R.E.D January Update #redjanuary

Back in December I wrote a blog post (find it here) explaining that I was taking part in R.E.D January. R.E.D (Run Every Day) January is all about raising money for Mind, the mental health charity.

My weigh in day for me is every Friday and I’m pleased to report that when I weighed in last Friday I’d lost 6lbs. I’m very happy with my progress! I’ve actually run 13.03k now. I’m running three times a week and already I can see the progress I’m making. I’m running better, more confidently and further each time. With every run I get a little faster too and I keep beating my previous 1k running time. With regard… [Read More]

As we enter 2014 and many of us plan to improve our lifestyles, cycling to work is an easy and practical way to get more exercise. The government Cycle to Work Scheme initiative is there to help make the transition from car to bike as easy and affordable as possible. During the last decade we have seen constant warnings about the problems effecting the earth such as our global warming, etc,, and how the things we do day-after-day could have a dramatic effect down the road. This can include those things we think nothing of, like leaving a light bulb… [Read More]
