I've been loosely following a beginner marathon programme already for months but didn't want to bore you all to death with my running updates so now that it's 16 weeks today (what?!? )I thought I'd start my weekly marathon training updates, to keep me accountable and take note of my progress. Ironically, my first week… Continue reading Sunday Run Down #1 Running and Stuff…
I've decided to quit alcohol. Today I woke up feeling fresh and ready to take on the day, as I type its currently 9.30am and I've already done 3 loads of washing, the same however, can't be said for last Sunday. Last Sunday, I had a hangover, I felt rough, I was sick, it was… Continue reading Going sober
*NOTE this post is all about running. Since my last running update, where I completely failed miserably at life, I've gradually found my running feet again! Currently I run most Saturdays with a running club and every Wednesday with two friends who are also training for the marathon. The rest of the week I run… Continue reading Ready, set, GO!
I'm so unfit! Remember the Angela that worked out 6 sometimes 7 times a week? She's gone, the last two months have dragged her down in a multitude of sins including her returning old friend the chocolate addiction, a lack of love for the grey skies and colder weather, a mild chest infection and a… Continue reading Two steps back….or ten

Instead I've been loving aggressive, adrenalin pumping, testosterone boosting workouts. Yes I said testosterone boosting and yes I'm… Continue reading Feminist Fitness
I'm currently living in a building site of a bedroom, well not exactly living in it, I've relocated to the next room until work is finished in mine. Who knew I'd be living HERE long enough to have to re-decorate? Meh! We really only have ourselves to blame, we've been dipping into our house fund… Continue reading Pinch, Punch
In the usual January style, the gym is jam packed with all the new year resolutioners out in force. Most of the regulars are complaining as usual but I am totally loving the buzz in the gym at the moment and let's be honest we were all there once too. In fact I have to… Continue reading Up and running
Yeah, so I've been failing at blogging of late, even my Fit Friday's have fallen by the way side the last couple of weeks, just the blogging, I have still been working out. Honest! I feel like I've been lacking time and the brain power to blog. I think it's the change in weather but… Continue reading Blogging. FAIL
I had a pretty hectic weekend and by hectic I mean, too many late nights and too much alcohol. I had a family Golden Wedding party on Saturday then Kevin's final race on Sunday. In case you are interested Kevin ended up 2nd in his championship not bad for a rookie in my opinion but… Continue reading Fit Friday(Saturday)-Week 5
