  • Run for Home

    Run for Home

    I appear to be doing blogs in pairs right now, mostly because they’re being fitted in between other tasks. That meant recording a podcast today, which on reflection should have been done on Monday. It’ll get programmed that way for next week. Today was also when I did my first 10 km for quite some time, […]

  • You Wear It Well

    You Wear It Well

    This week has changed the game plan. A lot of that has to do with knowing I’m not happy with other people’s handling of mass participative events as someone with historic anxiety issues. Forget for a moment about all the other potential mental complications involved in next week’s Ride London, it’s all about knowing I’m […]

  • Pardon Me

    Pardon Me

    I am officially now one those angry women with coloured hair who will destroy the sanctity of discourse with radical ideas that are clearly inflammatory and dangerous. I couldn't be happier, frankly. — 🌳 Sarah Reeson 🍀 Exposed Frailties 🌳 (@MoveablePress) January 27, 2020 I have gone Full Ariel with the hair dye. Should this […]

  • Stupid White Men

    Stupid White Men

    And yet another ex-hero uses a position of privilege to chuck his toys out of the pram. This melanin-light male can get in the sea. :( https://t.co/0dcX2hsf4X — 🗿 Sarah Reeson 🗿 Unexpected Metaphor 🗿 (@MoveablePress) January 4, 2020 I used to want to meet this man. Brazil‘s been my favourite film since it was […]

  • Awakening

    Awakening

    In bed at 9am last night may not be some people’s idea of enjoyment the Saturday before Christmas, but it worked for me. Considering how peculiar I’ve felt over the last couple of days, this morning’s full-on cold and only minimal mouth pain is an inconvenience I’ll be more than happy to live with. The […]

  • Living by Numbers

    Living by Numbers

    Thanks to an article in Sunday’s Guardian I am now considering the concept of Quantified Self: a term coined by Gary Wolf and Kevin Kelly in 2007. The latter is an ex Wired journalist, former said magazine’s founder executive editor. Both are cited as founding fathers of the Quantified Self Institute in the Netherlands, whose aims are […]

  • Big Time

    Big Time

    This week’s been fucking mental, it has. The 5 of 7 days with exercise is working out quite nicely: ideally I should break on Tuesday instead of Sunday, which is easily fixed going forward. Thus far, Fitbit has recorded 369 active minutes and we’re only at Saturday lunchtime. Steady momentum, meet consistency. I’ve today also exceeded […]

  • Happy

    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. A great deal has changed in that intervening couple of years, not just […]

  • A Whole New World

    A Whole New World

    I put a lot of stock on my fitness devices and the result they provide, but today’s post is a reminder that sometimes, numbers are not the whole story: 59% effort looks, on reflection, like I didn’t try. In this case, nothing is further from the truth. What those numbers don’t show is how long I […]

  • A Whiter Shade of Pale

    A Whiter Shade of Pale

    Plus, in Interesting Aside News: at least one piece of my constructive criticism has been acted upon at the Gym. Stuff can and does change if you find the right words to use. USE MORE RIGHT WORDS. pic.twitter.com/zsf2ZzFRCX — 🗿 Sarah's Poems 📝 100% Passion Guaranteed 🗿 (@MoveablePress) March 23, 2019 It’s good to know […]
