Lymington Woodside parkrun Stuart and I visited Lymington parkrun as it’s one of the events that are 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

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!

M has been ill again this week, so I ended up not doing a midweek run. Then my friend Teri invited me to go for a bike ride on Friday morning. I love New Forest cycling, so I was definitely up for it. I had hoped to get myself organised Read more…

It was really nice to be back running at Southampton parkrun. I’m feeling stiff, tired and unfit, so I decided to do my best to enjoy my run. I know my fitness will come back when I get into a more regular programme of exercise. About 500m in, I caught Read more…

Wow – what a week! Swimming On Monday, I wasn’t feeling motivated to get in the pool. I think M knew that Stu was out with his friends watching the Superbowl on Sunday night, so she decided that she’d also like to be up partying. I got very little sleep Read more…

I had such great plans for the last couple of weeks, with intentions of getting my training for Reading Half Marathon and Swimathon back on track. Chicken pox (combined with teething, because one lot of pain isn’t enough for my tiny masochist!) decided that was not to be. Poor M Read more…

I really thought that I was going to get back into a routine of work, training and blogging with M starting nursery… but three weeks in and her attendance is 25% 🙁 The poor thing has picked up every illness going and shared it with the household, so I’ve not Read more…
