Well, I have the conversation more and more about how times goes faster as you get older. It’s obvious, y’know. A month when you are 32 years old is a lot shorter than a month when you are say, only one year old! Anyway, my last life update post was in November, so no better time than now to check in and share a few bits of news which don’t really warrant a blog post all of their own!
I’ve added new classes to my schedule! …Back in November I shared with you that I successfully auditioned at FRAME for their Frame Lift class. Since then I also got trained up in their BoxFit concept and am slowly but surely learning the ropes of some more of their classes so I am able to not just take on cover but potentially be offered permanent classes. But there is no more potential about it as this week, I start teaching my first permanent Lift classes at Frame Shoreditch! Now I hope you’re more of the early bird type than me as classes start at 645am and 715am (both 45 minutes) but I figured I could handle this once a week with a little organisation (pack my bag the night before) and getting to bed at a decent time! If you have any more tips to help me feel fabulous with a 5am alarm please do share them with me!
Did you see my feature in Women’s Running magazine?! …you can see more about this on my Instagram post (below) but if you haven’t already, I think you still have a short amount of time to pick up the April issue and read my Contributors interview as well as my London Winter Run Race Report.
T H R O W B A C K . Earlier this month, I joined thousands of runners to reclaim the roads of London in aid of Cancer Research UK… . Being my 3rd year running the London Winter Run, I decided to share just my Thanks You’s in a wrap up post on the blog and the rest?! Well… . If you pick up the April 2017 Issue of @womensrunninguk (out today 23/2) look out for my features… . page 7.

Amidst everything, I managed to take my business to launch successfully! …you remember Borrow My Blender right?! I’ve been busy working on that business plan throughout 2016 and finally got the go ahead to go to launch group (kinda like Dragons Den) with The Princes Trust. I wasn’t applying for a loan so the process was a little more straightforward but I still had to complete financial projections and such. So now, I think all the serious work begins and I know how powerful word of mouth is so please do give me a shout if you think we could work together or hear of an opportunity that you think would be a good fit! …Keep an eye out on Facebook, Instagram and the website too to see where we will be popping up next (pssst, we’ll be at lululemon Covent Garden for Mothers Day weekend and London Marathon weekend so pop by and see me for a complimentary smoothie…).
I’ve managed to keep running even though my usual M.O is to stop after a race! …the picture above is from International Women’s Day at the new Adidas Studio on Brick Lane. I’ve been attending the Wednesday evening sessions whenever my schedule allows me and IWD happened to fall on a run club day… If I can’t make the Wednesday evening sessions, I try to make it along to the Monday Adidas Runners South London sessions (mixed) which are usually a push in pace for me (boys clearly make the group run faster!). In my last life update, Winter Run Club had just smashed session number one and already we spent 14 weeks running together, ran our race (see update above) and have dissolved! I love being a part of a community when it comes to running and hope to get more involved with Adidas Runners if / when the opportunity arises!
I was also lucky enough to be invited along to a shoot with Adidas Runners with other members of the community so keep an eye out for when the campaign drops…
Last but not least, I’ve managed to rope myself into another audition, this time at Best’s Bootcamp. I attended the launch of the studio back in May 2016. Now I didn’t plan this, but I saw the audition notification on Instagram and figured I would enquire. I plan on attending even if just for the experience…. but who knows, eh?!
…and breathe!! …I do have so much more coming up to share too, but I will save that for next month when it’s all confirmed.
What’s going on with you?!
