Weekly Round Up

Weekly Round Up – 25th July 2016

So I am finally on SUMMER HOLIDAYS and I’m hoping this means some rest, lots of running and a few more blog posts!! So what have I been up to this week?


Monday – 400’s with my club. It was super hot and my legs were still a little heavy from the Parkrun PB on the Saturday! According to Strava, I clocked my faster 400 in this session! YAY I’m finally getting faster!

Tuesday – Rest day

Wednesday – Body Combat. My second body combat session, and to be honest, last week when I attempted it, I was so hungover I can’t say I really enjoyed it! This week definitely felt better, as I had some idea of what I was doing, and I wasn’t hungover. The intensity is tough, and I really feel like it is going to complement my running, as it works my back which I think is neglected when just running. Also, the high kicks work my glutes and hip flexors – both are definitely weak areas for me.

Thursday – Continuous hills with Club – It was another hot evening and this session was tough. 10 minutes continuous hills, then 10 minutes hill sprints and then some work on downhill!

Friday – Half a mile with my little lady. She is really keen to run at the moment, so we just do a loop around where I live. She choses the pace and when we walk, and generally we have a fun! After the run, she decided to copy me doing some squats and sit ups !:-)

Saturday – 11.1 miles! After London, I was really keen to keep up my long runs, but this hasn’t really happened too well! Today, I decided to accompany my friend Christine on her run. She had completed 18 miles the previous night and had 10 miles to run on Saturday (she is crazy and in training for an Ultra!!) She had planned a route, I just had to turn up! I knew I was going to find it tough over 7ish miles, but hoped a slowish pace would allow me to keep going. Let’s just say it was tough from the offset. It was hot, and lots of the route was off-road and I am not good at off-road! We ran and walked, even stopped for an ice-cream and once it had finished I did really enjoy it! Off-road is tough, and as much as I dislike it, I know I should do more, as it is good for me.

Sunday – Rest day.

So a full week, and some tough sessions to work on from! I go on holiday this week, so be sure to follow my social media accounts, as if the internet limited I will mainly post updates on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter

Also, my race report from the London 10K was published over on Miss Wheezy’s website if anyone fancies a read. Hope everyone has had a good week. Let m know what you have been up too.


An average runner that has found a passion for running and raising money/awareness for MNDA. I have completed London, New York, and Chicago marathons. I am tempted to go for the Six-Star finishers medal, running all the World Marathon Majors, but that's a dream in progress.
