Runner’s Log - 19

Miles: 2.5

Park: Hackney Downs

Dogs: A shiny, clipped spaniel derping along with a stick

Notes: I’ve been getting up really early to run before work, sometimes so early that the park gates haven’t been unlocked yet - luckily for me, Hackney Downs doesn’t have gates.

I snoozed on my alarm twice, but then did the fastest run of my training so far, so feeling pretty up on my schedule.

I don’t always associate Hackney Downs with being beautiful like Clissold or the Parkland Walk, but this morning, I was wrong.

Richard Hamilton at the Tate Modern

I went to see the Richard Hamilton exhibition at the Tate Modern.

I really enjoyed it, the work on display spanned decades, and there was a huge range of materials and styles from photocollages, to installations taking up an entire room, to abstract reproductions of toasters.

I liked the pop art phase of his work a lot, I found it very striking, and going around with my dad he could say amusing things like “I remember Davy Crockett [the song] the first time around!” and point it JFKs assassination on a blurred TV screen in the corner of a collage which I wouldn’t have picked up on, fleshing out the context of Hamilton’s work.

Hamilton’s series of tyres really stood out for me, too. Pencil drawings, engineering notations, and reconstructions of their treads through the ages - simple stuff, but visually really interesting. i wanted to stroke them (but behaved!).

Richard Hamilton runs until May 26 and I’d definitely recommend it if you know someone with a membership card so can get in for free.

Miles: ?? Probably between 5 - 7?
Park: Howgills - Bowderdale, up the valley to The Calf, then back down the ridge.




Dogs: NONE. HARRUMPH.
Notes: Going up The Calf is one of my favourite walks round here, but today instead of going up Cautley Spout I went up the Bowderdale Valley - I wasn’t sure I should tackle such a steep incline today, but the views were still super.


I hope to be back on my training schedule early next week when I’m back in the city, but feel like the big races are far enough away to deviate a bit. I used to want to fell run, but I don’t think my knee could hack it.

Runner’s Log - 17

Miles: 4.75

Park: Finsbury

Dogs: A poor dog day, maybe it was the wrong time. A few casual terriers, a really derpy looking King Charles spaniel.

Bone Rating: 2.5

Notes: 

Well, almost… and I felt pretty great for having almost doubled my mileage! It was windy and spitting rain which was nice and refreshing.

I’m still listening to Alexisonfire whilst I run, good tempo.

Miles: 2.5
Park: Clissold

Dogs: Two large hairy ones, a German shepherd, a couple of bull terriers. The mist felt prehistoric, so i almost expected to see a dinosaur. but alas - did not.

Bone Rating: 3.75 for the hairy pair


Notes: I hadn’t been for a run in nearly two weeks because I was monster busy, so am sort of starting again with my training.
It was such a beautiful morning that instead of really concentrating on my running, I stopped to take photographs every hundred metres.



I feel enthusiastic about my training, which is just as well as my races are coming up really quickly. I know it won’t always be this lovely in the mornings, but it helps keep the momentum going when it is this early on in the season.

March 2014

BUSY. The kind of month where I had something written on my calendar every day not including work - but it’s kind of enjoyable to be that slammed every now and then.
The big news was the wedding, and being a bridesmaid for the first time, we also had the hen party and now the weather is picking up, spending more time on the balcony growing some plants.
We won the pub quiz *~three* times, I had my Londonniversary, I drank a lot of coffee.
The year is going so fast already, I can’t believe it.
