This blog has been quiet in 2019 but that doesn’t mean that I have been – in fact 2019 has been anything but quiet. Top running website FastRunning invited me to write blog posts as part of their ‘Fast10 – Class of 2019’ so my writing has mainly been directed to those posts. I’d really recommend checking FastRunning out; if you haven’t seen it all ready. They do a great job of providing news and opinion on a range of running disciplines.
I took a step back from orienteering in 2019 but I’m feeling refreshed and ready to get back in the game. The World Orienteering Championships (the first ‘sprint’ championships in the new alternating schedule) will be a big goal next year. Other than that, I’m looking forward to a winter on the XC and roads and continuing to be happy, healthy and enjoying my running.
My FastRunning blog posts:
Fast10 – Kris Jones – Not really ‘written’ by me, this was a Q&A profile piece to introduce the ‘Fast10’.
An all too familiar story – Written during a frustrating period of injury early in the year.
Add some variety to your running – An attempt to introduce orienteering to a running audience.
Are full time athletes really living the dream – Written after returning from a three week altitude training camp in Albuquerque.
Progress – Late night musings about expectations and taking a step back to appreciate how far I have come (probably my favourite of the lot).
