“Running should be a lifelong activity. Approach it patiently and intelligently, and it will reward you for a long, long time.”

My first race of the season is now 5 weeks away, a cheeky 10k trail and road run around Bamburgh, Northumberland, UK. I am really looking forward to it.

I have been trying to do a bit more trail running in my training. It’s impossible to do so, on my weekday runs due to the dark nights. However I have been exploring the trails and public footpaths around my home town at the weekends. I cannot believe how many there are.

It was good fun exploring, and I had no idea where I was going or where I would end up. At one point I ended up on a Horse Racing training track. I had visions of a farmer chasing me on a Quad bike with a shot gun, shouting get off my land. Fortunately I spotted another public footpath, jumped a fence and escaped the private land.

The conditions were tricky, snow, ice and frozen mud. However my new Vibram Fivefingers Spyridon’s handled the conditions perfectly. In fact the only time I nearly hurt myself was on a pebble when I was running on a normal path on the way home!
