What makes a race your favourite? The crowd support? Your perfect weather conditions? Having a good mindset the whole way through? Getting a PB? Each race has its own story which almost makes them all memorable - for different reasons. Sometimes it can be hard to make a choice and if i tried to do … Continue reading Favourite run vs favourite medal
Over the last 3 years I've discovered a lot about myself, what a runner looks like and what a runner actually is. In a nut shell, a runner is someone who runs. Fast or slow, smooth, elegant or like a baby giraffe. Large or small, it doesn't matter. So long as they are moving forward … Continue reading What does a runner look like..?
There's the point in each race, at the starting corrals where you think "what did I sign up for" There's the point in each race just after the gun goes off where you think "what am I doing" There's the point in each race near the half way mark where you think "I can do … Continue reading Launceston 10 – 3/6/18
Hmm, you say what..? I keep seeing the hashtag attached to perky pictures of couple at races or the gym. I hear within other conversations that said couple does everything together (or most things fitness orientated). I roll my eyes at these things. I have this weird feeling about the term #couplesgoals. Look, I am … Continue reading Couples goals
A quick question. It is asked all the time for various validation purposes. If you walk during a running race does the distance still count? If you want to complete a certain distance then you have to run the whole thing? I'm not doing a marathon until I can run the whole distance. Yes, No … Continue reading Do you walk when you run..?
It was all going well until it wasn't. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it all falls in a heap. And sometimes it gets all muddled up. Which is what happened for my last race. I was all over the training, and then I was over the training. Life and general busyness got in the way and … Continue reading City 2 Casino 11k (7k)
I'm not sure exactly what it was. I'm not sure whether it's all in my mind. I'm not sure if I was just having a bad week or two. What I am sure about though is that the small intake of carbs between Thursday and Sunday certainly contributed to my increased performance over the weekend. … Continue reading Carbs are back
Its been 8 weeks and I've discovered I need to change where I'm going with lchf. It might seem a bit 'oh I love this, its fantastic' one minute and the next 'ugh, feel like shit, it's not working', I see that. I am in both of those camps right now. I figure eight weeks … Continue reading 8 weeks – time to re-assess
Week four and I'm feeling fantastic. Never mind a bad week of emotional eating and no exercise resulting with a minor weight gain. The kind of fluctuation that is perfectly normal. It's a slow program to get going with for me, all the new food combinations to eat, menus to work out and ingredients to … Continue reading LCHF progress
It’s a semi rhetorical question. Every body is different and everyone has their own requirement and routines that determine what they eat. Seriously though, (for those not already on a lchf type w.o.e.) would you ever consider pulling up the roots on all those delicious carbohydrates. I have a love affair with potatoes, rice, pasta … Continue reading Could You not eat carbs..?
