About Me

I like to think of myself as a returning intermediate. I've taken a break from running for about 10 years now following relocation to the UK and am now getting back into the swing of things - BAREFOOT, except for racing, offroad and sub-zero temperature running in which I wear minimalist shoes.Prior to that I was highly competitive on road, track and cross-country.All the nitty gritty stuff on my barefoot and minimalist running expeditions, as and when they happen, can be found at Link (roll over me to see where I go)---:[ 2013 Training and Racing Plans ]:---Going slower to go faster worked very well for me last year, so I'll be doing much the same this year. I will however be throwing in a fortnightly race-specific training session to try and push things on a bit.I'll continue to document my commute to and from work each day, but will now also be logging my rest days so I can keep an eye on how lazy I really am and see why I take my days off.Oh yes, and lots of PBs are on the cards with the biggest and most important being my first sub-3 hour marathon (so I can qualify for London 2015 using "Good for age"). ---:[ 2012 Training and Racing Plans ]:---This year I intend to spend more time going long and slow and less time concentrating on actual speed work. I think I spent too much time worrying about speed last year, that I may have actually ended up running fatigued most of the time. This year I'm going with a "go slower to go faster" program. Speed work won't be excluded, it'll just be significantly less - ie less than once a week. We'll see how we get on. I'll be sticking with the 2 non-running specific sessions a week like I did last year too.I'm also documenting my commute to and from work each day. I won't be taking HR and GPS readings, just documenting them to see how far I go through the year. After all, every little bit of exercise has got to help.---:[ 2011 Training and Racing Plans ]:---The intention is to concentrate on 5k with a fair few 10ks thrown in. My plan is to follow a varied training program which has at least 2 non-running specific sessions a week, ideally a swim and a weights session.** 1 August 2011 - 30 Day ChallengeOn 1 August I set myself a 30 day challenge to run at least 3km everyday for 30 days and log each run here. Link (roll over me to see where I go)** 13 September 2011 Training Change:Decided to start running a lot longer and slower than I've done before to try and build up a huge aerobic base in preparation for next running season. I've never done this so it'll be interesting to see how much it helps.
