Marathon fuelling experiments: Real sweets

As I look forward to, and start to train for, my first ever marathon this year, I am continuing my experiments in fuelling. I’ve never bothered fuelling (eating while running) for a half marathon, but a full marathon burns up well over a day’s calories. If I’m to make it across the line, I need to know what I can eat. I’ve already tried specialist energy foods, but they are quite expensive. I know a lot of people fuel with jelly...

Project 366 Weeks 22 & 23

I’m pleased to say that half-term was a better school holiday than we’ve had for a long time. Here’s our fortnight in pictures… Day 150 – Sunday 29th May – I’ve needed some new trainers for about three months now. Having finally persuaded myself that it’s OK to spend money on myself, I then struggled to find anything in a colour I liked in my size. And then I found these! Day 151 –...

Project 365 2015 Week 51

Day 348 – Monday 14th December – the tree is up and...

Project 365 2015 Week 42

Day 281 – Sunday 11th October – it’s not a great photo, but I went to Cheltenham Literature Festival in the evening to see Sue Perkins. She was very funny! Day 282 – Monday 12th October – the coldest walk to school so far this autumn. I love the way the mist hovers above the fields. Day 283 – Tuesday 13th October – not the most interesting of photos, but in my continued bid to recover from...

Project 365: Week 9

Week 9 of project 365 already and I’m getting into the swing of taking photos every day. I’ve realised that about 80% of my photos here are taken on my phone. The best camera you have is the one you have with you! The photos don’t tend to be beautiful, but they’re a genuine record of everything we get up to during the week. So this is what we’ve been doing this week! Day 54 – Sunday 23rd February...
