An Apology

Trail running Reading

One of my own pet peeves is when people say they’re going to do something, and don’t do it.

And I’m guilty.

  • I started a podcast and didn’t have the time or expertise to do it
  • I shared a couple of strength workouts but wasn’t able to share them as regularly as I wanted
  • I wrote one monthly newsletter email then failed miserably to send anymore

I’m disappointed in myself, and so this blog post is an apology to you all. I’m sorry for being so quiet on the blog for the past 3 months. I apologise for not delivering on the above.

But it’s also a promise to be better. To do more, share more with you guys. Without the readers of this blog and the Instagram followers, I wouldn’t be where I am today and I want to show that appreciation.

I’m going to do my very best to share more workouts, more running advice and most podcasts with you in the coming weeks and months now that I’m not working full time at the hospital. It was intense doing 8 hour days on the wards, followed by 2-4 hours of nannying 3 nights a week. However, now that I’m back to a somewhat less hectic schedule (and not falling asleep into my lap at 9pm, I hope!), we will be back to a somewhat more regular posting pattern.

Posts I have planned for the next few weeks include;

  • My Christmas wish list & Runner’s Gift Guide
  • Why I take Collagen Protein instead of Whey
  • Lazy or Exhausted – when to skip your run and when to stay in bed
  • BCAAs – should runners be taking them?
  • 5 Things I wish I knew as a Beginner Runner
  • Legacy Book Review
  • Creating a Mental Battle Plan for your Race/Training

But I’d love to know if you have any blogs you’d like to request to add to my list!

Thanks for sticking with me through it all xx

    You have a lot going on, so I don’t think any of us feel like you should have been doing all those posts if you just didn’t have the bandwidth. But of course, I do enjoy reading when you’re able to post. 🙂

    Your training for the phoenix marathon – are you able to post the marathon training plan you are following. It would be really useful to your readers. Many thanks

      I’m working with a coach so I get set weekly runs – I’m sharing what I have done in (semi) regular training posts 🙂

    Sounds like you have a good plan for future blog posts but honestly I think most of us love the simple day in the life posts. I would also love to know how/when you grocery shop because the few times I’ve been to the UK (quite a few times honestly as I’m a dual citizen that has always lived in the US) there doesn’t seem to be much room in British kitchens/fridges for more than a day or two’s worth of shopping. So I think that would be awesome to know about. Also if you’d interact more with your commenter’s on both blog and instagram.

      Thanks Lindsay, great ideas for posts! And definitely hoping to work harder to reply to every comment on IG and blog xx
