I'm pleased to announce that Sam's 18 in 2018 has well and truly begun, with the first two events in the bag over the course of this weekend. I'm feeling a tad depressed/guilty about the fact that I seemed to spend most of my weekend away from my family, running mostly in muddy situations, but… Continue reading Eat. Sleep. RUN RUN RUN. Repeat.
It's January, and in true Sam's Plans style, I've got some challenges ahead (mainly in my head) that I am really determined to achieve by 31st December. I mentioned in my last post about my 18 in 2018 idea, and I've started booking some events in. Just waiting for pay day now to book in… Continue reading Sam’s Plans is planning
I'm now 3 weeks into my new eating/fitness plan and I have to say I'm really enjoying it. I'm still trying to adjust to little things here and there, I think my mind has been a bit warped towards all the different diets I've tried in the past, so doing it this way has taken… Continue reading Don’t be a moron.
It's a NO! To the London Marathon that is. Well, for this year anyway. I applied in the ballot, as I have for the last couple of years. I've always wanted my first marathon to be London, but now I'm actually opening myself up to the idea of a different one. Since I started running,… Continue reading Twenty Six Point Two
Oh dear. My running lately has been rather crap. I've either been too ill or knackered to run lately. Had an incident where I had to quit mid run - was getting awful stomach cramps. Managed a 10 mile run about a week and a half ago with a friend. Then nothing. I've had a… Continue reading How’s the training going then?
History OK - a little re-cap first. On 1st July I started my 'run everyday in July' challenge. It had been going really well - I'd had some hard times, but generally it was working out for me. I was doing a few days a week of 1-2KM and then some longer runs on other… Continue reading Day 17
Advance Notice: This post is almost completely about running. I'll get to what an epic week its been in a minute, but first, never one to shy away from a challenge - I've set myself another one! I'm planning on running every day in July! Also known as a 'run streak', I have a few… Continue reading Getting Back On Track
In 2015 I ran 218.80km all year. In 2016 I ran 234.27km all year. So far in 2017 I have already run 114.49km and we are only just 4 months into the year. I have two half marathons this year, plus a ten mile run in October and a few 5ks throughout the summer just… Continue reading 10 Miles
One of the things that Mike always says about me is that I worry far too much and that I over think everything. He knows me so well, because I really do. I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to dwelling on things. I'm shit at decision making. I've been trying to do some… Continue reading I’ll stick with being me
I feel like a proper update is required, my last post was so heat of the moment and angry that I didn't really get a chance to update you (anyone) on where I am now and what's happening in my life. I'm still running. Towards the end of 2015 I stopped completely, I allowed myself… Continue reading Stupid January, Fabulous February?
