Saturday 18th January A few weeks ago I was’t going to do this event. My knee was pretty painful just walking up a few steps, let alone trying to run a hilly half marathon course. But when your physio (and race winner) reckons you’ll be able to manage it, I couldn’t say no. I was… Continue reading Taranaki Off-Road Half Marathon
After the whole peanut butter drama of Sunday, I still wasn't feeling great on Monday, but managed to at least show up for my training, even if I didn't quite have it in me to complete the swim set.

I feel that so much has happened this week, but also so much hasn’t. There are lots… Continue reading Week 9: Making Connections
This week I am getting back to training. After having a week off to recover and try and get my eating in order, yet again, I am feeling refreshed and ready to go.
