So let’s get one thing straight….I am a runner…thats what I do, however what you might not know is I am also quite partial to trying other fitness stuff too…I swim, I cycle, I do yoga (badly) and very occasionally I do try more extreme things like circuit training, body pump and kettlebells, I just never…

I love running in Central London, and I don’t even mind running in the cold (or rain) so I was excited about having Cancer Research’s Winter Run as my first race of 2016 in my diary…HOWEVER….I didn’t actually do much training in preparation. Well I did lots of cross training, just very few runs…even to…

Now I am not the greatest lover of the gym, although I do have a membership which I use mainly for bodypump and yoga, and the odd treadmill session, but whenever I am in the gym I often wonder whether I should get myself a personal trainer to help me with specific training goals. Now…

I am the first to hold my hands up and admit that when it comes to nutrition I am a bit clueless, well not clueless but confused. I often think I have cracked it in terms of finding a way of eating that suits my lifestyle and my running and then after a few weeks…

Today marks the start of National Obesity Awareness Week 2015 here in the UK, and as if in the last week we haven’t had enough of a fat shaming frenzy in the media I hope this doesn’t bring much of the same, I am not sure if I can stomach it to be honest. The…

Well come on…you didn’t expect me to actually go there did you? Really? Well, unlike some media channels I could mention, at The Fat Girls Guide to Running blog we prefer to focus on love not hate, so rather than run through the characteristics of “That” woman, much of which has already been debated, I instead…
