  • Take a Chance on Me

    Take a Chance on Me

    This was a pleasant surprise to receive in the middle of a park in Ulverston on a breezy Saturday morning. This was also one of the things I just went for when it turned up in my feed at the start of the month. Sometimes, it is less about thinking and more just doing. Other […]

  • River


    The last few days have been a struggle, but here I am at the end of a day when everything got done, and my authentic voice survives intact. That’s what matters most, in the end, to survive and thrive regardless. There’s a lot to do this week as well, and I need to keep on […]

  • Keep on Moving

    Keep on Moving

    We are in ‘evolve or perish’ mode right now, which requires an almost daily reinvention of the game plan. I’m also four weeks out from a 30-mile bike ride on closed roads and nowhere near the capacity to complete it. Therefore, we need some training and a bit of practice, plus some better snacking options […]

  • Hello, Hello

    Hello, Hello

    This is the longest blog break here for a while. I’d like to explain why. If all I had to do was be more organized, this would be easy. The fact remains there is a lot more to my evolutionary step this time than just writing more lists. I have a body to properly alter, […]

  • Burn the Witch

    Burn the Witch

    Yup, they really are. Cramps in both hands, because holding my body weight for extended periods of time is HARD. Nobody tells you this shit when they write the exercise guides. Nobody complains about how much it hurts, because that’s what losers do. The pain is real, and enough to put many people off. Understanding […]

  • Push It

    Push It

    PT was a fucking REVELATION. BRB, brain having the most elegant of meltdowns. — 🌳 Sarah Reeson 🍀 Exposed Frailties 🌳 (@MoveablePress) February 19, 2020 My Trainer and I saw each other yesterday: normally I do it earlier in the week, but as I was in a forest, it seemed more sensible to rearrange. In […]

  • Boulevard of Broken Dreams

    Boulevard of Broken Dreams

    DAY 13: Experiences are GREAT. Getting out there, doing new stuff, enjoying all that Life’s ‘rich tapestry’ lays before you. Never turn down those never to be repeated offers, that’s for damn sure. However, for some of us, there are limits. I’m at peak mental capacity right now, and all that’s happened is words on a screen. It’ll […]

  • Round and Round

    Round and Round

    Today, I went to a Cycle Park. Not just any one, but THE one. Inside the Velodrome ❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/aWAnHcTouu — 🌊 Sarah Creates : Shonky Gubbins 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) July 1, 2018 The Lee Valley Velodrome is the legacy from 2012’s Olympics which I’ll be spending quite a lot of time near or close to in […]

  • Strong


    When this moment is looked back on, undoubtedly it will be considered as something of a watershed. Yesterday I went and ran for 30 minutes at the Gym, and then did 35 minutes of weights. Walking home, I thought I’d worked hard, but the reality is that I didn’t. What was proper hard was the […]

  • Run for Home

    Run for Home

    Once upon a time, exercise scared me. I’d find reasons not to do it: my knees were bad, I took forever to recover, I couldn’t because I was bleeding. Looking back on the litany of excuses, there is now an understanding of the true root cause. I was afraid. I would get out of breath […]
