Juggling real life, running and everything inbetween

It’s no secret that my life is always super busy (as it is for a lot of people)! For me, a standard day can start at 6am, consist of freelance work, normal work, training and at the moment Project Awesome twice a week. If you’ve not been along to one of our Thursday sessions at Lululemon WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?

Fiji and the sing a Disney song, epiphany moment

So I may have mentioned it once or twice (or maybe a million times) that recently I went to Fiji and married my favourite person, Jamie, and now we are the awesome Mr and Mrs Fraser-Davidson. Needless to say the whole experience was INCREDIBLE (bar the BA flight issues, screw you BA). Fiji is an incredible place, the people were…

Check myself before I wreck myself

First things first, if ANYONE even mutters the “I told you so” phrase they will be met with a sharp “get fucked” and be on a hug ban for at least 24hrs (that includes you Jamie).   I might have mentioned that I like running and training, A LOT. I also have a full-time job, have just moved flat, am…

8 weeks to get ready for my biggest challenge yet

When I signed up for Rat Race Dirty Weekend, I had at least a 10 months training plan in mind. It was going to be badassly awesome and put into practice all the things I have learnt about running over the past couple of years. But yeah, sometimes things don’t go to plan. Fast forward 8 months. I had just…

The Gathering: Dusk till Dark. R.E.S.P.E.C.T

Last night was a big night. After 7 months of injuries and an operation in January, I was taking part in my first race of 2017. I’d booked The Gathering: Dusk till Dark as a last minute treat, deciding I couldn’t handle spectating at yet another race. (FYI race jealousy is a thing!). At 7-8k of trails and only £20,…

Pilates Festival Scotland

Bathed in the morning sun (and little bit scared of my navigational skills), I set off yesterday morning to Dunblane for the Pilates Festival Scotland. I had chatted away to the guys at a free Lululemon event and they kindly invited me along to the day. FYI Jordan- I’m still waiting to see you at Project Awesome one morning! First…

Beyonce strutting at the Village Gym Edinburgh

Last month the Village gym in Edinburgh were super kind and gave me a free 1 month pass to try out all their facilities. Bear in mind I normally HATE gyms. I know it works for some people, however personally I’ve never understood why you would run on a machine indoors, rather than frolic outside. However this time, it was…

The killer question- why I’m not running Mighty Deerstalker

The Mighty Deerstalker – 10miles of gruelling hills, the perfect warm-up for Dirty Weekend. Not to mention a party atmosphere and the UK’s biggest night race. And I’m not running it. Even though I have been totally pumped about this race, it’s one that’s just not meant to be. Running injuries and my operation in January have meant that I only…

Badass pancakes: they count as carb loading, right?

I love pancakes. Like next level, ready to commit and build a life together love them. This means pancake day is a big day in my calendar. In years gone by nutella, sugar and lemon featured heavily in the day of pancake worship. But that would leave the current Abby with the jittery sugar shakes (we’ve all been there, I ate…
