I knew this would happen.
After the joy of my first two runs of 2019, my third and fourth were horrible.
Here are my excuses for yesterday’s non-event:
I was a little bit hungover
The biting north wind was hurting my ears and sinuses
I was running with Jenny and it was really slowing down our chat
Reluctant running at Gleneagles
I’ve just been running non-stop for 34 minutes.
I know – I’m as astonished as you are.

An unexpected and exciting email dropped late this afternoon – so the 45 mins I had set aside for Janathon were transferred to work time.

Is that the number of calories I burned today?
The number of millilitres of wine I drank last night?
Probably bang on.
600 is the number of grams I have lost after two weeks of Janathon.
That’s 1.3lb in old money.
Not impressed with myself.
“Yes but you’ve probably gained muscle weight,” my new friend in the Zumba class reassured me.
The day – and therefore the week – started well. When I dropped the boys off at nursery neither cried or made a fuss. This is a major breakthrough for the smaller one. I drove off through the rain smiling, wondering if maybe spring would actually come one day.
I think January is a great time […]
It was a mad rush and a £9 creche fee (plus a little bit of heartbreak running out on a crying one year old) but I made it to the gym today! Easing myself into my plan to try every class, I had booked pilates.
I went through a phase of pilates obsession when I was […]
