GUEST BLOG #16 – WHY DO YOU RUN?

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). 

Enjoy!

AHH Lululemon SEAWHEEZE, HOW I LOVE YOU SO…

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 the other night while I was on a client consultation call, and it inspired me to write up a blog with all my tips and highlights from the expo and race. Now it’s likely that the race format will be slightly different from my 2018 experience, but it might give you a taste of what’s to come!

5 STRATEGIES FOR COMING BACK FROM AN INJURY

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.

8 TIPS ON KEEPING SAFE WHILE OUT RUNNING ALONE

Hello!

I’ve been doing a few early morning solo runs recently. There is something magical about being one of the first people out in the morning. Certainly where I live, the streets are mostly quiet, except a few other runners, dog walkers, and those coming home from work/starting work early.  As well as feeling AWESOME that you have completed your run before work, you are beating the heat, and there is something special knowing you are one of the few seeing that spectacular sunrise.
