Tuesday 16th January - today session was a tempo run. 8 x 800 meters (which is roughly about half a mile) at my 5km pace with 90 seconds recovery. Had a mile warm up and a mile cool down as well. Caught a train to Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire from London Marylebone and warmed up around the beautiful surroundings of the Aquadome in Ricky before hitting the path along the Grand Union Canal, then crossing Cassiobury Park in Watford. Managed to do this session in 1-01-11, running 7 miles (11.26km) and burning 1,062 kcal. The session was great (and nice to see some winter sun) but I think I was a bit slower than my current 5km pace. Still, workout done. No niggles and full of positivity right now. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining
Monday 15th January - 40 minute recovery run today. 4.44 miles (7.14km) at 9.11 per mile pacing. Burnt 691 kcal. On the plus side, just weighed myself and I am now under 13 stone for the first time in 16 months. Now weigh 12.97 stone (82.4kg/181.7lbs) so the weight loss is going well along with the fitness programme. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining

Sunday 14th January - was suppose to do a 12 mile (19.31 km) steady run but as I was enjoying this part of the Grand Union Canal so much through Watford and Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire, UK, I decided to up the mileage to a half marathon distance (13.1 miles - 21km). Averaging nine minutes a mile pacing, I got the miles in the bag in 01-55-11 (which was faster than my half marathon times in November just gone and I wasnt racing today!). Burnt 2016kcal. Feeling fantastic, no niggles to report and the training/fitness plan is now falling into place. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining

PARKRUN 115 COMPLETED - GUNNERSBURY PARK, LONDON, UK I was believing that I could go under sub-22 minutes for the first time since 13th July 2016! The motivation was there. Training has been near excellent this week. The mentality was there. My plan was to go Gung-Ho this morning and thrash my body to try and get a fast time. I found it hard don't get me wrong, I still got quite a of weight to shift and lots of body strength workouts to do that but I went to Gunnersbury Park in West London with the aim of just going for it. And I did. (The course is a flat two lap course, the only worry was the amount of potholes) First mile - 6:40 - good fast pace, didn't shoot off from the start and kept it steady. Second mile 7:13 - slowed down a touched for about thirty seconds but managed to get a grip off myself and pushed towards the end of the mile. Third mile 7:06 - continuing on from the second mile, just kept pushing but getting faster towards the end. Last 400 meters - gung-ho!!!! Sprinted like hell, faster than I did at Tring Parkrun two weeks ago and overtook so many other runners! Contender for best sprint ever by me! I finished the course in 21-47, finishing 57th out of 548 runners. Fastest parkrun time since Crissy Fields in San Francisco in December 2017 (22-13) and my next targets in the next couple of weeks (regarding 5km) are - a) my last fast parkrun time was 21-15 on Christmas Day 2015 at Panshanger! Going to be tough but I believe I can do it. When I was marathon training at my peak I was getting times of around 20-00 in 5km's which help me get a marathon PB of 03-16-22 that year. Just got to keep building and working hard in training. b) however, my last fastest official 5km time (not parkrun) was back on 13th July 2016, the Stevenage Striders Handicap and I did that in 21-38. I hope to beat that very soon as well and is probably my next target in the 5km times. Just some aims to go for, lets see what I can do! Now to look forward to tomorrow's morning long run. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining

Friday 12th January: today was 6 mile (10km) tempo run session. My body didnt get out of first gear until I hit mile 4 and then I was flying. Hated the weather today, cold and dreary. Tried a new route today, an out and back course from Watford to Patchetts Green with a few hills chucked in. Had trouble crossing the A41 twice which slowed me down quite a bit. In the end finished the 6 miles in 51-47, burning 922kcal. #running #RunningBuddies #marathons #marathonrunner #marathonrunning #fitness #Workout #workoutmotivation #training #stevenagestriders #instarun #fit #instarunner #instarunning #roadtovalencia

January 10th 2018: after doing all the training runs up near the North Pole last week, today was my first training session back in England. Today was 15x60 secondd tempo run at 5km pace (thereabouts) with 60 seconds recovery in between plus a warm up beforehand and cool down afterwards. Completed this session in 44-27.

Sunday 7th January: Danik Bates managed to do a 6.58km (4.1 mile) steady run on ice and compacted snow this morning here in Svalbard (just south of the North Pole). Did it in 38-21 Danik: Managed to do 9:47 per mile pacing but had to finish as my sweat was starting freeze and breathing was a lot harder. Soon as I got to my accommodation I felt light headed but was in the warm with a cup of tea very quickly and was fine. Getting used to the conditions up here and the 24 hour darkness.

Dándolo vueltas, el futuro en el que pensaba hace 4-5 años es ahora. Me podían las ganas pero no era el momento, ahora si. Camino largo. #RoadToValencia
Just a short run today before temperatures plummeted and a storm came in as I took it steady around the settlement of Longyearbyen (which is about 600 miles away from North Pole). Managed to get two miles (3.2km) done at 9:53 pacing.

Just found these photos from December 2017 when I competed in the Stevenage Parkrun.

