For the last week, I’ve been doing Hal Elrod’s Miracle Morning every morning straight after getting up. My Miracle Morning routine is described here, although it has differed slightly from day to day - instead of yoga and pilates, I went for a walk one morning and went for a run another morning. I can’t … Continue reading Miracle Morning – One Week In
Today was parkrun number eight for me, my seventh at Bramley (which is my local parkrun). I headed out after doing my miracle morning and having a banana for a bit of fuel. It was a bit windy this morning and that made the air quite chilly, so I decided to keep my hoody on … Continue reading parkrun #8
Today I did my first miracle morning session, and so far I only have good things to say about it. My miracle morning looked like this: silence - I did some deep breathing whilst waiting for the kettle to boil (the first thing I do after getting up and going to the loo is get … Continue reading First Thoughts on my Miracle Morning
Somehow, my blog seems to have turned into a bit of a running blog over the last few posts. There’s no denying that it’s become an important part of my life recently, but my blog is supposed to be about my journey, figuring out who I am (and want to be), what I want from … Continue reading Miracle Mornings?
As I said at the end of my last post, at my most recent parkrun I got my fastest time yet - 26:43 for 5km. I know loads of people can run 5k much faster (and do at my local parkrun each week) but this is such an achievement for me, it made me so … Continue reading My current Bramley parkrun PB
Having reached my first goal of being able to run for 30 minutes non-stop, I needed some new motivation to make sure I continued running. I do really enjoy it, but still, when it’s dark, cold and wet going outside is not appealing, and especially not in running gear. The first thing I did was … Continue reading parkrun
I'm reluctant to call myself a runner, but I do run - usually several times a week - so I suppose that’s what I am. I don’t really feel like a ‘proper’ runner though. It might stem from the fact that I only ever really run for about 30 minutes. I feel like I’m a … Continue reading Me and running
Do we stop often enough to ask ourselves this incredibly important question? We often think about what we want to do - today, at the weekend, with our lives - but rarely do we consider how we actually want to feel. Danielle LaPorte is on a mission to change that. Her extraordinary book, The Desire Map, … Continue reading How do I want to feel?
Yesterday I left my job of six and a half years. Leaving so soon wasn’t really part of my plan. I had intended to (hopefully) secure a place at university, then work until the summer, having a short break before starting uni. I planned to use my notice period to look for a new job … Continue reading The end of an era
As I said in a previous post, there are a lot of really great things about where I currently work, and a lot of less good things about it. The balance is pretty fine, and it’s making deciding what to do very difficult. It really is a bit of a rollercoaster, and there have been … Continue reading Is ‘okay’ enough?
