This will just be a short blog to say that I hope to get back to more blogging (and vlogging) in 2021!
This year hasn’t started the way we hoped. We had been promised that 2021 would be a much better year than 2020. However, I can’t remember January 2020 being as bad as this!
But we must be positive. And we must hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
In many many ways this lockdown is harder than March 2020, not least because we are in the deep mid winter.
We all need to find someway of keeping sane. For me, the things that are keeping me sane are Jasmine, Jesse the cat 🐈 and running…
Although there have been no races to speak of, and I haven’t really competed since November 2019, I do live in hope that my Great North Run entry for September 2020 (that has now been carried over to September 2021) might come to fruition.
I’ve started training with more purpose again since November and I’d like to start documenting things more.
So I’ll be posting more on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
But this WordPress blog was always my way of getting my thoughts down on what it’s like to be trying to run fairly competitively. And I hope to get back to it with some consistency.
I’m also an aspiring YouTuber. Check out my channel here.
I subscribe to many running YouTube channels and I’ve always admired what must go into running a good channel.
I must admit its not easy. Its actually bloody hard work!
But I’d like to improve and I live in hope that I can get better and maybe someone out there may get something out of my videos.
I’m hoping the content will improve, not least because I have a GoPro ordered. Unfortunately its stuck in the EU somewhere and can’t get into the UK.
Who said Brexit brought new opportunity?
Well that’s it for now…
As I said, I will be posting more regularly.
Potential schedule could be a weekly WordPress training update, a weekly YouTube video covering one of my runs and also some videos on running shoes or other running related stuff. For example I’ve just bought recently an Oura ring which is great to track rest and recovery so hoping to review that.
I’ve also been using a Stryd running power meter which is pretty cool. Again, hoping to do a video on that.
Anyway, I hope you are keeping mentally well and sane in these crazy times. I’d love to hear from you wherever you may be.
P.S. don’t forget to check out my YouTube channel – if you could like and subscribe that would be cool!
Til next time, happy running!
