I am about a quarter of the way through another 100 Day Challenge, so far it's going well. Today I was up early for the 8 - 4 shift at work. I stopped for groceries on the way home, did some laundry and a little bit of tidying up then made dinne... Read more

I remember the days when I didn't analyse what I was eating. If I fancied chocolate I ate it, dinner wasn't complete without dessert, and dessert didn't mean fruit or fat free yogurt. Knowledge is a powerful tool and I'm much happier being aware... Read more

Running frustrations
Monday, July 22, 2013      11 comments

I have been a little frustrated with my running lately. I know I have not been doing enough since I came back from Tenerife, but even so, my pace is rubbish. My 5K time is anything from 4-8 minutes slower than last year, don't even ask about 10K... Read more

After taking a few weeks break from SP people it is good to be back again. I like to feel that this is where I am accountable to myself and where I will get lots of support and encouragement from people who feel the same. I feel I should be ba... Read more
Not feeling it
Monday, June 10, 2013      11 comments

Lately I have been feeling a little out of sorts. Not sure why but just not my usual self. I have not done much running and my only exercise is walking the dog and even those minutes have not been added to my tracker. So....I have decided to ... Read more
Tees Barrage 10K
Wednesday, May 08, 2013      12 comments

We were very lucky to have such a lovely day for the race today, bright and sunny but not too hot with just enough breeze to stay comfortable. I ran the first couple of kms without walking then did 3 mins run, 40 secs walk. This is what I have u... Read more

After being ill since New Years day, today I'm finally beginning to feel better. We had a morning at the beach with the dog to blow away the cob-webs and walked for an hour or so. This afternoon I have been catching up on laundry and doing a lit... Read more
Todays 10K race.
Sunday, September 02, 2012      12 comments

The race....hmmmm... not too sure I enjoyed it that much. For starters I slept in, somehow set my alarm half an hour later than I intended. Not the best start. I got to my car park before the road closures so that was fine but the footpath to ac... Read more
Summer start over

It has been 12 days since my last run and even longer since I was last at the pool. I have been laid low by a cold and a cough and feeling pretty yuk. I'm still not 100% but I'm desperate to get my running shoes on again. After work tomorrow I'm... Read more
Coastal walkway

A lovely sunny morning, although rather cool, took me to the coastal walkway. Just a nice easy 7km run without a hill in sight. Not too many people out so pretty much had ... Read more
A week of 2 races.
Sunday, May 13, 2012      6 comments

Two races in the same week isn't really ideal, but for me these two have been great. On Monday I did the Tees Barrage 10K with great weather conditions after a wet and cold few weeks preceding the race. I know I have a tendency to start out too ... Read more

Tomorrow is my first race this year, not doing many this year and can you believe that the first two are in the same week! 10K tomorrow then 5K next Sunday. After that nothing planned until Sept. I'm feeling slightly nervous, I haven't done 10k ... Read more
