Ow my back

I am writing this to you from my position on the living room floor. I should be helping my girlfriend clean the house and preparing some food for tonight but instead I am horizontal on the carpet. This morning the cold had reduced enough to go to the gym. So of course I went. I…

Damn you cold

So unfortunately all my exciting running plans have been on hold for the last two days. I have been trussed up on the sofa with a pretty severe case of man flu. It is pretty horrible. Stuffy nose, soar throat, chesty cough, headaches and dizziness. All the signs point to either man flu or ebola….

Festive Update

G’day folks. A bit of a delayed Merry Christmas post for you all. I hope you all had a wonderful couple of days. I presume much food was eaten and much booze consumed. I wonder if anyone did any Christmas day runs? I had planned a big country run as I described in my last…

Last week’s workouts – 21st December 2014

Good morning. Last week was extremely productive. It was my longest week which also included my longest run to date. I would prefer to have done more but there were at least 3 nights of festivities which definitely hindered the time spent in the gym/on the roads. However, even in spite of that I managed to bang…

Janathon 2015

Hello everyone. Just a quick note to let you know that I have signed up for Janathon 2015. Great news for my health. Not such great news for my social life. What the hell, it’s January. Except for the odd Arsenal game there is no socialising. Whats Janathon? I hear you ask. Well, its really…

Another race booked

Howdy ho people. I am feeling in a particularly chirpy mood today. I felt a bit stagnated and with no races planned until the end of February I was disappointed that there would be no competitive events for such a long time. Which is why I have booked myself in for the Battersea Park 10k…

I joined a gym

Yes, that’s right. For the first time in quite a few years I have joined a gym. And having signed up for a year long contract it means I will actually have to go. It means there is no excuse and now I actually have to continue this fitness thing. It feels quite daunting to…

Running in sweden

I am writing this post to you from Sweden after just completing a short Monday morning run. We have been here since Friday and my long Sunday morning run turned into a large Sunday morning breakfast. Which was delicious by the way. The week began well with my tempo run round the streets of London….

I ran a half marathon

Ok, so it took me 6 days, 3 runs and a total time of 2 hours 3 minutes. So it’s not really at all impressive. However, it is probably the most running I have done in a week, ever. I am writing this blog halfway through a the week but it should even itself out eventually. Last week…

Rebirth

Hi guys, Less than a week later and I have made my decision. I have decided to rename this site Run With Faust. Now that I am healthy and on the recovery path I would like to move on to new things and to forget about Ulcerative Colitis. I thought about starting a new blog but…
