End of the Season

I met Emily about a month ago at a kid’s birthday party.  That’s where we, parents, meet up these days… or during the coffee shop for morning fix. She asked if I would be okay to type an end of season blog having written my first one at the start of the season around February/March. To be honest I’ve been trying to find...

Towards a Better Me: Part 9

Category : FITNESS, LIFE

  The Fear.  Firstly, my apologies for the lack updates. I had been put on a training ban by my doctor while an investigation into what happened with my face during the 5k took place (my face dropped on one side half way through the race). This meant I had no training and nothing really to blog about for two weeks. And then onc...

It always feels like it one step forward two steps back. Every time I seem to make progress towards potentially having a baby, some new obstacle rears...

Towards A Better Me: Part 6

Category : BODY, FITNESS, LIFE

Back in the Saddle   Last week I let pain and fear throw me. But this is a new week, and it’s time to get back in the saddle. As I said before, it’s a marathon not a sprint. It is ok to fall down, it’s human. What is important is that you pick yourself back up and try again. So, I am dusting myself and getting back on ...

Towards a Better Me: Part Five

A Little Stumble   Pain and me are not great friends, we aren’t even close acquaintances. I was just never any good coping with any small niggle. So much so it’s become a bit of a running joke among my family and friends. My Ma has stated numerous times that she wants to be nowhere near me if I ever go into labour. One of my col...

Holidays – Giving Yourself A Break

Category : RANT, SPORT

So it’s the Sunday before I go back to work and I am here on my couch, enjoying the last of the Christmas biscuits (which are delicious by the way) and I feel both proud and ashamed. Before the break I had high hopes of keeping up with my training programme while back at my folks. I had time to rest and train. I would really im...
