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…

Twiddling thumbs

September 22, 2018 0

One of those weeks really. Managed a couple of runs, but nothing special. Each of them ended up feeling sore and taking a lot longer for it to disappear. Work was busy so no lunch time escapes to the gym or sneaking out for a Yoga lesson. All desk driving and no play makes me…

Going through the motions

Being injured sucks, I mean really sucks. My favourite things are being outside running, cycling or walking. So any time something stops me doing those I’m so grumpy, which is probably the same for most people. But one thing it does do is focus my mind on wether I could have done something to prevent…

About the Beeston Runner

July 22, 2018 0

Hello, I’m Stuart. I live in Beeston (the Nottingham one) and run a bit. Though in the classic case of most running blogs this one is starting up because I’m currently (this is being written in July 2018) nursing an injury 🙁 (Achilles tendinopathy) and I need something to do before I go stir crazy!!…
