It's January, and in true Sam's Plans style, I've got some challenges ahead (mainly in my head) that I am really determined to achieve by 31st December. I mentioned in my last post about my 18 in 2018 idea, and I've started booking some events in. Just waiting for pay day now to book in… Continue reading Sam’s Plans is planning
Ah, the New Years Eve post. Lately, I've been trying to look back on 2017 and think about what and who has inspired me. It's helped me realise that I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by people who inspire me everyday. Running and Fitness I have a whole bunch of running buddies who are always… Continue reading 2017 (formerly known as the post with no title)
I'm now 3 weeks into my new eating/fitness plan and I have to say I'm really enjoying it. I'm still trying to adjust to little things here and there, I think my mind has been a bit warped towards all the different diets I've tried in the past, so doing it this way has taken… Continue reading Don’t be a moron.
This is a call to all my friends, family and anyone else who cares for me. I need your support. So after my last depressing (but important) post about PCOS (or 'The Bitch' as I've decided to refer to it) I've given myself a good talking to and made another decision to get my health… Continue reading A Sam’s Plans Public Service Announcement
I'm not sure how ready I am to write about this yet, or how far I'll go with this post. There's a lot going on in my head at the moment, I'm trying to keep everything in check but I keep slipping. About 6 months ago I had it confirmed to me, I've got PolyCystic… Continue reading Me vs PCOS
Oh Thoresby 10, how I was dreading you. I did no training for the 10 mile race at Thoresby Park, but I had decided not to put any pressure on myself and to **try** to enjoy it. My sister had travelled up from London to join me, and I was running with a bunch of… Continue reading Thoresby10
It's a NO! To the London Marathon that is. Well, for this year anyway. I applied in the ballot, as I have for the last couple of years. I've always wanted my first marathon to be London, but now I'm actually opening myself up to the idea of a different one. Since I started running,… Continue reading Twenty Six Point Two
It's done. Finished. I'm happy to say that I completed the Great North Run for a second time at the weekend. It was an amazing run, and I met some fab people. There's still a lot whirring round in my head, so I feel I need to get things out of my system in bullet… Continue reading 2:54:18
Oh dear. My running lately has been rather crap. I've either been too ill or knackered to run lately. Had an incident where I had to quit mid run - was getting awful stomach cramps. Managed a 10 mile run about a week and a half ago with a friend. Then nothing. I've had a… Continue reading How’s the training going then?
History OK - a little re-cap first. On 1st July I started my 'run everyday in July' challenge. It had been going really well - I'd had some hard times, but generally it was working out for me. I was doing a few days a week of 1-2KM and then some longer runs on other… Continue reading Day 17
