Training sessions

Been doing some great stuff with a PT - my remit "make me run faster" so apart from "lose weight" we have been doing some really fun stuff - aero road running, agility ladder, dipping for cones and jumping over hurdles as well as bouncing a ball off a t...

I just keep trying

I am still working on the running - hard work trying to turn a donkey into a racehorse! Been doing agility ladder stuff, running on a bosu, jumping and playing hopscotch - all with the aim of me using my feet and not my legs to run - sounds odd but I cr...

Birmingham half marathon here...

So despite being absolutely bloody brilliant in my half ironman - even though I say so myself - I need to sort out my running - as I was in total agony during the run I've entered Birmingham half marathon - need to get off my **** and do some training -...

fat girl to iron girl!! (well...

So it's been a while ... On Sunday I did a half iron man! Not bad for a one time very fat girl - 7 hours 33 minutes ..... still got 10 (I know who would have thought you could gain weight!)pounds to go Have a very smug smile on my face and frankly I am ...

weight loss rollercoaster!

So after my trip to Spain and the 1 pound gain (shocking I know - obviously didn't have a very good time lol!) I lost 4 pounds the following week and don't exactly know how, because this week I think I did the same and went up half a pound - not much an...

weight loss Zero!

Hi All Just back from a weeks cycling in Spain with a friend - several miles later and only one major strop - I'm back - a pound heavier! Actually I as we almost had our daily calories in alcohol only gaining a pound was quite spectacular and sangria is...

tri again!

did another tri this morning - felt it was awful - seemed to be very lonely on the bike - but 11 minutes faster than last time - mostly on the run (the swim was much slower this time) New motto - compare me to me and not to worry what anyone else can do...

rain, rain go away!

I really hate this weather makes me just want to eat chocolate! I normally do a couple of sessions in the park on a Thursday but we are a fair weather lot  and this is not fair by any means.  So I moped around a bit and then thought "well if I can't mot...

new triathlon

I have just entered a new triathlon - so that's a bit scary - what is also scary is that it probably won't be very big so I will have to be on best running behaviour (I have done London but you can sort of hide in that one!) So it's Olympic distance and...

extrapulate that!

This morning I took a group out for my learn to run session - 3 miles very good, lovely ladies and it felt so good out there I managed another 6 afterwards - so feeling a little bit smug! So weight loss and training and more importantly doing events and...

Personal Best!

So despite the broken toes I managed a PB - knocked off 4 minutes of my last years run and 6 mins off overall - so proper chuffed! (can officially run 5km in 30 mins - think that makes me a runner!) Weigh in tomorrow Still quite hungry! Siz x

Broken toe!!

Just to let you know that I broke my little toe in February and then I broke the other little toe on the other foot (kicked a spin bike - don't ask) in May - so I have continued to run despite this - so I am still not at full potential! There that's my ...
