Fuel me…

Priorities change when you have children... and most recently I’ve realised that with 2 boys (3 if you include the happy runner) in the house time is something I run short on. Therefore sitting in peace to eat a meal is something of the past. What’s more given I’m still breastfeeding I need food fast, …

London: the 6th and final

I’m kind of hoping this [post] is just like friendships I have with my high school girl friends… we pick up just where we left off despite the distance and in this case the time that has past. So it’s been little while… enough time that there is now three of us, which has absorbed …

city2surf: 5 race nutrition must do’s

It's one of the most iconic races you can run when it comes to organised fun runs in Australia. So much so you can't have a complete set of race medals until you have one from this one! But in saying that Sydney's City 2 Surf is also a course you need to respect, 14km …

Running in the Rain & Recovery Porridge

It's the first of June and Im not sure I'm ready to say the 'W' word yet. But it does feel like it’s creeping in, well to me anyway, and I know most people think my thermostat is faulty. Anyway yesterday was the first rainy run I’ve done in a while. I don’t mind running …

5 reasons to reunite with pasta

It’s true… I think the common dietary staple that’s a prominent member of a major food group in Australia should be suing for defamation of character. Pasta’s had a hard time of it over the past decade or so. Mr Atkins (rest his soul) has a lot to answer for. While there was a short …

Almond Bites with a Citrus Hint

These are even more delicious than I thought they'd be… super nutty with a hint of citrus. And with less than 330kJ (that's less than 80cal for those still using calories) you can have two with your cuppa. Almonds are a favourite snack of mine, I especially love dry roasted almonds as the roasting brings …

Pre-Race Nutrition: Nike She Runs

I think I could count on one hand the number of night time runs I’ve completed! I’m definitely an early bird when it comes to training which also means I’ve mastered my morning pre-training snack. However with the Nike She Runs 10km on tonight I’ll need to put a little more thought into it. Seeing …

Carbs & Protein: A Runners Recovery

While maybe not everyones perfect start to a long weekend, we kicked ours off with an 18km run through the city. To be honest witnessing this city awaken as you run through the streets which are usually hustling and bustling puts that extra kick in your step, or stride I should say. This was a …

Marble-ous Easter Eggs

It's not only because they're made of chocolate that I love Easter eggs, but also because they come in pretty packages. So I thought I might try and decorate my own eggs (the high protein variety). I'm not really known for my 'Susie Homemaker' skills but I have to say I'm pretty chuffed with the …

Maroubra Saturdays

Saturdays are supposed to be quite indulgent, aren't they? Mine are usually filled with the things I love. Here's my Maroubra Saturday. 6:30am - 16km city run with a couple of my running group gals 8:30am - recovery brekkie… flavoured milk with pancakes (of course) or smashed avocado on sour dough bread with a little …
