A random list of stuff going on

First off... that 50 miles week of running never actually happened - close, but no cigar!

Watch this space, one of these days I will crack it and log a decent volume week and hopefully over 50 run miles - to be honest it has simply got to happen, and ideally soon, if I am going to properly train for my 100 mile ultra event in June.

So a quick list of random thoughts:

  • Liking my new Garmin Forerunner 235 with integrated HR monitor (reading taken from wrist, not HR belt) - need to post a review
  • Considering getting my name down for Level 2 BTF Coaching qualification - later in the year
  • Down for the Malta Marathon, on Feb 29th, a nice destination for a run
  • Considering further marathons - Arun River and Three Forts Challenge
  • Just joined local Virgin Active Gym at Falmer, which has an outdoor pool and some decent Watt bikes. Keen to improve core strength prior to Tri season kicking off - hoping to make good use of facilities
  • Thinking about buying a new bike, based on 'n+1' principle - looking at a Cyclocross / Adventure bike - may enter Paris Roubaix classic sportive
  • Still need to commit to a half-distance (70.3) event for later in the year - few ideas but possibly Stowe Middle Distance race on 3rd July
  • Unable to secure a place in the multiple swim/run challenge (8 runs + 7 swims) in the Lake District - moral of the story 'if you fancy a race, get your name down, sooner rather than later'
That's it for now - back soon - promise
