Finding My Flow in 2023

I’m at my best when I have some goals to work towards. Even when they are not fully achieved, they act as a guiding light of sorts, keeping me showing up and pushing myself to be and do more. I’m so excited to share my running goals for 2023. Some are quite similar to the… Continue reading Finding My Flow in 2023

How I Plan to End 2022 with A Bang!

At the start of the year, I set six major goals, each with a number of mini goals embedded in them. When I look at them now, I don’t think they were overly ambitious, in fact, unlike previous years, they were quite achievable. But this year has just felt off for me, fitness-wise. Admittedly, I’ve… Continue reading How I Plan to End 2022 with A Bang!

Am I On Track With My 2022 Goals?

At the start of the year, I set five major goals with an additional BONUS goal thrown in for good measure. Most of the goals have a number of mini-goals/targets embedded in them which makes them a lot more challenging than I’d thought when I was setting them with all the vigour and energy that… Continue reading Am I On Track With My 2022 Goals?

What’s In Store For 2022?

Around this time last year I wrote a post titled, Is It Foolish To Plan For 2021? Given how the year turned out, it might well have been foolish! But I still stand by what I said in that post, “Goals keep me showing up and pushing myself to be and do more. Do I… Continue reading What’s In Store For 2022?

Is It Foolish To Plan For 2021?

I was that girl who loved bright and colourful stationery. The shops would sell brown paper covers for school books but I always chose the brightest paper and folders I could find. Remember those pretty letter and envelope sets? I’d always get several for Christmas and there was nothing I loved more. Even today, I… Continue reading Is It Foolish To Plan For 2021?

Let’s Keep On Keeping On

The third quarter of the year is done and dusted! I started on a high, took a bit of a nose-dive somewhere in the middle but ended with lots of smiles and tired muscles. Although I’ve gotten used to our altered state of affairs, I still long for pre-pandemic times. I miss racing, like real… Continue reading Let’s Keep On Keeping On

Focus: Fight: Finish (Mid Year Review 2020)

My running theme for 2020 is “Focus – Fight – Finish” but of course when I chose those words I had no idea just how much I’d have to focus and fight to finish all the goals I had set. A year dedicated to my first marathon and 19 other exciting races (local and international)… Continue reading Focus: Fight: Finish (Mid Year Review 2020)

My 2019 Running/Fitness Goals

I LOVE the start of a new year. It’s always filled with so much promise and hope. I love setting new goals and starting on a blank sheet. Of course, each year has it’s ups and downs and often doesn’t go exactly¬†as planned. But I always find that setting goals keeps me focused on what… Continue reading My 2019 Running/Fitness Goals
