This Mum Runs Book Review

I started reading this book as part of the Runner Beans Book Club but only just finished it due to misplacing it for several months in a very safe place.  You know the kind of safe place I am talking about? The one that you can not find because it’s a so safe it becomes invisible. “This Mum Runs” is an autobiography of British elite runner Jo Pavey, who has been competing for near on thirty years – thats dedication.

Protein World’s 4 Week Slender Blend Challenge

I have been seeing this challenge on Instagram for a few weeks now and i’m not going to lie its perfect packaging and presentation caught my eye more than anything. However, with four weeks left until I have to fit into the tightest dress I think I’ve ever seen in my life (worth it because its beautiful), I thought I’d actually join the challenge to see if I could shift some extra weight of my thunder thighs. After being in […]

London Marathon 2018 Race Recap

I BLOODY DID IT!! Lets just take a few moments or so to let that sink in, because even I haven’t got my head round it yet despite being in complete agony after tackling the 26.2 miles. Also, let me apologise now as I have a feeling this post is going to be a little bit all over the place as the whole event was a whirlwind! The morning of the race I was surprisingly calm however the minute Sol […]

The London Marathon Expo

As I write this post is it less than 24 hours until I am running London – AHH! On Thursday I headed up to London to the marathon expo to collect my bib, chip and goodies! This was my first running expo ever, as even when running large events like The Great North Run and Adidas Silverstone the race packs get posted to you, so I had no idea what to expect. I hadn’t even been to London Excel before! […]

Maranoia Is Actually A Thing

It’s normal for me to get butterflies on the morning of a race but never have I ever been this nervous about a race before. Its 6 days until the London Marathon and I already having extreme Maranoia. For the past Five days I have woken up in the middle of the night following nightmares – we are talking about nightmares where my intestines are falling out while i’m running – which has caused my anxiety to peak and my […]

TWO WEEKS TILL LONDON

Holy cow its only two weeks until the London Marathon! I am absolutely crapping myself about this race as I pasted the point of not being prepared a long time ago. That being said I am going to give it my god damn all and still complete the race even if its in 7 hours 59 minutes so I am one step closer to all six marathon majors. For someone who has been eager to complete this race for over […]

Hello 2018.

January 11th 2018. Its somehow already the second week in January and rather than getting back out there and jumping on my Marathon schedule, I am still slobbing around indoors eating leftover chocolate from Christmas! I’d put it all down to P.M.S but in reality, I just haven’t had the willpower or the getup and go to kick these habits. Now we both know that it’s not because I don’t want to or I can’t be bothered because otherwise, this […]

Autumn Kit Picks

The weather quickly changed here in the UK last week; the clocks went back and then BOOM! The bitter cold, wet weather hit the country meaning all us runners started freezing our tits off during our morning runs. So, last weekend I packed away my shorts and tanks back into my kit draw and stacked my wardrobe shelves with my thermal leggings and Autumn/Winter pieces. My favorite pieces have to be from the Adidas Climaheat collection. It may be a […]

The Royal Legion’s Poppy Run

Last Sunday I took part in the Royal Legion’s Poppy Run in Chelmsford with Hulk. I have been dying to race with Hulk ever since we got him, so it was a great coincidence that the Poppy Run I signed up for the week before was pet friendly! I knew that I wanted to race 5K during November to commemorate the end of my couch to 5K programme section in my marathon training plan. The Poppy Run Series held by […]

How To Train Your Dog To Run

Dogs love to get outside and run off energy round the park, so they make great running partners. My Husky loves to run alongside me every morning, and now he is in the routine I’ve never got the option to slack. The problem is that most dogs are not ready to run long distances from the get go as just like you they need training. So how do you train them? Well for starters you need to make sure that […]
