Back to my parkrun roots

I’ve finally finished planning my schedule until the end of June – hopefully, I’ll get to visit 10 ‘new-to-me’ parkruns in that time as well as a few more letters on my parkrun alphabet. However, I also want to get back to my parkrun roots. Southampton parkrun After running at Read more…


Is breathing essential?

So, how’s my training going? Well, if I didn’t need oxygen, I’d say ‘GREAT’, but that’s not the case 🙁 Unfortunately, my unhealthy start to 2019 continues. I’ve just got over the worst case of sinusitis imaginable and have now got a cold. I’ve got a very annoying cough and Read more…


Did it! My first parkrun of 2019.

Multiple queues of people in the funnel at Southampton parkrun

I’ve seen a lot of posts on social media about people taking part in RED January whereby they take part in exercise every day to improve their mental health (amongst other benefits). I would have been interested in taking part, but I’ve really not been well enough to exercise so Read more…


Funnel managing

I’ve been unwell since 22nd December, so I was disappointed not to be able to take part in parkrun on New Year’s Day, not the first ordinary parkrun of the year on 5th January. Stuart was feeling fine, so we agreed that we would go to parkrun together and he Read more…

Preparing for Southampton MoRun

A road that goes off into the distance.

Southampton MoRun is fast approaching, and I’ll be honest that my preparations have not been ideal thus far. I’ve only done 13 runs over 9km so far in 2018. The last time I ran that far was at Thunder Run in July. My most recent parkruns I had plans to Read more…


Two parkruns in a row at Southampton

Tamsyn's Strava stats from September 2018

I’ve been doing a bit of parkrun tourism recently, so it was great to do two parkruns at Southampton.  I’m getting ever slower, but it was lovely to be able to catch up with friends. It’s hilarious that it says it was my fastest time this year. It’s my fastest Read more…

Two runs in a row at Southampton parkrun

Wet tarmac

Yesterday was my first buggy run at Southampton parkrun for a number of weeks. I’ve missed a few because of being in Warwick for the parkrun Ambassadors Conference, then I was in Tenby for the Long Course Weekend. After that, I was at Thunder Run. Last weekend, I had relatives Read more…


Climbing a small mountain

Yosemite Valley, USA

I did barely any running in April, so it was nice to see an improvement in May. Let’s hope June is better! After a good run with Rachel yesterday, I had a fairly slow run at Southampton parkrun today: I hope next week’s run is better!
