This year I was intending to run every day until November. In 2015 you'll remember that we met Ron Hill in Lincoln and were inspired to follow in his epic footsteps by embarking on a runstreak for a year. We both managed 62 days in 2015 - I even PB'd at the Rockingham 10k … Continue reading On runstreaks and running out of steam
I did the Notts 10k by accident, after I ended up not being able to do my home Lincoln 10k and the organisers kindly let me transfer to the Nottingham race 3 weeks later. And am I glad I did! I got a lift into Nottingham from a fellow club runner and we parked easily … Continue reading A hilly surprise! Nottingham 10k Race Review
I wasn't meant to be doing a half marathon this year. After last year's London marathon, I swore off distance running for a while to focus on bringing down my 10k time and somehow discovered a love for speed. In the intervening months I ran 2 10k races and managed to PB at them both … Continue reading It’s a long road to sub 1:50 (the Liverpool Half Marathon)

However, I have noticed an increase in my average pace and my overall fitness: I'm sure my VO2 Max is improving as I've clocked a few … Continue reading Running is less of a chore
I am going to run every day for a year. There, I’ve said it. Its out in the open, I have to do it. The easiest person to break a promise to is yourself especially if you are the only one in on the promise. I will get up at 6am and go for a … Continue reading “Just my luck to pick a leap year” – Dan’s take on our #Run366 challenge.
A few weeks ago, my husband and I had the opportunity to run with Ron Hill, who as many will know has been running every day for over 50 years. Ron is 77 years old, and was a gold medal winner in his time. Ron clearly loves his running, and just speaking to him it became … Continue reading Can I run 366? Yes I can!
I was invited to take part in the Rockingham 10 as part of team UKRunChat, and I jumped at the chance to do what I was anticipating would be a fast 10k for what would be my PB race of the season. I'm generally a trail runner and don't do many races, so I wasnt … Continue reading A windy one!
