Why you wanna treat me so bad?

I have no idea what happened today.  I don’t know if I was tired.  I don’t know if I hadn’t warmed up or moved enough.  I am not sure if I tied my shoes too tight or too loose…  Al i do know is that this run hurt! I set off with the same expectation…

Push It Up!

I will admit I was tired today and I had a scratchy/dry throat most of the day.   I believe this is due to the new job – not that it’s a problem.  More that I have a new routine, I am learning a lot, cramming in as much I can and trying to complete lots…

Portrait: High Key. Expose to the right and create a light, airy high key portrait. Ok two entries in one day but I have not done any in a while.  How’s this for a high key portrait?

Artistic: Transportation. Our world is one defined about how we get around. Find inspiration in transportation. Well I honestly don’t think you can see more transport in the UK than at Bank junction! How many forms of transport can you see?

The end of a journey. 

I’m at the end of an odyssey which started the day Prince died and it’s taken nearly a month to complete.  I set myself the task of listening to every album in order of release.  All 39 of them.  I’m on Hit n Run Phase II and will end the journey today.  It’s very sad…

Willing and Able

This run had lots of things I dislike:  Very windy route – winds of up to 29 mph today! Congestion thanks to the wind and cold air Having to expel at least one snot rocket 😔 I didn’t really plan the run but decided I would run a loop and see how I felt.  I…

Excuse me, is this really goodbye?

I have worked for the Global Marketing team at Unilever for nearly 10 years and today is the end of this journey.   I’ve really enjoyed it.  I never thought I’d end up doing what I have.  Working with Mark Zuckerberg.  Producing global events. Having meetings at the House of Lords. Seeing what I do…

Soft and Wet

Well, my feet felt soft but this evenings run was wet as it started to rain just as I locked the front door behind me. This was welcome though as it was a very humid day and I believe a storm is on it’s way. I am not sure how I go the energy to…

I say it’s only mountains…

It feels like I have found my stride again today and this is my first post work run in a while. I was determined to get out and run and I wanted to run 4K minimum.  I also decided to shake it up and see how I would get on with the large hill route from…

Joy in repetition?

Well, they say there is joy in repetition but I know I am growing tried of my run at home as I am literally going around in circles. I enjoy the runs I completed in Spain but I did not do as many as I normally do due to time and to having some niggles…

The eventful Spanish run

I didn’t run first thing today as we had a very long day on Ronda yesterday and we both decided to have a lie in.   I waited until after my siesta for it to cool down before heating the promenade.  This was a very different one to what I am use to hear as…

Ronda and Acinipo

We had a day away from the coast and did the long windy drive to Ronda.  It’s been several years since we last visited but it’s such a lovely place, we had to go back.  This time as well as the old town, the views of the gorge, the balcony and bullring… We also visited…
