At the weekend, I paced a couple of the girls I mentor through the Hackney Half Marathon. It became about so much more than pacing. What’s funny about being a mentor is that you often learn more from those you mentor than you could ever teach them. Once again, running turns into a metaphor for life! Check out my post about what I learned in the race over on my Spikes & Heels site.

I’m on the record as being generally ‘meh’ about Yoga. Pilates, love it. Yoga? Meh. I tried it a couple of times and it just didn’t take. It was too slow, not challenging enough, the instructors were uninspiring – for whatever reason, I didn’t find the right fit. I plowed on with various other exercise, did lots of Pilates and plenty of stretching at home. But every time I mentioned my blase attitude towards Yoga, Yoga fanatics would tell me Bikram would turn it all around for me. I was skeptical. All that slow movement and breathing coupled with an intensely hot room you say? Not exactly appealing. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a go.

So, last night I was just hangin’ around…boom boom! In my spare time, I like to do nutso things, like try out Anti-Gravity Yoga. Check out my review on my other site, Spikes and Heels. And definitely, if you ever get the chance, give it a go.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ve probably noticed me alluding to a little project I’ve been working on for the past few months. Finally, I am ready to reveal it! Today sees the launch of Spikes and Heels, my new fitness site for badass women. I’m really excited about it and I hope you all will be too.
