Are you thinking of climbing Snowdon for the very first time? It’s an achievable goal, but it’s no walk in the park, so read on before you start making your plans!
A few months ago I went on a big walk with my friend Laura, who said that she really wanted to climb Snowdon. “Well, let’s set a date then!”, I said, and thought absolutely no more of it. Mere days later there was a group chat, a date, and a beautiful cottage booked in the Welsh valleys, ready for a gang of girls to climb Mount Snowdon.
If the idea of throwing weird objects around and hitting heavy stuff with other heavy stuff piques your interest, then read on – I may just have the activity for you…
My Squatbot Squad events soft-launched in June with an aerial yoga session and launched fully last week with a big bang with a beginners’ strongman session, coached by the incredible Laura Hoggins of Biceps & Bronzer fame. I’ve done a bit of strongman before and thought I knew my stuff, but I learned so much about technique from Laura that I wanted to share more with you here!
Just over a year ago I hiked the Camino de Santiago, and I wrote about what you should know plus what I learned doing it. I covered the walking, the recovery, and the friendships along the way – but what I didn’t talk about was what I truly learned and how the trip inspired me.
I spent the week with a group of incredibly inspiring people who were all living their own dreams and doing their own thing, and smashing it hard – and it made me think, why not me?
This past weekend I spent a brilliant few days in Ibiza Town, and although this wasn’t my first visit to the island it was my first visit eating a mainly plant-based diet so was an awesome opportunity to eat my way through all the vegan food in the city.
Everywhere has at least one decent vegan option (as in, not just a plate of chips!) and almost everywhere has soya milk, too, but I did my research and found the best places for vegan, plant-based food in Ibiza Town. I’d say it was a tough job but it really wasn’t – it was delicious! Read on to find out my favourite vegan restaurants for every meal.
Picture the scene: it’s 2003. You’re in the pinkest teenagers’ bedroom you’ve ever seen (seriously, there are pink walls, a pink carpet, and pink bedlinen), the only colour variation being the bright yellow TV/VHS combination, upon which a crackly yoga class is playing. View Post
Over the last weekend of May I cycled 100km from Windsor to London and back again, overnight, through one of the biggest storms I’ve ever known, all without training.
Can you cycle 100km without training? If you’re just here for the clickbait title, then yes, it’s possible. If you’re here to hear more about Women V Cancer Ride The Night 2018, then read on to hear about every stage of the journey, and the caveat to that initial sweeping statement!
Is your workout helping you chill out… Or is it making you more stressed? With so many of us turning to fitness to help burn off day-to-day annoyances or even trying to alleviate chronic stress, I wondered whether these tough workouts were helping us reduce stress in the long-term or whether the cortisol released during high-intensity training was actually making us worse.
