Whilst chatting to a friend the other day, they made the most bizarre comment. Read more here! Some Call It Luck Continue reading Some Call It Luck
I’ve gone all fancy and got my own webpages on the eMoov website. Click here to read what I will be eating on the boat. What Will You Eat On The Boat? All my rowing adventures will now be documented at emoov.co.uk/LTFactor Enjoy xxxx Continue reading What Will I Eat On The Boat?
11/05/17 Oh my goodness. I have been meaning to write this post for months. Perhaps even years. I don’t think I have ever grabbed my laptop quicker than I just did to write this post. I was mindlessly (embarrassed to say that) scrolling though Facebook and saw this (picture below). I recognised it instantly – Raynaud’s phenomenon. I am no doctor, neither am I a nutritionist … Continue reading Curing Raynaud’s Phenomenon
09/05/17 On Saturday, I joined an indoor rowing team, Sub 7, to set a new World record for 100km. We were a small mixed team, lightweight, over 30s. Rowing for 20 strokes at max effort and then having 4.5 minutes rest for 5.5 hours was tougher than I thought. As was the prep and transitions. Watch my video below to see how it went. We rowed … Continue reading Concept2 100km World Record
An egg breakfast in the morning is a great way to start your day, boost your metabolism and get a strong and lean body. (check out one of my previous posts about why eggs are king in the morning). These delicious little dollops of joy can be cooked ahead of time, making them ideal if you’re in a rush and want a healthy meal or snack. … Continue reading Breakfast Egg Muffins Recipe
Wed 03/05/17 I’m struggling to take it all in myself really. Could it be that I am finally feeling normal again? I haven’t felt like this in months! In fact, I forgot what it felt like. There was a part of me that was worried that I might never feel like this again. I genuinely thought that the amount of stress and pressure I had … Continue reading Could It Be??? I Am Back???
20/04/17 The (Not So) Secret Life of a Fundraiser…… After my last post, I figured it was only fair to deliver you a slightly more upbeat running commentary of my fundraising antics. Yesterday I secured a major sponsor! I am delighted to announce that eMoov will be the Lead Sponsor for my 1,800 mile rowing challenge around Great Britain! It hasn’t really sunk it yet. Have … Continue reading It Finally Happened!!!
Well….. that’s step 1 done…… At least I got out of bed after 36 hours. In that time I didn’t open the curtains (despite it being a wonderful sunny Good Friday), I didn’t eat, I barely drank anything, cried most of the time, threw in some sleep for good measure, didn’t shower or brush my teeth. I’m still in the same clothes I was wearing 3 days … Continue reading The Secret Life of a Fundraiser
Hello! Welcome to part 3 of the 7 Woman 7 Challenges Tough Girl Podcast. Minutes before this interview, I was busy having a battle with myself….. “Shall I pretend everything is ok and be positive?” or “shall I tell the truth and say that I am having a hard time with fundraising?” After an extremely busy day (video diary below) it seemed that the latter happened. I’ve … Continue reading Tough Girl Podcast Part 3
28/03/17 Here’s round 2 of me delving into my life on the radio. This one didn’t feel like I was being thrown in at the deep end as much as the last. The guys from Phoenix FM were celebrating their 10th birthday and hosting the show on the road, which was fascinating to see. A few bits of technology whizzed their voices and music across to 40,000 people in Essex … Continue reading Radio Interview on Phoenix FM
