NEED TO SWEAT? TRY THIS METCON WORKOUT

MetCon Workout

I’ve recently been feeling various niggles when running longer distances (slightly / very worrying with Paris being so close!) so I’ve been trying to switch up my workouts to vary the impact. I’ve been swimming as much as possible (although I’ve developed quite the chlorine allergy which is making life interesting), doing a fair bit of riding and we’re also in the process of turning our spare garage into a gym!

Hands down. Their pizza is a mixture of the freshest ingredients, the dough of dreams and possibly crack, their 60 hour fermentation process is clearly witchcraft… If I showed you just how much money we spent there last year you would probably have me committed.

5 WAYS TO BOSS WORKING FROM HOME

5 ways to boss working from home

Being your own boss and working from home is pretty much the dream, right? Especially when you’re used to hitting the snooze button five times, shoving half a soggy Weetabix in your mouth, slurping your coffee on the run and sprinting off the tube to be at your desk for 8:59 on the dot. But, whilst working from home beats working for ‘the man’, any day, (in my opinion) it’s not without its challenges.
