Spent this weekend working at the Hellrunner Down South Event. Mega mega cold both days, I was very happy not to be racing as most people didn't really look like they enjoyed themselves. The winners on both days had multiple cuts from having to break the ice getting through one of the water obstacles, not my idea of fun!!

Only four weeks left at work so starting to wrap things up and hand over my work to other people, I've been at Pall for over six years and it will defo be a sad day when I leave, but I guess I have some exciting times ahead.

Looking forward to a couple of lower key training weeks with maybe a cross country next weekend. I want to be fit and fresh for when I get to Kenya as that's when the hard work starts!!

Hopefully I will warm up some time tonight, standing out in negative degrees for seven hours chilled me to the bone, all good fun though and had a good day with Mr Lambert. Toby has just opened an online shop at so have a look if you want some bargains.

Back Again

Been very busy recently, lots going on and lots to sort out.

Had a couple of races recently, Lordshill 10mile, Hampshire League Cross Country and Gosport Half Marathon. Really enjoyed getting back to racing, was good to see some old faces and nothing beats the feeling of winning a race!!

As I think some people already know I am off to train in Kenya at the end of this year, can't wait to go but have loads to do before I do.....

I will try and keep posting and have just purchased a little pocket camcorder so I can video blog when I'm out in Kenya. I think some people might be quite interested to see how the Kenyans live/train (I know I am!!) and hopefully I can learn a lot from them and come back a better athlete. If nothing else I think it's going to be an experience!!!

Anyway for now, over and out...
