An Update

I’ve been fairly quiet on here recently, partially because work has meant I haven’t had as much time as usual to write anything and partially because the number of races I would usually run have been cut short.

I’ve been finding my way back into my speed and training is going well. One marathon in January eased me back into the distance (and I’ll write a recap at some point), followed followed by an attempted second marathon which I had to abandon after 10k. A trapped nerve in my foot made my entire right foot go entirely numb and that plagued me for the next week.

A couple of races were cancelled due to various storms crashing over England and before I knew it I was at the end of February. I have two half marathons and one marathon coming up in March, which takes me up to my wedding and honeymoon at the end of March. When I’m back in April, full on marathon and ultra season begins! Yippee!

In the meantime, I’ve bought myself a pair of customised Nike Infinity Runs and a 360 degree camera for race filming. Above it my first test of both, produced in a hurry so far from perfect. But it was good to be out filming again.

Garmin Forerunner 645 Review

It’s finally here! My first gear review. I’ve worn the Forerunner 645 for over a year now, from 5ks to 100ks so I’ve had plenty of time to put it through its paces. Click the link here or select it from the drop down menu under “Gear Reviews” above to read my thoughts.

My new Forerunner 945 is arriving today, which promises greater battery life, advanced running metrics and on board, full colour maps. I’ll post a review of that once I’ve had the chance to test it thoroughly.
