So 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!
