Dissecting “disaster”

Disaster is a strong word but in light of getting nowhere near my London goal it’s worth reflecting on what contributed to it after four months of solid training.

Disaster – London Marathon 2017 [Report]

4 months of training, a good bump in mileage and some excellent race results in build up but on the big day a race of two halves and a big disappointment crossing the line in the end.

Report – Canalathon 50k

Joint 3rd place and a run that went pretty much to my best hopes, and Canalathon 50k  turned out to be one of my best races in a long time.

Looking forward to Canalathon 50k

I’ve had my eye on Canalathon for a couple of years but it’s always been passed over in favour of a bigger goal close to the date but this time I’m going to take on the 50k before London.

Veteran status

This week I’ve hit the big 4-0. A move into a new age category and many new goals to aim for.
