Back to blogging after a long break (I actually forgot I had this blog).

Over the 2014 summer I've been injured after tearing the cartilage in my left hip and carrying on running on from Novermber through to the begIIinning of the summer. I got some good results in, a 10k pb in March (38:44) and did my first ultra - the Haworth Hobble in 5hr 30min-ish.

I made my return from injury a few month ago, a stone heavier and not as fit as I was. I started back on the hills with Glossopdale but struggled since the only people that seem to train regularly are the 'fast' runners.

After a few weeks of getting left behind and there seeming to be a lack of proper re-grouping while out, I got pissed off and decided to sack Glossopdale off for fell running and head over the hill to Hayfield and join up to Pennine Fell Runners.

I must say I'm massively impressed with Pennine and the way club fell runs are done. Multiple groups and everyone sticks together, no one is left behind. It's a long round trip for me for the weekly club run but well worth it.

I'm planning my first fell race for Pennine to be Famous Grouse, the race that originally injured me last year. I've also pre-entered Gravy Pud & The Trigger, running for Pennine.

I'm still a member of Glossopdale for the purposes of running on the road and cross country.

Just gotta keep training, get fitter and lose some more weight!
