Langsett Trail 10k 2017

Langsett Trail 10k 2017

Oooh, another trail run! While trying to stick to my training plan for the Sheffield Half coming up in April, I’m constantly being tempted into races. I’m not quite sure who put me on to The Langsett Trail runs (might have been Lindsey) but being as this one was just up the road, I really couldn’t resist. There was an option of a 10k, or 13 mile route and I opted for the 10k.  I’m not really sure why I…

2017 12k Resolution Trail Run

2017 12k Resolution Trail Run

First race of the year done!  Even though I’m supposed to be training for the Sheffield half right now, I couldn’t resist signing up for this one.  The Resolution Run is a 12k or 6k run around Rother Valley Country Park, a 30 minute drive away.  It would have been rude not to! I signed up for the 12k, a race distance I’ve never done before, so I was a little confused about how to run it, especially based on feeling…

The new Sheffield 10k, 2016

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…

Round Sheffield Run

Round Sheffield Run

Wow. What a run. Very muddy following the rainfall yesterday, but a glorious day for it. Well organised, although the signs disappeared on the last 2 sections, and a great day. Paul and I were in a team and aiming to beat his previous time of 1hr 32mins 56secs which was going to be tough as last year he was on form for a marathon run a month later. This time, although I was in ok shape, Paul was recovering…

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…
