Downward dog and other resolutions

The Long Jog to Comrades No Comment
Downward dog and other resolutions

I’m not a big believer in resolutions. Being of the “I’m totally focusing on this one thing. OOOHHH SHINY. I’m totally only focusing on the shiny” school of commitment, the role resolutions play in my life is the part of “something to be ignored”. However, I was in the pool trying to dodge the rudder […]

The chase to beat chafe

The chase to beat chafe

It’s summer, and therefore, it’s time for my obligatory post bemoaning the effects of chafe. Because I have been suffering. Oh yes indeedy. I found this picture on Google (see below) showing the zones – not erogenous zones – no need to look away. And realised, at least in my experience, it’s dismally inadequate in […]

On Chafe: “Ode to Sudacrem”

On Chafe: “Ode to Sudacrem”

I was inspired after my run today by the memory of John Keats’ Ode to Autumn, a poem that we did to death at school. Those in Mrs Oldfield’s English class, I give you: Ode to Sudacrem – a poem about chafe. Pure classic literature, right there.   SEASON of heat and cloying humidity, Close bosom-friend of […]

The law of unintended consequences

I think I may have created an imbalance in the order of the universe: I’m really sorry, and I’d like to apologise. The thing is, I can’t find Oscar and I fear that he’s run off in the belief that he’s a superhero. And it’s all my fault. The consequence of involving myself in his […]

Heroes

Homelife Crisis 2 Comments
Heroes

2016 is being a bit of a bitch and I think someone needs to sort it out! First it snatched Bowie and Rickman, now Prince. Along the way, it’s taken Terry Wogan (who actually WAS Eurovision, the singing was just a side show) and Ronnie Corbett, even Paul Daniels: pillars of the British televiewing establishment: staples of […]

Mein Kampf: The Struggle is Real

Mein Kampf: The Struggle is Real

No, not that Mein Kampf. This is a polemic about yoga & pools not politics! Look away now if you were wanting a cheery hit of Hitler. However, if you want a discussion on water torture and eye gouging, you’ve come to the right place.  Because that is what I endured yesterday. But before we […]

Maidenwell Marathon

The Long Jog to Comrades 4 Comments
Maidenwell Marathon

Maidenwell marathon formed part of my cunning masterplan. The Comrades 2016 masterplan. Thwarted at Melbourne in my quest to qualify, (sidelined to the 10km with a hip injury), I needed this avenue to get back on track. And it was such a perfect solution. The race was in Queensland, better still, within driving distance. And camping was […]
