Running a marathon

I’m not sure if I’ll ever get round to running an actual marathon. I do like running, well let’s say sometimes I like it – I’ve run numerous 10ks and half marathon. But a marathon, well that just seems like too much hard work. I think it’s the training runs that put me off, the…

Running Routes of America

I’ve run on the streets of New York, round many London landmarks and even from Coogee to Bondi in Sydney – so of course when I went to America at the beginning of the year I knew I had to find some great places to go running. I was lucky enough to run along not just…

The BIG day – Run to the Beat

 It’s been a busy old summer – with holidays, hen do’s and LOTS of weddings (my facebook friends think I’ve started crashing weddings) but somehow I managed to fit in a bit of training too for Run to the Beat – a 10K run.  Most of my training came in the form of Fitness First…

Integra training

Before I started to exercise a lot I never had any aches and pains – but during the training for my last half marathon I started to get really tight hamstrings, particularly on my left leg. Of course I tried the basic massaging, stretching and used rollers to try and ease the pain, but never…

Half marathon: 2 weeks to go….

Spatone running clinic

So I went and did something really stupid….. I signed up for another half marathon. Nearly three years ago now I completed my first half marathon and finished it around 2 hours and 20 minutes. Quite good for a girl who literally couldn’t run down the road a couple of years before that. And after…

The first was yoga at the Blue Cow Studio in…

A walk in the park….

Sometimes I really hate exercise! This normally occurs very early in the morning, like my crazy 6.30am start yesterday – yep a Saturday! Okay, lets rewind….. a couple of moths ago two friends (off the back of the Olympics excitement) had a brilliant idea that we should all do a 10K. We’d all done one…
