Run Tentacles, Run

I’ve been dedicating some time to a new pursuit. Running. Very alien to me initially but I’ve become more and more attached to it. I put up a running page HERE a while ago but thought I’d put up a blog post related to any ‘significant’ runs I’ve done.

Two recent ones are the Stafford half marathon and the Radcliffe 10km multi-terrain.

I dedicated a lot of training time to the half and had an aim to complete in 1:50.  On the day I completely ignored all the good advice to stick to my plan and ended up with 1:41:28, a massive achievement for me. So either I didn’t initially aim high enough or somehow just managed to pull it out the bag.  Here’s the extract from my Nike Running page:

Stafford Half Marathon

Second up is the Radcliffe 10km multi-terrain.  This was tough.  Living in the city centre its pretty flat so to suddenly have to face some short and sharp hills really zaps the energy.  I ended up with a new 10km PB of 47:05.

Here’s a picture from Radcliffe, I don’t run, I levitate!
