My Strongwoman Workout #1
My fitness goals are constantly changing. Not because I’m extremely indecisive but once I achieve a goal or discover a different fitness need I tend to revaluate where I want to be in terms of my training. This workout reflects my goal of building up my strength.
I love the idea of being strong. Nothing gives me more of a buzz than being able to deadlift more than my own bodyweight or have the stamina to do 3 rounds of Sled Drags without completely keeling over!
Below is a recent Strongwoman workout; I love this and was pleased with how much I pushed myself. I’ve recently pulled one of my hip flexors so running has been off the cards so doing this workout gave me the post-workout buzz I needed.

All the views expressed are my own. I am an experienced runner and train regularly at the Gym. All my fitness programmes and training have been designed to suit my own fitness capabilities and goals but happy to share if you are looking for inspiration and motivation.

Then it started to happen; the prospect of putting my trainers on and getting out for a run rather uninspiring. I suppose it was a case of now needing something else to motivate me to maintain my fitness.
Old habits can easily start creeping back
As I could have predicted my motivation to keep fit started to wane. 3 runs a week became two then sometimes one or none a week. I was in danger of undoing all the hard work I’d done and forgetting the goals I’d been so proud of achieving. Sitting on that sofa watching Coronation Street instead of getting out there was starting to become more appealing and the norm. An old habit was starting to re-immerge.
So what next?
Maybe it was time to hit the gym? Read more
Here we go! Time to start blogging
Ok so this is my first blog ever
Scary stuff but here goes! I’ve been told by a fellow blogger friend that you look back at your first blog and cringe. I suppose it’s like that ‘bang on trend’ haircut/style/colour you had back in the day and now your toes literally curl when you look back at photos of you with said haircut/style/colour (mine was a perm). So I need to post something in order to get said opportunity to cringe at it.
I’ve always wanted to blog but have felt that I can only do this when I feel that I something worth saying and about something I feel deeply passionate about. Think it’s always been a question of what to blog about. Then it came to me recently that perhaps I should write about my passion for Read more
