Long Runs

I am many weeks into my marathon training and last weekend I finally got past half marathon distance in my long runs. I was meant to get 16 miles two weeks ago – but only managed 11 miles for both of them. I’ve been running the last few long runs with some ladies from my running club, and it’s been…

Race Report – Barcelona Half Marathon

April / February 20, 2019

What: Barcelona Half Marathon I’ve done this race before, 3 years ago and I’ve wanted to do it again for a while. I love Barcelona and this is such a great course – sightseeing the city in the sunshine. The last time I did it I got a PB 2:07! This time, I am heavier and haven’t been running as…

Fundraising – Endangered Animals Zine

April / January 29, 2019

When I’m not running (or working, or biking to work or watching TV or playing games) I like to draw. I started taking art seriosuly a couple of years ago and have been improving a little everyday. And I have been finding fundraising difficult. I am running my first marathon in April for the WWF and I need to raise…

April / January 29, 2019

I haven’t posted for a few weeks because I’ve been so busy! So I am just going to jot down some highlights of the Marathon Training week 3 to 6. I have been keeping to my plan pretty well – I did skip a night training with Windle Valley Runners as it was freezing, icy and snowing. Turns out they…

Week 2 is in the bag – and It only took me 8 days! This week also aligned with the start of 2019! So I made a few running goals this year: I’m hoping 1000 miles is doable! And then for the Brighton Marathon to happen, I just need to keep training, and somehow raise another Ā£320 :/ And with…

MARATHON TRAINING – WEEK 1

April / January 3, 2019

I finally started marathon training! Since my last post (where I fell over and twisted my ankle really badly) I have slowly built up to running again and my ankle is 90% better. It’s still a bit stiff after runs, but it’s January – which means Yoga With Adrienne posts her new 30 Days of Yoga series – which I…

I should have run a half-marathon today.

April / November 25, 2018

So, I haven’t posted for over a month (whoops!) but I thought I better sit down and catch up on stuff tonight before I forgetĀ I have a blog altogether! The Catchup October was crazy – I was staying late in the office most nights (up to 2am sometimes!) and working weekends to get a project finished. My running suffered and…

Yoga with Adriene – Live Class!

April / October 6, 2018

Yoga with Adriene is a YouTube channel, community and awesome Yoga movement that I’ve been following off and on for a few years. I did get super into yoga at one point a couple of years ago and was doing a YwA video almost every night. Then I made a stupid personal challenge to do Yoga Every Day in 2017.…

Race Report – Glow in the Park 5k

April / October 6, 2018

What: Glow in the Park 5k I’ve always wanted to run one of those crazy fun-run 5k’s. A colour run, or a themed run, or over giant inflatable obstacles. So when I saw Glow in the Park was happening at a venue 20 minutes from home I grabbed an entry. I grabbed MartinĀ an entry too – so he had no…
