Leg Day: Edinburgh Half Marathon


The Adventures of a Kathlete

On Sunday I ran the Edinburgh Half Marathon and achieved a bright blue t-shirt, an Edinburgh skyline medal and an entirely frustrating personal best. More on that later, though. Aaron and I headed to the city centre at 7am (for an 8am start?!?!). We joined our pink wave, alongside our friend Jacob and his brother, […]

Pre Race Day Pasta


Kath's Kitchen

As a fan of carbohydrates and Italian cuisine, I am unsurprisingly a big believer in the power of pasta the day before event day. As I am running the Edinburgh half marathon tomorrow, I’ll later be cooking up a pasta storm in our little Airbnb with the boyfriend so we are 13.1 miles ready in […]

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. Classes tend to be an energetic, sociable and fun way to exercise. My gym membership is all-inclusive and my favourite way to get my money’s worth is through […]

Chunky Veg Chicken Sausage Risotto


Kath's Kitchen

Being a lover of all things carbs, I think it was inevitable that I was going to, one day, become risotto’s biggest fan. In the last month, it’s just about become all I can think about. As well as wondering what I’m going to do once Easter is over and Oreo Egg ‘n’ Spoons are […]

Review: My ASOS 4505 Leggings


The Adventures of a Kathlete

ASOS is my go-to site to order new workout gear from so, when they announced their very own fitness line (named ASOS 4505), you can imagine my excitement. Upon release, I headed straight over to ASOS to check out the range and struggled to add just the one item to my basket. I regretfully managed it […]

Snow Day Chicken Courgetti


Kath's Kitchen

Most of the nation is experiencing a snow day; most of us are regretting not stocking up with soup, milk and bread before the Beast from the East greeted the UK. Combined with the desire to not go to the shops and soak yet another pair of shoes and the hunger in my belly, I […]

Sweet Chilli Chicken Stir Fry


Kath's Kitchen

When Aaron I cook together, it’s almost guaranteed our finished product will be a carb-based, meaty and mediterranean veg kind of dish. Aaron’s signature dish is no exception. He is a PRO at making any kind of sweet chilli stir fry and we altered his recipe today to make our very own sweet chilli chicken […]

My Three Favourite Workout Leggings


The Adventures of a Kathlete

As someone with more than enough workout leggings to go to the gym every day for a week and wear a different pair to each visit, I think I qualify as a personal activewear shopper. Nothing─and I mean nothing─excites me more than a workout in a fresh new pair of leggings. So, what with being a 10/10 leggings […]
