Can I give up running for Lent?
I'll Never Forget You.
Where did we leave off? My last post-run running-post was Wednesday? Seems ages ago. Sorry for the neglect, been a little busy, you know? Just to fill you in, I was planning a Totally OSSUM Training Week. I had taken the week off from work and I was going to flat-hunt, view properties and run and train and be healthy and happy. Mission: FAILED. I didn’t go to Bootcamp this week...
Charlie Dark with some OSSUM tips:
rundemcrew2: Successful running is about confidence, the more confident you feel the further and faster you can go knowing that whatever the road throws up at you you will be ready. Here are my top five tips for this week to help you nail that goal. Read More Looking forward to putting these to practice this Sunday. RUN RUN RUN! ^__^
Hey Ladies: Gyakusou Womens Spring Summer 2012
rundemcrew2: I AM SO FRIGGIN EXCITED FOR THIS! YOU HAVE NO IDEA. It’s about time this collab developed a line for women. I’m just happy I now actually ‘run’ to be able to fully enjoy the brilliant design and technicality of each garment when I get some. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU NIKE x GYAKUSOU! <3
And then there were two...
For years now, I’ve joked about my singular ab. I’m a slim jim, partly thanks to an Azn frame (no hips, sob sob sob), but by no means toned. Where body fat collates and sits, there it sits on me. I’m a woman who likes to eat cake and drink copious amounts of tea, of course my stomach isn’t flat! But who gives a crap when you can craftily disguise your permanent “food...
tired of situps? here are a few ideas...
I ran again this evening (sound the trumpets, YAY!). I was supposed to run last night and never got round to it (oh, anticlimax). Familiar story, huh? I’ve had distraction after distraction this year so far. I need a holiday. In fact, I took a holiday from work this week to focus on house-hunting (I need to move in March), but I can’t find a house. I’m spending around 8 hours a...
MY KNEE HURTS! Trying to find a comfortable position to sit in while I work. No luck. I don’t want to put ice on it because ice is COLD and I don’t like cold things. Not even ice cream, before you ask. Am I allowed to put something warm on it? I feel like that will make it feel better, but is that going to make it worse?
Post-run knee assessment.
Today I did a 3.something mile run. I wasn’t sure how long I was going to last so I started off with no particular route in mind. About a mile into it I had already slowed down to walk but I had decided I was going to run a big loop and end up at the gym where my brother was training. It was a pretty boring run actually, and other than a dry heave early on, I have nothing to report. One...
In which we talk about feet...
Ok, so I’ve been a little busy. Kinda says a lot when you’re in your twenties and you find yourself at your mum’s house on a Saturday night blitzing through your to-do list. Tres glam, I know. Anyway, I haven’t run at all this week (bar today for a minute on a treadmill in the Women’s Running department at Niketown London). I did go to Bootcamp on Wednesday though. I...
I need to run.
Last week feels about a month ago...
So much is happening in a short space of time and things are moving so fast. This isn’t necessarily a good or bad thing, although The Oracle (Drake, HA!) does say that “working with the negatives can make for better pictures” (valuable lesson there, kids). I want to say I haven’t had time to run and train, but that’s not the only reason. Recently motivation to do this...
I would just like to enquire...
On a scale of 1 to stupid, how much of a good idea is it to go out for a run in this snow? (Not that I’m looking for an excuse).
