I haven’t been in the most chipper of moods lately. To be honest, I’ve been feeling quite cynical and disillusioned. But the cloud is lifting – it always does – and there have been been a few rays of sunshine this week. The biggest was a little bit of CSI work I got involved with,… Read More The Hanging Gardens of Walkerville
On a very good day, I spend about 90 minutes in traffic on my commute to and from work. That’s an hour and a half of my waking hours staring at cars in front of me and dodging taxis. Last year, I made a conscious decision to be more discerning about what to do with my… Read More Inspiration Everywhere!
If you’re hoping for a super motivating post about achieving the impossible… I suggest you turn back now! This isn’t that sort of post! This story is about changing my mind and deciding not to go for a particular goal. A couple of weeks ago I had this crazy notion to sign up for a… Read More That time I signed up for a full marathon
It’s Sunday, the 1st of May. I’ve spent the last few days contemplating how I would restart my diet food plan for life today. Debating whether it was viable to start today, considering it’s a Sunday and a long weekend and all. It would have been so much better if this first day of a new… Read More The Anti-Diet Project
I was driving to work one morning this this week, fighting my way through rain, traffic, potholes, broken traffic lights and taxi drivers while listening to the ever more depressing Zupta-gate news and I could literally feel my mood getting blacker and blacker. I really like being relatively well informed and knowing what’s going on… Read More The Art of Asking – an audio-book review of sorts
I thought I’d don the Mom-Blog hat for once instead of the Running-Blog sneakers and post about the big parenting thing happening for us right now… Ewan is less than a year away from high school and I can hardly believe we are at this point in our lives! When we were choosing primary schools all… Read More Choosing a highschool…or letting a highschool choose us!
My first work week of 2016 is done. Another festive season done and it’s time to pack away the tree and it’s tinsel. Smokey the cat will miss the baubles to play with! So I guess it’s time to think about what I want from 2016, right? As I said here, I am not big on serious resolutions, but… Read More Hello 2016!
Is it normal to just hit a wall? Where you go from feeling to like you’re flying to feeling like you have legs of lead and every run is more a chore than a pleasure? Everything was going brilliantly well, until a week or three back where I suddenly started feeling miserable. A weekday run… Read More Just when I thought it was all going so well!
Yesterday morning I got back from a long run with a couple of friends from our club, tossed my stuff on the dining room table, and went straight into the kitchen for food and coffee and then upstairs to soak my tired legs and feet in a hot bath. Two things to note here: Our big square 8… Read More Our (tog) bag of tricks
It has been just over a month since THE BIG RACE and a couple of weeks of back-to- normal. Normal being work, eat, sleep, run, rinse repeat. And it’s been hectic, which would account for my lack of recent blog posts. This particular post has been in draft form for days now! I mentioned in my… Read More A rambling update…
