As I sit here writing I can see the whiteboard which serves as my three week training plan. Across the top is my targeted minimum intake for carbs and protein, a new addition. We’re looking at 116g for protein, 340g carb. It’s just one of several avenues that I’ve explored to try and get rid… Continue reading Don’t Call it a Comeback, etc.
It is the month of lists. Christmas lists. Best of the year run downs. And this year, seeing as it's a '19 and all, we'll be seeing a lot of best of the DECADE lists. This, I think, is impossible. There is no way that we're about to exist in a different decade to 2010,… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 08/12
When I sat down to write my last Runners Corner post on this blog, I found myself suddenly booking a last-minute 10k at the Silverstone Racetrack in Northamptonshire as I discovered its fast approaching start date when I scoured the race listings for the Race Focus section. This time, I don’t think I’ll be doing… Continue reading Silverstone, Farah Back on Track, and a Motor Circuit Marathon.

It’s the first of that magical month of December. Sick of it all yet? Have you already heard Last Christmas 87 times? Are you wishing for… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 01/12

To him, they were - in the words of biographer, professor, and all-around Dickens… Continue reading A Christmas Carol
The news is a bit grim at the minute. I don’t think we should ignore it, but we don’t need to carry the weight that the tumultuous world throws on our shoulders all of the time. Sometimes we need to shrug it off and delve down deep into a blanket of stuff. So as we… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 24/11
Welcome to the Runners Corner of this little blog of bits and bobs. Mostly this is a place for, you know, nerd stuff. Books, films, and games. But when I’m not sat on my skinny arse in-doors sucking up some hot fresh content, I’m out running. Because everyone needs something to keep them sane. Every… Continue reading Rutland Night Run, A Barefoot Bonanza, and Desert Dedication.
Photo by Franck V. on Unsplash Good morning. It is Sunday so I am here to talk about some stuff. All the stuff that I have found to be good and interesting enough to talk about. All the stuff that fits nicely into the four categories that I decided that I wanted/could be bothered to talk about on… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 17/11
With Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman soon to be upon us I figured now would be as good a time as any to feature ol' Marty on Classically Lacking. With Joker still so near in my rear view, there was really only one film to be chosen. The King of Comedy. Released in 1983 to positive… Continue reading The King of Comedy
Two Sunday's in a row I've had no work so I'm once again coming to you live from my post-run Sunday seat, rattling out a steady stream of stuff that I've enjoyed, so that now you can too! Second hand books, RPG's, grimy rap, experimental pop, big budget TV, independent film... What more do you… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 10/11
