Barefoot running naturally

Hello, Well things have been a little on the quiet side here as I recover from my ankle injury.   9 weeks later.  Today was my first run post minor surgery, and all feeling good.  Just in time.  I have a 50km trail Ultra to run in Saturday (3 days away..yikes!) then a steady 20km … Continue reading

Nutrition Nutrition Nutrition, GELS and rooky mistakes.

Well as usual another interesting week behind me. So I had a minor surgery on my left foot with a small stone being removed that was actually tapping against my foot bone.  Luckily it was small and had bypassed muscles and tendons without injury.  Phew.   I also had some damage to my left ankle, which … Continue reading

To be honest, half the time it takes me a few hours to consider the question before I can answer it holistically.  I am a very pragmatic kind of individual, so when people ask me … Continue reading

Another mileage weekend done and dusted..literally…

What an awesome weekend. After last weekend and that epic beach run of mine, I thought I was not designed for this long distance running… My reason for that beach run was four fold…distance milage, time out on feet, strength training, and beating the sand…I thought it had got the better of me. Monday was … Continue reading

Exhausted. Challenged..Zombie state…

Wow. I am running a day late from my normal posting date. But I think I can be excused. Now, I am still doing training for the 6 Inch Ultra.   So need to get strength training up, distance and endurance, and sand skills in.   So muggins here set herself up for a little … Continue reading
