Yeah, OK. I’ve been crap at keeping this up to date. “I know, I’ll write a blog and it’ll be easy to just put some stuff up occasionally and…”… well, I’ve been rubbish!
The last post was 7th July – a week or so after Endure 24, and it’s now almost the end of November. So what have I been up to?

Since starting this blog, I’ve run at least marathon distance over 10 times, run 4 ultras, covered 56 miles in a training run and just this last weekend covered 75 miles in 24 hours. Not bad for 10 months 🙂

And today, I had a moment of insanity…
