An update on ultra marathon training and Kim and I sneak in some bouldering by the sea as spring hits Wales.
The Beast from the East is freezing the UK and bringing it to an icy standstill. Which can only mean one thing - has anything frozen enough for us to go ice climbing? There's one way to find out!
I haven't written a blog entry in a while - I've become very used to talking to a GoPro and putting together vlogs. I think I like being able to show things at the same time as talk about things.
Right now I'm sat with my feet up, with my right calf on an ice pack.
For the last couple of years I've been struggling with injuries affecting triathlon training and limiting how much I can do. I think the problems stem from my lower back, and probably from getting older as much as anything else. This year I have made a change as a result - I'm going to try and run some ultra marathons instead of race triathlon. These will be big but different challenges. I think I can do this because a limited stride length has been causing my problems and for ultra running I need to run slowly, with a shorter stride length. It might work?
More miles, but the sun is out. Is the rock warm?
Ultra run training update and we get pushed to go geocaching somewhere completely new but very close to home.
Ultra marathon plans are settling in, and I'm going to need your help. Also popping out to North Gower for a cold, evening geocache.
Laying down the miles for summer challenges, and rushing to find a geocache I've tried to find before.
Wet in Wales, but that's no reason to not get outside.
Back to the long run after the calf strain and out searching for geocaches in Copperopolis.
Looking for somewhere new and interesting to go and hunt for geocaches we heard about an abandoned railway line, with tracks still in place and a bridge over the motorway. Let's go and find it.
