Well, I am back. On. Track. 

We ran during the week, and followed it up with a long run on Saturday, I had the Color Run yesterday and tonight we did the whole PiYo round, including putting Flow together for the first time. Boom!

I did the Color Run in Glasgow with my bestie, Pauline, her daughter (my god daughter) Olivia and her friend Holly. It was awesome! I’ll save the details for another post, but here’s the before and after shots: 

 So, here’s my thinking for his week….

 And for an extra boost, I have this reminder from the Color Run:

Sorry for not posting for a week- I’ve been busy, busy with visitors, a short break away and more visitors! I’m back to my routine- such that it is…. Saturday saw me do a 5 mile walk/run/shuffle and boy did I have DOMS on Sunday- my obliques were aching. Tonight, I was back at PiYo and it was tough. Tough after a week of eating whatever I wanted, little exercise and having a few beers and some champagne after yesterday’s Wimbledon final and Euro Championship Final.

Back on track now, though😉

Are you on holiday? Have you chucked the routine and eating well? This has helped me to focus today:


It’s a new week for us all!

I haven’t run this week. I’m not apologising for it, I’m not going to say something glib like ‘life got in the way’, I just didn’t run, and I’m ok with that.

I’ve been nursing scrapes and bruises since my fall the previous week, and I’ve worked hard at my fitness classes so I haven’t been sitting idle all week either😉

I do have races to prepare for though, so I’ll get back out there. As you might know, since I reframed my running a year ago I’ve been really enjoying it more: no pressure on myself, no aiming for times or PBs, just ‘running my run’ as Kyla would say, and enjoying every second of each race. Same goes for training. Yes, there are tough times and easier times, but it’s all about balance. And I’m getting better at that!


Have a great week!

Well, I don’t know about you, but today’s full moon on this longest day has wreaked mayhem for me! I was very grateful for PiYo tonight, where I stretched and sweated my troubles away;)

 How was your weekend? Mine was amazing. We had visitors: my BFF Pauline,her hubby Gavin, my goddaughter Olivia and the suddenly-very-tall Christopher. We had a great day out to Gigha where we walked and chatted and relaxed, and in the evening, Pauline and I sat in the hot tub for aaaaages! We then rounded off their trip with a delicious lunch at The George in Inveraray. Yum. 

If you need a motivational push to get you off the couch or away from the desk, I hope this helps:

Figuratively speaking, of course.
