Well, it took me a week of hard work to make it back down to 78 after last Saturday's "Sparkfree" binge. I won't be doing that again in a hurry, that was a really silly thing to do. And today I'm slightly under, at 77.8! Very happy! So... Read more

Tuesday, August 18, 2009      7 comments

Beetroot….for my husband the word instills an instant and complete sense of revulsion (he was force-fed beetroot by the nuns at his German Kindergarten, and has hated this humble veg ever since) while I, on the other hand, don’t mind beetroot. I... Read more

I survived my 8.35 K run today - without my old running dog (I have decided to retire her from running anything over 5K). I felt EXTREMELY nervous I must say (I'm a bit paranoid about personal safety after having been assaulted/attacked as... Read more
