Ahh snow. Wonderful fluffy amazing snow. Isn't it just great? It falls from the sky and looks so beautiful, kids for miles scream "Snow day!!" as they see the white drops floating from the sky. How fabulous, lets all go out and build snowmen and slide on our bums. Yippee! NO. I really really want… Continue reading Why I hate snow..and other problems
What have I been up to in February? Well if the last week was anything to go by you'd think it had been mainly running and cardio, however I've actually been making up for a lack of running at the start of February. In fact, in this month I've only managed to do a total… Continue reading February Legs
I'm pleased to announce that Sam's 18 in 2018 has well and truly begun, with the first two events in the bag over the course of this weekend. I'm feeling a tad depressed/guilty about the fact that I seemed to spend most of my weekend away from my family, running mostly in muddy situations, but… Continue reading Eat. Sleep. RUN RUN RUN. Repeat.
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
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.
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
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
Advance Notice: This post is almost completely about running. I'll get to what an epic week its been in a minute, but first, never one to shy away from a challenge - I've set myself another one! I'm planning on running every day in July! Also known as a 'run streak', I have a few… Continue reading Getting Back On Track
