Thames Path Challenge Training Walk, Week One: 8.43 miles, 157 minutes. Today was the first of the 'Training Walks', an accidental 8.43 miles (should have been a flat six), but I found myself taken with the idea of ranging about off-road tr... Read more

If April brings the showers, where are my May flowers? Honestly, this is going to be a tough month; it's all weddings and hen parties and socialising; there isn't a weekend where I'm not out with people in potentially calorific situations.... Read more

Sweet Dreams

Tuesday, April 30, 2013      3 comments

Holy moly I'm tired. Not the kind of tired where you fall into a dead sleep; the kind that keeps your mind awake, even though your body's long given up the ghost. With that in mind maybe it's time to talk about dreams... not ones where you're... Read more

Kettlebells, spinning,' Body Attack!', Hiking, Boxing ... Phew what an backside busting week it's been. Is it too little too late? Y'know for that slinky dress next weekend? ... We'll see. There's seven days to go, and while that's not going to ... Read more

So there I was, having an awesome time of it, when ... bang! Hormones, cramps, bloating and yes it's that dreaded 'Time of the Month'. Don't mind me while I just pass out and eat chocolate. Or not. Well, maybe a bit of chocolate. When 'thin... Read more

Shut Up Scale!

Oh real life, why must you get in my highly motivated way?! You're like leaves on a train line... yes, I said leaves; if you're British you'll know how many rail delays they cause. Seriously. Leaves. Everything seems to be happening this we... Read more

Sunday, April 14, 2013      1 comments

5:20 am. T-10 minutes to run, here I am peering out into the dark, wondering if it's cold. At least it's not raining, yet. I decide to add a few layers. Better to be safe than sorry. Why am I doing this? It's going to rain... 5:30 am. B... Read more

Ow! Oh boy, there's not a single inch of me that isn't aching. Between the blisters on my hands (kettlebells), the blisters of my feet (running), the sore thighs, sore arms.... I've DOMS therefore I am. I never thought I'd be so happy. ... Read more
