7 Week Half Marathon Training | Beginners Running Blog | Week 5

I'm afraid to report that this week has been just as bad as the last. Am I even writing a running blog right now or more a 'what I didn't do this week' blog?? I'm still suffering from illness and also I feel a little exhausted too. I'm sure I said this last week but… Continue reading 7 Week Half Marathon Training | Beginners Running Blog | Week 5

7 Week Half Marathon Training | Beginners Running Blog | Week 4

After a fun-filled weekend in London last weekend to watch Britney Spears on her Piece of Me tour, this week is a stark contrast. I can't even take it through day by day on what I got up to running-wise because I've been sick all week. I always say that I'd love to live in… Continue reading 7 Week Half Marathon Training | Beginners Running Blog | Week 4

Welcome to my 7 week half marathon training journey! You may be saying '7 weeks, that's a little unusual, Michelle' and you'd be right... however, that's the amount of weeks I've got left after neglecting my training!

Need For Speed | Week 4 | 10k Training | Diary of an Injured Runner | Race Day!

Hey everyone! If you've been reading my need for speed journey, you'll have noticed that I didn't actually post this back in May (which is when the race was) because it's been in my draft posts this whole time!

Need For Speed | Week 1 | 10k Training | Diary of an Injured Runner

It dawned on me the other day that it's only 4 weeks until the Bristol 10k. While there isn't anything particularly spectacular about this, as I'm running multiple 10ks this year, it's a massive deal for me because this is where I got my race PB last year. I've never come close to hitting or… Continue reading Need For Speed | Week 1 | 10k Training | Diary of an Injured Runner
