Product Review – Running Shoe Nike Pegasus 33

NIKE Pegasus 33

The shoe I was using for the last two years was beginning to feel a little hard on the sole, it was time to change. I wasn’t looking for anything expensive, so I decided to seek out a newer version of the shoe that I started running in first.

The Nike Peg Continue reading

Start using #GetSomeoneRunningSA

#GetSomeoneRunningSA I recently came across a May 2015 post on this hashtag #getsomeonerunning, having recently gone through the experience of getting someone to start running I was taken by the concept. This concept was the brainchild of Bill Strickland from Bicycling who wanted to get more people riding bikes, you can read it here, but it can work for any sport really, so why not running?

Race Review : Deloitte Pretoria Race 2017

Race ReviewThese are my thoughts on the race…

Early Sunday morning for us again… I think our bodies are getting used to it now. The road to the start of the race was unusually misty, this just meant us being a little more cautious on the road to the start.

We arrived with 30 minutes to spare.

Start of the race was a little chaotic today. Just before the start of the race, runners, haven’t seen it at the cycling events, but yes at swimming, we want to make sure we’ve removed any extra liquids from our body. Around the 10k holding area there Continue reading

Race Review : 4 in 1 – Bidvest / Midmar / BestMed & Dischem Cycle for Sight

Race ReviewThese are my thoughts on the race…

The last three weeks have been rather active for me, and to be honest I’ve loved it!

First I ran the Bidvest 10k in Rietondal on the 4th Feb, it was my first time running it and totally enjoyed the experience. The route was a great mix of hills and down runs.

The weekend of the 12th Feb was my second attempt of the Midmar Mile. Although my time was slower than in 2016 I totally enjoyed the swim.

2017 Fitness Goals

Fit Dad

The first month of 2017 is almost over and I haven’t yet updated my blog.

2017 is going to be my “comeback” year! Yes, after not being extremely active in 2016 compared to 2015, let’s just say that I can see the effect this had on me physically.

To make sure I didn’t come up with excuses, last year I started entering races I wanted to take part in this year. With the entering of races comes the need for training.

I want to be able to finish the races comfortably and not struggle through them.  Continue reading

Race Review : Dis-Chem 21 2017

Dischem21 2017These are my thoughts on the race…

Having learnt from last year, I was up at 3am and on the road by 4am so that I could secure a parking close to the start of the race.

I’ve run this race three years in a row now. The first one I ran with Darren, the second although alone, I had travelled to the race with mates, so technically as it is a 21.1km race only, excluding the Fun Run, I wasn’t alone.

This year my third Dis-Chem 21 I drove myself and basically ran without any mates around, and found it boring! I know you’re on a mission, but for me, I realised that having a mate to talk during the 21km is a bonus!
