  • Zzzz 13 weeks of training

    I felt tired this week. 13 weeks into my training plan now and 17 to go it seems like a long way to the end. It was a very busy week with work, family and life, so sleep took a back seat

  • Sadie turns 2 !!

    2 years old! My god that has gone quickly... I am so proud to say that my eldest daughter is turning into the most amazing little girl. Training took a step back this week as we celebrated another milestone in Sadie's life.

    My legs are sore today. Although this was not such a big week in terms of volume
