I combined these posts for two reasons, 1) I am officially tapering so less running to discuss and 2) I'm really bored of these posts so I guess you will be too.... Monday REST. Tuesday Hot Yoga. I haven't managed to get to Yoga for a while and the last few weeks have been suffering with… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #15 and #16 -Taper Time
Last week, Mandy, our group run leader, sent us out a message that she wanted us to run this weeks long run (16-20 miles) SOLO and with no music!!! The team all laughed when I replied that I run SOLO every damn week, about half a mile behind the group. I was being funny but… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #14 Solo or Disco?
As I start writing this, Mary Keitany has just crossed the finish line in London in 2 hours 17 minutes (her chip time hasn't been announced yet). INCREDIBLE!! That's a minute or so off my first HALF marathon time, haha! I'll be doing well if I manage the marathon in DOUBLE that time! So inspiring!… Continue reading Sunday Run Down… Unlucky #13
I'm getting so bad at posting these on a Sunday. Oooops! My race number arrived in the post on Saturday this is becoming very real! MONDAY I had my second sports massage at 5.30pm, Mondays are cross training days but Caroline advised not to exercise for at least 24 hours prior to the treatment so… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #12 Bruises, Bruno and a Breakthrough

This week was off, my diet was a shambles, I'm pretty sure I actually ate more chocolate than actual food. I really need to sort that out this week because although I probably weigh the same, I'm definitely bulging over my jeans more than usual. My training was, well..... MONDAY I did Yoga with Adrienne… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #7 Why am I doing this????
I've not abandoned my training, I just didn't have much to post about last week. Week 4 of marathon training involved 60 minutes hot yoga on Tuesday and 7.5miles on Wednesday an that was all! I even missed my long run which should have been 12 miles. I was so annoyed at myself because I… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #4 and #5
Monday I almost made it to my boxing class then got stuck in traffic FOREVER, well for a good 20 minutes at least, so I annoyed I missed it..again! Instead of admitting defeat I actually went to the gym and did a little HIT workout good but not as good as boxing. Tuesday Hot Yoga… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #3
I've been to the odd yoga class here and there, I've tried so hard several times to properly get into Yoga and as much as I love meditation and stretching nothing I tried ever seemed to click, either I wasn't feeling the love for the space or for the teacher or I just felt really… Continue reading HOT Yoga
Monday I missed boxing class. Again. Thankfully a very busy January and our end of month deadlines at work are over, I really wanted to celebrate this with a large bottle glass of Pinot and and even larger slab of Galaxy chocolate...instead I had a chai tea, lush bath and an early night. Tuesday 60mins… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #2
