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!
Bazumbas. Jubilees. Nunga Nungas. Baby Feeders. Tattas. Boobies. Fiery Biscuits. Melons. Fried Eggs. Danny DeVito’s or the Mitchel Brothers. Whether they are small, large, up near our chin or near our ankles - all us ladies have them and the majority of us have names for them. Just so you know, mine are my fiery … Continue reading BOOBIES! The difficulty of getting a sports bra correct!
Joe had this terrible illness last week. He was actually dying. His nose fell off, his bones had withered, he had lost all sight and his lungs had become home to tiny sharks who were chewing and biting his throat, causing him to cough his way through his slumber. Unfortunately, he passed this terrible illness … Continue reading BREAKING NEWS! I contracted Man Flu!!
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
