As usual, I had a busy weekend, so there wasn’t much time to be able to update my blog, but I did manage to get a couple of runs in. I can also confirm that I completed parkrun #250 🙂 It was really nice to get home and receive the following Read more…


Getting back on track for Reading Half Marathon and testing GearBunch leggings

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…


A week where I managed to swim, cycle and run (at last!)

Wow – what a week! 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 and Read more…


I managed a sprint tri in the space of a week

Fitness instructor course materials

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…


Illness stops play

Back to being ‘Productive’

Stopwatch

Veri Ivanova After a rare night out on Friday (by rare, I mean the first time that Stuart and I have gone out since I had Baby M), I really didn’t want to get up on Saturday morning. Stuart, M and I arrived early enough at parkrun for us both Read more…


Pacing at parkrun

Close up of watch for pacing

.A few weeks ago, one of my friends commented on Facebook that her 8-year-old son was speeding up. She felt she was holding him back at parkrun. At the time, he was running at around 27 minutes. I felt that pacing at parkrun shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. Read more…
