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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Runners

Half-Marathon Memo #4: Race Day!

Well, the day finally came that has been looming over me for several months now – race day! For the past couple of weeks in particular I’ve felt the same sort of mix of nerves/excitement/dread that you used to get before an exam at school. Which is silly really, because who would care whether I […]

Half-Marathon Memo #3

It’s four weeks till race day and the glorious heat wave of July has disappeared. In its place are sharp winds, rain and even occasional thunderstorms. S’laters, summer! Whilst running in cooler temperatures is actually better, I’m a massive wuss when it comes to running in the rain. I know some people really dig it, […]

Half-Marathon Memo #2

Eight weeks until the much anticipated half-marathon, and it feels a bit like my body is telling me off for how I’ve been training so far. My shoulders are sore, my back is aching, my blisters have blisters and I can’t remember the last time my legs didn’t feel constantly clenched. To top it all […]
