One week is lost i’m afraid – there was some running in that, but sadly running is back down to irregular occurance due to reaccurance of the dreaded tendonitis- unbelievably annoying. I could dwell on it, but I have more exciting news so I wont..

I found a bike! I finally came to the conclusion that all bikes of a certain price will be of a certain spec, unless you happned to find an amazing second hand deal, which is hard if you want a bike that fits. So – I went for it, splashed out and got myself a beautiful Specialised Dolce Elite – nice tiagra gears, 9 speed (which i’m told I can upgrade for £30 in a few months when I get an itchy bank balance 😉 ), totally light weight and a joy to ride. I’ve been whizzing around on it excessively and constantly – and loving every second! Planning on starting out on time trials soon – exciting times!

I am an NCTJ qualified journalist and copywriter with a year’s worth of experience as a local hack, and just under two years’ of experience working in the marketing department for a highstreet retailer. I currently work at Cycling Weekly, previous to this I was the editor at Total Women's Cycling. I do a little freelance writing alongside my job, and have written for Runner’s World, Triathlete’s World, Sussex Sport, Basingstoke Gazette newspaper, the Brighton Argus, Steve Hart Photography and 2LK Design. I blog to record the activities in my life which I don’t want to forget when I’m old and wrinkly (let’s hope the internet never melts down – but it seems safer than a notebook) – to let old friends and family know what I’m up to, and because I enjoy playing with words. I’m always looking for new projects – and you can email me should you ever need someone with an energetic passion for word doodling.
