It’s crazy to think that a year ago this March, we all retreated to our homes and watched our fitness spaces close for the foreseeable. So what has staying active during COVID-19 meant for me?
It isn’t easy to stay motivated when working out at home, but here are some tried and tested top tips, from me to you.
On my blog, I recently discussed how I’ve had a change in my running mindset which has encouraged me to run further and for longer during the last few months and for healthier reasons than the one that originally drove me. This positive step resulted in my entering of the Cardiff 10K on September 3, […]
I was recently approached by Sport Wales as they were looking for bloggers to contribute to their women and girls in sport campaign, Our Squad Cymru, to speak out about the importance of having women involved in sport.
