We’ve all been there, on a run that just plain old sucks. Whether it’s mental or physical, it can be a struggle-train run. You could throw in the towel and walk home, but sometimes it’s […]

It’s been a wee while since I had a guest blogger on here – and I really am sorry for that as I blooming love them! I absolutely love them because; a) it’s great to be a little nosy and find out about how runners got started running; b) I like finding out about races that I’ve never heard of before; and c) (this is possibly my most favourite) hearing the incredible hints, tips and advice.
Today on ‘Why do you run?’ we have the pleasure of having Jamie. I’ve followed Jamie on Instagram now for a couple of years; no matter the weather, the workout or the time of day, she always has this huge smile on her face. I highly recommend you checking her out on IG and her blog (links are below).
Whether you’ve just run a race and are looking for your next challenge, or haven’t raced in a while but would like to have a goal to work towards, ask yourself these 3 questions.
Having a running coach isn’t just for elite, Olympic level athletes. Sure they all have coaches, but anyone can have a running coach; whether you are trying to hit a personal best, getting back into running after an injury or long break, you are completely new to running, or you have hit a plateau in your times and need help pushing through.
Seawheeze 2019 is just around the corner, how did that come round so fast! It doesn’t even feel like a year ago that I raced….and then got terribly injured! I was reminiscing about the race […]
Nobody wants to be injured, but unfortunately if you workout regularly there is a chance you will be out injured at some point (even if that injury was a sprained ankle from tripping over a shoe at your front door!). I’ve had my fair share of injuries over the past few years, one in particular that had me off running for 2 months – and let me tell you, it was the l-o-n-g-e-s-t 2 months!
Here are my 5 strategies for coming back from an injury.
So here it is, the first ‘Why do you run’ guest blog of 2019. For a couple of months now I wasn’t sure if I would continue with this guest series in 2019 – but it ultimately turned into pure nosiness in that I wanted to find out more about some incredible runners that I follow on Instagram.
This month’s guest blog is Jill, and her Instagram handle is @jillamama. I absolutely love her Instagram account; not only is it documenting her running journey, but it is filled with interesting Canadian facts. Go check her out and say hello.
