Morning, Noon or Night?

Over the last week, I’ve been off work, which has meant I’ve been able to lay in bed a little longer than I normally would. While I’m not knocking the extra sleep time, I’ve discovered something amiss. I run better first thing in the morning, than in the afternoon. Scholarly articles claim that running in…

My Little Ass

Shaking Off Cobwebs

Having reached the 1km mark in my new found love of jogging, I’m now approaching the 1m mark. Achieving that goal will mean something special to me. I’ve never been a runner. I’ve previously written on here, that the last time I ran, was 35 years ago, and that was while taking part in physical…

Aches And Pains

It’s been a difficult week for me, with aches and pains hitting parts that I didn’t know existed, but I have now reached the 1km mark which feels like a massive reward ☺ I’m all too aware of jogging being a high impact exercise and the consequences that can ensue when not listening to warning…
