Tamsyn running at Brighton Marathon

So, today was the big day. Brighton Marathon. For the past few weeks, I’ve postponed everything saying that I would ‘do it after Brighton’. Getting ready on race morning Stu and I woke up at 5:30am and I sprang out of bed, ready to make my porridge. Today I opted Read more…


I’ve been to Hull and back…

I seem to be constantly playing catch up at the moment and don’t have enough time to blog. I joked with friends that Brighton will be the first marathon I’ve done without anyone to chat to on the way around and that perhaps I should use Siri with the WordPress Read more…


Last long run before Brighton

Here is today’s IDEAfit photo a day image to fit with the theme of ‘gratitude’. I am so grateful that I’ve got the most amazing husband. We’ve lived together for almost 16 years and I still think he’s (almost) perfect. Plus he takes me on dates to the ice-cream parlour! Read more…

No water on the hottest run of the year :-(

I wasn’t sure how I felt about doing Salisbury 10 mile. Two years ago, it was held on an incredibly hot day. I got a 5k PB, but then had to ask Irene to leave me as I was overheating. At the five-mile drinks station, I stopped and had three Read more…


One year in and the momentum has stalled

Tamsyn, Teri and Luana after Bramley 20

I had hoped that I was back to blogging, but I’ve not been well recently. This has had a couple of knock-on effects. Firstly, I’ve not had the energy to do much exercise and secondly, I’ve been too tired to blog. I’ve been to see my doctor for some blood Read more…
