Win a copy of my book ‘Sorted: The Active Woman’s Guide to Health’

I’m really enjoying my blog this year, I hope you are too. I was planning ahead with a post featuring my book Sorted: The Active Woman’s Guide to Health published by Bloomsbury to tie in with Mother’s Day. Then it occurred to me that maybe you would like to win a copy to give to the mother in your life. Or maybe you are a mother, mother to be, or not a mother at all and want a little present for yourself! 

My Top Blog Posts of 2017

I have big plans for my blog for 2018. I enjoy creating and writing posts and I want to use this amazing opportunity to help keep us all motivated to move. Whether it be an educational post, an interview with an inspiring person, a kit review or a personal anecdote, it’s wonderful to see the power of the written word. Comments and feedback, here on the blog or on social media, re-inforce to me that I should keep going – even when it’s hard to cram in the hours it takes to keep a blog running!

ZAAZEE sports bra review

This isn’t a sponsored post. Bloggers are generally very open and transparent about how they’ve come by the products they’re reviewing. (look out for #sponsored or the more subtle #sp) It takes some guts though, to be totally objective about a product if you’ve been gifted it. We’ve all been brought up to perform the routine, “Thanks very much Aunty Dot, I love this  jumper” whilst smiling and wondering when the next charity shop collection is. Sometimes I just want to tell you about a product that I’ve bought, simply because I like it and I think you might too. I did this with my running dress from NuuMuu and now its the turn of a real gem of a find; my ZAAZEE sports bra.

Off road with Trespass trail shoes- a product review

I’m busy, busy, busy at the moment and I don’t have time to go for a run AND take the dog for a walk so I’m combining the two and dog-running. I don’t really like to take my dog Honey too far on the road as I worry about her paws getting sore. She also pulls on the lead, unpredictably veers off into on-coming traffic and randomly stops for a sniff or a wee sending me head over heels on top of her. It’s far more enjoyable (and less stressful) for both if us if she’s off the lead, running and stopping as she pleases. This leaves me free to enjoy the views and be my own pacer!

Summer sandals and runners’ feet.

I’ve blogged previously about my feet not being my best feature and I’m well aware that my hobby is largely to blame for this. You don’t get blackened and missing toenails from being a GP. However, I do LOVE shoes. With the start of the warmer weather I delve into the depths of the under stairs cupboard to retrieve the summer footwear. This is an adrenalin sport in itself as many things disappear into here never to be seen again. Emerging with a summer shoe comes the realisation that what has been tucked away in woolly socks and trail shoes for the winter must now be exposed for all to see. So, what can we do about the common runners’ foot problems and how can we quickly revive our feet for summer? p.s I’m refraining from posting lots of gruesome photos.
