I managed a sprint tri in the space of a week

I really thought that I was going to get back into a routine of work, training and blogging with M starting nursery but three weeks in and her attendance is 25% 😦 The poor thing has picked up every illness going and shared it with the household, so Ive not had a lot of free [] read more »

Illness stops play

My plan for last weekend was to go swimming on Sunday, but M was unwell, so we cancelled that plan and went for a long walk instead. She was ill all week and I also had a cold, which changed my plans. I cycled to work on Monday and Thursday, which was good, but I [] read more »

Running with a buggy Q&A

Im regularly asked questions about running with a buggy (and other issues relating to being a running mum), so I thought Id share some of my insights and some useful links in a single post Do I need a special buggy? Its recommended that you only run with a buggy that is designed for running. [] read more »

parkrun Challenges

I love attending parkrun every week, so Ive decided to set myself a number of parkrun related challenges for the next year. Most of them are teeny tiny goals, but I thought they might add some fun. Achieve my 250 club (17 parkruns to go) Qualify for a cow cowl (I need to do 1 [] read more »

First run after returning to work

Its hard to believe that my maternity leave is over and that Im back at work. Im now working a compressed week (8-6pm, Monday-Thursday), which means that Ill still have some free time during daylight hours when Ill be able to cycle/run. Im also intending to make use of my lunch breaks to do some [] read more »

parkrunning Down Under

As soon as we had booked our flights to Australia, I got online to check out where the nearest parkruns were. I found that there was a parkrun at Gosling Creek in Orange, just a couple of miles away from where my brother lives and that just two weeks before we were due to arrive [] read more »

Monday Morning Motivation – Doyle Carpenter

Its a short one this week what could be more inspirational than reading about a pensioner WINNING an ultramarathon: 77 year old wins two-day ultramarathon read more »

Back to Southampton parkrun

It was lovely to be back at Southampton parkrun this weekend, although there just wasnt enough time to catch up with all of my running friends. Trevor and Alison were doing their 200th parkruns, which is a great milestone to reach. I met up with Rachel, a friend from Buggy Mums. It was lovely to [] read more »

Back to being ‘Productive’

Veri Ivanova After a rare night out on Friday (by rare, I mean the first time that Stuart and I have gone out since I had Baby M), I really didnt want to get up on Saturday morning. Stuart, M and I arrived early enough at parkrun for us both to chat with friends. I [] read more »

Monday Morning Motivation: We are marathoners

Im not sure this video qualifies as motivating, but the number of stereotypes that it includes made me smile, so I thought it was worth a share. Marathoners are a different breed. Their world is full of meticulous planning; of getting up before the sun; of personal sacrifice; of lungs gasping for air as they [] read more »

Monday Morning Motivation – Angela Shartel

Im guessing that first thing in the morning probably isnt when you have time to watch a 20 minute documentary, but please do yourself a favour, save this link and schedule time to watch this brilliant 20 minute documentary this week. Ultra Angela tells the story of Angela Shartel who has battled depression and poor [] read more »

Pacing at parkrun

A few weeks ago, one of my friends commented on Facebook that her 8-year-old son was speeding up and that she felt she was holding him back at parkrun. At the time, he was running at around 27 minutes, so I felt that it shouldnt be too much of a challenge. A date was set [] read more »

Starting Pilates

Id hoped to get my week off to a good start with a swim, but after getting home late on Sunday evening, there was a lot of organising that needed to be done yesterday 😦 However, today turned into a very good day First up was a new class: pilates. Ive done pilates a few [] read more »

Swim the triangle, run the prom

This week Ive been down in Cornwall visiting my mum for her birthday. There are loads of events on this weekend (including Lordshill 10k and Southampton City Ride), but I had intended to do St Ives Biathlon. This is a race that involves running and swimming, not skiing and shooting. Its a 2km run then [] read more »

Lee on Solent parkrun and some info about Hants...

Southampton parkrun was cancelled today because a large event (Gung Ho!) was taking place right across the Common, so this gave Stuart and I the chance to do a bit of parkrun tourism. Id like to try the new(ish) event at Whiteley, but I knew that would be busy, then I got an invitation that [] read more »

Southampton Marathon – possibly the best race I...

