Or 70, or 50…or even 10. So I’m going to hold my hands up and admit, I haven’t been running much lately at all…talking about running? Yes. Writing about Running? Yes…Dreaming about running even? Yep absolutely. But I’ve been a little busy with writing a new book (have you seen all those 5 star reviews?),…

So there has of course been a bit of excitement over the London Marathon ballot result this month…I didn’t get a slot in case you were wondering. Training for a spring marathon is always tricky for me, as the spring is my busiest time…and to be quite frank I just don’t need the extra stress….

People are obsessed with my size and it’s just so bloody annoying. The meant to be helpful comments from friends and family Oh you’ve lost weight? Erm nope…don’t think so, not last time I looked.

There are a million reasons why we run…well maybe not quite a million, but you get my drift. Our reasons are many and varied and at times they compete with each other…and here lies the problem. Many of us suffer with a lack of focus with our running, we just head out a few times…

My alarm went off at 5.45 am. I was child free. And I did not have to travel anywhere far today, I was up early so I could fit exercise into my day. It was cold. It was dark. I was tired. But I had committed to doing CrossFit this morning, and I had told…

It was cold over the weekend….and guess what? I got out of my warm bed before 8am TWICE, to head out into the cold to run. I know, I know…there must be something wrong with me…cos some of us struggle to do that even when its not cold, especially at the weekends. The thing is,…
