Season Kick-off!

Well. Five weeks to my half marathon and today I ran the first official race of 2014 in my calendar. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything close to my last year’s 38 minutes. I’ve literally been swamped with work and family obligations to the point of where I’ve hardly had time to sleep. I’ve … Continue reading

The Secret Life of Me

I was all set to do a post of my triumphant return run (40 minutes of nonstop running after a two week break) or about the gorgeous spring sunshine that makes me smile (complete with pictures) or the fact that getting a wisdom tooth pulled turned out to be not a big deal of any … Continue reading

Long Time a’Comin’

I went for a run yesterday. 3.5km in pitch black where the adrenaline rush came in equal parts from running in no-light urban areas and wondering when exactly I’d stumble and fall flat on my face courtesy of cracks in the pavement. It was horrid. Not because of the dark, but because the 3k already … Continue reading

The Off Month

Let’s get real here. I haven’t done any real running for a month. At a time where I should be doing 50+km a week with long runs of 30km… I’m barely doing 20km with my longest run over a month ago and that was just 24km. It’s five weeks til the marathon I’ve registered for. … Continue reading

Carb-Balance

So, there are a lot of silly things people do to their bodies. (Like running through injuries, but it’s not about that today.) What I’m doing right now, is going low carb. Not to worry, it’s not a permanent thing. What happened is that last weekend I found myself on unfamiliar ground. As someone who’s … Continue reading

The Weekly Recap

So, I quite suddenly started running again on Tuesday and I’ve been trying to get in a run on my regular days since. That’s Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. 🙂 I think I might have started too early seeing as how I’m sitting with an ice back on my knees right now. Argh! Can I … Continue reading

Prunes and Cinnamon for my Sister

🙂 Pretty much everyone who’s had a taste of the snack bars I make weekly has expressed a desire to make their own. I think it’s the versatility that attracts. (And the bonus of them being healthy.) But. You can make them whatever kind you want! So. I was sitting with my sister yesterday sipping … Continue reading

Week Ten Recap and Yet More Snacks

28 degrees in the shade. I miss spring. It was fun to be running today while there were girls in bikinis guzzling down water and getting their tan on near the grasslands. It seems like in the last four days, nature’s decided to do an interlude to summer with the day heat and the evening … Continue reading

The Race Report for the May Run 7k

I finally fell asleep yesterday just before two. And then I got woken by a hungry cat around six in the morning. I managed to fall asleep again and slept until nine, so I was pretty well rested. When I got out of bed, my first thought was… The weather! They’d promised something insane for … Continue reading
