OUT RUN 2013


One of my goals for 2014. Simple.

Out Run 2013.


In 2013, I ran 250.89km. My most km's in a year. EVER. My average year (of the past 6 or 7) is 118.6km.

Seen as I ran not 1 single kilometre in January 2014, I was doubtful I was going to complete this challenge. But with each month, I ramped up my mileage training for the London Duathlon. After a short break, kept alive with Run Club Wednesday, it's back to training for the half marathons I have planned in spring of 2015.

I love the nike plus website for the statistics it provides you. What day of the week do you run most?! 


What time of day do you most run?! 


So my GRAND TOTAL for 2014?!

365.2km at Tuesday 30th December 2014




What are your running goals for 2015?!

How Have Things Changed In a Year?


This entire festive / holiday season I've been cautious about just spurting out the cliche posts. Not because I don't enjoy reading them; more because I knew there would be enough of those posts out there. None of us needed another "gift list for runners"...and we don't really need another "round up of 2014". I mean, if you read my blog, you either have read all the bits you want to read or the archives are sitting there for when you are bored and have time to kill.

So I took some inspiration from a few places to share with you my views on looking back over the last year and looking forward. More of an in the moment attitude...

2014 vs 2015 


Where I live | Where I work | How I eat | My Health


Accomplishments


Running Resolutions 

Running highlight of the year: 
This has to be the race that amounted for my slowest time EVER. Men's Health Survival of the Fittest. Over two hours to complete this 10km race but I overcame physical obstacles and did things I didn't think were possible. It opened the door for me to consider learning to swim again to take on a triathlon in 2015.

Biggest running lesson of the year:
Not one that I have learnt personally but one I will learn from. Listen to your body. If something doesn't feel right, or you have an injury don't ignore it. Get it seen to. Don't be afraid about the money you will spend. Think of the outcome from not getting it looked at vs the outcome of being fully recovered.

Running resolution for the next year:
To do what I never do. Train properly for the half marathons that I have signed up for. To run on those days and be proud of the journey that got me to the start line as I am of the time I finish in. Maybe I might OUTRUN 2014?!

Attitude of Gratitude


10 things I am grateful for right now:

  • being physically able to run 
  • having a job to provide for myself 
  • to people who take the time to read my posts here on keep it simpElle 
  • those who provide me with inspiration and knowledge 
  • the fitness opportunities available to me 
  • the support from Human Race to get race ready for the Windsor Triathlon 
  • my mum for being the best proofreader on the blogosphere 
  • the internet for giving us bloggers a voice 
  • having experienced the first steps of landmark education 
  • having food to put on my table 

So again, LET'S DO THIS 2015!

Greenwich Christmas 10km #MyMoments


Last year, I kinda missed out on all the festive fitness. The Team Naturally Run (TNR) girls got together for a run on Saturday morning which meant that I was either working or teaching. But for 2014 the Greenwich (5km or) 10km on Sunday 21st December was the race of choice.

I'd had this race booked in for weeks and already decided in my head that I would run the 5km option (you choose on the day). However, when I put my half marathon training schedule in my diary I was due to run 6miles (approx 10km) on this day for a slow "long run". So that was decided for me.



I rocked up at the start line about with 15 mins to spare where I met the other TNR girls and got myself into costume. I was running as a Christmas Tree. I'm trying this year with the festive spirit! RunThrough, who organised the race, did say it would start promptly at 10am. It did. I dumped my bag and found the girls at the start line (oh and set up my GPS watch of course). My aim was to run the course at a pace of 6:24 min/km. Pretty casual, but I didn't anticipate the hills that were on the course.


From my recollection, there were two ugly hills and one which we only ran half way up. The course was two laps of this route. The hills killed my pace which confused me; it took my average race pace down which meant I ran faster at other times to make up for it. I genuinely wasn't sure if this was what I was supposed to do!

Although I didn't need my phone to track my run I still had it as I had downloaded the last two episodes of the podcast Serial to listen to. This was the best "company" ever. The episodes had me wondering, laughing and in an entirely different world. If you haven't already gotten hooked on Serial do so now before series 2 comes out in 2015!


I got to the finish line and felt pretty damn good. The reception from the TNR girls at the sideline put a big smile on my face too! A pudding shaped medal was my reward...and somehow I missed all the mince pies!

