The Three Days of Harriers Christmas

No, this is not an excuse to burst into song but my take on the festive fun organised by your favourite running club.

This year I wasn’t sure of my Christmas Day availability until the day before, so a 7 mile road/railway track run was in order on the beautiful, sunny spring-like day which was Christmas Eve. A few hours later, a quick text to Nippy and it was ‘game on’ for the Christmas Day cross-country from the club.

Chevin Chase 2018

Having had my nerve root block back in December 2017, 2018 started great with a good training month in January in preparation for the early season races. I managed to score PB’s at Ferriby 10, Dewsbury 10k & Barcelona half marathon, the good training continued up to the East Hull 20 at which I did 2:17.55 something that I’m incredibly proud of having ran most of the race on my own & also managed to produce some of most consistent mile splits ever. Shortly after the 20 things starting unravelling slightly with a bit of leg pain creeping in, after cutting short a planned long run I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to make London mara. Some shorter training runs followed just to keep my legs ticking over with the leg pain coming & going. Anyway I made the start line at London & pulled a 3:20 out the bag again something I’m proud of & so grateful to the club for the place.

November 17th – Winter league handicap race

On November 17th I ran in my first ever handicap winter league race. I’ve been a member of EHH since July but have never been to any club training/pack runs and have only ever been to one hill session and one speed session (both in the weeks leading up to the race) so I didn’t really know that many people. Id met a few at other races I’ve been to with my husband Martin Hardey (it was his idea to sign me up for the winter league).

It’s Running but not as we know it, Jim

Well, it certainly was a busy August for the cunning running known as Orienteering.

It started off with a week in the Lakes, sharing a cottage with four other friends from HALO – Humberside and Lincolnshire Orienteers – for the Lakes Five Day event. Cottage at Glenridding in the Ullswater valley, safely found on the evening of 27th July and snoring Mary installed in her downstairs cubbyhole – er bedroom – leading off from the lounge and an evening meal, with some alcohol, consumed.

Major Stone Half Marathon

I sat down and set myself certain targets for rest of the year after east hull 20. One of these was a sub 80 half marathon so I decided to enter two. The first one being Humber half which I knew was a tough course and then this one which was labelled undulating. I was thinking the target would probably have to achieved at the latter and having missed out by seven seconds at Humber half I was proved right.
