Walking the Ridgeway

It started with a half-hearted promise to myself to hit my Garmin Vivoactive steps target everyday in November (something I’ve been very inconsistent with since giving up work) and (after a very nice walk on Saturday) ended with the plan to walk the length of the Ridgeway over the winter of 2018/2019. The Ridgeway National…

90s throwback!

It all started with a chat with my hubby whilst on a gorgeous country walk around a local National Trust property. I was telling him about my love for Step Aerobics in the 90s and how it was the only aerobics class I could manage because of my lack of coordination and two left feet….

Running update

I’ve not written a blog since the 4th of July but, for once, this isn’t because I’ve been off plan but because I’ve been pretty busy and for the past two weeks I’ve been on my hols. Running I am still sticking to my training plan and am now up to 7 miles, with an…

My running week – 25th June to 1st July

Blimey I find it hard to motivate myself to run when it is so hot outside, but I find that having a training programme that I need to follow does help me to get the runs done. Last week we needed to do 2 miles, 2 miles and 4 miles and it all started well…

My running week – 18th to 24th June

Well it’s been a while since I’ve had a full week’s running to report on, but last week I achieved it … yippee. My plan required me to run 3 times (2 miles/2 miles and 3 miles) and I did indeed achieve this mileage.  However, it wasn’t as smooth as all that as I didn’t…

My running – May & June 2018

My running blogs have dwindled over the past few weeks because my running has also dwindled somewhat.  In fact, in May I only ran 3 times and in June (so far) I’ve only run twice (although both times were this week so I’m on a very small ‘roll’ at the moment!). As mentioned before in…

My running week – 23rd April to 29th April

This week I achieved that rarest of things for me – three runs in one week! Now that I have reduced my mileage to just three miles I am finding things much more manageable, my legs don’t ache after the runs and I don’t have the running munchies afterwards.  I have also started running with…

My running week – 26th March to 1st April

The best laid schemes of mice and men ….. I signed off my last running blog with hopes of running 3 times last week, needless to say this didn’t happen.  The weather, the Easter Bank Holiday and my own laziness conspired against me and I only actually managed 1 of my planned runs.  Oops.  However,…

My running week – 19th to 25th March

This week I’ve had a really nice, pressure free, running week.  I’ve concentrated on shorter distances and after one run of just 2.65 miles my legs wanted more when I got home, I guess as a result of the long runs I have been doing, this is definitely a new experience for me! I only…

My running week – 26th February to 5th March

The story of last week for many parts of the UK was the snow and the so called ‘beast from the east’.  We escaped the bad weather until Thursday when the snow came down pretty hard and the wind was particularly biting.  All had cleared by Sunday night but alas this wasn’t early enough to…
