    Duet

    To prepare myself for going away, I’m writing this on my iPad. The WP app has always been notoriously flaky, and as it took three goes to load this after logging in, it is reassuring to see not much has changed in the five or so years since I did this last. I wrote two […]

    The Race

    Dear Strava, I’d like a quick word about your business model, if I may. Before we start, don’t worry, this is not a rant about Summit, I have no issues paying a subscription and never have. You have to fund yourselves somehow, that’s a given. My problem, such as it is, revolves around the countless […]

    Mirrorball

    There will be a moment, not long from now, when I rationalise my personal timeline. That’s nothing to do with social media followers either: this is the task of writing down notable moments in my existence to check the voracity of events. The stuff I can remember is VERY clear, almost technicolour in its brilliance. […]

  • Go Up

    Go Up

    I’m quite excited this morning. A Kickstarter which I backed nearly two years ago will arrive (according to UPS) on Friday. This piece of equipment delivers the end to a story which began on my birthday in 2018. No, really, the date on the video below is October 23rd, 2018. It is a story about […]

    Musclebound

    … and you’re back in the room. This weekend has taught me a lot about stamina: not just getting my legs to a place where I can sweat out a training programme without fear, but how things really can improve if you stop giving up. It is about pushing through the pain and discomfort, and […]

    Walk the Line

    25 minutes into that workout, I wanted to cry, give up and walk away. Then I got over myself. pic.twitter.com/1MfOv8TsIa — 🌗 Sarah Reeson 🌕 Precarious Epithet 🌓 (@MoveablePress) March 29, 2020 Progress is never an easy ask. A lot of the journey is adaptive reasoning: I can work harder, how do I work harder, […]

  • 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 […]

  • Regeneration

    Regeneration

    Never start ANY project on the first of the month. If it matters enough, procrastination won’t help. Begin when the idea strikes you, straight away. Planning can be refined about a week in. Of course, sometimes, you don’t need the organisation. Stuff just works. A decent way to finish the month :D #accountability pic.twitter.com/DCFY0r7bXi — […]

  • A Forest

    A Forest

    Yesterday’s PT was pyramid sets, and BOY can I feel it this morning: legs, arms and back are all in a state of high dudgeon. Also, as a compliment I pushed 29 minutes of cardio out of a body which, quite frankly, did not want to know. Every day this month that is the plan: something. The […]

  • Friends will be Friends

    Friends will be Friends

    We present as part of Time To Talk’s national day of discussion about mental health (Feb 7th) a week’s worth of posts about how this 52 year old finally made a difference and started listening to herself and others, before determining to improve life for the better… These views are mine alone, and absolutely 100% do not […]
