Running with my 6 year old girl

Share Button

Yesterday my daughter and I went out for a run together. She is 6 and has been asking if she can run with me for a while so I said that of course she could, but that I wanted to get her some trainers first. We went shopping and I have to say, like mother

Final Juneathon post!

Yes, finally! The last day of Juneathon and I can stop blogging every day! Juneathon has been a great exercise, but it has been the blogging part that has been the challenge as I usually do some form of exercise every day anyhow, even if it is just my plank. But usually I wait until

This weekend in June is one of my favourite weekends of the year. It is the weekend before my Birthday, and I remain, even as I approach 40, childlike in my excitement of my imminent birthday each year. I love the build up to things almost as much as I love the thing, be it

I managed to get a run in after work, and before Pete went out to the running club. I needed that run and really enjoyed it! I worked without a break ( mainly sitting a desk on a computer with some meetings thrown in for good measure) for around 9 hours straight today, and my

Club run this morning, plus a bit more about cake

Today has got off to a fabulous start, and it’s still only 10.30 am. Was up at 6am (on a Sunday! – do I get a medal for that?) and met some other lovely Stotfold Runners at 7am for a 10k run. Ange, Rosie and I ran / walked at a comfortable pace. 5 minutes

The importance of nail colour when running

I was quite pleased with my running look today because my nails are co-ordinated with my top: Terribly important for a run, I’m sure you’ll agree. I really needed my run today after a day of spreadsheets! Today my run was interrupted by a work call. I have been trying to get hold of someone

I went for a run super early before work this morning. I love running that early, it feels somehow even more virtuous. I thought it would be lovely and cool before 7am, but it seemed hotter than later in the day when it rained. I was drenched when I got back, even my shins were

Juneathon – are we nearly there yet?

Share Button

Mmm, it’s getting quite¬† challenging keeping it interesting / new when blogging every day. Today’s run was 5k, sort of mid-afternoon, which is when the break in my day happened after a morning of meetings. This is the worst time for me to run. I really like running before lunch rather than afterwards as I

It’s Fathers Day today, and Mr L got up at the crack of dawn to get a 10 mile run in before breakfast, nutcase that he is. Above is a photo of the present I got him, ready for him to add his Ultra medals to it when he gets them. It needs to be

I had been feeling nervous for this race all day. In my rational mind I was telling myself not to be a dick and to HTFU. But my body still had a churning stomach and a headache. What was that all about? It’s only bloody running! I had originally not wanted Pete to pace me,
