Lets Talk About Cankles

Advice, Fitness

Cankle noun a woman’s fat or swollen ankle whose flesh merges unattractively with that of the calf. Until quite recently I have always had Cankles. Unlike some people who develop medical problems which cause swelling around the ankles, my cankles were inherited from my beloved Grandma’s & Mum and until today were my biggest insecurity. I‘ve always wanted to be one of those girls that could wear ankle boots with dresses but not once had the confidence to do so as boots would either cut in, or just look stupid. However not long ago […]

Getting Back To It 1 Week Post Laparoscopy

Fitness

Following my surgery I was told to take 2 weeks off any form of exercise, yet I couldn’t help myself – whoops. For someone who was training 6 days a week regularly, stopping everything (even if you are in pain) is bloody hard as you start feeling lost. That being said, I would not have […]

Hello 2018.


Fitness, Lifestyle

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 […]

Autumn Kit Picks


Fashion & Outfits, Fitness, Running

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 […]

How To Train Your Dog To Run


Fitness, Lifestyle

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 […]

Off Season Plans


Fitness

Although I have not blogged since the beginning of the year properly, I have still been competing where I can. Life took a sudden turn in July (just as I started to get my mojo back for running and writing – Typical!), thus I had to spend my spare time focusing on family time rather than blogging. With everything settling down […]

Midnight Marathon: Kit Checklist


Uncategorised

After taking part in HARP24 a few months back with my running club, I got the bug for night-time running and decided to sign up for a midnight marathon. It’s all come around very quickly as this weekend I take on the Cancer Research challenge to complete 26.2 miles before sunrise and I couldn’t be more excited. […]

What I’ve Been Up To.


Fitness

My last post was just short of three months ago and as much as I’d like to blame that all on life getting in the way, the truth is I lost my mojo following a rather large downward spiral of events. Of course, I’ve still been running and training as much as possible, however when […]

A Month In Fitness: June


Fitness

May was a little dull fitness-wise thanks to a chest infection, which resulted a trip to A&E in an ambulance, wiping me out of three races and a lot of training. Therefore I am ever so excited to jump back into training this month. Race season is in full swing and there are plenty of events […]
