Janathon ’19 day 12: weights

I’m feeling a lot better today, so thought I’d try out some weights. I went for a bit of a classic kind of programme: squats, bench press, bent-over row, tricep dips.

Juneathon day 19: circuits, and cockapoo preparation!

After a busy day at work, what’s better than to settle down to … an hour of high-intensity intervals with Wild Training?! It was hot out there in Hervines Park, and I was slightly at sixes and sevens when I arrived, as my 9yo daughter had her brownie meeting in the same park, throwing our […]
