McCarthy in Booze shocker, again.

The 28th January saw McCarthy struggle to 4 weeks without a drop of booze, even managing to ‘survive’ his Birthday without any of the good stuff. His longest stint since he went to University some ten years ago, McCarthy had this to say; “I can’t see what benefit it’s had really, aside from the potential…

OBS Day 21: The Great Storm, 3 and 4.

This was not a day to run 18 miles. This was a day when fingers were numbed, shoes were sodden and wind penetrated eye balls. It was a day so cold that whilst urinating in a bush, someone trapped their scrotum and didn’t feel the pain till the chaffed skin defrosted. It was ‘scrotum freezing’ weather. …

Operation Big Smoke: Week 2

With Simkiss seemingly on the scrap heap after one day of the schedule it left McCarthy to complete week one alone, culminating with a 47th position finish in the XC league in the midst of a 75 mile week. The midweek session, the 8 mile cut down tempo was completed (by McCarthy anyway) ahead of pace and…
