I Did it!

  Well, here we are at last. Finally I have achieved my latest giant goal and created a new Personal Best for a Marathon! My 2nd Brighton marathon resulted in me finishing in 5hrs 23 minutes, knocking a massive 19 minutes off of my previous time. To say I am thrilled is an understatement. Who…

Legs of jelly, mind of steel!

                  Firstly my apologies for my distinct lack of blogging of late. I’ve been so busy running, I have barely had time to do anything else! I am finally managing to address the balance, although I seem to have got a bit carried away with the resting…

January Blues or Positively Pink!?

Often this time or year can feel like such a trudge. The fairy lights and brightness of December becomes a distant memory and the stark bareness of January can just feel like such a let down. Money is often tighter than pair of skinny jeans. Oh and as for your waistline and even your health…

Life faster with technology I beg to differ!

I’m sitting here, all poised and ready to run. However my phone is not quite ready due to numerous uploads on Facebook, and of course those misspent minutes spent liking all manner of things. I’ve already had my obligatory Mother’s Day lie-in, my lovely gifts of flowers, a wonderfully original card and scrapbook from Ellie….

Positive energy

I have to be honest, I really didn’t fancy my run this morning. I was tired, I’d been on an early shift all week, so had less sleep, my Fitbit was impressed with my many, many steps just from a normal day at work and as my oh so lovely (yet honest) hubby pointed out,…

Fitbit Frenzy

Well I am finally getting back into the swing of things, encouraged all the way by my amazing Fitbit. To say I love it is an understatement. It’s everything I hoped it would be and more. In fact its managed to perform a slight personal miracle! I’ll be honest I’ve always struggled to get excited…

Seize the Day

Despite a rather bad nights sleep and awful weather, I woke up yesterday morning determined to seize the day. Lying in bed, thinking about the fact I will be in a plane this time in two weeks time certainly helped. ( I must maintain my beach ready body.) So an hour later I was power-walking…

Back on track

I am happy to say I had a much better time all round this week. Work has been better, I am back on track with remembering to take my complete woman vitamins, and I am having a great time running. This weekend has been particularly good, partly because I actually had both Saturday and Sunday…

Exhaustion to Excitement

My day started well for a day off. I managed to book a last minute slot on the Legs, Bums and Tums class, had an awesome coaching session with the amazing Shebear and put the finishing touches to this website ready for its launch on May 30th. Julie and I had a great class, trying…

Keep on running

Well that was fun! I decided to use my first Saturday off in ages wisely, so I started off with another jog. No Julie this time so I popped in my headphones and did a bit of multi-tasking by listening to my downloads for Rock choir. I did start off with a bit of a…
