I want to ride my (stationary) bicycle

I’m taking a few days off for Christmas, don’t judge me…  I’m a little behind on my blogging – apologies. I hadn’t exercised in a while, but luckily for me my parents (where I’m staying at the moment) bought an exercise bike. So far this bike has impressed me for the price. It’s pretty handy […]

Going north (and uphill)

The fun never stops… I’m back in the north! This means I can finally do some hill training – as you may remember it was hills that derailed me during my marathon. Also I need to practice hills so I’m ready for the training camp in the peak district in about two weeks. On Saturday […]

Cambridge v Oxford varsity

Possibly more running/exercise tomorrow…. It was the varsity cross-country race on Saturday (Cambridge v Oxford). Before the races there was a supporters’ race, where we could run the shorter ladies (4 miles rather than 7.5 miles) course, which I really couldn’t resist. I reached the start line in my normal running shoes, realising that this […]

EZ, getting harder

More running tomorrow… I ran with the EZ group today; however I found myself getting ahead of them as we were running along the river, so I looped back to let them catch up. The group then split into various smaller groups and I realised that I was “stuck” with the fastest EZ group, which […]
