» Marathoning | Not for Me FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

» Marathoning | Not for Me FueledByLOLZ I don’t love the marathon distance. I wrote this post almost a week before running the New York City Marathon. About 2 weeks beforehand, I realized I just didn’t “love” marathoning. Before New York in 2018, I thought maybe I didn’t like marathons because I hadn’t run enough. Maybe I just needed practice. So in 2018, I decided to run another. I did well and ran a PR of 3:07. The truth is,…

Controlling the Fade – Salty Running – Running Fitness Article

Controlling the Fade – Salty Running “Don’t go out too fast!” It’s some of the most common running advice around. But is it ever alright to ignore it? Maybe. What if you’ve got perfect weather and a pie-in-the-sky goal? What if you’ve got a friend or a pace group at the ready that might be just a little too quick for you? What if you need a certain time by a certain date (ahem, last chance to BQ or OTQ….)?…

Runner down but not out ? The secret to running, it really is this simple. – Running Fitness Article

Runner down but not out ? The secret to running, it really is this simple. For the first time since I started this blog I didn’t write a post for a calendar month. October 2019 was probably a low point in my running career highlighting in a 37:37 10k at the John Gilmour track last Friday evening. With Strava there’s no hiding from the truth and, looking back, I’d ran the John Gilmour 10k twice previously. The first time was…

» New Balance 1400v6 Shoe Review FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

The New Balance 1400v6 Shoe Review: The New Balance 1400 is a consistent and established racing flat for many runners. There is enough cushion to race a marathon, but it’s also light enough to race a hard mile. In my quest to find a marathon racing shoe for the New York City Marathon, I tried the New Balance 1400v6. Ultimately, I think the New Balance Fuelcell Rebel will be my marathon choice, but I like the ride of the NB…

Race Recap: Bridgehampton 5K – Cuckoolemon – Fitness Article

I woke up on race morning cool as a cucumber.  No race-day jitters for me.  I am not a detective, but I can easily attribute this to one clear fact: I wasn’t signed up to run a race. At 33 weeks pregnant, my already mediocre running talents were in near total hibernation. Registering for races was totally off my radar. But Matthew (my husband, remember him?) was signed up for the Bridgehampton Half and my pals Katy and Sarah were…

Thanks to Frank Golden for letting me use these images – they are great! Find him here on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/Frankgoldenphotography/  It’s been a while since my last blog post, apologies for that.  I have been hibernating and feeling grumpy at the most hideous winter for a long time – muddy, wet, cold and snow besieged – I am so looking forward to winter 18/19 (said no English person ever).  Yesterday somebody mentioned Christmas and it put me in a bad mood…
