I ran a 10K!!! I was going to lead up to that with some sort of suspense building preamble… apparently I am excited about it and I blurted it out just like that! A couple of months ago, when it seemed very far off in both time and running ability, I entered the Thruxton 10k… Read More I did a running thing…
For the uninitiated amongst you a Paddington bear in my wierd brain equates to a personal best. There is (un)complicated reasoning involving the similarity of the initial letters of each phrase and the way my brain associated things… (if you want one, there is an explanation here…but it is fairly self explanatory) So the PB…it… Read More It is New Paddington Day!!
After April’s disastrous get myself up early challenge where I discovered that I might actually be a panda I thought I might choose a challenge for May that does not involve dragging myself out of bed at an unsociable hour (unless I want to…) This, coupled with my recent arm drama has led me… Read More Extra: May Challenge
**Warning…and apologies for the upcoming unoriginal joke…** Day 308 Friday: Friday was run day! it was also pouring down with rain all day day! which did not bode well for the final day I had to do a training run for the 10k!

Day 300 (Thursday) Maybe it was all the Paddington Bear excitement, maybe it was the excessive amount of dancing, or maybe it was the fact that I had very twitchy legs on Wednesday night therefore didn’t sleep particularly well… What ever the reason…Thursday was a “walk only” day… I was sleepy… Read More Day 300 & 301 Walking and Running
And I lost 😦 I am sorry, I know I said I would do the early thing every day, but it just didn’t work! I tried, I got up as I said I would at 6am, I went to the bathroom and spent a good 15-20 mins arguing with myself (in my head, obviously) about… Read More Day 287: I valiently fought a battle with the morning
I have PT on a Tuesday! Mind you it was an awesome way to improve a Tuesday 😀 Awesome but hard which, to be honest, is a good thing in a PT session…If it were dull and easy it would be Zumba not worth it. we started off with the normal quick cross trainer workout and… Read More Day 285: Just when I was getting used to Wednesdays…
Ok…I was out of title inspiration so just pretend I called this post something awesome and witty! I’ll admit it…the walk only day on Monday did me good! I awoke on Tuesday feeling like a human person… (shhh…yes…I know that is highly unlikely even with rest!) I managed a 2.7km walk at lunchtime even though… Read More Day 278: Insert running reference here
Ok..not a traffic warden, a parking services attendant… either way it was a person who was going to give me a parking fine if they got to my car and noticed that I had not paid for parking as I should have done… (note, I do normally pay for parking, but I have a slight… Read More Day 274: Running around a traffic warden
