Yoga with a HIGH

As I’ve got older I’ve somehow become more scared of heights. When I was younger I seemed to be fearless – bombing down zip lines, jumping out of planes and going on the scariest of rides. Now I can barely look out of a tall building without having to steady myself. So last week when…

Running to the Beat

When I first did Run to the Beat back in 2010 it was my first half marathon, I managed it in 2 hours and 20 something minutes and was quite frankly – really knackered….. …..Especially after that gigantic hill in Greenwich I had to huff and puff my way up! So I’m really excited to…

Speedflex

After lots of running and cardio I wanted to embark on some more conditioning work, but still burn those calories and feel like I’d done a good workout.   And if it came down to it, if I had to admit it – one of my biggest body hang ups is definitely my arms –…

Half marathon: 2 weeks to go….

Yep its flown by…one minute I was signing up and the next I’m trying to get through the 10 mile training runs. And its been painful…. After my first 10K training run I brilliantly secured an injury. I’m still not completely sure what it was – but I’m convinced I somehow slightly tore my left…

Ready for take off?

Please fasten your seat belts and get ready for your first on board manicure…. My lovely friend Leanne recently let me in on a very lovely  secret when she introduced me to MW nails, based in the city and now in Spitalfields. Decked out like the inside of a plane, you can lie back and…

I heart spinning

I’ve had this sort of love affair with spinning for a while now. Even the thought of it about 5 years ago would bring me out in a cold sweat, then someone mentioned something about losing around 600 calories while taking part and having a bum of steel – so I thought I may as…
