Rachet’s Rundown

This little run down is actually from last week so I apologise for the lack of posting, however I had a lazy weekend and did not run one step. For. Four. Whole. Days.  Shock, horror – I won’t be making a habit out of it! Another good week on the training front last week, a good speed session…

The Hobble Trail run

On Sunday myself and Zoe made our way over to galleywood for the hobble trail run, there was a 6 and a 12 mile option. This was my longest run since Saltmarsh and I have to admit I felt it 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m not going to lie, as I was in the queue at the start…

Rachet’s Rundown 

It’s been a tough week training wise, mostly due to the fact I’ve made the decision that it’s time to start putting some more effort in. If I’m keen to get some speed back I need to do the training to get myself there, so its time to do just that. I know I’m a…

Cross Country 53-12 Harwich

This Sunday was the second of the 53-12 cross country runs at Harwich. It was a fresh but bright morning, pretty good running conditions although I did feel the wind go straight through me. I was glad to have had some rain the previous day to give the ground a bit of a softer feel…

The Saltmarsh Toe

It’s off 🤢 the nail is off 🤦🏻‍♀️ I don’t think it’s ever going to be the same again. It’ll always be known at “The Saltmarsh Toe”. I’m quite traumatised by the hour I’ve just spend trying to smarten it up in preparation for the weekends running. I just thought I’d trim my nails back…

Cross Country 53-12 Writtle

This Sunday was the first in the 53-12 cross country series at Writtle.  Having done this last year it was great to start the season off again, with a bit of a later start and with the clocks going back it meant I got a much needed lay in. We got parked and met the rest…

Return to Parkrun

Getting back to parkrun this weekend felt great, although it’s only been about 4 weeks since my last visit it felt more like 40! I love the atmosphere of a parkrun and really enjoyed the run round with Tina and Jo, we had a good chat whilst still working hard (Aaron it was no coffee morning! 🙄)…

Running cheats – RW November 2017 Issue

In the November issue of Runners World we saw an article regarding running cheats, this has caused quite some upset amongst the running community.  The journalist has highlighted some runners who have been caught cheating in the past and, I believe is trying to get to the bottom of why people would do this.  The article…

Water of Life Half Marathon / 10k

This year our club race was the Water of Life Half Marathon, there was also a 10k option available. It was an early start to travel from Tiptree to Marlow with the coach ready to leave at 6:15am, to be honest this didn’t really bother me as I quite like the school trip feeling it…
