Getting back into it.

August 11, 2019 0

Took 3 weeks off of running after I started getting some hip pain that just wasn’t shifting. Decided taking a decent time off might sort it. It mostly did, but a trip to a physio (shout out to Owen at Moore Associates Physiotherapy) gave me the final bits to fix it. In my case it…

Cheap and easy Sleep improvement

June 28, 2019 1

Sleep. We all want it but most of us never seem to get enough. There’s hundreds of sleep tips over the internet, and I’ve read enough books on sleep to build a bed from. I’ve never been a great sleeper but had gotten used to pushing through with caffeine and a grumpy demeanor. But pushing…

Another change of plans

April 14, 2019 0

So I was meant to be running the Boston Marathon today (that’s Boston, Lincolnshire, UK, not Boston,MA, US) I know there’s a good few weeks of training logs missing (which I will backfill?), but it had been going well with a couple of solid 20+ mile runs and a new PB at the Retford Half…

East Midlands XC League – Long Eaton

February 22, 2019 0

Fancying something a bit different on a spare Sunday Mrs Beeston Runner and myself decided we’d have a go at a Cross Country race. One of the benefits of having joined our local running club Beeston AC was that we get free entry into various local leagues. As it’s still technically winter that meant XC…

Week 3 of Boston Marathon training

January 14, 2019 0

The next gripping instalment of my marathon training for the Boston Marathon in April 2019. Went into the week feeling pretty good, especially as Monday is a rest day just to make life easier. Goals for this week were to up the distance a little bit and bring in some cross training bits. Tuesday was…

Second week of Boston Marathon training done

January 8, 2019 0

Didn’t write much about my first week of training as it was all a bit ad hoc around Christmas and family travelling. Nice run around the weal of Kent on Christmas morning was the highlight. Nice crunchy frozen mud and only saw one human over the 7 miles. So skipping straight into week 2 then.…

Just keep it going

January 3, 2019 0

2018 ended and 2019 started with one of those things runners love, a nice stinking cold. As much as I love my niece and nephew I think their present to me probably lasted longer than mine to them This one was a particular stinker which kept on moving around. Mostly above the neck so I…

How’s my running? – Gait Analysis

December 16, 2018 0

I’ve been having recurring issues with my right ankle this year. Nothing too bad, but enough to make me stop running for a couple of weeks for it to disappear (Injury woes). Then 2 weeks ago it moved up into my hip. No a major searing pain, but enough after half a mile that I…

Up and over Trowell Moor

October 19, 2018 0

Wednesday evening is my late cover for work, but the upside is I get a 3 hour break before it starts. So with some nice weather I decided to head out of Beeston away from the Big Track and run up and over Trowell Moor. Trowell Moor doesn’t really compare to the large moors in…

London Cardiff 24 2018, a review

July 28, 2018 0

A little big of background for this one. London Cardiff 24 is a 24 hour relay run/race from London to Cardiff for teams of 12 runners. It’s a nice mix of canal towpaths, bridleways, footpaths, the occasional bit of quiet road running and the Ridgeway at night. Oh, and lots of supermarket car parks! 2018’s…
