Woot! I got out at least, motivation has been lacking of late due to, well, let’s just be honest being a Lazy slob! The weather was unbeatable today so there was no way I could stay in all day. Managed a quick 13k sticking to the roads today, we’ve had so much snow and rain… Continue reading Second run of the year!
We were on a break! I know, I know, I should never have hooked up with Twitter, and Facebook OMG that was a nightmare, but it was always you WordPress, always you. So, like the prodigal Ross Geller, I am back! 2017 was a good year for running! I racked up just over 2,000 kilometers… Continue reading We were on a break!
Yesterday I made a series of very poor choices. I left for a run at 7:30 not realising how far away my objective was, nor bothering to look up how much climbing would be involved. Didn’t pay attention to the temperature high for the day. Didn’t take enough water with me. Didn’t eat breakfast. Just… Continue reading Crazy mountain Run!
Well I made it through my biggest month of running to date! The last week of July I managed three more runs to reach 300k. With two of the three runs being in the mountain I got my total elevation up to 12,000 meters. Psyched about that! For my metrically challenged friends that’s 186 miles… Continue reading End of month. Pics. Cat.

Four runs were in the mountains and the first of the week was a 21k along the river so no graph as it was a flat (ish) run. Mountain legs are doing well and my newest pair of… Continue reading Runs Mon 17 – Sun 23
Big week of running. 7 runs in 8 days for a total 122 kms with about 4,300 meters of climbing! 2 relatively flat runs of 10 and 32k but everything else was mountain. Look carefully, you might see Bambi! 12th c. tower I came across this morning that I’ve never seen before. Got a little… Continue reading Runs fri 7- fri 14 July
OK, so I finished off the month of June with 200k run and 7,500 meters climbed! Had a great half marathon! Scored some good job interviews for the new school year! One more tomorrow. Got a new pair of trail shoes and took them out for a spin today. Took some decent action shots! Ran… Continue reading June recap.
Alrighty then, so last weekend I took a couple days off and made it to Alsace with a friend to visit the area and of course run a half marathon. Why else would a runner go out of town!? We headed out of Grenoble Thursday afternoon making a pit stop in Chambéry to pick out… Continue reading Half marathon in Alsace !
Crazy mountain climbing going on all this month! June 1st: 15k / 1,018 meters / 2:45:00 And today: 26.5k / 1,823 meters / 4:23:00 Feels good to be climbing again. I cut back for a week or so, not sure why, but the legs just didn’t want to go there. All is right in the… Continue reading 2 mountain runs!
