An acceptance of yoga

A very strange thing has happened. If you know me, or have followed me for a while, you will know that I hate yoga. Hate, loathe, detest, despise. Strong words, but I used to find it very stressful. I HATE focussing on breathing and I HATE listening to other people breathe even more. Yes, I know breathing is good because not breathing leads to unfortunate consequences, but that doesn’t mean I want to hear it. I’m also not very bendy. I get confused and tied up in knots. I can’t do a crow. Telling me… View Post

Sports Bra Review: Hunkemöller Doutzen Sport

It’s been a while since I’ve tried out a different style of sports bra, so I was pleased when Dutch brand, Hunkemöller, got in touch to invite me to try out a product from their Doutzen Sport line. With items retailing between £8-£40, this is a reasonably priced line of visually very attractive clothing, incorporating style with functionality. With so many pretty items, it was difficult to choose, but I knew I had to try out the Doutzen Sport The Pro Level 3 Sports Bra. According to the website, the Hunkemöller Doutzen Sport bra “has a… View Post

Running Naked Without A Watch

No, not literally running naked. Although if that is your thing, I believe there’s a 5k race in Kent somewhere you can do in the buff. No, I’m talking about running without a watch. When I started running, I didn’t have a fancy watch. Couldn’t afford one. Instead, I used a stopwatch and mapped out routes on Map My Run. Then, when I got a bit more into it, I downloaded Runkeeper. I’d use it to check my speed and distance at the end, but after pressing play, I’d put it into my waist pack… View Post

Vintage style of a fitness blogger

Post in collaboration with Rokit When I’m not in lycra or chilling out in my pyjamas, I’m often found in vintage style clothing. I love the rockabilly look, and I’m also a huge fan of classic 40s cuts. Give me a pencil skirt and high heels, or a big swing dress and I’m happy. Winged eyeliner, bettie bangs, flowers in the hair – I love it all. If we have to wear clothes, then I believe we should have fun with them and express our personality.     If you follow me on instagram, you’ll… View Post

How I Fell In Love With Running Again

I’ve had a little bit of a love/hate relationship with running over the last few months. I loved getting my 50th parkrun milestone done at last, but I hated how painful some of the runs felt on the way. I have been bored running around where I live, I’ve lacked the motivation to get faster, but at the same time, I’ve missed running faster. There’s no pleasing me sometimes. I think a large part of it has come from the fact that I was focussing much more on covering distance, rather than covering shorter distances… View Post
