RED January Week 1

Miles run: 18 Have I run at least one mile a day? Yes Was I always in a better mood afterwards?  Yes (disputed by boyfriend) Did I wave/say hello/thumbs up people? Sometimes. It turns out not many people venture out in the dark in -1 degree temperatures. However, those brave souls I have come acrossContinue reading “RED January Week 1”


Strive Goes Live

I would love to say that I have been busy learning how to speak Japanese and bake bread sticks during lock down but in reality have been drinking too much and enjoying rubbish on Netflix (Tiger King and Selling Sunset are highlights of my binge watching). I salute anyone that has managed to be remotelyContinue reading “Strive Goes Live”

My boyfriend then said “now do a Turkish Get Up.” As if that would be something IContinue reading “(Attempt at) Weighted Belt Workout*”

Conquering a fear of dance based exercise

Ruby’s day 35? of REDJan As I ran out of time to do Pumpfit in January I decided I should still give it a go. I watched Facebook videos first and almost scared myself out of going. The class didn’t look unmanageable, but the ability required to move to the beat put me off.  AsContinue reading “Conquering a fear of dance based exercise”

The Big Finale – Seated Exercises for Seniors

Ruby’s Day 31 I Wish I could have finished REDJan with a bang. Run a half marathon, go sky diving, or some other incredibly impressive activity. But I’ve had a long week , I ran ten miles yesterday, and I’m very tired.  I finished my REDJanuary with seated exercises for seniors. If you want toContinue reading “The Big Finale – Seated Exercises for Seniors”
