Slog Log – Larger than Life!

Monday : Was a school holiday… so, no school to scoot the kids too… and that also meant no run for us Momma’s! So I did a little sweat session at gym. Bumped into another mom I know and we had a fab yack! The kids enjoyed a bit of running around in the kiddies section...

In a pickle!

I have had enough!   As you may be aware I have been battling with tight calf muscles or a feeling of “too short” calves. I know it seems rather bazaar! And no, I don’t think I have totally lost my mind!   This morning as I was on the road, running even slower than...

Slog Log – Come on Weekend!

We seem to lead a busy life (who doesn’t?!?!), but it’s not normally SO jammed packed! Last weekend was extraordinary!   Connor had cricket practice on Saturday morning and Georgia had a party at the Muizenburg slides (happy kids), at 1:30 we joined some mates for a...

Slog Log – Welcome to my Pity Party

This was to be an “up” post. It was going to be light and breezy! I have been thinking about it the entire week… I felt so good on Monday! We had a good walk, Tuesday gym and Wednesday, I thought was a bit of a break through. Gym on Thursday and then today was to be a...
