26/02/21 – Morning reflection

This morning I went for a speedy 5km run. It was 2 degrees, a clear blue sky with the sun shining – ideal conditions. Once I got back home I noticed there was still steam rising off me so I went into the garden to stretch and cool down. The birds were chirping, the sunContinue reading “26/02/21 – Morning reflection”

24/02/21 – Morning exploring

I ran to Streatham Rockery his morning as I spotted it on a map and thought it looked interesting! And I wasn’t wrong. The run itself was chocked full of hills, but the Rockery was incredibly tranquil. I sat down for a minute to take in all the bird noise and fresh morning feeling. I’mContinue reading “24/02/21 – Morning exploring”

21/02/21 – Long run Sunday

I ran to Clapham Common and back today today. It was an absolute slog… Not enough food and water yesterday, and too thick of top when it’s 14 degrees – sweaty! I ended up tying my top up to get my tummy out to cool off! That’s a bucket list item to have enough confidenceContinue reading “21/02/21 – Long run Sunday”

07/02/21 – Snowy run!

It’s snowed all day here today. I went out for a nine mile run in it when it hadn’t yet settled on the pavements. It was wonderful, so refreshing and calm. I enjoyed all the nods of encouragement from passers by who were also out braving the elements. Later on today I devoured more ofContinue reading “07/02/21 – Snowy run!”

31/01/21 – Long run, achy legs

Decided I would head out on a slower pace today and see where it takes me. I ended up running nine miles! I’m very pleased with that. I listened to a chunk of my audio book and actually enjoyed myself. I think I’ve been pushing it too hard on every run, so I’m planning onContinue reading “31/01/21 – Long run, achy legs”

28/01/21 – I got out!

I set my alarm for 7am, raring to go for a run and… I went back to sleep. But! I ended up going at lunch and did a 29min 5k which I’m very pleased by. Most importantly because I found it tough but enjoyed it – a great way to blow off steam from work.Continue reading “28/01/21 – I got out!”

17/01/21 – Cycle and an egg!

Today’s weather was too good to miss out on so I hoped on my bike for a trip via Central London! I stopped off at tower Bridge to eat my first creme egg of the season then headed back home again. It was wonderful to get out into the sunshine and see London for theContinue reading “17/01/21 – Cycle and an egg!”

07/01/21 – Snowy cycling!

I finally got out on my bike this morning before work! I’m so so pleased that I did. It snowed whilst I was cycling and I had the biggest grin on my face (under all my layers!) I did a ten mile loop around our area. I’m hoping to up that over the next fewContinue reading “07/01/21 – Snowy cycling!”

20/12/20 – Cycling to de-stress

Life is quite hard right now, but I take solice in this blog as I know soon enough I’ll look back and this will all be harmless memories. It’s so hard having all our Christmas plans change last minute. All we can do is try to take less focus on Christmas day as an eventContinue reading “20/12/20 – Cycling to de-stress”

18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run

Started off today with a 8km run that I only mildly had to drag myself out of bed for this morning. I’m enjoying it a lot more recently, now that I’m running for the fun of running, rather than being so competitive with myself and others. I still have a while to go yet, butContinue reading “18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run”
