Barford Power Station non-parkrun

Among the many things that have fallen foul of COVID-19 has been the weekly opportunity to run at parkrun. Now with my sons football, often I couldn’t make it on a Saturday morning but when I did make it down, it wouldn’t feel like I’d been away. However, I know...

I don’t know if it is the fact I’m now on the home straight, or that I was back at work this week. However, the week has flown by and suddenly we’re down to just 5 weeks until the first Marathon. I won’t lie, I am starting to feel a...

Marathon Training – Week 8 – Halfway There

In the words of Bon Jovi, “whoa we’re halfway there”! In some ways it doesn’t seem very long at all since I started this 16wk training plan. However, 8 weeks down and I am halfway to Manchester (and then London). After a new longest (again!) last Sunday, Monday was a...

Marathon training – Week 4

Summer Returns

It’s been 4 weeks since Pocket parkrun returned to the Summer course. With my summer PB about a minute slower than my winter one, I was desperate to give it a crack. However, after two weeks away and then another two running with my son and daughter, I was getting...

parkrunning with the Kids Again

A couple of months ago I wrote about how much I enjoy that my kids are enjoying running. On that occasion I’d been joined by my son at parkrun. This week I had been planning on attempting to better my summer course PB at Pocket. I’d missed the past two...
