The One With a Trip To Dublin

Two weeks have flown by so quick that I have genuinely forgotten about the blogging side of A Runner’s Ramble. Continue reading “The One With a Trip To Dublin”

The One With Sore Legs

Six. Weeks. To. Go.

I can’t believe how fast time has flown since and how soon I, along with the other Team Totum-ers, will be hitting the streets of Sunderland seeking that elusive personal best.

But before I start, I have a slight confession. I reverted back to playing football. Continue reading “The One With Sore Legs”

The One With The Bog

The windup to the Siglion Sunderland 10km is ON!

I absolutely love it when the time comes to get the speed endurance in the legs and also, get that sensation, when you know that you can run the distance needed within a time that’s acceptable – of course, like every runner at every event, we always look for that PB. Continue reading “The One With The Bog”

The One With The HIIT

It’s strange to think how, one day, you’re so far past the point of tiredness, that you can barely peel yourself off the sofa and other days, you’ve gained energy out of nowhere – this is exactly how last week has been! Continue reading “The One With The HIIT”

The One With The Best Week

I genuinely think that, if you have a good day or week, it reflects in your training, likewise if it’s been a struggle.

Last week, I experienced one of the best weeks, I’ve ever, ever had. Although it’s been a tiring one, I’ve not stopped smiling as each day got better and better. Continue reading “The One With The Best Week”

The One With One Run

Like the result of Storm Doris up here in the North East, my week of running was very, very dry.

I fancied a bit of down time and, as I had some time off, me and Emma decided to look after the dog, Patch (not ours!). If you followed my Instagram, I ran nice little story on it when I took the lad out for a long walk! Continue reading “The One With One Run”

The One With Picking New Runners

The sensation of buying a new, fresh pair of runners is, without a shadow of a doubt, the greatest feeling…ever…period.

It’s like Christmas, Easter (all day chocolate binge, ha’way!) and your Birthday all rolled into one, it’s even better if you’re not the one paying for them – although, that can be rare these days!

As Big Ben struck at the midnight hour, to lead us into the year of 2017, I knew, not then of course as I was fast asleep, that this would be the year I need a new pair of long distance runners. I’ve had the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus’ for two/three years now and, although they’ve served me well, I fancy the change.  Continue reading “The One With Picking New Runners”

The One With Country Roads

Feels like I’ve only just popped out a blog as I try get back in track with a weekly post – it’s been an interesting week, however.  Continue reading “The One With Country Roads”

The One With New Beginnings

Man, I have really been lacking in the blog scene but there’s a reason!

You may or may not have seen my posts about buying a house with Emma and moving – an incredibly exciting but exhausting time, of course! Thankfully, it wasn’t as stressful due to the fact we had incredible support – thank you, you know who you are!

With this, running has taken a backseat for the working week and limiting myself to weekend running. Not that I’m complaining, any run is better than no run, isn’t it?  Continue reading “The One With New Beginnings”
