How far did I run in 2021?

2021 started just as most of 2020 had ended – with a lot of uncertainty! With Covid cases still rising, would we be able to get back to races this year? Would parkrun come back? I started training for Newport marathon on 4th January, ready for the race on 18th April, but I knew it would be a miracle if it went ahead. It was postponed two weeks later. I was also booked in for the Tewkesbury half marathon and Cheltenham Challenge...

How far did I run in 2020?

What a strange year for running! At the start of 2020, I was signed up to run Brighton marathon in April, Tewkesbury half marathon in May, Cheltenham Challenge half marathon in June, Cheltenham half marathon in September and Stroud half marathon in October. I started training for Brighton marathon on 6th January, in preparation for the race on 19th April. But 2020 was the year of coronavirus. The year when races got cancelled....

How far did I run in 2018?

In 2018, I ran further than ever. It was the first year I’d run three half marathons – Tewkesbury, Cheltenham and Stroud. I got PBs at both Tewkesbury and Cheltenham. I also kept up a regular eight mile run every week, even when I wasn’t training for a half marathon. In previous years, I’ve just done three four mile runs and a parkrun every week. Now I’m doing two four mile runs, a parkrun and an eight...

How far did I run in January 2018?

Now I’m not going to write a post like this every month, but I thought it would be a nice start to my year of running to record my mileage for January. I did vaguely have it in mind to run every day in January, just a mile some days, but I thought it wasn’t sensible as I was still recovering from injury at the start of the month and I didn’t want to put myself back. (Apparently this is actually a ‘thing’...

How far did I run in 2017?

At the start of 2016, I started writing down all of my runs to see how far I ran in a year. I just wrote them down with pen in the back of the diary (I know, how very 20th century). In 2016 I managed a total 0f 705 miles for the year, which seemed pretty good. When I blogged about it, a real life friend said I’d just beaten her and she would have to do one more run in 2017 to beat me. Ever competitive, I said in that case I...
