I’ve Neglected My Running

I’m putting my hands up 🙋🏻🙋🏻 I’ve neglected my running the last few months and it’s all my fault.  Two months ago I joined the gym for the first time of my life. I love it. I love trying out different machines and weights and I feel great afterwards. But I don’t feel the same … Continue reading I’ve Neglected My Running

Homemade Iron Packed Soup

Fancy some soup that's really easy to make and is packed with iron? Salads are great but I need variety and the soups at work can be unpredictable or not vegetarian!

Lighter Evenings- A Runner’s Dream! 

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 😊

To Track Or Not To Track? Is It All In The Mind?

Lately I've been experimenting with my TomTom Runner watch.  I sometimes find that when I wear my watch out for a run, I am constantly checking it and the run doesn't feel as good. Is it psychological? Probably. When I don't wear it I feel better for it. I run how my body feels. But … Continue reading To Track Or Not To Track? Is It All In The Mind?
