Yes, I’ve been stretching myself for a whole week. Eight days, including today, of stretching morning, noon, and night…or more realistically; getting in a decent stretching session at a convenient point in the afternoon, and then occasionally squeezing in an extra few before bed. I’ve been sticking mostly to the stretches in this guide by Blogilates, but… Continue reading The Quest for Splits – 1 week in
OK, so I gave a hint in the last post that this month’s quest was being motivated by a couple of pole competitions I have coming up at the end of the month. I love pole dancing, and I am half decent at the ‘pole’ bit of it it, I’m reasonably strong and happy to… Continue reading March – The Quest for Splits

I have a scrap book (which might be too small), some stickers, and a spreadsheet listing what I want on most of the pages. Basically, not even the… Continue reading Quest for Japan conclusion

I had initially hoped that maybe I’d have my scrapbook done by the end of the month, but that will require getting photos printed, and buying things like washi tape and markers and possibly a bigger scrapbook than… Continue reading Quest for Japan part 1
I can’t believe it. I did it. 153km/95miles run over 31 days, and £185 raised for Mind. I’m going to do the really obvious thing and write a buzzfeed style lessons learned post…I’m sorry, but at least I didn’t give it a click-baitey title… 10 Things I Learned From Running Every Day in January… Continue reading The RED Quest endeth here!
This isn’t fun any more. I’m tired and injured but I can’t stop here, not when I’m so close. I should focus on the good bits really, and there are good bits. On Monday I ran 12.7km, by far the longest I have ever run. I didn’t start out with the intention of a long… Continue reading The RED Quest – Day 26