Back on track for a spring marathon

Time is passing so quickly these days. There is so much that I want to blog about and never enough time! I had intended to go to Buggy Mums on Thursday last week, but the weather forecast was very bad. I knew that the venue (Weston Shore) is quite exposed, so I really dithered about [] read more »

Its run by ParkLives, which is an initiative by CocaCola to bring free sports activities to city parks across the UK. It fantastic that I can exercise with M (instead [] read more »

Big round up

It feels like ages since Ive had a chance to blog. Christmas was hectic and baby M takes up an awful lot of time (who knew it was possible to sit doing nothing but watch a baby for hours!) On Christmas Eve, Stuart, M and I were in Cornwall. I had found out that there [] read more »

My sister’s first parkrun

My sister, Bryony, and her husband have come to visit from Australia, which is fantastic as I rarely get to see her. Weve been doing various festive things, including visiting Winchester Christmas market which is great fun. On the way back from Winchester, we paid a visit to Alexandra Sports. Bryony wanted to buy a [] read more »

Treadmills vs Running Outdoors

I’m not going to tell you that running on a treadmill is a waste of time, that it’s useless, or that it’s something you should never do. Running on a treadmill has its advantages. Apart from anything else, it allows you to train indoors, which means you can avoid going out in the rain and [] The post Treadmills vs Running Outdoors appeared first on Well Fit News Spot. read more »

Monday Morning Motivation – The greatest of all...

Who can fail to be inspired by the fastest human ever timed: Usain Bolt. Lightning Bolt is the holder of 9 gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at three consecutive Olympics as well as an eleven-time World Champion. Good things come to those who believe. Better things come to those who are [] read more »

Up and… walking

Its been a while since I posted, and for good reason: Unfortunately, things didnt go quite to plan, so my baby was born nearly two weeks late via emergency caesarean. Shes thriving, but Ive had some ups and downs and was readmitted to hospital. Hopefully, thats behind us now and we can start moving forward. [] read more »

Still waiting

Well, Im still hanging on waiting for mini me to arrive, but she seems to be as stubborn as Stuart/determined as me! Ive eaten plenty of spicy food, but theres a limit to how much curry/fajitas/chilli I can take! Ive also eaten a lot of fresh pineapple, but apparently pregnant women need to eat at [] read more »

Last parkrun of 2016?

Its been yet another busy week, where Ive mostly had to be at home, so Ive tried to make the most of the dry days and have spent some time in my garden. I raked up all of the leaves and filled my compost bin as well as a garden waste wheelie bin. I love [] read more »

Fast Fuel – eating for success… and a giveaway

Even if youve not been following my blog for long, youll know that nutrition is important to me. Ive successfully managed to lose weight by eating a healthy balanced diet and have only put on 7-8lbs by Week 39 of pregnancy by eating well, so Im always interested in learning more about nutrition. As we [] read more »

Did you get a place in London Marathon?

I had to go out and run some errands today, but as my hybrid is currently stuck behind a couple of old sofas in my garage, I had the choice of driving or walking. The devil on my shoulder said that it was cold and Id enjoy singing along to music in my car, but [] read more »

Choosing a bike, parkrunning and some exciting ...

Following the theft of our bikes in August, weve been busy improving our homes security (along with 1001 other home improvements). Weve had a burglar alarm installed, locks changed, additional locks installed, secure lock points fitted and various other improvements, so were moving in the direction of being able to get new bikes, which means [] read more »

Planning for 2017 and SUTRI aquathlon

Looking forward to the first cross country race...

Last night I managed to get myself back to swimming. It seems that there are a lot of people who really love swimming when they are pregnant, but Im finding it incredibly frustrating. I can no longer go as quickly as I can and I find that my breathing is off and my additional ballast [] read more »

AJ Bell London Triathlon – my first ever triath...

I was so excited about taking part in the 20th Anniversary AJ Bell London Triathlon that I woke up early, which was completely unnecessary.
