Footnotes for February

Footnotes for February

A few things that have caught my eye this month.

Food

Go on Alpro yogurts

I’ve still not found the Koko yogurts that I mentioned last month but I have found these new Alpro Go On soya yogurts. It’s an alternative to strained yogurt so it’s much thicker than their big pots and has fruit at the bottom. So far I have tried the mango one and it was rather tasty.

It’s nice to have some new varieties to try.

Blogs

A couple of posts that I enjoyed reading this month.

Alina from Vegan Runner Eats on 10 reasons she will always be vegan (and I agree with a lot of them!)

Meranda from Fairytales and Fitness shares the way her physical therapist showed her how to tie her shoelaces. I’ll be trying this out when I’m back running again, especially as I’ve been told I need a more supportive trainer.

Deborah from Confessions of a Mother Runner wrote a nice two part piece on ageless running which can be read here and here.

Television

We entered the 21st century this month and got a new TV which is connected to the internet and comes with Netflix. A very dangerous thing, given that I’m injured and it’s cold outside. So I’ve been watching new series, old series and starting off series from the beginning that I’ve only watched from halfway through before, including Parks and Recreation, Downton Abbey and Orange is the New Black.

Radio

The second part of the Food Programme mini series on food and running was broadcast this month. It has an interview with Scott Jurek and can be listened to online via the BBC website. I believe part one is still available if you missed it.

Did you try anything new in February?

Do you have any Netflix recommendations?

Botany Town Centre Summer fun run and walk

Botany Town Centre Summer fun run and walk

My mum is currently in New Zealand visiting family and when she heard about the local Botany Town Centre Summer Fun Run she thought she might as well take part. As I’ve never run outside the UK before I asked her write a review. So take it away Anne…. Botany Town Centre Summer fun run…

Why you should join a running club

Why you should join a running club

Regular readers will know I like my running clubs. So much so that I’m a member of two and started a running club at work. However, I know there are people who just aren’t sure about joining one. So here are my reasons why you should and what you should look for in a club….
