My buddy messaged me yesterday to say she just couldn’t stop doubting herself, and whilst I reeled off (with ease) the 1 million reasons why she really should never doubt herself, the things I see in her every day that make her an incredible human! I couldn’t help but feel like a total hypocrite because […]
When everything goes right you have to stop and soak it up, inhale it hard and don’t diminish your moment! Training hard, watching the clock and the scales can be such a results driven game. It’s easy to forget the feeling, the love, the passion for what you’re doing, for what I’m doing.
I’ve been flirting with an ITB flare up for a week or two. This is my bodies go to injury, I know it well and it has meant being sensible-ish, well more sensible than I normally am; Listening intently, stretching, and not pushing my running all that hard. I am still trying desperately to get […]

Well the first full week of marathon training is done! It felt a little strange to kick things off again. When I decided to run my first marathon I had a really slow build up. I knew I was running it about 4 months before my training had to start. I kept fit and active […]
I can’t quite believe it’s been two months since I crossed the finish line at Brighton and today sees the start of marathon training for Amsterdam. In the two months since Brighton I’ve been running, and doing a few classes, but I’ve also been injured. In the last 2 weeks I’ve mustered up a measly […]
On the weekend it was my first official race since the marathon. A nice and easy, flat local route; short distance, full of friends, PB in the bag, what could go wrong? Turns out quite a lot. Before I get in to me, let’s talk about the race. It was sold out way sooner than […]
