Marathon Diaries – 3
Posted on August 17, 2015 2 Comments
After a bit of a running blip I’ve managed to increase my miles back to my norm, but nowhere near as much as what I’ll need to do come official marathon training.
I’m currently pushing out 3 or 4 10ks a week. Totalling somewhere between 18 and 24 miles. But there Are also a few weeks where I have only managed 12-15 miles. I know I’m going to need to push this to 30 miles a week at least in the coming months and that’s a little terrifying.

It’s been a bit slow since our last check in. I came down with the flu which wiped me out for a few days. On My first day back to the real world my little cat got hit by a car, and it’s been a bit of an emotional roller-coaster ever since.
I’ve become sluggish and lethargic and unable to find the energy, time, or desire to get out. So last night I took my first baby steps and ran up to the vet hospital to visit our little dude. It was only just over 2 miles round trip but it was the push that I needed.
The Finish Line

As my world is consumed with thoughts of the BIG finishing line yet to come, I’m taking a moment to look back at a couple of my recent finishes.
Races can be so fun! I don’t really like to look at them as races though, as quite frankly I don’t have a competitive streak; I look at them as experiences. And I’m really enjoying the experiences and advancements in my running at the moment.
Windy Weekend Paddle

So for my sister’s 30th birthday I hooked us up with some Paddle Board lessons at our local water sports centre, Baker Academy.
We’d never attempted anything like it before. I have a kayak at home (used twice last year, *hangs head in shame*)! But that’s about as close as I get to water sports, oh and swimming, does that count?

So it is Official – I’ve put it out there on social media, told my family, friends and well whoever asks the question, “Hey, What’s new with you?”
I am running the Brighton Marathon on 17th April 2016.
Kinds of Kind

As an average human I consider myself to be fairly thoughtful and kind. As an average human I also know I have the neurotic tendency to look in and get a little stuck on me and my issues. I flitter between all the generalised habits of the average human and remain rather normal in an extremely comfortable way.
I see this picture all over the internet, from happiness ambassadors to lifestyle bloggers the message is clear. If we are going to be a little bit more extraordinary, we need to step out…

On any given day there are thousands of thoughts (more like a million in my head) circulating round our brain. Positive, negative, indifferent, and they are all holding power over us in one way or another. One thing we constantly overlook though is that we have a greater more amazing power within us, the power to choose. We can choose what is the truth we want to believe and bring into our lives and what quite frankly is mind waffle that is there purely as noise, noise we don’t need.

Following on from the amazing stories of 2014s Nikes women only Race Series ’We Own the Night’, I could not wait to get involved in whatever was going to happen this year!
All though it has a far less catchy name, this year’s event is not set to disappoint. The festival-style event will take place on Sunday, 21 June in Victoria Park, London. With promise of music, lights, tunnels, and apparently the unexpected! I’m pretty excited.

Italy hangs out at the top of my list of places I just love to go. We got engaged mid flight to Venice and I’ve had lovely explorations in Rome as well as some of the other major cities in Italy.I have to say I love it every time.
Last week we decided to book a last minute deal (I mean super last minute) and headed off to the Tuscany.
