Ah, there you are! Been offline for a wee while due to catastrophic failure of my old computer, R.I.P laptop. However got myself a new one and now very much more mobile!
Since the last time I blogged I've managed to keep building on my base fitness with a view to knuckling down on my Sahara specific training after completeing the OMM (class B) unfortunately, thanks to the b*****d grass in the Elan Valley, came away with a suspected torn calf, tendonitis and a 4 week ban on running. Not a great start to my training! Five weeks on and I'm back running again, trying not to push to hard and risk injury again. My longest run so far has been a steady 12 miles but felt great, no niggles. I'm gonna continue with the cross training and easy pacing but steadily increase the weekly mileage.
I'll let you know how things go!

- I’ve never been one to turn down the chance for adventure, the biggest and most rewarding one so far was starting a family with my (very understanding) wife! We have three kids, George, Gracie and Evie. All of whom put me to shame with their energy and enthusiasm! I've always preferred the chill of the mountains, either climbing up them or snowboarding down them, until I took up running, after a serious on-duty injury, to disprove the ‘shouldn’t, wouldn’t, couldn’t’ attitudes I found many people have. Discovering the fun in exploring places and getting to know them by traveling through them on foot has got me into some interesting events in the past; multi-day mountain marathons and ultras, long distance paths and national trail traverses, 84 miles of Hadrian’s Wall, Welsh 3000 and completing the MDS in 2010. Next up Beacons Ultra and a return to the MDS.
