Good evening to you, on this fine holiday weekend. It isn’t a holiday for me- I’ve been working today- but I’ve enjoyed the weather from the office window;)

This weekend, I’ve done some gardening, digging up and clearing weeds. I’ve lots more to do, but it’s under way! This weekend Tarbert has hosted the Scottish Series sailing competitions, and the harbour has been a buzz of activity. It’s always good fun.

I’ve also drafted up our Disneyland Paris half marathon training plan and it begins in earnest tomorrow. You know I’ve tried lots of plans- Nike, Hal Higdon amongst others. This time I’ve designed my own. I want to keep my runs to three per week and I’ve built in some cross training, especially PiYo, active recovery and two day’s rest per week. I’m also starting with short runs to build momentum and my confidence. Since I’ve been injured, I want to build up slowly and steadily by not taking on too much too soon. Tomorrow’s two miler should be steady, easily achievable and hot hot hot!

Here’s my motivation to kick off the week:

 For me, it’s all about that self belief. 

Have a good week!

Hi, guys! How was your weekend? If you saw my post yesterday, you’ll know that my weekend was one of two distinct halves: a stormy Saturday and a glorious Sunday. We had a rare quiet weekend at home with no plans, and it was bliss.

I rounded up week three of my training plan nicely with a gorgeous walk, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I’m pleased to say that my training is firmly back on track, with three solid and consistent weeks of sticking to the plan 😀 Happy, happy!

Here’s how last week went, with the scheduled sessions on the left compared to my actual training on the right: 

 This week is the midway point of my ‘get back to it’ plan, and the mileage ramps up a little this week. We’ll see how it goes 😉

To get me started, here’s something I”ll be focussing on this week:


Have a brilliant week, lovelies!
