A Gruelling Day!

May 31, 2009

I was up with the birds this morning (06:00) as I had a double training session planned.   The first part was running for 1.5 hours with Bunder around our village and surrounding areas, followed by a shower and a change of shorts, t-shirt and socks and of to Nottingham for my first British Military […]

I had an hour on the eliptical trainer with the 19lb weighted bergen and army boots on Tuesday night.   After that session I took the pack off and headed for the local recreation ground with the military boots on – nice sight when matched with t-shirt and shorts .  I only ran about 2 […]

So I’ve been training on the eliptical trainer (1 – 1.5 hours a week) with my weighted bergen (currently up to 19lb) and doing one weighted run a week of around 4.5 miles.   I’m also doing normal running a couple of times a week.   I’ve so far failed to attend a British Military Fitness […]

Went out for my 1st weighted run today……….   My legs were still tired from yesterdays exertions so it was probably not a good move but anyway, off I set with Bunde and his weighted bergen.  We ran along the canal with the rain gently falling – it’s amazing how much difference the extra weight made […]

On Saturday I added 5lb to my already heavy bergen  http://www.anthonypounder.com/blog/cns!400938DCD454D501!741.entry and hopped onto the stepper machine.   Keeping it on the low resistance setting I stepped it out for an hour until the machine broke.  It felt like the elastic band had snapped/slipped which meant there was no longer any resistance, anyway, I gave up and resolved […]

Weighted Training At Last!

April 23, 2009

So tonight I went out running with Bunde.  We ran without weights for about 5 miles and spent most of the time arranging when and where we are running at the weekend.  We’re planning a 10 miler without weights but the run will be very useful as it incorporates a few absolutely beastie hills for […]

Ashby 20 2009

March 22, 2009

So I got myself a place in the 2009 Ashby 20.  I’d left it late so had to call the organisers on the Saturday night before the race (21:30).  I had an anxious wait after leaving a message on voicemail but they called me back and I was in.  I called Bunde and let him know […]

March 17, 2009

I forgot to post that I managed a 2.5 hour run a couple of weeks ago.  I managed about 15 miles according to http://www.gmap-pedometer.com.  Not too bad but stil not enough I thnk to have me tackle the http://www.ashby20.co.uk……….

9.5 Miles

February 23, 2009

I dropped out of a 2:20 run with Richard o  Saturday morning as he was leaving at 06:15 and I wanted a lie in after a hectic week of late nights, early morning and travelling back and forth to Macclesfield.   I went out on Sunday afternoon and managed a 9.5 miler up and down […]

A steady 44 Minute Run

February 21, 2009

Managed to get out on a run down the canal last Sunday.  It was absolutely freezing and the canal was covered in ducks sitting on top of the ice.   I ran with Mark and we made it to the usual short half way turning point in 22 minutes and returned in the same time.  […]
