    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 […]

  • Good Day Sunshine

    Good Day Sunshine

    I managed a 30 minute bike session and a 45 minute Blaze session and I am still alive, capable of movement and feel pretty pleased with myself. Today I have really turned a significant corner o/ pic.twitter.com/FubMpiG7Sb — 🗿 Sarah Reeson 📝 Writer/Content Creator 🗿 (@MoveablePress) April 3, 2019 This morning, it was time to […]

    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 […]

  • Run for Home

    Run for Home

    Here’s the plan. The aim is five hours a week MINIMUM on cycle/treadmill. PT/Weights are counted separately. Thursday is Blaze. Wednesday and Sunday I play badminton with my daughter for an hour. Saturday therefore by necessity becomes ‘fuck me what was I thinking doing this’ Day. Cycling: I’m on Week Two of an FTP Builder Workout […]

  • Tour de France

    Tour de France

    That was the most horrible experience for quite some time, but it is fun 👍 pic.twitter.com/KQvW8Ef14A — 🌊 Sarah 📝 Shonky Gubbins 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) July 22, 2018 If you zoom in on that snap above, you’ll see the date on my acknowledgement is 2017. The organisers were giving out last year’s certificates at the finish. I […]

  • Run to the Hills

    Run to the Hills

    The biggest single problem I possess right now in terms of exercise ability is stamina. HIIT routines are now just that, but anything over 90 minutes and I will summarily wilt. What is required is an understanding of what my limits are, how to play to them and then finally exceed them.  Fortunately for me, […]

  • You Wear It Well

    You Wear It Well

    DAY FIVE of the Exercise Regime. Wednesday was a rest day, because exhaustion. That means today fitting in both a Gym and Cycling session. The changes to body are already obvious, and yes, having got on the scales this morning, there is a weight change. It isn’t much, but is undoubtedly there. Yesterday’s session in the […]

  • Hello Hello

    Hello Hello

    This week has become rather important for a lot of reasons. A number of these cannot be spoken about (as yet) but once the processes are complete, that will change. For today, however, I have daughter here after an extremely torrid week abroad and husband after a weekend where he couldn’t walk more than about […]

  • The Other Side

    The Other Side

    Needless to say, this is the loneliest I’ve felt for some time. — 🌊 Sarah Creates : Shonky Gubbins 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) May 18, 2018 From the low, you inevitably come up. How that used to happen was normally accompanied by a lot of thrashing and wailing. This time around, the day started with a lot […]

  • The Pleasure Principle

    Please just let people enjoy their lives without bemoaning what they have that you don't, or being critical of the choices they have made. Just be kind. NN all. — 🌊 Sarah Creates : Shonky Gubbins 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) May 14, 2018 There’s a blog post I could write this morning about how all of us […]
