Fitness, Race Reviews, Running

So I know that I was meant to put up a post prior to my race at the weekend but life got in the way, so apologies. I will however pop up more content in the next few weeks as I have a break from races for three weeks. This weekend was the annual HARP […]

I feel like at the moment all I am doing is writing Race recaps, however when I looked at my training diary I realised every Sunday’s run at the moment is a race! Have no fear because I get three weeks off soon so you’ll find out a little more about my training for Ride […]

Henley Sprint Triathlon

Fitness, Race Reviews, Triathlons

On Sunday I took part in my second Sprint Triathlon in Henley-on-Thames and absolutely loved it! We drove up on Sunday morning, of course stopping off at McDonald’s for some breakfast (not recommended pre-race fuel) and plodded along the motorway for two hours until we reached Henley. The plan to originally stay up in Henley, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Race Recap: Race For Life Southend 2017


Fitness, Lifestyle

On Sunday I took part in Southend’s annual Race for Life Event at Garrons Park.  This event is always well organised, well marshaled and fun to take part in given the cause. I had been planning all week to aim for a Personal Best at the race seeing as this was the event I set […]
