Every Monday a group of amazing pacers lead a group of eager runners all around London. The pacers change and the runners change, and occasionally the time table changes and we run on a different day, but it’s always called Home Run. It’s something I always look forward to.

Barry’s West has arrived! After four years in London, the studio has finally opened their third studio in Queensway and last week I had the chance to try an exclusive Nike x Barry’s West class led by Mr PMA himself, Faisal.

For the uninitiated of you (like I was about a week ago) PMA = Positive Mental Attitude and as far as I am concerned this is as important as physical health. I have been lucky enough to train with Faisal before – he’s always encouraging, motivating, and has the best tunes! (Seriously, I was singing along for the whole class)

Hands up, I feel in love with Mad by Chloé Esposito when I first saw the cover. It’s so, so beautiful and really fits the story. Then I read the blurb…

‘There’s something you should know before we go any further: my heart is in the wrong place. Now don’t say I didn’t warn you…’

Perhaps that’s why nothing in Alvie’s life has ever gone right? Until now.

She can finally abandon her credit card debt – and her fruitless three-way relationship with Tinder and Twitter – when fate gives her the chance to steal her identical twin’s perfect life.

It’s just a shame Beth had to die to make Alvie’s dreams come true.

So begin seven days of sex, violence and unapologetic selfies – one wild week that sees Alvie break every rule in the book. She never did have much respect for boundaries.

It might be madness, but rules are meant to be broken. Right?

Meet Alvina Knightley: uncensored, unhinged, and unforgettable. And most definitely capital letters: AGFHDJFKGFKK this book was so much more than I was expecting and I absolutely loved it.

In early May I ran 10k with the Lady Garden, a gynaecological charity aiming to raise awareness for gynaecological cancers. They want women to stop being embarrassed about their bodies and start talking to people about any gynaecological concerns they might have.

This is the second year of Lady Garden and while I completely missed out on it last year, I made sure I could run this year. This year they also had two running distances – a 5k and a 10k. I signed up for the 10k. I am now quite comfortably running 5k distances again but 10k? The last time I ran a 10k was for the Winter Run when my goal was to finish and not be in too much pain. Now I wanted to run it in under an hour and to run it without stopping.

Olympic athlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson has created the Switch7 workout alongside Brita. At the end of April I headed to Finsbury Park to have a go at the workout and get my hands on the new BRITA fill&go Active, a squeezable sports bottle which filters whilst you drink. After a while the workouts which were once so exciting become boring. With Stitch7 Katarina has created a workout which challenges and improves your body in seven different ways – from gaining explosive power to hydration and recovery.

I’ve been at that place where workouts are boring and seemingly ineffective. I hate being there so was really excited to try Switch7. Click through below for the workout details and what I thought of it.
