3 Peaks Weekend

Earlier in the year Ali put a post up about the EHH 3 Peaks weekend away .  Last year it clashed with Scarborough and Haltenprices 10K’s so unfortunately I didn’t go coz I had entered Scarborough  but this year I was determined to be there  . Now I don’t often run further than 8 miles and have only “run” over 20 miles once in my life and that was July 2016 when I attempted to run the 3 Peaks. I had previously walked the full route many times before with a fastest time of 8 hours 5 mins .   My run time from 16 months ago was 6 hours and  45 mins  and that day was dry and sunny , but I had taken the compleatly wrong route up Pen y Ghent . I had decided to going up the “runners” route instead of my normal “walkers” one  …  Unfortunately I went up neither and just went the long way up , adding about a mile and half to the distance . So this year was determined to not get lost  …….

Exorcising the Demons – Cilck ‘Em Inn 5 mile & Escrick 10k

I think it’s fair to say that most of us experience highs and lows in running, all relative to our individual ability, so I’ve tried to keep a level of perspective on what has been a very topsy turvy few months for me. The low point of this, at least I hope it was as low as I’ll get, was the Newark half marathon, in which, even though it was a flatish course, loaded with pb potential, I had a horrendous run.

The Hull Marathon 2017

This training block had been the most sustained I’d done,constant high mileage and regular workouts on fatigued legs, strength work,speed work and recovery all melted together and topped off with a diet that had left me the lightest since I was a teenager meant I was in the best shape of my life going into this race.
