Man down but he's ok now. We'll sort of.
 September 2016 Errrm, melt down again. I thought that 2014's mental breakdown was well and truly sorted. Until one day in September a certain noise made me jump and by God  did I not like that. Hyper alertness was back which was a concern so I decided to e...

Straight to the point.
   Straight to the point, I took action with my sore heel aka plantar fasciitis and had some acupuncture to see if it helps with sorting the problem out. I don't expect miracles and I will settle for any  sort of improvement, a 30% improvement would be awes...

Tholthorpe 10k and it's just a phase.
  It has been some time since my last visit to the 10k race at Tholthorpe in North Yorkshire and it was busier than I had ever seen before which was probably due to there being around 350 entries. Weather wise it was quite good besides the slight breeze whi...
