Another busy weekend of running for the SJs culminated in a trio of events on Saturday and Sunday. We start with Sarah Jones, who took part in the Richmond Riverside 10k on Saturday, as she recalls….

Manchester Marathon – Gaynor Falconi smashes her target at the northern marathon

Manchester Marathon – Gaynor Falconi smashes her target at the northern marathon

8th April 2018 I ran my first Manchester Marathon. It wasn’t my first marathon distance race, I’d done five London Marathons in the past but my last marathon was nine years ago. In the intervening nine years I had lost my love of running and my focus instead had been on building my career, getting […]

Cranleigh 15/21

Cranleigh 15/21

As my pre-London longest run I decided that Cranleigh 21 seemed a good idea and duly entered a couple of months ago. What I didn’t realise at the time was that, not only was it Mother’s Day (ah well a Mother’s Day treat to myself – 21 miles of peace and quiet!), but it was […]

Fix!”) to get the free entry to the […]

The Marathon Training Camp – Part 2 Saturday

So at the end of February our annual ‘weekend away’ took place and this year the emphasis was on long distance and marathon training. I thought I’d write a review of the weekend, given that I organised it and everything (not biased). The review is split into 3 – so this is 2/3 (Saturday) Saturday […]

The Professor’s Corner: It takes two to tempo

The Professor’s Corner: It takes two to tempo

Hello my lovely jogging friends! Change is everywhere it seems at the moment. With the new running schedule I felt it was also time to relocate Prof towers to somewhere a little closer to the club (yes my life revolves around Sandhurst Joggers). The Professor is much like a grumpy old man and hates change. […]
