Could you run everyday? I know I can't. I try every New Year. 1st Resolution, go out on a run everyday. I once lasted until February, but then fell off the wagon. So Fitness Friday today with my running hero. My 12 year old son!
In January he made a New Years Resolution. To run at least one mile every day. We are now nearly in November and he is still going strong. Even when we have been away on holidays, or days out. Even in the pouring rain and last Winters snow. As Roy Castle used to say "Dedication's all you need."

I have to admit...
I am not too good at eating my 5 portions of Fruit and Veggies. I normally eat at most two or three.
I always encourage the Hubby and Kids to eat theirs.
To be fair they always do. I am the naughty one. I start off with the best of intentions Banana smoothie or shake for breakfast. Yet by lunchtime the apple and pear I was going to have with my lunch, gets replaced with biscuits. I sometimes even get the fruit and veg ready. Carrot sticks, Apples cored and peeled. in the end though I cannot be bothered to chew them and up dipping a biscuit in a cup of tea.

I have had a great week for eating more healthy and getting out running.
Trouble is I keep forgetting to log my runs.
I blame summer holidays!!
Some days lately I can not even remember what day it is.
I do love my usual routines and finding time for the gym.
Exercise really does make you feel better in yourself.
Not getting out exercising makes me grumpy!! Haha!!

A few weeks ago I got to review some Gel Indicate Trainers from Asics as part of the Pound The Road campaign. I love to run and having new kit always gives me some extra motivation. I was so pleased how comfy the trainers are. I am happily back into regular running now and each run feels just that bit easier.
Last week I got some very exciting news from The Running Bug , who organised the reviews, that I have been chosen to be one of Asics Ambassadors for the August #PoundTheRoad campaign too.
This means I get to try out some more fabulous trainers that are exclusive to Intersports.
My Sunday photo was taken yesterday at Parkrun.
Me, my youngest son and daughter ran it. It was so warm at 9 oclock and we all worked hard. Especially my daughter as she got a pb. She ran around with her dad, so he could encourage her on. When I had done the race I waited for her to finish so I could cheer her on. Not to far behind me this week too.
I rushed over and gave her a big hug but she was feeling a little sick as she had sprinted to the end..

I have really been enjoying getting out running again this week.
Mollie my Border Collie puppy has not been to keen on letting me go out the door on my own though!!
It has been hard work giving myself a push out the door as feel so guilty going out without her. When I'm out and forgot about feeling guilty, I remember why I love running once I am out.
Oh well Mollie one day you will be able to come with me!!

The last few weeks we have been so busy, knocking things off our bucket list. So many posts to get ready!! The first week the children were eager to get up early and do things. This week they prefer to stay up late and get up even later!!
Last week they were up at 8am and ready for basket ball. We were up and out so early we had to put our jumpers on as it was quit chilly.

It has been a hard few months for me when it comes to getting out running. After having a month off from running with ill health, I knew it was going to be a long slow process getting back into regular running again.
Sunday, 2 August 2015
This week it has been all about taking my time with running, not getting stressed about finding time to get out. Also leaving my watch behind and not bothering about time and distance. Running when I have a spare minute to myself and the children are busy, puppy fed and walked. Not easy then!?!
With the children on school holidays and my husband off work, finding me time has been difficult.
Days out here, a few nights away there. Chip and cake shops on days out. Chinese take outs, ice cream and fried breakfasts on a few days away. Pizza when home after a long drive home and tired!
I will be glad to have a break over the next few days. Exercises a plenty to burn off the calories. Healthier eating a must!!

When I have time off from running, it always feels like I'm starting again at the beginning and never achieved anything when you did run!There is always some kind of distraction, getting me away from a run. Illness, housework, looking after family, painting the house, ironing or looking after a puppy. I have used all of these excuse over the last month and before you know it weeks and weeks have passed by. Now I am trying to get back into a routine, before the children break up for summer on Wednesday.

On a stroll through a nearby park a few weeks ago. My youngest two and me saw some tennis courts. It took me back more years than I care to remember. I loved playing tennis as a kid, however like many things over the years I seemed to have forgotten all about it.

Not much running this week. I am still in pain from my fall when I was out running 2 weeks ago. This week my running has taken a back seat .Just a 2 miles run on Monday and a 3 miles race on Saturday. The race was not good when you are in pain!!
