Why do you run?*

What do you do when a small child asks you quite a profound question when you’re out for a run?

Don’t ask me! I have no idea!

Not a post about cheese toasties, a post about running. And cheese toasties.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you’ve had a wonderful year and enjoy the festive period. Richard and I have had a lovely year and have enjoyed a mix of travelling, spending time with family and friends and getting married (we were already legally married but on our 11th anniversary we converted…

What it’s not about

OK so today I went out for a run… This run was not about how long it’s been since I have been out to run. It’s not about how busy I have been. It’s not about the weather or any health related issues. It is about the fact that I have been out, all runs…

Twice a week!

They may not be the fastest, longest or most consistent runs I have ever done, however I am happy to have to gotten out running this week.   Global Running Day was the activity that made me put on my trainers and hit the road and that has helped reignite my enthusiasm for running.  …

Active week

It may have only been a four day week (which is not over yet), but it has felt quite long and challenging.   I’ve circumvented that with ensuring I have squeezed in some activity to keep my body and mind focussed on things other than work.  Monday I completed a session on the exercise bike…

This may come as a surprise…

… I actually managed to get out and go for a run! I finally feel well enough to get my running shoes back on and get back out there. I am not sure my chest/nose would agree as I had to stop a couple times due to the cold air but I am happy I…

Back in the saddle

This week has been very active but sadly that has not equated to much physical activity. At the start of the week I was in Rotterdam for work,  (Richard went home to Devon and Tilly to her place in the country). Of course, it’s not a long flight but all the usual issues of travelling…

Welcome to Colchester

  The weather has been lovely today so we decided to take a long walk around Colchester. We’ve lived here just over five years and we have had a good exploration of the town whilst we’ve been here and yet there is always more to see. I have seen Jumbo (the Victorian water tower) from a…

Time for another gym assessment…

It’s been about 10 weeks since we joined the Essex Golf and Country Club and my gym attendance is going strong.  It has enabled me to be focussed and allows us to both get out and have a decent round of exercise (which was the intention). Richard has found his groove in the pool whilst…

Work (out) Bitch!

Thanks to Britney the opening section of my work out today was harder than it should have been.  Work Bitch queued up on my playlist and I decided to match the speed of the traak whilst on the bike. Of course this was in the hardest section of my bike routine!   And then I…

Gym’ll fix it

Another day and another trip to the gym (well last night). I’ve done really well this week with three sessions at the gym since Saturday. Last night was the first post work session and although it was tough when I started I just got on with it.  To quote my colleagues I smashed it! I…
