Well, this is a pretty random post to be honest with you! It’s not every day that I write things like this, but after going on a run last week, I felt inspired to write about my experience! It was a warm, sunny day so I’d decided to go for a run. Rather foolishly I’ve entered the Cardiff Half Marathon in October so I thought I’d better make a start on my half marathon training plan! As usual I checked the weather before setting off and settled on a t-shirt and shorts because it was a very warm day. I… [Read More]
Over the course of the past year, I’ve found myself becoming more and more obsessed with running. A friend of mine told me that once I started running, it wouldn’t be long before I caught the ‘running bug’. Initially I dismissed this idea, but now I have to agree with her and say that I’ve well and truly caught the running bug! At the beginning of last year I struggled to run 1k, so I’m pretty proud of the fact that today I ran 5k and got a new PB of 30 minutes 17 seconds. That’s non-stop running at a… [Read More]
It’s now been one month since I started using SlimFast and following their plan to lose weight. I wrote last month about how I was lucky enough to be invited to meet SlimFast along with their brand ambassador, Alexandra Burke, for lunch and to find out more about their products. I learnt so much at the meeting and ever since, I’ve had so much fun exploring all the different foods that their range offers. From the porridges for breakfast, (golden syrup is my favourite), to the snacks, meal replacement bars, shakes and noodle pots, I love them all! I’m finding… [Read More]
One week today I’ll be taking part in the Women’s Running 5K Race Series for the NSPCC. You can sponsor me here. Also this week, I managed to get a new personal best for 5k which was 31 minutes and 55 seconds. I also managed to break through the 5k barrier and run 6.32km, so it’s been a pretty good week!
Oh my goodness me. I can’t believe I actually managed to convince my husband to take part in a 2k family fun run with me and our five year old twins, but I did! My husband is the type of person who drives to the shops when he could walk it in five minutes. He always moans when we go to pick our girls up together as I’d rather walk and stop off at the park on the way home. If my husband had it his way, we’d go in the car, pick them up and return home straight away!… [Read More]
In 2016 I started running. I’d had various attempts at this over the years, but from around October 2016, I’ve really stuck at it. When the nights drew in and the weather became colder, I hung up my running shoes in favour of some indoor spinning classes, but now that Spring is here, I’ve invested in a new pair of fancy running trainers and I’ve started pounding the pavement once again. In 2016 I completed the 5k Mo Run in November. That was the last time I’d ran in 2016. After weeks of spin classes, I remembered that my friend… [Read More]
Having a hobby is something that people tend to think the elderly have. However, that’s not the case at all. I’m 30 years old and I have lots of hobbies. Hobbies that I wish I had more time for! Hobbies are great because you can learn a new skill, meet new people, possibly even forge a new career! Hobbies also helps you to do something for yourself. A little ‘me-time’, a little self indulgence, and who doesn’t need a bit of that now and again! I know I do! So without further ado here are five hobbies that you simply… [Read More]
Here’s hoping that these new Asics running shoes will help my run better!
I remember writing a post back in 2016 after completing the 5k mo run. Before that 5k, I’d taken part in a few 5k’s before, but I’d never taken them seriously. I’d usually walk a bit, then run a bit, then walk a bit, but I knew that I wanted to up my running! That’s why I took part in the 5k mo run. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed it. As such, when one of my friends suggested that I join her in completing the St Davids Day 10k run, I happily signed up whilst thinking… [Read More]
I took part in and completed my first ever 10k today!
