Hello! Spring is finally here and I for one am extremely delighted! Driving to work when it’s light and coming home again……..when it’s still light is amazing! I’ve been a bit quiet lately as I’ve had a terrible time getting over a bad cold/perhaps a touch of flu, haven’t we all lately? Anyhow, yesterday was… Continue reading Spring has sprung!
The Curse by Cobra Labs in Lemon Rush is one of my favourite pre-workouts, maybe even in the top 5! So here is a picture of the packaging: Pretty mean?! The powder is a nice fluffy white one and it mixes REALLY well with water, no lumps, no undissolved bits, the flavour is intense and… Continue reading The Curse – Preworkout
‘What’s a pre-workout?’ ‘You’re a gym go-er and you don’t know what a pre-workout is?’ I remember the conversation well. Then the research. Then the first ever pre-workout. Man alive this stuff is good! Nowadays I rarely ever go to the gym without having first taken a pre-workout, unless its a cardio session later in… Continue reading Pre-workouts.
Hello! Apologies for the delay between posts, I was away with work the last week and it was crazy busy! My work involves a lot of travel and I don’t usually mind it but last week was a slog. I was staying in an ‘apartment’, a very loose word for it. I’d say it was a… Continue reading I’ve lost that loving feeling!!
Hello! Today I thought I’d write about one of my favourite ways to get in a quick cardio session, Tabata workouts. Some days when I really don’t feel like treadmill intervals or just want to mix things up I like to throw in one of these workouts. I guess MetaFit or LesMills’ Grit classes are… Continue reading 1 Tabata, 2 Tabata, 3 Tabata, 4….
Hello and happy Valentines! Hope you’re all having a lovely day whatever you’re up to 🙂 Today I thought I’d write a bit about injury prevention, since I had one of the sorest sports massages ever this week. I’m no stranger to physiotherapy, having gone through various rounds back in my running days, but I… Continue reading Prevention > Cure
To have or not to have, the ever debatable question gracing many internet forums. For every one person who says you shouldn’t there will be another one who says you should. I say YES, cheat meals are absolutely necessary for me. I much prefer being incredibly strict with my food knowing I have one meal… Continue reading Cheat Meals
Hello, it’s February yay, January is finally over and the sun is starting to come out! In my last post I mentioned that I’m starting the next phase of my ‘diet’ (are we allowed to call it that? eating plan maybe?). So these are weeks 5 – 8 and I thought I’d give it a… Continue reading Weeks 5 – 8
Hello, today was a brilliant day, completely off plan but I’m ok with that. My mum came down to Edinburgh to spend the day with me so we went to Mimis Bakehouse and had ‘before afternoon tea’, bacon sandwiches, cheese and chive scones, granola and some sweet treats too, incredibly delicious! So, anyway today marks… Continue reading Sunday Funday
Workout music is pretty much essential to getting a good cardio session in for me. So I thought I’d share my top 20 songs to workout to. Apologies in advance for some of the cheesier ones! What do you like to listen to? Have any of you tried listening to audio books when you’re working out?… Continue reading Workout Music
