#SGOnTheRun Day Twenty: The Wall

21 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 3min Walk, 3min Easy, 3min Brisk (Repeat 7 times) My sedentary normality and the artisanal aspect of my recent alternative lifestyle choice are colliding of late.

#SGOnTheRun Day Nineteen: Respiration

16 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 40min Easy Inspiration. I fill up on a night sky barely kissed by stars; an emptiness waiting for ideas. Deep as I breathe in there is more of the night than I can hold captive. In me, galaxies reside, innumerable orbits around my red sun, contained in universe defined by my body. Heaven […] … more »

#SGOnTheRun Day Eighteen: Cockney Rhyming Slang

16 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 2min Easy, 20min Brisk, 20min Easy I feel as though I’m on the verge of a relapse. I have not wanted to run at all, all week. I have managed to maintain, but as thinly as the Lycra in my running tights holds up my rear end and undercarriage. My reveries are platters […] … more »

#SGOnTheRun Day Seventeen: Big Tings Gwidarn

13 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 5min Easy 15min Brisk, 20min Easy Call me a moderately paced cliché but I had my first “Rocky” moment today. Spat out by the melancholy maw of Tooting Common, off the tip of a toothless grey tongue and onto the lip of Garrard’s Road. Now stuck in one spot, the fanfare began. My she […] … more »

#SGOnTheRun Day Sixteen: Groundhog Day

10 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 3min Walk, 3min Easy, 2min Brisk – Repeat 6 times Today was my ‘Groundhog Day’. Like Gang Starr I was in it ‘Just To Get A Rep’. To be more exact I was trying to complete the repetitions recommended by our training regimen. Trying to be interesting about repetition is as about as […] … more »

#SGOnTheRun Day Fifteen: Equal Rights

09 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 35min Easy I really hurt her. Because I was careless. I thought I knew better and had her in my pocket. She thought differently and I had stopped paying attention. The music that had brought us together, the soundtrack to our relationship came to an abrupt ending. Suddenly my telephone was sliding violently […] … more »

#SGOnTheRun Day Fourteen: Rhythm Thief

08 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 5min Easy, 15min Brisk, 15min Easy Trying hard to run briskly steals rhythm. The paradox is that in trying to make haste one employs a variety of techniques, ploys and gambits in order to keep in time. One such strategy is to find symbiosis with music – the raison d’être for this blog. […] … more »

#SGOnTheRun Day Thirteen: You’ve Been Flirting Again

07 Feb 2013

Training Tip: 10min Easy, 15min Brisk, 10min Easy Lately vegetarianism has been flirting with me. I may be attempting to be race ready for the 9th March, but this is a heavy handed and unwanted attention. As previously reported I am already under the Clementine oppression of oranges. Now it seems a coup d’edamame is […] … more »
