Carrying on with my theme of making tough decisions (my last post was about giving up some of my much loved to shows) I've started looking into giving up sugar, particularly how difficult it would be and thinking about whether I'm up to such a challenge. I already know that this is going to be… Continue reading One Month – No Sugar – Challenge Accepted!
I've not blogged in a while, and this one is going to be so off topic for me, but something has really riled me today. Racism, xenophobia, social media. They really don't mix well do they? What do you do when you are happily scrolling through your facebook wall and someone you know, shares an… Continue reading Anger post alert..
I may have mentioned this already, but on Sunday 13th September I am taking part in The Great North Run. In a recent advert for the event, the BBC has described it as the greatest half marathon ever. I’m scared. On the 1st of January 2015, I, like countless others around the world made a… Continue reading G N R.
[Forward: I've been having a bit of a crisis of confidence recently, which has led to me skipping several runs, which is not good training for the Great North Run. Anyway, I came on here to write a blog post and found this draft which I wrote back in April and hadn't published. Given the… Continue reading My Body Made Me Feel Better
Its 5:28am, and I'm wide awake. I've been awake since 4am when Leo woke up with what I thought was a stinky nappy. It wasn't, but I'm awake now, and Leo is back in bed. I'm poorly too, been coughing my guts up (well, some nasty green stuff which closely resembles my guts) for a… Continue reading Not a mumsy blog post..OK it is.
I'm feeling inspired so bear with, or is it bare with? I never know. I haven't blogged since 1st November 2013, 4 days before I found out I was pregnant. My post was about getting ready for the Mo-vember run, which I ended up not doing, but luckily my big bro did run it so… Continue reading Changes
I haven't posted in a while; I haven't wanted to, I don't want to now but feel I should so will persevere. Advance warning this will probably be mainly about running, so if that bores you then you best switch off now. Ah training, I'd like to say its been fun, but it's just been… Continue reading Mo Running, Mo Sleepy.
I've been on a few running blogs recently - many by women in a similar position to me, who have taken up running originally as a way to lose weight, but then ended up loving it. Quite a few have their favourite songs to run to listed on their blogs. I've had to do a… Continue reading An excuse to post a bunch of links to music videos…
I'm glad I didn't get a chance to blog on Friday evening. Those who saw my running attempt on Friday on Endomondo will have also seen my angry 'I will blog about this!!' comment. I will blog about it, just not in a self loathing, feeling sorry for myself, angry kinda way. Instead it will… Continue reading Running ups and downs
I don't think I've felt this angry in a while. Today I set out to do a practice 5K round the park, I only managed just over 2k. Why? Well for that I need to go back a few weeks. It was just after pay day at the end of July/start of August when I… Continue reading bad trainers + running = blisters and ouch
