It’s oh so quiet…

Kudos to those of you who get the 90s shout out in the post title. Yes, it has been quiet around here recently. Lots to say, but a little bit of writers block. It’s also hard to blog about running when you’re not running. Not because I don’t want to run, you understand. I’m really missing it at the moment, but my ankle is still not in a fit state to run, or really do much at all. It was back in July that I had the accident. Now it’s October and it’s not looking… View Post

Do you prioritise sleep enough?

Post in collaboration with TEMPURĀ® I LOVE sleeping. It’s strange, as when we are young, we want to stay up late, we pull all nighters and an early night is basically the worst thing in the world. Nowadays, I long for an early night and I seem to have a never-ending list of stuff that I need to do. Of course, what happens is that I get caught in a never-ending cycle of being too tired to achieve what I need to do, stay up to do it, don’t get it done, wake up tired,… View Post

The season of discount tents with Blacks

Post in collaboration with Blacks As I sit here typing this, I can’t believe that we are so close to September. It’s been a manic couple of months and I’m not sure where the time has gone. One of the things that you may have done over the summer holidays is to go camping. Or you may be thinking about going next year, or even with this heatwave expected to continue, be pondering a weekend break back to nature. I have to confess, I’m not the greatest camper. I coped with camping for the Spitfire… View Post

Rockalily Cuts

If you’ve been following me for a while, you will be aware that I really love my hair. And if you’re not aware, just look to the side panel. Yep, that’s me. A walking, talking mermaid. People often ask me where I get my hair done and it’s often got me shout outs in races. When I’m in town, people stop to chat. It’s a great conversation starter and the truth is, I feel more like me when I have colour in my hair. So in the current absence of running, while I’m on the… View Post

Life on the injury bench

My next blog post was supposed to be an update on my training for the Tallinn Marathon in September. Or it was supposed to be an announcement on my big target for next year. Unfortunately, both of those things are now on hold. I’m hopeful of next year’s goal, but I don’t want to announce it until I’m sure I can work for it. Yep. I’m on the injury bench and I am more than a little bit frustrated about it.     I have been struggling a bit in this hot weather to run,… View Post
