So it’s taken quite a few weeks for me to get around to writing this post. As expected the Great Birmingham 10K was cancelled so Project 10K is no more. Knowing that it was very likely to be cancelled I was determined to carry on with the full training block even if it meant meContinue reading “Project 10K is no more”
Week 1 of Project 10K has taken place while the world seems to have gone to hell. Given all the races that have been cancelled so far in March and April because of COVID 19, I’m not holding out much hope that my 10K will actually go ahead at the end of May. Although it’sContinue reading “Project 10K Week 1”
Going into this year I have done two 10K races previously.
This week was much better in terms of consistency. Also the weather this week by and large has been much more conducive to consistency.

At the end of 2019 I knew that if I was setting goals for 2020 I needed to be smarter about it than when I did it for 2019. I believe that the time based goals I have set for myself are achievable. Having ran 22:41 last year, sub 22:00 for 5K may not seemContinue reading “2020 Goals”
As I mentioned in my previous post, my first year of running taught me that I work best when I have a goal to aim for otherwise I just drift and procrastinate. So going into 2019 I decided that at the start of the year I would give myself some goals to work towards. ItContinue reading “2019 a year in review”
Beginnings As I mention in Why I became a Runner post, I began 2018 as an overweight non runner. Looking back, I find it hard to believe that I had got as big as I had without realising it. As a child and teenager, I was always active and forever playing sport whether it wasContinue reading “My first year of running”
