UPDATE! 25 Oct 2010

It is with great sadness that I write this update. On the 25th October 2010 my little sister sadly passed away at the age of 31. She had bravely battled MND for 11 years. She had never given up and had achieved to much even after developing MND, winning the Open University award for achievement to gaining a degree. She will be greatly missed and will for ever be in our thoughts. Love you sis :D

Well where to start, it was all originally done as I was carry to much weight and wanted to loose it. Which I am sure it most peoples story begins, however after loosing the weight I actually started to enjoy running outside. Joined some forums (BCTTT & Runners World), there inspiration and helpfullness has helped me a lot. Now I am also swimming and commuting a couple of times a week to work on my bike! Now since 2011 I accomplished more than I thought I ever would or could. From 5k runs to an Ironman in 2014 and The Outlaw in 2015. In 2016 I am going down a different route, I will be trying Ultra's as you can see from my events I have already entered 3 so far. Now I thought wait a minute I need to have one more motivation and that people is my sister Emma. Since the age of 20 she was very unfortunate and developed MND (Motor Neurone Disease), she is now 31 years of Age. Her health has deteriatated over the years and we nearly lost her last year. My mum had to give up her work and become a full time carer for my sister and my dad takes over the duties when he comes home from work. All the races I do will be in aid of my sister and all money raised will be donated to MND to help raise awareness and research in the disease. Thanks for all your help and enjoy my training blog,

Endurance run

Yeah lunch time run. I really look forward to doing these. Breaks up the day. Today was not the best weather to do the run in. Was snowing and raining. Frozen snot is not an attractive look. The garmin would not get a GPS signal, eventually it did but I could not tell you how far into the run it did.

Today was simples 1 hour run and keep my HR in zone 3 and run to my marathon pace. Yeah that should not be a problem. Started off well run up hills, stairs (yeah I know that is going to raise the HR). I never did the full hour think I was 3 minutes off it. No I never cut the run short, just miscalculated how long the run would take me. Anyway the distance is wrong it said I did 5.65 miles. Hmmmm. Also my Garmin said I never ran to my marathon pace? Find that hard to believe then I remembered I started the watch before the GPS got a signal. So I in turn I was playing catch up DOH!

To round things off I think I am coming down with the cold :(