PARKRUN 113 and 114 COMPLETED - NEW YEARS DAY - Gadebridge (Hemel Hempstead) and Tring, Hertfordshire, UK New Years Day special Parkruns meant that I could complete two new courses as part of my marathon training and I choose two which are hard, muddy, dirty (otherwise known as Cross Country). First 5km kicked off at 9am at Gadebridge Park in Hemel Hempstead for a two lap course around a field. Couldn't do race pace as I was sliding everywhere but was very happy to finish in 25-41, finishing 38th out of 146 runners. This was my 62nd different course on the Parkrun circuit. One hour later I was in Tring in the beautiful surroundings of Tring Park. This one lap course was even more hilly, even more muddy and more challenging. Despite slipping over a few times, sliding backwards up the first major hill, I still managed to finish this course in 27-36, coming in 89th out of 353 runners. This was my 63rd different course on the Parkrun circuit. Wasn't going for times but was after two good workouts which I got. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining #fitnessmotivation #workoutmotivation

Buena carrera para despedir el año 2017 con 5ª posición en la San Silvestre murciana, un año lleno de grandes éxitos logrados como el bronce de Juegos Sordolimpicos en Samsun y el récord europeo de 800m. Este año 2018, seguro estará repleto de muchas MMP y muchas alegrias!! Bajo órdenes de gran @aserrano1965 y compañeros tan grandes como @rechi11 @pedrojuli_wf @adel.mechaal @smechaal @ouassimoumaiz @fedebruno1500mts @pulguillaterremoto @alberto_1500tf #RoadtoValencia #RoadtoGomel #RoadtoGetafe
Muchas gracias @rdrvlln por inmortalizar este momento!!! Después de muchos años comentando entrenos y carreras, por fin pudimos compartir kms por primera vez, @ivanfmoro . Ya sé que lo mejor habría sido que no corriéramos ninguno de los dos, espero que la factura no sea muy grande, pero solo por esta foto y por el aliento del público en esos últimos metros ya mereció la pena. Espero que este 2018 venga cargado de salud y se cumplan tus sueños y los de todos. De momento como dice el gran Brunetti a relamerse las heridas que en nada está ahí Perlora y uno de los sueños para este año pasa por tener suerte ese día. Mientras tanto agradecer a @coach.nacho por guiarme en este 2017 que deportivamente va a ser difícil de igualar, aunque ya estamos trabajando para intentarlo!! 💪🏻💪🏻#piloñadeporte #casticaceresrc #coachnacho #soymaraton #roadtovalencia #enperloraaportodas

Last run of 2017 completed in the early hours to this morning before working a 12 hour shift in London. 30 minute recovery run in the pissing rain...and by god, it threw it down. I was a drowned rat afterwards. Ran 3.2 miles (over 5km) in 30 mins, pacing around 9:25 per mile. Burnt 501 kal. Bring on tomorrows run but would like to say 'happy new year' to all of you. Stride on! #running #RunningBuddies #marathons #marathonrunner #marathonrunning #42km #fitness #Workout #workoutmotivation #training #stevenagestriders #instarun #fit #instarunner #instarunning #roadtovalencia
Mañana última competicion del año. Terminamos un 2017 tal y como lo empezamos, en Antequera. Este año ha sido increíble en tantísimas cosas que solo pido poder repetir tantas experiencias. En cuanto a rendimiento este año ha sido en el que me he empezado a notar realmente fuerte y ahora estoy mejor todavía. Mañana tocan 200 metros, toca volar. 2018 voy a por ti. 📷: @raquellopezp_ #roadtosalamanca #roadtovalencia #200m #nerjaatletismo #atletismoalamillo

December 26th 2017: was checking out more of Watford in Hertfordshire, UK for todays workout. Todays session was a 30 minute recovery run at 8:30 per mile pacing to which I need to run 3.53 miles in that time! Since coming back from injury my pacing has been crap. But today was spot on! 30 minutes running - ran 3.5 miles and averaged 8:36 pacing. So happy with that! Since Sunday 24th December I have ran 19.5 miles. Training has been awesome recently. Have a great Boxing Day guys! #running #RunningBuddies #marathons #marathonrunner #marathonrunning #42km #fitness #Workout #workoutmotivation #training #stevenagestriders #instarun #fit #instarunner #instarunning #roadtovalencia

PARKRUN 111 COMPLETED - CHRISTMAS DAY - Panshanger, Hertford, UK Todays Christmas Day training involved two laps of doing Panshanger Parkrun course (totalling 10km/6 miles) which is all off road and with the drizzle, I got very muddy. First lap (5km/3.2 miles) before the parkrun was suppose to be the fast tempo run and managed to do this around 24-45. The second lap was the actual parkrun and I was suppose to run at a slower pace (but not to slow). Well that didnt go to plan and at the end of the 5km, I looked at my watch and found out I was faster! About 28 seconds faster. Opps! The actual parkrun I completed the 5km (3.2 mile) course in 24-18 finishing in 73rd out of 364 runners. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining #fitnessmotivation #workoutmotivation
