Running with an Olympian

Hello hello! What would you say if I told you that I spent yesterday morning running across the embankment dodging commuters with an Olympic athlete?! Confused? Well, don’t worry, I haven’t ditched my day job in hopes of Rio glory. I’m still very much a novice when it comes to all things fitness, which is […]

9 Ways to Motivate Yourself to Exercise When You’re Really Really Lazy

Obligatory new Nikes Instagram…. Hello! Regardless of the above photo, I have had a lacklustre few weeks when it comes to exercise. There are so many little false beliefs that keep telling myself, e.g. “it’s been so stressful with the house move”, “I’ve got too many work/social commitments to deal with”, “getting up early to exercise will just […]

Nike Women’s 10k #WeRunLondon

Hello hello! Yes, I did another 10k, cause I just can’t get enough of them. They’re challenging enough to collapse in a heap of relief at the finish line, yet not so gruelling that you sustain any long-term injuries or have to spend months in agonising training. After hearing all about how amazing the last Nike […]

#Hbloggers Fitness Event

It’s been about four months since I joined the Health Bloggers Community team as Features Editor and already so much has happened! I’ve commissioned interviews & guest experts for their blog, upped my email marketing game writing the weekly newsletters and met such a supportive online community who love connecting with each other and sharing ideas.

Unsubscribing from ‘Fitspiration’

I’ve been thinking for a while now about what we see as ‘fitspiration’, especially when it comes to measuring our goals and successes online. My views on selfies have always been mixed. While I don’t like the way that our culture has normalised this particular breed of narcissism (plus I need serious help when it comes […]

The Top Seven Green Superfoods, from Julie Montagu

I had the pleasure of attending ‘Superfood Sunday’ recently with triyoga teacher and nutritionist, Julie Montagu to celebrate the release of her first book, Superfoods. 55 of us took over the food court at Whole Foods Market in Kensington, as Julie led us through a dynamic vinyasa flow class that did my body a whole […]

Running 10k and Sleeping All Day

It’s kind of amazing what you can do when you’re motivated enough, isn’t it?! I’ve started setting myself monthly goals – nothing massive, just some targets to aim towards that will keep me on track and encourage me to take little right actions instead of endlessly procrastinating (something I’m prone to doing A LOT). When I […]

METcore at Form Studios – Review

I have to admit that Londoners are spoilt for choice when it comes to fitness, there’s practically a new studio opening every week! I’ve been focusing purely on running and yoga since January, so when my friend suggested the ‘METcore’ class at recent offering Form Studios, I thought it’d be fun to try a new challenge. […]

Bounce Below & Trip to Wales

I’m now back in London after spending a few days in Wales visiting my Mum and Dad. I had a great time doing all the things I love doing at home – going for country walks, running by the beach, drinking at the local & eating too many of my mums AMAZING chocolate raspberry brownies. But this […]

10K Training (AKA Tackling my Inner Sloth)

The start of 2015 brought fresh fitness resolutions that have been harder for me to stick to than originally thought. I blame the weather (excuse of champions!), but I know deep down that to truly get me into the groove, especially with running, I have to set myself a challenge & sign up to a […]