So that's one week of half marathon training in the bag :) and I'm happy! I'm slowly getting used to using the watch instead of my phone - I miss the voice feedback and cheers via social media from friends though. I'm also getting used to actually training and running at specific paces. I think this will be massive for me! 

Check out the 'Train with Elle' page for the events you can find me at! I'm using small local races as my long runs on the weekend! 

Have you started training for your spring events yet?!

Discover SKNY Box

I know what you're thinking! SKINNY?!


Nope. SKNY. Sounds like skinny but stands for 'A Stronger Knowledgable New You'. Now that's more like it huh?!

"SKNY Box is a weight loss and fitness service packaged in a monthly box to help more women create their best body ever in a simple, fun way."

SKNY box sent me out one of their November / December 2014 boxes to take a nosy in. It arrived wrapped in a pink bag (so cliche but I love pink!).

The first thing I noticed about the box was I couldn't eat the entire contents immediately in one sitting. This my friends, is a major plus point.

Each box contains... 


Something to eat. 

Instantly edible snacks were included. Some old favourites such as NKD bars (a huge fan esp when on Whole30) and some new to me such as Beauty Candy. I nibbled on these over the following few days to fully enjoy the contents of the box. I drank the lemon green iced tea before I headed out to teach to give me an extra boost!


Something to cook. 

This was my favourite bit! I could actually get a whole meal out of this box! First up, I had the noodles one night when I came in late and was starving! They took 3 minutes to prepare yet are healthy and nutritious!
Then I used the spice mix on some pork chops in the slow cooker one night! I woke up to a wholesome lunch ready to be packed for work! I'll be using the natural sweetener when I get my baking on! I don't use sweetener for tea or anything else so it will last me a while! So I'll remember this box for months to come...


Something to do. 

Finally, included in the box is a months workout! Put together by a qualified trainer it comes complete with images and instructions! This months workout - the 30 day November Winter Workout - is made up of body weight training and high intensity interval training.

You can sign up via their website - http://sknybox.co.uk - and put it to the test yourself!

What are your thoughts on monthly delivery boxes?! Do you already subscribe?! What's your favourite product you've discovered so far?!

Living the simpElle life: Mollie

Welcome again :) 365 days of 2014, 365+ days of living the simpElle life. The final one in the series.

This fortnightly mini series which started almost one year ago in 2013 - Living the simpElle life - is where I talk to someone who has been empowered to change.

I heard a great phrase last year -

"The Universe is made up of stories, not of atoms"

 - so that is what I want to share with you, stories, to open up the Universe to us all!

Each individual we meet embodies what this blog is about. They have dug deep to find motivation, they have sought inspiration and in doing so become inspirational to others. They have been empowered with knowledge to change and I hope that is what their story will do for the rest of us...

Meet: Mollie Millington 



I met Mollie through the blogosphere a couple years back! As well as blogging, Mollie is a London-based personal trainer and wellness coach. She also coordinates RODS Racing social media. 

 ...here's Mollie's story...

- {THEN} - 

Elle: What made you decide to start training / running? ...What were your plans / goals?

Mollie: Originally I started running in 2005 for a local RSPCA fundraiser. I played recreational football and thought running would help me play too. I developed Achilles tendinitis which made me turn to indoor cycling. I wanted a new competitive challenge and thought triathlons would satisfy my body's physical needs.  Most recently I have been using exercise as a way to manage stress levels and support RODS Racing (rodsracing.org).

- {HOW} - 

Elle: What's your favourite way to work out?

Mollie: Dancing, but I don't get to do it very often.  Second favourite would be indoor cycling with some great tunes.

Elle: What's your typical weekly exercise schedule?

Mollie: I just started marathon training so I have been running 5 days a week. It is a 25 week training program with a slooooow build up.  My work is a mile from my house which means I am lucky enough to cycle commute every day. We adopted a dog 10 weeks ago and I take him on 3-4 twenty minute walks a day. I am amazed how much weight I have lost with walking alone!


Elle: What / who has been your inspiration?

Mollie: This is a tough one.  I go through phases where I am super-motivated and others where I am over-committed and completely disinterested in exercise.  I make vision boards with images of strong women from my old fitness magazines and hang on the wall. I also hang every race bib up to remind me how far I have come.  Of course, the RODS program keeps me going too and my fellow London blogging friends.  Those girls are tough!

Elle: What was the first big difference in you, that made you feel proud and excited?

