I might actually be enjoying running!

Sep 04, 16 I might actually be enjoying running!

Posted by in Musings, Running

If you’d have said to me a month ago that I’d be able to run five miles with running club on a Wednesday night after a tough day at work I’d have laughed at you.  If you’d told me I’d do it on more than one occasion I wouldn’t have believed you.  Not only that I can go out and do 5k or 7k without...

Posted by in Races, Running

Well the day dawned, and surprisingly I was quite looking forward to not only my first race in three years, but my first outdoor run in two years, despite barely any training and only just hitting 5k on the treadmill a few days ago. As is always the case things didn’t go smoothly. Traffic was such a nightmare we abandoned all...

It’s been a while since I last posted, and that’s because I gave up on running. Life got in the way, I went though some pretty massive life changes, and I let it fall by the wayside.  I moved house in May last year and away from my village route. I’m sure if I’d made the effort I could have found a new...

A Little Less Procrastination

Jan 23, 14 A Little Less Procrastination

Posted by in Musings, Running

As I sat in my comfy chair playing inane games on my iPad on Sunday and not even thinking about going for my planned training run I was reminded that this time last year nothing would have kept me indoors, not the weather, not injury, I’d have been out there following my marathon training plan regardless, and that I was...

Seasons Greetings – did you run on Xmas Day?

Dec 27, 13 Seasons Greetings – did you run on Xmas Day?

Posted by in Running

Because of Manchester marathon being just a few weeks earlier than London it means my training plan has already commenced, albeit a bit of a rough start. Friday saw me trying to juggle my training run into a busy day flitting from place to place so ended up being a 40 minute session on the treadmill at the gym, just before my...

What to do in a power cut… Go for a run!

Jul 19, 13 What to do in a power cut… Go for a run!

Posted by in Running

Around tea time the power went off. It happens. However, this time when it came back an hour later my neighbours house and my house were still left without power. We were advised they’d send the diggers out to find the fault and it word be a few hours. They weren’t joking, and next thing we know the street is full of...

What do you take on your run?

Jul 17, 13 What do you take on your run?

Posted by in Running

Other than sheer determination that is. I recently read on Facebook that someone had hurt their ankle on a run, they didn’t have their phone with them or money and a shopkeeper refused to let them make a call home for help. Today I ran in some very short shorts. Despite that I still had my phone on me and a mini purse. Just...

Posted by in Running

I didn’t like it! I’ve spent the best part of a month now coming up with feeble excuses as to why I couldn’t run. Truth be told no matter how busy work or school was I could have found time if I wanted to. I guess deep down I just didn’t want to. Today I was supposed to be running at 1pm with a friend and...
