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
Recently I decided to employ the services of Leanne Forker, an Edinburgh based PT to kick my bum in to shape, and kick it she certainly did! She took one of the Grit Cardio classes at the gym local to me, her crazy enthusiasm and her being in prep for a bodybuilding competition motivated me… Continue reading Hiring a PT!

I guess MetaFit or LesMills’ Grit classes are… Continue reading 1 Tabata, 2 Tabata, 3 Tabata, 4….

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
Thought I’d start posting some GOOTD’s (Gym Outfit of the Day) since I love having a look through other peoples blogs and seeing what they wear to the gym.
