Too many combacks...

I'm now actively working towards having a bash at the Frog Graham Round this summer and with that in mind the running training must start again somewhere.

today was that day and whilst the distance (or the feeling) wasn't anywhere near to where I'd like to be, the pace was acceptable: walshr10's 0:18 h Running Move

Tomorrow is another day...

The Long Road Back

Well its been some time since my last post as I've been out of action recovering from a routine procedure that meant I couldn't run (or train) for some time, but I'm trying to get back to it now.
Today was my first run, and boy did i struggle!
I have taken this opportunity to try and change my running style from a heavy footed heel-strike to a forefoot-strike to try and become a more efficient, faster runner. I will keep you all posted on my progress in future posts.

Saturday Morning Metafit

Jo and I dragged ourselves out of bed this morning and made it to Saturday morning Metafit held by Julia Norton at Higher Road in Urmston.
Thanks to Jo for motivating me to go :)

Dovedale Dash 2013 Cancelled

Unfortunately due to lots of rain and poor weather the 2013 Divedale Dash has been cancelled
One of the car parking fields that houses 300-400 cars on the day is completely sodden and the river levels are just too high to safely race
So disappointed as I've not raced at Dovedale since I was little
There's always next year!

Working away

Well I'm not sure how much training I'll be fitting in this week as I'm working away.
My week started at 4am sneaking out of the house trying not to wake everyone. The drive down to Norwich from Manchester was made all the worse after the country was hit by heavy rain and gale force winds. 
After 5 hours of driving I arrived safe and sound ready to deliver 3 days of software training!
This Thursday my amazing wife will undertake a fire walk to raise money for a very good cause https://www.justgiving.com/Joanne-Walsh100/
We are also both looking forward to running the legendary Dovedale Dash this Sunday  too report and data to follow...

The Frog Graham Round

The Frog Graham Round

The Frog Graham Round is a running and swimming challenge that was created by Peter Hayes from inspirations from the classic Bob Graham Round but with an added twist.

Along with covering just over 40 miles and ascending and descending 15750 feet, the competitor must swim across Bassenthwaite Lake, Crummock Water, Buttermere and Derwent Water before finishing where it all started in Keswick.
