Training Weekly: Chicago week 6/16

I can’t tell you how petrified it makes me that we’re starting week 6 already. How?! It honestly feels like last week that I was wondering whether my knee would make it round a 5k parkrun. Anyway, plans for this week. I don’t think there’s […]

Training Weekly: Chicago week 5/16

It’s been 4 years since I trained for an Autumn marathon (or 2!!) and I’d completely forgotten how much I love summer training. Sunny evenings, post run ice creams and ice cold smoothies. But this week we are due a heat wave with highs in […]

Bournemouth Parkrun

After years of missing out through coaching on a Saturday morning, I finally lost my Parkrun virginity at Bournemouth on 1st December 2018. And it was everything I’d dreamt it would be! Why Bournemouth Parkrun? Quite simply, because Bournemouth Parkrun, is my home game. It’s […]

Training Weekly: Chicago week 2/16

After a much better first week of marathon training than I was expecting, I’m actually quite excited to build on it this week. It’s going to be a busy one. I don’t know about you, but I always feel like the summer is more social. We […]

Training Weekly: Chicago week 1/16

Time is a fickle beast, isn’t it? When you want it to go fast, it slows down, and when you want it to slow down, it speeds up. In the blink of an eye, 9 weeks have passed since the London marathon at the end […]

Running, My Love….

Running, My Love….

It’s safe to say that the lack of running over the last 6 weeks has left a serious hole in my life. I’d even go as far as saying that I feel like I’ve lost my best friend. Sure, I’ve successfully replaced the physical aspects, […]
