Amsterdam Marathon PB: 3:23:50

Amsterdam Marathon PB: 3:23:50

I guess you can made an educated guess about what you are capable of doing, and then letting your body show you how right you were Church of Saint Nicholas A post shared by Kelly D (@delanthear) on Oct 13, 2017 at 9:44am PDT My third marathon, after York (thrown in the deep end) and Venice (let’s actually do some planning for this) was always going to be interesting. Venice had given me a bit of a taste of what…

Welcome to the Pain Cave: Sheffield Half Marathon 2017

Welcome to the Pain Cave: Sheffield Half Marathon 2017

New Half Marathon PB of 1:35:24! I’m pretty damn happy with this. I’ve just knocked 3mins 34secs off my previous Half Marathon PB at The Great North Run, a run which is substantially easier than this one. The Sheffield Half is a big loop out of the city, climbing up a big hill just into the edge of the peaks and then back again down to Sheffield. That hill meant I really had no idea how to pace it. I…

New Parkrun 5k PB

New Parkrun 5k PB

20:29! Pretty happy with this! It was Hillsborough Parkrun’s 4th birthday, and as a result we ran it backwards. I figured this was a good opportunity to push my PB a bit, as with the reverse direction, the main downhill section is a lot longer (and consequently, the uphill steeper and shorter!) so in theory pushing hard on that long down hill should buy me seconds as long as I can push though the hill pain! And I did. Phew….

The new Sheffield 10k, 2016

I’ve been 5k training since the Round Sheffield Run back in July as I’ve never managed to beat 20mins. The idea was to train a bit and once I got to the end of the Endomondo training plan do a Rother Valley (reasonably flat) parkrun. Somewhere along the line, I got convinced to sign up for the Sheffield 10k, so tweaked my 5k plan to land on this date, figuring that the speed work on that plan should help with…

Venice Marathon. New PB!

Venice Marathon. New PB!

Holy Crap. Endomondo was predicting 3h:37m:59s which I wasn’t expecting to hit at all, especially with what felt like a really disrupted last month of training. I really had no idea of how to run it, so was really quite nervous. Even worse, my left leg appeared to start going dead on me. I spent a good chunk of Saturday wandering around Venice getting more paranoid about it as I seemed to be constantly on the edge of cramp in…