Mollie: When I was preparing for my wedding 4 years ago, I was lifting 3 times/week, eating right, and running.  I toned up and actually had biceps!

Elle: Did you make any changes to your diet once you started training?

Mollie: I try to drink 2L of water a day when I run and choose 'whole' foods as snacks (anything in its original form- apples, nuts, raisins, hummus).  Unfortunately, I have a Diet Coke dependency problem.

- {NOW} - 

Elle: How do you track your progress?

Mollie: I used to use a Nike fuel band but now I rely on Strava as I am mostly running and get more info about my training progress.

Elle: Have your goals changed since you started your journey?

Mollie: My goals are always changing. I register for races to keep me focused. Having a deadline helps me design a training plan that keeps me interested and fit.  Overall I want to be a strong capable woman.


Elle: How do you keep yourself motivated?

Mollie: RODs Racing plays a huge part in this.  I know with each mile I run, I am helping raise another dollar (and pound) for an orphan in need.
 
Elle: If you could go back and give advice to the "before" you...or any other person contemplating changing their lifestyle...what would you say?!  

Mollie: Don't ignore injuries. Stretch more. Take proper swim lessons (or spend money on anything you would like to really be good at. You are worth it!)

...so what d'ya think?!

SimpElle Top 3 Healthy Habits

It's almost the end of the year - the time when we get wrapped up in congratulating ourselves on what we achieved over the past twelve months whilst planning what we can do for the twelve to come. So no better time than now to share with you some of my favourite fitness "hacks". The little things that become habits and add up...

As simplyhealth have pointed out "healthy habits aren't just for January".

Here are my Top 3:

1. Add 'superfoods' to your meals



Chia seeds, nut butters, cinnamon and cocoa powder are great options for your porridge / smoothie at breakfast packing it with protein, antioxidants as well as keeping you fuller for longer! Half an avocado with your meals or cooking with coconut oil also provide you with healthy fats too!

2. Turn your commute into a workout



No matter your fitness level, there is an option for you! I currently cycle 2-3 days of each week which gives me 60 minutes of activity on each day. If you get the bus you could get off 1 or 2 stops early or even run commute part of or your whole journey?! The options are unlimited!


3. Keep hydrated 

When it gets colder we are less inclined to drink water. But you can trade it in for herbal teas...skipping milk and sugar results in less (if any calories!). When your'e adequately hydrated you'll feel more energised and alert throughout the day. It'll also prevent you from eating when you "think" you are hungry! I keep a bottle of water with me at all times - in my bag, at the gym, at work!

"Being healthy should be a way of life, not a New Year's resolution. Incorporating just a few simple changes can lead to higher energy levels and all round better health. So don't wait for January to kick-start your new outlook; get going immediately. Anybody fancy a walk?" simplyhealth 

What are your healthy hacks and habits?! Or any you plan on implementing?!

Elle About Town, November & December 2014

As ever, it's been a busy couple of months especially with everyone and everywhere gearing up for the Holidays! This is what's been going on in and around my simpElle bubble...

Events: lululemon Pub Run 


With the new store opening soon in Chelsea, they arranged for an extra special Run Club. We started from the Covent Garden Store as usual but ran to Chelsea with our final destination being the Pub where drinks, nibbles and christmas spirit were provided. It was a short 4-5km run on a chilly evening but worth it to be warmed up with spiced cider at the other end. I couldn't stay long at the pub as I was off to the Pure Taste Launch.

Events: Sweaty Betty #SS15 Press Day

A morning for us bloggers / media types to get a sneak peek of whats to come. Everything from running, yoga, gym and their exclusive collections were available for our perusal. I fell in love with quite a few pieces including a swimsuit and some cycling specific kit! Here are a few snaps I took...




Social: Swingers Crazy Golf 

Then, it was time for some play! Can't be all work! I went along (again) to Swingers to review for the GymBox blog. Check out my guest post <here>.

Lifestyle: Meeting my life coach  

I signed up for the Windsor Triathlon in June 2015 as my BHAG. Organised by Human Race, they've organised me a whole heap of support. First up on the list was Jeff from www.the-tonic.com. His job is to support me in keeping a work life balance with my training. This was when sh*t got real. Saying everything out loud both got me a little scared as well as excited! He put a few stakes ini the ground of where he expects me to be and when which will help me to break down my bigger goal into smaller steps. He's also someone else I have to be accountable to! I mean, I could blog about all the prep for this triathlon then not mention it again after March...not now though eh?!

