27th August saw the first ever Simply Health Aberdeen Half Marathon and I completed it! On the morning of the race I was incredibly nervous, my training hadn’t exactly gone to plan; there were runs that ended in me having to phone for a lift home as I was just too tired to carry on.… Continue reading Aberdeen Half Marathon
Hello there! Today I thought I’d document down my current weight training split before I start half marathon training. Partly for my own benefit so I can get back to it after the run and partly for anyone who might might be interested. Obviously, a couple of caveats…..this is my plan, I’ve been training for… Continue reading Current Training Split – Before the Half
I’m relatively new to volume training but thought I’d look into it as I was getting pretty bored with my weight lifting routines, now I try to incorporate it for upper and lower body at least once per fortnight. It’s great if want a change or if you’re in a busy gym and can’t get… Continue reading Volume Training
Shopping for sports bras can be pretty difficult; working out whether or not a bra will provide enough support, be comfortable, look ok under sport clothes and be able to withstand lots of washing can be a mine field. I’ve tried lots and lots of different types of sports bras and always find myself coming… Continue reading M&S Sports Bras

Hello there! Today we’re talking noodles, nope not the pasta kind, the butternut kind. I love butternut squash, so versatile for using in curries, bulking out pasta sauces or having as wedges instead of chips, i do not however like prepping it, i’m waaaay too lazy for that! Lots of places do butternut cubes to… Continue reading Ooodles of noodles or boodles
Everyone has one these days and I couldn’t possibly be left out! I wanted a fitness tracker that really was for fitness and not just a steps taken type of device, I don’t actually walk that many steps and it had to have some kind of heart rate monitor, so I decided on the Polar… Continue reading Fitness Tracker – Polar A360
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 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
