5 minutes, 5 (awkward) questions

question2So once a month I would like to feature a fitness blogger, reader, or whoever wants to take part on my 5 minutes, 5 (awkward) questions slot. It will feature a short bio and the same quick fire questions every month. I’m hoping some of the answers will be really unique and interesting! It should be a fun way of finding out more about each other and also might even introduce you to some new cool people!

So here are my answers:


What type of exercise/sport are you not good at?

I am rubbish at cycling – they say you never forget how to ride a bike, but I beg to differ as I suck. Three years ago I bought a mountain bike and after trying to get on the thing and falling off several times and a scary down hill bike ride, I haven’t used it since! I would love to do a triathlon though one day so I really need to get my bike riding sh*t together!

What do you do when you have a bad running day?

I usually throw a hissy fit (I have a bad temper), but then once I’ve calmed down I try to put it down to just being a bad day and pick myself up and try again the next day.

What does your partner think about your running? 

He runs a bit, but I think he thinks I am bonkers for entering as many races as I do and for even contemplating running beyond 8 miles. He is very supportive though and attends all my races as a spectator, which is lovely.

What’s your guilty diet-/exercise-related pleasure?

I alluded to this yesterday, but I love to exercise (usually on the bike or hand weights/core) whilst tuning in to some sort of diet programme, particularly ‘Secret Eaters‘ or ‘Supersize vs Superskinny‘ – I find it a great motivator!

What’s your usual excuse for avoiding exercising?

‘I’m too exhausted’, especially if I come in late from a long day at work!

  1. I live in the Rocky mountains and people here go nuts for mountain biking… I’ll stick to my little townie thank you very much! Maybe you need to start with “easier” biking? I’d be up for the questions! I love the idea!