Classes: End of Nike Training Club Teaching 

The end of an era! Check out the blog post I wrote <here> with some of my favourite memories from the classes I have taught over the years!

Coming Up....

Physiotherapy Appointment 
As part of my Windsor Tri support, I have a physio appointment booked in for the first week of January. I've never really been to a physio before so I'm intrigued to see what I learn. I believe we'll be doing gait analysis and all that jazz so keep an eye out on the blog to see what I get from the experience...

London Winter Run 
Final chance to get a few quid off your entry and join us at the start line of this 10km on 1st February 2015! Motivation for those training for events in the spring and summer!


Join our Facebook event page too to be kept up to date with all that is going on!

What's coming up for you in the next month?!

#OfficeSpaceRace Results

Just under a couple of months ago, I took up a challenge set by Flexioffices - the UK's leading office space providers...


The Challenge -  Run a designated route (past several Flexioffice's offices on the way as fast as I can)

There was a prize up for grabs for this challenge but I just went out to enjoy some fresh air in my downtime between my activities for the day. So when I found out that I WON after competing with four other amazing bloggers, you can imagine how ecstatic I was, right?! 

The Prize?! A Nike GPS watch worth £149!!! 



It couldn't have come at a more perfect time - I've officially started my Half Marathon training this week for the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon on 22nd February 2015. My first training session was a SPEED session - 4x400m. My next session is outdoors with the lululemon Run Club, so I'll be taking the watch for it's first test run then! No doubt I'll have lots to share with you about my training and the watch so stayed tuned! 

For this challenge, I ran a route around Shoreditch on one of the most beautiful days in October! Flexioffices have spaces all across London <<check them out here>> from which you can create your own route! 

What's your favourite run route?! What gadget(s) can't you run without?!

Review: Ozeri Rev Digital Bath Scale with Electro-Mechanical Dial


You'll know by now that I'm not a huge advocate of weighing myself. Once every two or three months on average is how much I do and usually it's half dressed as I run through the changing rooms of the gym when I teach.

When I was offered the chance to review these scales, I thought why not? They could live in the bathroom where I could weigh myself more accurately pre/post shower every now and again.

I had a quick flick through the instruction book - I like things to be simple to use. It takes 3 aaa batteries (supplied) which I slipped into the unit at the back of the scales. It calibrates by standing on it, letting it do its thing, then stepping off. The next measurement you then take will be the accurate one. The display flashes up the result and when it holds still thats the final weight.

The display is huge. Can't miss it. Huge and bright. It displays your weight in both a digital format and using the old school dial (which is actually "electric") and you can choose between kg and lbs (via a little button on the bottom you press).

It also has a 24hr alarm to remind you to weigh yourself at the same time each day. This is one setting I won't be using but for those on a weight loss journey this may come in useful.

Currently on Amazon for £19.99 you can't really go wrong!  <<Check it out here>>

Guest Post: Virtuous Chocolate Nut Butter Cups


These aren't whole30 but they are refined sugar-free, paleo, vegetarian (can be vegan), and very, very tasty. 



Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw cacao/cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cashew nut butter (check out MyProtein for good quality, huge tubs!
  • 2-3 tbsp raw honey/maple syrup (watch out for those weird fructose-and-maple-syrup blends big supermarkets stock, get raw stuff if possible) / brown rice syrup
  • More almond or cashew nut butter, for the filling

1. Melt the coconut oil over a gentle heat in a small saucepan. Add the tbsp of cashew butter and blend it in (this gives the chocolate a softer) 

2. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth. Add the honey when the mixture is a little cooler (the heat kills off all the good stuff in the honey), or for a vegan option, use maple/rice malt syrup.

3. Fill the bottoms of 6-8 cupcake cases with a tablespoon of the chocolate mixture and place them in the freezer for 5 minutes.

4. Check the bases are set, then dollop a teaspoon of almond or cashew butter into the centre of each one. 

5. Use the rest of the chocolate mixture to cover the nut-butter centre and refreeze for 5-10 mins, until set. 



That's it. Dangerously easy!

