sleep deprivation, blisters, ankles, knees and uggg…

Wow, this week past has been slack..yet I feel like I have worked hard… My ankle has given me so much grief that my running has been seriously reduced, and what running I have been doing has been at a much slower pace, to be gentle on my ankle. Then Tuesday I went down for … Continue reading

Bad shoe choices, Trails, New Years Eve Run

Wow!  I have been off line for a bit.  Apologies.   I had network connection problems for 2 weeks, then went overseas on a family holiday, ran an ultra, bad flu, Christmas and chaos, and time has just flown! There is to much water under the bridge to catch up, so I will have a … Continue reading
