It’s now been 3 months since i left my job, despite the weather being rubbish and the days being short, the time has gone incredibly quickly. As i mentioned in previous posts i swept my life clean of waste and distractions, i released my worrying thoughts and condemned them to the past, and accepted that… Continue reading Month 3 – Shooting for the moon
In my last blog i talked about 5S, getting rid of “stuff”, making sure the things i kept were useful and in good order, and starting a lifestyle in which old habits don’t grow back. This was the start of a cleansing period for me, I continued doing this both with physical items as well… Continue reading February, continuing my early Spring cleaning
Since taking up entering running races a few years ago January has been my month of searching the internet, randomly picking races to enter, seduced by the words “toughest in the UK” or “one of the top races in the country”. As I’ve got a bit more experienced I’ve reduced my search criteria, for example… Continue reading The Mourne Mountains Skyline and the tale of the imaginary tow rope
I love hills, I’m really bad at them – both up and down hill – but that’s the reason I love them, doing the things you are not good at gives you the best opportunity to improve.

So following 10 days in the sun, laying by the pool, eating and drinking too much, what better thing to do than enter a cycling sportive starting 24 hours after arriving back in the UK !
As I continue my comeback from injury I entered my first munro last Sunday, a half marathon race run by a company called Trionium which had the title “the hardest half in Britain”. I had no idea what a munro was before entering, i thought it was just part of the company name, but now… Continue reading The Trionium Munro
So while injured and rehabilitating on a bike i started making plans for retirement from running, not in a negative way, but as a way to look for new opportunities and challenges. I decided to take my rehab routine and do something with it, so entered something called a cycling sportive – i had no… Continue reading Setbacks bring new challenges – bike race / sportive !
Short and sweet blog, last year I started blogging to help motivate myself and then it turned into something I shared with others. Whilst the year ended badly through injury, 53 days and counting with no running, I used the time saved productively and set myself some new goals for 2015 – complete a bike… Continue reading I’ve been writing a book
