Blue Sky – 30 Mins – Cardio Run

This morning started with 10 minutes of focused breathing, mindful meditation. Typically when I wake the amygdala kicks in and I start to ruminate so 10 minutes to centre myself and enter a calm state. This is followed by a review of my daily plan. So again to ensure rumination is not an issue IContinue reading “Blue Sky – 30 Mins – Cardio Run”

Blue Sky – 30 Mins – Cardio – Legs

Wake up – 10 minutes breathing exercise for calming the nervous system – guided meditation. I am not a guru but 10 minute sitting on the settee following your breath to help reduce rumination is a great way to start the day. Then a #BlueSky daily plan one list in one place everything you wantContinue reading “Blue Sky – 30 Mins – Cardio – Legs”

Couchto5K #Couchto5K – Laura thanks for the motivation. Unfortunately because of poor weather I haven’t had the confidence to run for 2 weeks so decided to just to try a warm up jog. Managed 25 minutes plus 8 mins warm up/ down. Ran this in 3 stints with a short rest in-between. Felt good toContinue reading “Couch to 5K – 2021 – Warm Up”

Couch to 5k – Delayed – recommendation?

Sorry Laura but #Couchto5K has been put on temporary hold. I am walking regularly but unfortunately I am not confident enough to run on the Greenway and paths of #StokeOnTrent. Just wondering because I have skipped a week – would you recommend going back a week or so ?

Couch to 5K – Run 16

Complete – thanks Laura #Couchto5k #Run16 #Week6. Stuck to the plan exactly and it feels a little less challenging than #Run15 and I assume that’s all about the psychology of becoming a runner 🏃‍♂️. I must say as a morning person running in the daylight is much more enjoyable, the shortest day is just aroundContinue reading “Couch to 5K – Run 16”

Couch to 5K – Run 14

Complete thank you Laura #Couchto5k. Certainly was a run in the cold and dark. Can not say I found this easy but remembered to focus on a slower pace to ensure I completed this run.

I may just complete Run 12a on Sunday before moving on to make sure I am fully recovered andContinue reading “Couch to 5K – Run 12”

Couch to 5k – #Run10 – Week 4

#Couchto5K #Run10 Complete thanks Laura. Week 4 is upping your game to spending more time running 🏃‍♂️ than walking so its important to remember your pace and also focusing on deep breaths helped me. Definitely a more difficult run for a couch potato 🥔 like me but stick to plan #Couchto5K and we will getContinue reading “Couch to 5k – #Run10 – Week 4”
