About Me

I first started running in 1983, when at 38 I realised that I was pretty unfit. I've nearly always trained alone. I did my first race in 1985 - a 10K. I've done a couple of Half-M's, and then the Dublin Marathon at age50. Since then I've done very little regular running. At the end of 2007 I started running again on a small scale just before I became semi-retired. I'm now 68 - old enough to know better!

Update Sept 2009. I hope to make my targets in next 12 months :- Sub-24min.5K; Sub-50 min.10K; sub-1hr 50min.HM. I also hope to improve my WAVA rating, and reach 70% for at least 1 distance. Update Sept 2010 - I didn't manage to achieve any of my targets in the 12 months, but I am hopeful of achieving some sometime!

7th October I achieved 2 targets tonight (PTL) - sub 24 minute 5k and a WAVA over 70%; in fact I did the 5k in 23:26 and got WAVA score 70.93%.

Update January 2013 - Since June 2011 I had a problem in left leg with acute pain at times; it was finally diagnosed as Spinal Stenosis, and after about 21 months of pain, Amitriptyline has made me virtually pain-free. I hope to achieve a 70% WAVA again, but it will take a long time to get back to where I was.

Current Status

I'm an old wrinkly now. I had a thigh/calf/hip problem since late June 2011; after seeing the chiro, 2 consultants,having x-rays and physio, it was given a name - Spinal Stenosis. Amitryptiline has at last made me pain-free.
