  • Respect


    ‘Run’ is a broad term. My times will tell a seasoned runner that, a lot of the time, this is a pseudo jog, or a very fast-paced walk. They know what their splits are, where weaknesses lie. I’m here, right now, trying to breathe from my diaphragm and not pass out. This is about betterment […]

  • Justified and Ancient

    Yesterday, with minimal fanfare, The KLF released their most famous songs onto streaming services and YouTube. No longer will I have to keep Apple Music well away from my MP3’s and, finally there are versions of classics on an OFFICIAL KLF YouTube Channel… Of course, there’s a shedtonne of fan-based stuff all over everywhere for […]

  • Change


    Day Three of having a piece of exercise equipment that can support my weight. I could have gone and found a tree in the woods over there [/points] and really would have. The benefits of lifting my own body weight have already been shown with press-up practice. Now, however, I can do this after a […]

  • Round and Round

    Round and Round

    Regulars will have heard me talking a lot about Zwift in the last month, since training at the Gym became impossible and I got a bit nervous about going out on my own. My husband is an avid cyclist: he completed the inaugural Ride London (and every one since, though we are predicting this years […]

    Run for Home

    I’ll be ditching my Fitbit over Christmas, because no Google, not happening. Instead, I’ll be picking up a Garmin watch. I’ve been doing some research on what the new system brings me, and it’s already getting me quite excited. Last night’s Blaze was also a triumph, despite the fact my mouth’s still fucking painful. When […]

    50 Words for Snow

    This weekend was always planned to be off the exercise grid. I’ve worked stupidly hard across the last couple of months, and really need to reorganise my exercise plans. Therefore, this afternoon, there’s a calendar that’s been completed. High time I went back to proper planning… #exercise pic.twitter.com/fubMjQJ7oe — ๐Ÿ—ฟ Sarah Reeson ๐ŸŒฒ Festive Epithet […]

  • Happy


    When I began my exercise journey, there were blog posts about it. In fact, if you go search my archive, you’ll find them. Things were considerably simpler back then, which seems quite bizarre right now to say, considering how much fear was felt.ย A great deal has changed in that intervening couple of years, not just […]

    Running on Ice

    Okay then, time to be honest. I dunno whether it is just because I am tired, or not fuelling properly, or whether it's just grey and depressing December but FUCK ME that exercise session was beyond hard. — ๐ŸŒŠ Sarah ๐Ÿ“ Shonky [Festive] Hankering ๐ŸŒŠ (@AlternativeChat) December 5, 2018 We are reaching a crossroads in […]

    I don't agree with this article. That should make for an interesting personal blog later today.https://t.co/20OHEyMvcM — ๐ŸŒŠ Sarah ๐Ÿ“ Shonky Hankering ๐ŸŒŠ (@AlternativeChat) November 30, 2018 This article appeared at an apposite moment this morning, after a night of Blaze which was, for the first time, questioned as being worthwhile.
