Stubbington 10k race recap

I ran my first race of the year today: Stubbington 10k. I’ve run it four times previously, so I knew what to expect. I got up early and went co collect some friends: Rodolfo, Khalid and Khalid’s wife and son. I had been worried about the drop in temperature and Read more…


Illness stopped play :-(

After a great start to January, it didn’t take long for things to go downhill. On Wednesday lunchtime, my work colleague, Sarah, and I jogged down to Southampton Common where we met a friend from Tri Club, Rob. The plan was to do an intervals session, which was just as Read more…

Team soas patch

It’s been another hectic day, although I managed to leave after just 11 hours in the office today. This meant that yet again I’ve missed Friday evening swimming. However, I’m so tired that I’m not sure I’d have enjoyed it anyway. Overall, it’s been a rest day (part from six Read more…
