Shameek Ashley Farrell: #makeitcount →
official-shameek: I just finished a 12.4 mi run with a pace of 7’28”/mi and a time of 1:33:06 with Nike+ GPS. #nikeplus Those are my stats from my run today. I ran from Hackney Wick to Canary Wharf, along the Riverside path, back through Canary then to Mile End and finally back to Hackney Wick. 12.4 miles. I have… He isn’t human. True stories!
I went for my first swim last night!
What I did is below, this book is great because I can take it to poolside with me! Buy it here. It was made for triathletes…I just keep on losing my count when swimming though, so having a plan right next to me does help! First swim of the year in the bag, feels good. Runkeeper.

Are More People Running In London Now?
This has been on my mind a lot lately. I run through the City and notice so many people doing the same thing. It makes me wonder whether more people are running now or am I just noticing them more now because I run? I've been running steadily for more than a year and it just seems like more of us are on the road. I mostly see people out in the morning which makes sense I suppose, I love my bed too much though to run before work.
I know there's a lot of factors to consider, travel prices, the media's focus on celeb bodies, the Olympics and so on. Ideally I would hope that there are more people running in London and that they're making a lifestyle change!
That's the first week of training done!
It consisted of some cross training, two 3 mile runs with a 5 mile run inbetween them on Wednesday. A rest on Friday and then a 5 mile pace run on Saturday followed by a gentle 10 miles on New Years Day. It was a week that saw me cover 26.7 miles on the road running. Interesting how my first week of training has me cover that distance that I’m going to be working so hard to get to in a...

A note to those coming to the London meet-up
countdowntooz: If you are not tube savvy then can I advise you to either buy a travel card (daily or weekend) or top up an oyster card (it can be done online). It saves you so much money - a single is Zone 1 is £4!!!
Here I am.
When you click that read more below you’ll see how I’m looking these days. What are you waiting for?! Do it, it might be a bit surprising. Here is Nathaniel Cole, weighing in at 12 Stone and 11 Pounds. This is me now. I take these pictures to keep a note of where I am heading. Right now, I don’t like it. There’s so much room for improvement there! Anyway. I take these...
A New Edition To My Desk!
I wanted a coaster. But I didn’t want a boring coaster, I only needed one after all. I thought I would could find something I like on amazon and boy oh boy I did! Say hello to Maurice. Another bearded companion for Alan. Maurice is a guinea pig that looks like Borat in a Mankini. Now you can see why I had to have this coaster. Buy it here.
Lets Catch Up From Monday!
On that day I said I would go on a long run. Did I?! Of course I did! I couldn’t let tumblr down. That’s why it’s great to blog about this stuff, I would hate the guilt of saying it here, essentially leaving proof of me saying I will do something and then not do it! Bah it’s not worth it. Anyway lets continue below to talk about my Tuesday night long run in the LDN. It...
Long day ahead but we got this right? Meeting > Work > Pub > Football. Perfect Monday right? On a side note, my training doesn’t start until Boxing day, so I have a couple of weeks to run without any worries (in terms of distance and speed). Tomorrow I’m going to have some fun with this and do what my good friend Lynda did and see how far she can get in an hour long run, then...

London Marathon Training Officially Starts On...
Before we do this, click here and listen. Ok now that’s out of the way, on with the post! I went for a 9 mile run with my friend on Sunday. We took it real easy and just enjoyed our surroundings, I had no idea about some of the trails lurking in East London! Such a beautiful place, I love where I live. (Pics below). So we ran, and spoke a lot as we tried to better ourselves. That’s...
GUYS STOP SCROLLING.
zoweenobody: Next year my dad (who is 50, and has bad knees and feet) is running the london marathon, and raising looaadsss of money for the British Heart Foundation, because when my older step brother was little, he had a serious heart condition & had to have operations on his heart. So PLLEEAASSEE either sponsor him (any amount helps) or just reblog this to spread the word. THANKS! :D...
