Project Energise: Days 22 to 27 still (hard) going

This week has been hard work. I have been moving but not as intensely as I was in the previous week. Not as intensely as I would like really, because I know the more I do the better I feel. This much I have proven to myself over and over, and, with exercise at least…… Continue reading Project Energise: Days 22 to 27 still (hard) going

Project Energise: Day 16 – 21 this week in pictures

We all knew it would come to this 🙂 A round up post with lots of pictures, that is… I mean it happens every time I do a project like this because sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. Luckily for me, I have managed to stop it getting in the way of exercise…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 16 – 21 this week in pictures

Slight change of plans…

Having made a huge sweeping statement about completing squatober this year, I have swiftly reconsidered! I already have a fairly heavy 5 days a week lifting programme which is designed for me to get me ready for my competitions. When I considered the reality of doing another 5 days (at least) a week heavy lifting…… Continue reading Slight change of plans…

Running and walking and melting…

Sometimes I wonder why I sign up for the things I sign up for… Even more pressing a question is why I sign up for these things in July! In case you hadn’t realised we had a mini heatwave here in the UK last week. Compared to other places with hotter weather, and more consistent…… Continue reading Running and walking and melting…

Yes, I know…it is totally already February… but it is still pretty close to the start so it is all good 🙂 After the loveliness that was January with janathon and Yoga Dedicate from Yoga with Adriene and of course, walking 100 miles across the month (well 106 actually but you get the point) I…… Continue reading February here we come…

Janathon day 14: I might be improving…

Today was day 13 of the 30 days of yoga I have been doing, it actually felt good 🙂 not easy, but like I might be improving 😀 The wide legged forward fold made me slightly nostalgic though…I was directed to put my head on the floor if it was possible. It wasn’t…but I wasn’t…… Continue reading Janathon day 14: I might be improving…

Janathon day 13: this is not going to be a big surprise…

There is a song that implies that if you go down to the woods today you will be in for a big surprise… Well I did go to the woods today, and the biggest surprise I got was this sign: Luckily there were none in evidence at all or it would have been a much…… Continue reading Janathon day 13: this is not going to be a big surprise…

Janathon day 5: the late night yoga club…

It’s not much of a club to be honest… it only has me in it. But I do seem to be doing my yoga late at night at the moment… It was day 4 of yoga Dedicate with Yoga with Adrien and it was a nice quick 20 min session today 🙂 I liked it…… Continue reading Janathon day 5: the late night yoga club…

Janathon day 3: a day of two halves…

I guess every day has two halves really but what I mean is there was quite a contrast between the morning and the afternoon!! The contained a personal training session with Matt which involves lovely deadlifts and farmers walks along with a cardio circuit which involved burpees, core bag clean and presses and the dreaded…… Continue reading Janathon day 3: a day of two halves…

PWG Week two: Physio and other such exciting fun!

Last week started off with a fun and exciting trip to the fracture clinic. Actually it was a very good visit to the fracture clinic as I finally found out what has been going on in my ankle all this time. Apparently I had an avulsion fracture, which is where you fall over and tear…… Continue reading PWG Week two: Physio and other such exciting fun!
