Dark mornings and even darker evenings at this time of year. If cycling is your passion do make sure you can be seen.

A first for me this week, seeing the sun rise in the east and set in the west on the same day.

In this beautiful sunny weather how about coastal rock climbing? (something’s not quite right here) Anyway, the fitter you are, the more you can take on!

So, you’ve done a load of training but what next? Consider doing a “Park Run” or enter a local race. Get in touch and we can tell you what’s happening in your local area.

A morning run in The Devils Punchbowl today turned into a rescue mission, assisting a runner with a suspected broken ankle. If you are out on your own then take a phone and ideally, tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return. Happily, Alex, was taken to hospital and found out that it was a bad sprain.

A very misty Common greeted me on today’s morning run, but great to see the hardy wild ponies toughing it out.

Heather on the turn but still looking good in September. Great running through it.

Never miss an opportunity to train. My wife was away trying on shoes and the barbell caught my eye.
