I’m not a hobbit! Ok so blog opening sentence malfunction, yes I don’t live in a hole in the ground, I mean how many people actually do? I’m not that short and though my feet may be hairy I tend to wear shoes (do trainers count as shoes?). All of this I hope is blindingly … More A Running Journey
I’ve been thinking this week again about democracy and how it seems to have lost it’s way in the UK at the moment. Last week I wrote about how the media found it easy to manipulate voters by giving them half truths, down right lies and filtering information that they received to suit their own … More Moving Parliament
I was reading through slow runner girls blog this week and we got chatting. Slow runner girl is a bit of a hero of mine(don’t tell her nobody needs that kind of pressure), she has taken heart rate training to levels I cannot even imagine. I tried training to heart rate last year and managed … More Mental Running
OK so my last ‘political’ post was about what was wrong with democracy in the UK. I moaned about the lack of choice people have when voting.

The primary objective for any political party seems to be to gain power. Sod having any ethics, ideology or proper long term … More The trouble with democracy
So far the summer of fun has been going well. After a shaky start I have entered and run a couple of 10k’s and got some consistent sub 50 minute times. One thing missing though has been a jolly good day out with friends style run. Well that’s been taken care of now. Last weekend … More Bewl some fun for the Summer of Fun.
Thanks Parliamentary Labour Party. No I mean it, thanks for handing the country over to the Tories. The one thing this country really really needed at the moment was to be given no alternative but to accept the same status quo they had just voted against. Seriously, what is your major malfunction? In the last … More Thanks Parliamentary Labour Party
The summer of fun continues…. Having learnt my lesson I booked a few races just to make sure I would not slack off again. This one the Heathfield 10k was exactly the sort of race I had been looking for. It was the right length, and it was in the league that my club runs … More Heathfield, more summer fun.