Kate :) 



As a singer, yoga teacher and lover of all things tasty, I'm constantly reviewing my connection with my body - and, by extension, the food I eat. I got into cooking in my early teens, when creating the perfect brownie was the biggest life problem I faced. Now, after digestive problems, sugar crashes and migraines have led me to a largely sugar-,grain-, and dairy-free existence, my love of cooking is driven by the search for food that is satisfying and nourishing. And just so you know, I consider eating almond butter from the jar (daily) both satisfying and nourishing..."

FIRST Half Marathon Training Plan


Time to get real. There's about 10 or so weeks left until I am on the start line for a Half Marathon again. I in fact, have three lined up for the Spring. All topped off with a triathlon. Excited much?!

I put it out there to the world that I was looking for a training plan and this what was shared with me. The FIRST Half Marathon plan.

What caught my eye about it was that you run just three times per week which would leave me time to do all the other things I love, and need to do in a week.


I spent a little time doing all the calculations for the paces I would need to run for my Speed, Tempo and Long Runs. Sh*t. They're pretty fast. But I'm excited to see what comes out of this. I've been proud of my HM results previously and that's been without training.

I'll be sharing all my training milestones here on 'keep it simpElle' so keep an eye out to hear how my training is going! Officially I start my training on Monday 15th December. This Monday. Yup.

What are your big goals for 2015? Do you have training plans in place?!

Sport'n Style: VeloVixen Part 2


As part of my "prize" for winning the VeloVixen Next Top Model competition I received a gift card worth £150. I could let loose on their website and buy anything I wanted. I took this matter seriously though and ended up splitting my order. I decided I'd spend some of the money on "sensible" things especially as when I did place my first order I didn't actually own a bike (but it was on order!)

Check out my first order here <<Sport'n Style: VeloVixen>> Everything I chose was either to keep my new bike secure and / or to keep me cycling as the weather changes.

My second order, however, was all about treating myself!

Ginger & French Bike Mug



I'll be moving back to Essex soon and won't be able to cycle commute which equates to less cycling overall. So to try and help me keep that cycle feeling, I chose this mug to drink my beverages out of each and every morning!

Vulpine Women's Cycling Cap 



One to put down till the summer! I'm happy to report it actually did fit my head, over all the hair I have! I wore it out under my helmet on a day when it was raining and it helped to keep the water out of my eyes. I then just left it to dry on the radiator when I got home! I never ever thought of buying a cycling cap but after seeing how cute it looked when I did the photoshoot I was sold! 

Vulpine Women's Merino Short Race Socks



To match my hat :) ...I only recently understood the benefits of Merino Wool. It's a perfect material for us who like to get sweaty. It also keeps you warm which is very much needed when cycling outdoors in the less than perfect weather. 

Suzy Q Silver Plated Bicycle Necklace 



I finally, FINALLY, got my hands on one of these! Couldn't be happier! Delicate and understated. I chose it to serve as a reminder of what an amazing day I had on the VeloVixen Photoshoot in September! 

All of these items make great stocking stuffers too for the cyclists in your life! 

What are your favourite cycling accessories or stocking stuffers for Christmas?!

Pure Taste #Paleo Restaurant Launch


Having just completed my second round of Whole30, I couldn't have been happier to have stumbled across the news of this restaurant opening!

Pure Taste Restaurant pitch themselves as "paleo friendly fine dining" but they don't just cater for those who eat paleo. They cater for many different dietary restrictions including vegetarian, Whole30, autoimmune paleo and egg free! Their head chef, Holly Redman herself suffers from coeliac disease so understands where we are coming from!

I myself am lactose intolerant which when shared at dining experiences ends with me having to opt for the vegetarian option. I remember once being at a conference where they brought me out a plate of stir fried peppers for my lunch.

The evening was a combination of drinks, canap├ęs and meeting new people (many, many nutritionists in the same room!). I was blown away by the food; I tried new things - scallops and quails eggs, had new variations on things I often avoid - donuts and key lime pie, and sampled some of the best wine and Prosecco I have had in a long time (from Nothing But The Grape). Second to tasting the food for yourself is taking a gander at the snaps I managed to get before everything was eaten up!










Rumour has it that they are booked solid until January! I plan on starting my third round of Whole30 in January to finish early Feb so I think I will have to book myself in for a celebratory dinner!

Pure Taste is located in London's Notting Hill. Just the place if you are looking for a guilt free meal! Meet the new "cheat meal"!

Do you have food intolerances? How do you handle them when you eat out? Or do you have a favourite place which caters to dietary requirements?!
