Ramblings of running addict!

Time for a 2016 update methinks!  

After a few pretty awful years following a bereavement and then my chick fleeing the nest to university i think I am finally coming back to the surface!  Finally been injury free for a good couple of months now (thanks to an extremely tough and brilliant physio who has given me a set of exercises with a weighted rucksack)  I really really am hoping I can get back to more running/races this year! 

I am also hoping that this year i can start to run with the poo who is now nearly 18 months old although tentative attempts so far have included grabbing onto my legion grim death and diagonally shooting across in front of me when I least expect it! Maybe I will take it slowly! :)

The Lost Week! 😂

Hi all, I've been a bit quiet the last week or so - mainly because being away with friends enjoying myself has worn me out!! 😜 I did manage to get a couple of runs in while I was away and a run with a non runner that has cemented in place something we...

I needed that!! 😊😊

Afternoon all! Yes, I finally gave in - i have sat on my hands (well my legs more like! 😉) for over 2 weeks now - just slowly plodding around with the poos and kettle belling every other day - I did get some acupuncture last Wednesday as well (think I...

Evening all! Hope all the training plans are going well and everyone is put there either sloshing through puddles or sliding about on the ice rink! Its the latter here at the moment and thankfully (so far) a very cheap pair of boots I bought last week a...

Me again - 3 times this week!

Hi all! Well as you can probably guess I am off this week hence the larger amount of blogging / running and even uploading of photos!! (I thought it was time for a profile pic change - the photos I have uploaded on here are from quite a while ago!!) My ...

Things that begin with T

Hi all!   Well, after catching up with everyone over the weekend and seeing what you are all getting up to (mostly things that begin with T - threshold, tempo, torture!!) I decided that Tuesdays little 4 mile trot would not do! I haven't tried a torture...

4 seasons in one run!
