Today’s lunchtime run in “flyover video”

(Update 16 Dec 2011: I’ve had to remove the embedded video, as it always autoplays every time anyone visits this website. V annoying!) Here it is on the mapmyrun website: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/55673464 A natty feature courtesy of the folks at MapMyRun. You don’t feel the hills quite so much in bird’s eye mode 🙂

Ten toes running diary – Day one

I recently bought a pair of Vibram Five Fingers running “shoes” after reading about barefoot running on the Britmilfit website. I’m not currently doing Britmilfit, but have done over the last ten years and can thoroughly recommend it. Today I was able to put a last minute client rescheduling to good use, and finally had […]

Running away with my thoughts

Just wondering if Twitter is changing the way I think. Even just thinking that sentence through as I type it, I wonder if I might tweet it, and subconsciously estimate the character count. (54 if you include the full stop, which I may not) I think of my best tweets when I’m running. Well, they […]

Gmaps Pedometer

Brilliant Google Maps hack, just what I’ve been looking for. Work out how far you’re walking, running, cycling etc. using virtual map pins. Turns out I wasn’t far off when I guessed Sunday Circuit at 10km in an earlier post. Using Gmaps Pedometer here’s the circuit at 9.7km (I’d add 300metres to get to the […]

26 miles 385 yards

Good luck to everyone doing the London Marathon on Sunday. It’s been years since I ran a marathon (I did 3 Londons and the Vienna – very different atmosphere and architecture!) – but last night I was moved to tears by the inspirational stories told in the BBC’s run-up to the marathon programme. Steve Cram […]
