Strava. Did you say stalker?

Strava. Did you say stalker?

Strava came up in conversation today. Over a very well-deserved breakfast. (Which, incidentally, was delicious). Following my epiphany about training, the one about perfection, I embraced the inner turtle, which meant I trained today! It’s like a miracle. So, there we were, sitting around in a caff in Nundah, having cycled, swum, cycled, run. In a […]

Thursday Thoughts: you really want to know?

Hello Thursday. Is it just me, or has this week been really long already? And I’ve only been back at work since Tuesday! I am sooooo tired, and I don’t know if it’s just me, or whether it’s because peeps have been feral. I can’t decide if work has been a little trying, or I am simply […]

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 […]

True Crime

True Crime

Hey. How’s your week going? Mine has been a little odd. Surprise…. You’d think, really, that my interactions with random acts of weirdness would have topped out on Sunday, when I witnessed the drunken port-a-loo door banger at City2South. But no! I’ve got closer to true crime than that and have had firsthand experience of […]

City2South or #justcallmedavid

A funny thing happened on Sunday. Not necessarily funny haha, so if you’re looking for laughs, why are you even on my blog? No, I’m talking the other funny – odd, strange, in keeping with my personality… Sunday was deemed a rest day in the vague scheme in my head that is my “training plan”. And […]

The law of unintended consequences

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 […]

Mad Dogs and Englishwomen

This post may be being brought to you from the after life. I know, exciting! And it’s not even Friday the 13th or Halloween. In case you’re wondering, it feels a lot like the before life, but with more stillness. I’ve written a farewell email to my husband (who hasn’t responded, by the way, so […]

Ultimate Coffee Date: The Mother’s Day Edition

Ultimate Coffee Date: The Mother’s Day Edition

It’s been an interesting week – I’ve been investigating new blogs to follow with more of a fitness theme (there’s nothing like reading about other people’s efforts to make you feel accountable for putting in some of your own), and KABOOM not only did I find a fabulous runners linky over in the US of A, […]

Making time for yourself

Making time for yourself

How do you make time for yourself? I was thinking, in the wee-small hours when I should have been asleep, about something I read on Facebook. It was the frustration someone was experiencing being held back from starting a new exercise programme. Damn life was getting in the way. Like it does. It’s such a […]

Thermofix for a Running Injury

Thermofix for a Running Injury

Because a thermomix can come to the rescue… I have a running injury. And it is ruining my life. Or more precisely – it’s ruining my family’s lives. I’m not the funnest mum in the world right now.  Plus, without running, I don’t seem to have anything to say. I saw the physio last week, […]
