RUNDAY MONDAY- I’m in tears!

I know it isn't Monday yet, but I couldn't pass by without sharing something as incredible as this. Every time I was in rotation at the Orthopedic OR, I remember how a the whole "macho- butcher-bunch" would have a good laugh at my "little" self.  A particularly pleasant 6 feet 3 gentleman would "shield" me...

Runday Monday- Ramadan fitness.

Here goes. Is it possible to fit in a workout whilst fasting during the day, and juggling everything else a working mother has to do during such a month? Shall give it a go, I suppose.

Runday Monday- Limbering up again!

STRETCHES. I love 'em. There are certain I do before my run (after a light warm- up course) and several I like to do after. Loved the stretch-time at dance class. And on the sporadic gym trips the best part was the stretching. Oh yeah! I also venture into yoga occasionally and I guess everyone... Continue Reading →
