A fresh Sunday morning in Northamptonshire! And our running with my running club Olney Runners. The club organised a 10k race (basically one lap of the reservoir) for club members, their friends & family. But this year also opened it up to other local running clubs. What makes this such event is that all proceeds, […]
It transpires that I am incapable of using a race as purely a training event! The plan for today was to run a steady even pace and use it as my long run for the week. This changed a few days before when I noticed that my training plan has started to suggest that I […]
Should have been the happiest day of my life. Worn out another pair of trainers so just been to a local independent sports shop (who stock Brooks and OC) to buy a new pair… I tried to support the high street… I really did…
