two weeks now, I’m not sure there’s really a good reason for it, other than I feel lousy. I’m trying to decide if this is just apathy, or if it’s the bloody M.E telling me to take it easy. I’ve had M.E for over twenty years now, I’m very lucky that most of the time...
