A run to bluebells

In October I will be running 8km around the Isle of Kerrera, the run is immediately preceded by a 14km bike ride around the same island, which in turn is preceded by a 550m swim across Oban Bay.

I’m pretty happy with my current fitness levels but the Craggy Island Triathlon is something of a step up (I’ve never done an open water swim, and of the several hundred hours of cycling I’ve done in the last year about 6 have been outdoors).

I formally kicked off my training with a run this morning, I didn’t have much of a plan and ended up doing an 8.5 mile out and back run to a lovely bluebell wood I stumbled across in between startling a heron (who in turn seriously startled me) and meeting a lovely horse.



After falling apart at the end of the Bath Half last month (2:07) I managed a PB at the Warwick Half yesterday!

1:58:47, average 9:04 miles, my splits range from 8:42 (the last mile) to 9:35 (mile 11).

Pretty chuffed.


Winter Wolf

The Winter Wolf was so much fun. This video was the winning entry to the Winter Wolf video competition. These guys were in a different wave to me so you don’t get to see me arse-deep in mud (or hear Sarah’s whoops!) but this is the course pretty much as it was for my run.

So. Much. Fun.


I’ve fallen and I can’t get up

This might be my new favourite video on the internet (and that’s saying something).
