Okay so what is iron deficiency anaemia? Quite simply, iron deficiency anaemia (anemia - US spelling) is a condition where a lack of iron in the body leads to a reduction in the number of red blood cells. According to http://www.runnersworld.com iron deficiency anaemia is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies among female athletes. They [...]
At last the evenings are lighter for longer, meaning a quick 5.15pm 4km is doable before the darkness hits. My favourite time to run is in the morning but unfortunately there's still time to go before it's light at 5.30am. Excited 😊
My second 10k race. This time last week, I took part in the 10k London Winter Run 2017. Being only my second 10k, I was both nervous and excited about completing it. When I did my first one nearly 2 years ago, I was no where as fit as I was now and I weighed a [...]
We've all been there. Especially around winter time. The germs flow round the confined office space overfilled with bodies. There's no escaping it! What sucks is for us runners who want to get out into the cold wintry conditions, desperate to feel the wind on our faces to the point where our eyes water. We [...]

I managed my first 5k run this week and I feel very proud of myself! I didn't stop once! Roll on next week when I try and do it all over again!!!
I recently treated myself to a Breville Blend Active smoothie maker! It is the family edition where you have 4 cups (2 large and 2 small flasks) instead of just the one. I had my eye on it a while but waited until I saw it on offer somewhere-and I did!!! Lakeland were selling it [...]
I have lost half a stone before I started this exercise timetable in around a month. Go knows what I could do when I stick to this!!!!!
I have been successfully waking up at 5.30am for a run however last night I went swimming, did non stop breaststroke lengths for 30 minutes. When my alarm sounded, not only was my body screaming with aches and pain but outside my bedroom window didnt look very appealing either! Having an exercise time table is [...]
