August and July Round Up

August and July Round Up

Christ, what happened to July and August?   They’ve just flown by like crazy in a haze of work, course, climbing and running related busyness, and still I’m rushing!  Ok, well here is a quick round up of the last two months:

June Round Up

June Round Up

A quick round up of June, a little late, but I’ve been busy! Running June included two rather large milestones for running. Firstly, I’m signed up to the You Vs The Year Challenge on Endomondo/MapMyRun which is where the header for these Round Up posts comes from. The challenge was to complete 1017km of running in 2017, which I completely this month. I’m a good 150+ km ahead of where I was distance wise this year. I’m also tracking distance…

May 2017 Round Up

May 2017 Round Up

May FLEW by like Usain Bolt, and although it started strongly after my April rest fornight, I was quickly sidelined with a nasty chest cold which lingered for about a week and a half and clashed with a race I’d been looking forward to for a couple of months. Running I covered 177k in May, irritatingly short of the 200k needed for the monthly distance Strava badge.  This was pretty much down to the previously mentioned cold which hit me…

April 2017 Round Up

April 2017 Round Up

This is a little late for my April round up, but I’ve been really busy with other things. April has mostly been the Sheffield Half Marathon and then a recover fortnight off! Running April kicked off with the Sheffield Half Marathon which you can read all about on my blog post. My plan for April was to take a 2 week break after the race to try and give my sore ankles a bit of rest before ramping the training…

March 2017 Round Up

March 2017 Round Up

March done with and still going, although my feet are pretty sore! I’ve still not managed to shake the niggling ankle injury I’ve had for a long time now, but I’ve promised myself to take a rest (ish) after the Sheffield Half Marathon in a couple of days. Running 240km run this month, which is the most I’ve done since 2014, also March coincidentally.  That was the month of my first Embrace Sports trainingholiday which will have pushed up my…

February 2017 Round Up

February 2017 Round Up

2017 definitely has started rolling now, with the weeks picking up speed as they go past.    It’s been a pretty good month from a training point of view, right up to the last week. Running Plenty of running happening this month in line with my training plan, right up to the last week.  After a final ‘easy’ 15k run on the 24th, which for the last few k felt very hard indeed (despite being being quite low on the HR…

January 2017 Round Up

January 2017 Round Up

31st of January 2017, what have I been up to? Running! Firstly, running! Lots of running! I joined the “You Vs the Year 2017” challenge which challenges you to run 1017km over the year and the #run1000miles 2017 Trail Mag challenge. I did the YVTY challenge last year and managed it, so now of the same! Last year it was tracked in Endomondo, but it appears to have moved to MapMyRun this time (which is annoying because I don’t really…

Year Round Up and Next Year

Year Round Up and Next Year

So, how has 2014 been for my climbing? Mostly pretty lousy to be honest, but if you read my last post, I’ve explained all that! However, on the bright side, I’ve got myself in decent running shape, and I’m ending the year carefully getting back on the Bouldering wagon. So, on the running. For the past few months I’ve attempting to be improving my 5k time, (I.e. I really want a sub 20 min 5k!) and I’ve been following an…
