Lisa’s Journey

Lisa’s Journey, Week 12: Heads, shoulders, KNEES and toes…

I’m going to put myself out on a limb and say… most,  if not all people who run, will probably experience knee pain (of some description)…  It’s kinda unavoidable, given the knee joint is the largest in the body, doing…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 11: Challenge Accepted!

Argh… Ok, so who’s sped up time?  It seems I just finish a blog and vow to have the next in on time and then it’s already Friday! Now it’s Saturday and I’m already late, but as my favourite saying…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 10: Trust And To Believe In One’s Self…

You have to trust in the process and have the confidence that you can and will achieve your goals! This was too big of a heading, but this is what I have come to learn over that last couple of…

Lisa’s Journey Week 9: Be Stronger than your Excuses!

Wooohooo!!! The new week brought with it some new hope! I feel like my body has accepted this ‘thing’ I’ve forced upon it, and I’ve moved into a new phase. After ‘Week 8’, where everything felt all too hard, this…

Lisa’s Journey Week 6: Roll, roll, roll your legs…

Foam rollers. They seem like a harmless pieces of equipment to help ease muscle tightness, but don’t be fooled! These things are nothing short of pure evil in disguise!! Over a year ago – that’s how long ago I brought…

Lisa’s Journey Week 5: Underneath it all, tights, bras, buffs and stuff…

I waited out the frost this morning like a whimp.  Too cold for me. As things started to thaw I headed off thinking I’d nailed it – a short run.  The sun was shining, my undies were sitting in the…

Lisa’s Journey Week 4: I’m on the road again… (you can sing it if you like)!!!

Only a week on from my last blog (I’m suppose to have it into Ray on Friday’s, whoops it’s Monday), but I am making progress!! I’ve broken through the “I can’t run on the road” mental barrier this week.  My…
