Week 3 (July 10th – July 16th 2017)

Today marks the third week of the 12 week training program I’ve started to try and improve my fitness prior to the Chicago Marathon later in the year. Overall this week a little bit less than last week because on most of Friday and Saturday were spent doing the most amazing thing – my daughter was born! Anna Lay born on the 15th of July …

Week 2 (July 3rd – July 9th 2017)

Today marks the second week of the 12 week training program I’ve started to try and improve my fitness prior to the Chicago Marathon later in the year. Overall a great week with Wednesday being the biggest day where I did a 2 hour walk to Empeiji Temple and clocking in 29,877 steps with 2185 active calories which included a steady run for 20 minutes …

Today marks the first week of a roughly 12 week training program I’ve started to try and improve my fitness prior to the Chicago Marathon later in the year.

This ultimately meant I wasn’t building …

I landed at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport around 2pm local time, jump straight on to the rental car shuttle bus and made my way to the nearby rental car park. After getting myself a …

Saturday Training December 3rd – Central Park

Another weekend and another beautiful training day for running around Central Park. Started off around 12 noon riding a Citi Bike north along Central Park West making my way to the starting point where the NYRR Joe Kleinerman 10K starts on January 7th 2017. Remember my goal is less than 50 minutes to do 10km, and slowly but surely I’m slowly decreasing the time. I think a few …

Saturday Training…Might Have Skipped Last Sunday

Training over the past few weeks did not quite happy due to a slight injury that I wanted to let fully recover. Was happy to get out today and enjoy the weather whilst it’s still not too cold, but it’s certainly starting to feel chilly. Clearly the thanksgiving festivities over the past few days and my lack of training hasn’t helped my time very much, …
