A Sound to Behold
Wednesday, 5 June, 2013 This is definitely not about my voice, which is probably a sound you'll be keen forget if your name is Angela Prior!  After one hour and twenty three minutes of listening to me drone on about imperfections in the road surface, it’s a wonder that I wasn’t gagged as soon as the blindfold came off!

Small Steps
Tuesday, 21 May, 2013 We are edging closer to the Bupa London 10,000 race day and things seem to be going along nicely, but no training plan goes without any minor hiccups of course... Read more >
It Does Make a Blind Bit of Difference

The Show Must Go On
Tuesday, 19 March, 2013 Our mind is an incredibly powerful tool without precedent. Habitually, when your mind communicates a demand on your body, it duly obliges... Read more >
"If You're Wearing Shorts, Then So Am I!"
Tuesday, 12 March, 2013  I remember when I was a (delightful) child; I would crave the falling of inches upon inches of fresh snow; it simply means playtime when you have nothing else to worry about... Read more >
Boom, Blast and Ruin

The Chains Are Off
Monday, 25 February, 2013 Drip, drip, drip, drip.  Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out.  Bu-bum, bu-bum, bu-bum, bu-bum.  I am tired, shattered, but my mind will not shut down... Read more >
The Pinnacle of Exhaustion
Wednesday, 20 February, 2013 Most of the time, our mind and body work in tandem.  Your brain will tell your body, 'Yes, I do want another Cadbury's Creme Egg', (hard to ignore them at this time of year) and your body will readily oblige by stuffing another one in quicker than you can say 'Happy Easter'!  Read more >

Running is a Rollercoaster
Monday, 14 January, 2013 You’ve had your pre-run snack, you’ve got your kit on, the Garmin is set and the trainers are on.  All that is standing between you and the great outdoors now is the front door.  Oh, and that foot injury!
