Monday Photographs #22, #23 & #24

I’ve been away again through a combination of leave and family visits, so here’s a catch up post: Autumn is well and truly here, but that hasn’t affected our running. Wk#22 – speed reps in the rain Across the river from where we live there is this narrow lane leading to some alotments via a…

The dreaded lurgy might have scuppered my plans to run the John Frazer 10 on Sunday, but fortunately we weren’t a runner-less family all weekend: Man-flu is on the way out, you’ll be pleased to hear, and I went out for what must count as my first autumn run: heavy skies, rain, and fading light.

Unencumbered as I am by the constraints of a calendar, and by the grace of an extra day-off added to the bank holiday weekend, I declare today as the start of the new week! Which means that the photo of the week that was can include Gin Festival on Saturday and Speed reps on Tuesday…

A photo from the week that was: A return to Parkrun! It’s difficult for me to make it to Parkrun these days, and this Saturday was only the second time I took part this year! I was hoping that my run of decent performances (Joy Cann 5, Carl Rutt 10k) would continue, but the result…

Monday Photograph #11

The photo of the week that was… One of the features I like about my new Suunto Spartan Trainer is the watchface which shows you the sunset and sunrise times. It also represents the daylight and dusk hours as an arch surrounding the face (the yellow, orange and red sections above). This photo was taken…

The photo of the week that was… …photo courtesy of Kyriakos. And this is how it’s been feeling a bit of late, nothing pretty, just head down and carrying on with carrying on. I’m not training for anything or even following any sort of plan, just trying to keep momentum and not fall into the…
