  • Excellent write up Ian.  Fantastic achievement to knock such a huge chunk off previous times – and must be really satisfying to think how the changes you made – shedding surplus poundage and going for systematic HR training – have contributed.  Shame about the nasty downhill niggle – I suppose on big ultra of that kind it would be unusual for t…[Read more]

    Gosh Ian what a write up, you always do a yet this one i could feel the enjoyment of the race tbroughout it.  The time clocking up at each CP must have been giving you a bit of a boast and did well getting out of them swiftly.  3 hours 21 minutes is a massive time difference Ian.

    Sorry the knee gave you some trouble but im so glad you didn’t g…[Read more]

  • Huge huge congratulations Ian what a great result and write up. With the training you put in and doing something about the lightbulb moment you had last year it was always possible for you to get that sub 18 but to crack it in just over 16 and a half hrs and in 11th place is a well earned time/placing. I know you are not completely satisfied but…[Read more]

      W1/R4 – 5M in Z3. Up at stupid o’clock to get hubs to Biggin Hill for an 8am flight in a spitfire … the anniversary of the Battle of Britain and an absolutely glorious day … it couldn’t have been better. He’s still walking on air 😉 So, out for my run this evening. The heat, humidity and off-road hills didn’t make it easy to manage the HR, so once…[Read more]

      S30 W20/R3 ECC 10k series

      Had lots to think about this week including whether to go ahead with this run.

      Firstly thanks to you lovely bugs with the support and advice I will be on the start line for Stort. I know if I dont at least attempt it I’ll regret it – what’s that saying ‘it’s better to try and fail than fail to try’? So New Forest is…[Read more]

    • Super approach to take, Amanda. An enjoyable, no pressure outing and the Achilles is doing OK … Spot on, inside a week of your marathon. Hope that’s given you a bit of a confidence boost as well 🙂

    • Nice six-miles there and good choice to give it a try at least, Amanda! Take it easy though and please don’t push yourself beyond your limits….

    • That went well, Amanda – and a spot of overtaking always helps to boost the morale!

    Well that all went rather well, even taking the knee niggle into account, you dealt with it like a pro and while it may have cost a little time on the descents it’s hard to predict how much.  I said to you several times in the last few months I thought that 16 ½ hours was entirely doable for you on this course, and when asked by someone else t…[Read more]

      13 Arches W2 R4. Plan another 10 miler.

      Having got home from Blackpool first thought was to read up on how Ian did? a bit too keen as he had writen it lol..

      Got myself sorted and off i set, HR in the Red from the off 😡🤬 i was walking… usual took it off still the same. Switched to pace. First 3 miles gradually climbing, its a tough hill but…[Read more]

    • Nicely done, Lizzy. You obviously had very different weather to us today – sunny and really very warm over this way. Naughty little monkeys on the golf course 😉 And yes, I think running on tired legs can be a good thing, especially for distance training. Hope you are soon headache-free x

    • Naughty children and naughty watch glad it sorted itself out. Interesting your comment on tired legs Lizzy and Jo’s response, mine feel like lead but I’m told this is how they learn to cope with the miles for long distance so I’m taking it as a plus. Watch those extra miles they soon add up over the weeks, great run here 👍

    • Great tenner there Lizzy-well done! Ahhhhhh, those kids! I think in another life my name must have been Herod!!!!!

    • Good to hear that ploddy legs are a positive sign – lol! Well done on getting through that 10 miler in not the best conditions.

      Not run since the Malverns as they trashed my legs. Not sure if it was the ups or the downs, I obvs need more practice at both 😱
      Luckily coincided with a a few days away on the coast, so was able to do gentle rambles with the spouse instead of annoying them by going off running solo.!
      Did a good brisk 7 mile walk on Thursday with my Essex Way…[Read more]

    • A nice tenner Gael …despite the fizzy water calamity, buckle fiasco and sock disaster 😀

    • Nice chunk of mikles, Gael. Hope that fizzy water didn’t explode, and that you can sort out the buckle ahead of the next outing, and that you managed to avoid the hotspots turning into blisters

    • Firstly how many spouses have you got 🤣🤣🤣
      Another good run (I’ve only just found malvern hills write up sorry) not surprised your legs felt it after that outing! I got fed up with the rucksack I had and bought a camelbak vest it’s so soft and comfy. Pleased that the fizzy water didn’t escape although with the heat building today may have been…[Read more]

    • Fantastic outing there Gael! D-day well managed, perhaps some TLC needed on the legs and knees by the sounds of the little pains and hotspots. Have a fab week!

      GSR W8 R3
      First 10K with Anya and then another 8 by myself. Quite a slow first half, mainly due to the flat farm fields that I ran across on Friday now being freshly ploughed, meaning running across freshly cut stubble instead. Quite a bit of jeffing on this section along with some effing coming from Anya. Not what I had planned 😮 All was ok…[Read more]

    • Lol at the jeffing and effing!
      Well done both, catch with trails is the variety between weed cover, dry ruts, wet mud, etc

    • Nice chunk of miles bagged, even if the terrain was not all entirely what you were expecting 😉 Good feeling to get the long runs done … the big day will be here before you know it! 😉

    • Anya not impressed with the new route then Barry ? 😄😄 cracking set of miles tho looking strong for Glasgow 💪💪

      Just a short one today after a 1.2 km swim and 10k on the bike. Swam at 9.00 and was so hungry after I had to have some breakfast, ham and cheese omelette courtesy of Mr Mac 😊 waited 90 minutes before going out on the bike then straight out for the run. Unfortunately could still feel the omelette sitting in my stomach which didn’t make for a…[Read more]
