Eating healthily and trying MYHK

MYHK pea risotto

I’ve been working hard to eat healthily this year. I’m fortunate enough to be supported by The Athlete’s Palate, but it’s still hard for me. I expected to have an increased appetite whilst marathon training (especially as a breastfeeding mum), but I’d forgotten that that hunger sometimes lingers after the Read more…


The Athlete’s Palate

The Athlete's Palate Ambassador

I’d been hoping to share this post with you a while ago, but I’ve had more than my fair share of setbacks. Firstly, I had a cold, then Baby M hit the dreaded ‘4 month sleep regression’ early (cue waking every 45 minutes at night!!!) and the finally, my beloved Read more…


Banana Bready-cake

Last week I was chatting to Sam (my nutrition coach from Solent Strength + Nutrition) and he suggested that I could try making some banana bread using protein powder. This would be ideal for my long swim next weekend. I don’t often bake, despite I’ve just got this nice machine Read more…


My first DNF and I’m OK about it

DNF

Everything seems to have been going so well recently. My running has been going well, I achieved a new PB for distance swimming and I’m starting to work with a nutrition coach, so I’ve been feeling positive. However, my home is a bit chaotic as I’ve not kept on top Read more…


Free ebook

OK, so I’ve posted a few times about New Year’s Resolutions and taken part in various debates online about whether or not they work, but whatever you think, there’s nothing stopping you from trying to change your life and doing it one small step at a time is a move Read more…

Top 10 things not to eat whilst cycling

This was so funny that I had to share it: Global Cycling Network is a great channel to subscribe to on YouTube. There is a combination of humorous videos and ones with useful and informative content. Here are a couple of other videos that amused me: Top Ten things not Read more…


Day 6 of Pyrenees Tri Camp with Embrace Sports

Tuesday started with a ‘fun’ aquathlon. Before my injuries, I had hoped that I might not be last or at least that I might not be last out of the water and that this would spur me on to run as hard as possible, but my painful arm put paid Read more…


Fresh

Here is my IDEAfit photo a day image for March 27th: Fresh. I toyed with the idea of joining the Lordshill social run this evening, but was so tired that I thought I’d be better off spending a bit of time organising at home and going to bed early. I Read more…


Weekend round up

It’s been another hectic weekend, where I’ve managed to cram in an awful lot and have no idea how I’ve managed it. I’ll try to keep this post briefer than the last one, but brevity is not my forte! A while back, I answered a Triathlon Industry Association survey and Read more…
