Wooo. I went OUTSIDE!


The pavements are now nearly clear where I am this week in Kent. The problem being that the bits that AREN’T clear are no longer snow, or even slush, but solid lumps of ice, so when you put your foot on one it’s like an ice cube.

Still, I survived 2 turns round the block, at a slightly slower pace, and it was goood to be outside.

I ran down the centre of the road a bit, as they are much clearer and they were quiet residential streets at 9:30 in the morning.

9:30am counts as an early morning run for me. I was quite impressed that I made it out that early. I am absolutely not a morning person.

With remaining Janathon days in single digits I’m feeling a little more positive about making it! I know it’s only a mile a day, but this month has been harder than I expected in many ways!

I am now signed up for the Trowse 10k in March, which will give me something to work toward when I get back into running properly in February. I still haven’t managed a 10k under an hour, so that’s my goal!


Tonight I am attempting to put together a meal from my parents cupboard. I have obsessively been eating biscuits most of the afternoon while doing some research into clean eating and fasting diets. Frankly I’ve lost some of my mojo foodwise these last couple of weeks, but like I said yesterday, I’ve always known I’m prone to comfort eating and it’s not something I’ve ever managed to find a good way of combating.

How do you deal with the urge to comfort eat?
