Caffeine free.

This is absurd to be writing a post about this but for me, and a lot of people, this is a big deal. For the past 8 days I have had no coffee and therefore no caffeine. And, well, I feel amazing. I feel incredibly energetic, I no longer get an afternoon 'crash' and I... Continue Reading →

Heat maps.

It's been a minute but I'm still here. I'm still running, swimming, yoga-ing, teaching, living life, planning, trying to better myself everyday. The one thing I've been slacking on - writing. I'm sorry for the big delay between this post and the last, I promise I'll make it up to ya some how... So, where... Continue Reading →

The plight of the morning runner

I get up at 5:40am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I get up at 6:20am on Saturday and Sunday. On Wednesday I get up at 6am on the hour. On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and either Saturday or Sunday (sometimes both) I run. Other than your usual bathroom antics and a quick drive to... Continue Reading →
