Fantastic short run this morning… new PB average pace over this distance and sub five minutes on the third killometre.

Definitely reaping the benefits of having a consistently flat route to run. And it doesn’t hurt that it follows a beautiful stretch of coast line either!

5.1 km – 26.19 min – 5’09” pace


The Next Step…

Hastings Pier

After 16 years, I am leaving The Chalfonts Community College (on Thursday!) to join The St Leonards Academy as Vice Principal.

Jennifer and I are relocating to Hastings to live and work by the sea. I took the photo above on the day I interviewed for the position. The role itself was certainly enticing but this view sealed the deal.

I am very excited about this opportunity. It is the โ€˜next stepโ€™ I have been working towards for some time now.


Great start to the Easter breakโ€ฆ

  • Saturday: 11.25 km – 1:02:17 min – 5โ€™32″ pace
  • Sunday: 11.03 km – 1:00:40 min – 5โ€™30″ pace
  • Total: 22.28 km (13.84 mi) – 2:02:57 min – 5.31 pace

In the zone again and really happy with the consistency of my kilometre splits.

After a couple of weeks, with only intermittent opportunities to get on the treadmill, I was more than relieved to get back out on the pavement this past weekend.

And I am more than a bit pleased with my efforts… particularly given that I stuck an extra couple of kilometres on Saturday’s run:

  • Saturday: 12.11 km – 1:07:41 min – 5’35” pace
  • Sunday: 5.19 km – 28.11 min – 5’25” pace

I was definitely in the zone.ย ๐Ÿš€
