My Current Fitness Goals


The Adventures of a Kathlete

I am never more in love with slipping my trainers on than when I’m training for an event. At the end of the month I’ll be running the Edinburgh Half Marathon and the run up (yeah, you heard me) to it has made me more pumped than ever to reach new goals. Training for something […]

My Three Favourite Workout Classes


The Adventures of a Kathlete

As someone who works wacky hours, I struggle to find the time to attend workout classes. As someone who adores workout classes, this can be pretty frustrating.

How to Wake up Early to Workout


The Adventures of a Kathlete

Although I used to prefer working out in the afternoon or evening, I now like starting the day by upping my heart rate. Recently, however, I’ve been trying to get into the habit of waking up in the early hours to workout. It’s something I find far more natural in the warmer months but something […]

Five Quick Benefits of Swimming


The Adventures of a Kathlete

Slicing my arms through the inviting water at my gym is my favourite way to start a day. I rejoined my gym at home since moving back from university and decided to bite the bullet and buy an all-inclusive membership, swimming pool and all. As much as I adore running, no day feels more accomplished […]
