The theme of my 2016 seems to be: you can’t have it all…

…but that’s probably not going to stop you from trying.

How was your weekend running?

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/the-running-blog/2016/aug/29/how-was-your-weekend-running

Breaking records, running around huge mountains, or nursing an injury? As always, share your weekend triumphs and woes below the line

I’ve been feeling inadequate all weekend. On Friday evening I watched the start of the UTMB on the race website. One of the biggest races on the ultra running calendar, the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc is over 100 miles around Mont Blanc, the course traversing three different countries and scaling 10,000m (32,800ft) of ascent. It’s not a race…

99min half, week 6: Taking stock

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/RZFvG/~3/SH9TGwG0uzw/99min-half-week-6-taking-stock.html

This week I was running through the park when a conker fell from a tree missing me by about a foot. My first thought was ‘that would have really hurt’ swiftly followed by ‘Oh crap, it’s nearly Autumn’.

The Great Eastern Run isn’t the only sporting event taking place in Peterborough in early October. The Palmerstone Arms (also known for being the finish line of my Iron Person) hosts a conker championships which has fallen on the same date …

You don’t have to run a marathon

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/RZFvG/~3/q-NzeEJC2Lg/you-dont-have-to-run-a-marathon.html

When my sister finished her first half marathon, she said to me: “I don’t think I want to do a marathon. Can I just stick to shorter races?”

And, of course the answer to this is, HELL YES!

You make your own rules, chase your own goals and do what excites you when it comes to running. There’s no rule that says you have to do a marathon, or even that you have to race at all. And yet, there is a pressure on runners to go longer and a sense that …

99 min half, Week 5: Flexibility

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/RZFvG/~3/5ZFSSpPYcPY/99-min-half-week-5-flexibility.html

When I write training plans for runners, I ask them for the holidays, weekends away and busy weeks they’ve got in their personal life over the months ahead. Because if you’re gong to tick off all your runs, a bit of forward planning and a realistic approach to run-life balance is needed.

In the run up to Manchester in 2013, one week I did all my runs for the week by Friday morning so I could go away for my birthday for the weekend. I wouldn’t recommend thi…

How was your weekend running?

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/the-running-blog/2016/aug/22/how-was-your-weekend-running

Have you been inspired by the Olympics? As always, share your weekend triumphs and woes below the line

Watching as Eliud Kipchoge powered away in the final few miles to take gold in the Olympic men’s marathon yesterday put me in the mood for a good run. Just for the fun of it – and to celebrate the weather in North London being temporarily better than that in Rio – I had a crack at reaching the 4 minute 55 seconds per mile pace he averaged in his 2:08:44 victory.

Episode 17: What’s your problem?

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/RZFvG/~3/-KGq79W64G0/episode-17-whats-your-problem.html

A couple of weeks ago I asked you to submit a problem for me and my friend Liz to try and help you with.

Thank you so much for your responses. We got more than we were able to answer in one podcast, but we picked three that we hope will resonate most with other people. I hope you find them useful.

We tackle mother guilt during marathon training, missing motivation and returning to training after illness.

99min half training, Week 4: I love running!

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/RZFvG/~3/N8QvC3rau-4/99min-half-training-week-4-i-love-running.html

I love running. Training hasn’t been ace this week but my enjoyment of running this week has been sky-high this weekend.

On Saturday I was doing the Pride 10k with some of my runners. Five of them were running it as their first ever 10K having started in my beginners group 19 weeks ago and progressed from running for 1 minute at a time to running 5k.
