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…

Just keep running, just keep running!

  So I promise I am still here in the land of the living… I bet you thought I had fallen off the planet with my lack of blogging! I am so sorry to have neglected you but my current goal, mission, crazy passion has well and truly taken over…… This running a marathon malarkey…

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…

Whatever you do – make it fun!

So there I was cleaning the cooker, merrily singing along to the song ‘Footloose’ on the radio, when I suddenly found myself remembering a funny observation I had made whilst out on my last run. I realised that I run differently to whatever song comes blasting through my earphones at the time, and it really…

No going back now!

Well I’ve only gone and done it, fulfilled a life long dream and have managed to sign up for the Brighton marathon on the 9th of April 2017. I am sooo excited about it, or to be more precise, a  strange a mixture of excited, proud and slightly nervous. I’ve been really pushing it lately…

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,…

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…

Phew!

Well its certainly been a while since I last updated my blog. To say its been busy is an understatement! I had a week off from my day job and boy did I put it to good use. Where do I start? I finally decorated my, sorry ‘our’ bedroom, turning it from a multifunctioning, dark…
