New Year Resolutions

As we hurtle towards the end of this month, the first of this new year I thought it about time for me to look back on January 2014. Not only in terms of my progress but reflect also the whole concept of resolutions and how useful they are. I mean many of us make them each … Continue reading

A very personal post

Today I took my daughter to the local hospital to see an ear nose and throat specialist as she was born with congenital pre auricular fistula (ear pits), its nothing serious but they wanted to just check if they had closed by themselves. So I walked the 2 and a half miles there, and then … Continue reading

Longest Run of 2014

It said on my training plan…Long Run, but in all honesty anything over 5k is kinda long for me right now. I haven’t been out for a self-induced long training run since about November last year and that was just shy of 10k. So today I decided I would try for something around the 12 … Continue reading

Perfect Parkrun

My times have not come through yet but I know I did a PB today simply because I was trying a new course. What I didn’t expect to do though was go sub 34 – Something I haven’t done since early 2012. My home run is Wanstead Flats, but it is ridiculously muddy at the … Continue reading

Cars and Kettlebells

I have a car. I don’t drive it that often, but it is a useful asset to family life. It is however a bit of a pain in the backside sometimes, and I often wonder if it is worth the expense or the hassle to keep it on the road. Today for example I have spent most of … Continue reading

Day 5 – I don’t want to peak too soon

I had a bit of a lay in today. No thats not exactly true. What happened was I got up early sorted Rose out, had a healthy breakfast, made a start on my todo list of housework and then thought stuff this and went back to bed. My other half was happy enough having a … Continue reading

A list of excuses

Whoever said there is no such thing as bad weather only bad clothing choices was wrong. This morning was definitely filled with bad weather. The alarm went off at 7.45 but I needn’t of bothered setting it as Rose had me up at 40 minute intervals through the night anyway. There lies excuse no 1 … Continue reading

Did you know that I was in the magazine Womens Running this month? I took part in the “big debate” which this month was about running for weightloss. If you get a chance pick up a copy as its a really good feature that speaks to 3 ladies who have lost weight through running. The … Continue reading

What a way to start 2014

If I think back to all the crazy antics I’ve got up to in the early hours of New Years Day over the years, wow it makes me shudder and smile in equal measure. A couple of years back I actually saw two “Happy New Year” moments as I crossed a time zone in South … Continue reading
