Alan has been a running-bore. Running can easily become obsessional. These days that’s rather in the past tense, but he still gets a buzz from jogging and the occasional cycle ride.

If you want to find out a bit more about Alan’s running experiences and running ‘loony’ friends, check out:

The Great Britain Training Log is an unique map to be used as an aid to trainingGreat Britain Training Log

With friends Trevor (who is amongst the world’s most prolific marathon runners) and Sara Hawes, Alan produced the Great Britain Training Log. He still has a few for sale at £5.00 each including p&p.

It’s a fun idea. It can be hung or blu-tacked to a wall or door and measures seven foot three inches. What you can then do is to add in your own diary training entries (running, cycling or walking) on a map of John O’Groats to Land’s End – and see how long it takes you to complete the 1,022 miles, while learning some bits of history along the way.

Trevor Hawes, by the way, now runs a successful educational company: check out: www.optimal-learning.net
