    Fitness Instructors: Up Your Game

    Wednesday, February 17, 2016

    Fitness instructors, the time has come for you to get it together. Gone are the days when this was a nice little side earner for you. So too, are they times you thought this was an easy qualification to get in lieu of ‘getting a proper job’. See, the fitness landscape has changed and I […]

Cycling Breakthrough!

Well friends, as you know, I’ve been training for the Etape du Tour. I say ‘training’ – it’s been more of a prolonged exercise in how not to whinge week in, week out about how much I dislike cycling. Running is far more enjoyable for me and nowhere near as stuck up (yeah, I said […]

Heels of the Day

With so many marathons going on at the moment, toe nails are probably popping off all over the place, so it’s probably unfair of me to be posting sandals, but hey, they’re purdy, deal with it. That heel, the plaform, that perspex trim that doesn’t have a hint of stripper shoe about it – it’s […]

Etape Training Update

Well, as I type this, the Etape du Tour is 69 days away. Not that I’m counting or anything. I have a feeling those 69 days are gonna fly by. All of a sudden, I’m into the business end of training. I really enjoy the training process of any challenge I take on. There are […]

Street Athletes: Thru The Blue

I met Melissa back in 2011 when she was one of the participants in my first ever Team Bangs on the Run, taking on the Paris Half Marathon. At the time, she was just taking her first tentative steps back into fitness. But even then, she had a dogged determination and you could tell, this […]

Workout of the Week

Every Tuesday morning for the past few weeks, I’ve been getting up at the ass crack of dawn to get myself down to The Altitude Centre. They’ve been kind enough to give me one free session a week in the lead up to the Etape to help with my training. And my gosh, I am […]

Hoop Dreams: Marawa

Raise your hand if you loved hula hooping in the playground when you were a kid *shoots both arms in the air* Why did we ever stop doing that? It was fun and full of awesome. Well, for London-based professional hula hooper Marawa, she has wisely made sure that fun never stopped and has made […]

Heels of the Day

OK so, if you ran the London Marathon over the weekend, maybe you’re not thinking about slipping your feet back into heels just yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look at a pretty pair. Can we talk about these 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent beauties? It’s like having tapestry on your feet. And that […]

Fighting for a PB

With London Marathon coming up this weekend and a bunch of other marathons happening around this time of year, it’s hard to avoid talk of the 26.2 at the moment. Being part of a running crew, I’ve watched several members of the crew go through their marathon journeys over the past few months. The trials […]

Spectate & Congratulate!

One of the biggest events in the Capital’s (and every runner’s) calendar is upon us. The London Marathon is one of the best days of the year this great city. From January, the number of runners you see out on the weekends, tirelessly pounding the pavements in training seems to increase exponentially as more and […]
