There’s something elating about getting up early on a Saturday Morning. Said no chubby runner EVER. What is elating though is running with dinosaur pants on, wearing a Hygge band to bring more attention to your egg shaped fivehead and wearing a bright yellow jacket. Why I need to be seen and reflect all the … Continue reading #figleavesforgem
I hope you’re sat down for this, on Sunday we went for a 10km jog. I know. I’ve lost my mind. No medal, no t-shirt, not for charity. We just went out and did it. Joe and Simon too. We are just a family of absolute nutters. Our running routes on the canal are quite … Continue reading 10km of dreams!
My anxiety has been quite bad recently. If anyone says my name I get overwhelmed with negative thoughts and I start to feel like I have done something wrong. I went to see my Dr about my knee (still giving me jip – maybe I should just resign to the fact that I am a … Continue reading Running to the sound of Nature
Just to start, for those of you that don’t know me personally we have a wonderful Pupper named Simon. His full name is Simon James Stephanie Jamiroquai Astin. But that’s only on Sundays or when he’s misbehaving. I promised my now husband, then boyfriend, 6 years ago that we can get a dog. On two … Continue reading Simon fell in the canal 😦
Well, I did it. I did my second 10km for Charity. I beat my time from last year, I’ve beat my fundraising target, I have two new gorgeous running shirts and one wonderful medal to add to my collection but I feel so deflated. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed every second of it but … Continue reading Burnley 10km. Tears and Triumphs.
Yesterday I wasn’t up for running on Sunday. Zumba class was cancelled and I just felt so down. I hadn’t been out for 2 weeks and with Sunday on the horizon I needed to go out. I had gone through all the emotions today; excitement. Dread. Happiness. Sadness. At 4pm I knew Joe would be … Continue reading New Day. New Improvements
It’s the Burnley 10km this weekend and I’m not prepared for it at all. I was doing really well with my running and preparing for it but I had a panic attack a few weekends ago. I did write a blog about it, but I got scared about posting it so it is in the … Continue reading Feeling Like a Let Down
Last night on my outing I ended up ditching Couch 2 5km. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it, and it has helped me so much on this journey and I would encourage anyone who is new to running to download it and work their way through it. But I had had enough. During … Continue reading Goodbye Couch 2 5km
Well, here we are again. I have to apologise firstly, I haven’t been on and made a post in a while because I’ve had a really rubbish 10 days. I didn’t go out an do my couch 2 5km for the first time in 4 weeks and we ordered take away instead. I started to … Continue reading Apologies and a Police Chase
Second post in one day - look at me being all wonderful. Dobby the house elf is asleep beside me and Simon is snuggled into her. What a time to be alive! I completed my first run of c25km week 4 and let me tell you it was hard. So bloody hard. I left the … Continue reading Two Posts, One Run!
