Injury update – it’s not good

In Bollocks, Freeletics, Injury problems by All This Running Around7 Comments

It’s now almost two weeks since I was last able to do a Freeletics workout, and to say I’m pissed off about it would be an understatement. It’s a difficult situation. Well, it isn’t. It’s a very simple situation. But it’s made difficult by my constant fretting that all my good work so far is slowly coming undone and by …

Back from the wilderness

In Born To Run, Injury problems, Life by All This Running Around2 Comments

Yes, I’m a bit like the blogging equivalent of that man in America who disappeared for 27 years. Except it hasn’t been 27 years. And I have barely committed any burglaries.

Original Luna Sandals – a review

In Barefoot running, Born To Run, Injury problems, Luna sandals, Minimalist shoes, Review by All This Running Around1 Comment

Okay, so I’ve had my Lunas for a while now and clocked up a good few hundred miles on them. Time to give you my (largely worthless and entirely pointless) opinion on them.

ULTRArace.100 – Part Two, the final checkpoint

In Cotswold 100, Injury problems, Races, Running, Ultramarathons by All This Running Around7 Comments

Note: again, if you want to see some pictures of the event, use the following link: Look out for Kevin Doyle, the eventual winner. He’s number 16. I’m not a morning person. But that’s ok, because while 2.15am is technically the morning, it’s still very much the middle of the night. So when the alarm went off after me grabbing about …
