17/01/21 – Cycle and an egg!

Today’s weather was too good to miss out on so I hoped on my bike for a trip via Central London! I stopped off at tower Bridge to eat my first creme egg of the season then headed back home again. It was wonderful to get out into the sunshine and see London for theContinue reading “17/01/21 – Cycle and an egg!”

07/01/21 – Snowy cycling!

I finally got out on my bike this morning before work! I’m so so pleased that I did. It snowed whilst I was cycling and I had the biggest grin on my face (under all my layers!) I did a ten mile loop around our area. I’m hoping to up that over the next fewContinue reading “07/01/21 – Snowy cycling!”

20/12/20 – Cycling to de-stress

Life is quite hard right now, but I take solice in this blog as I know soon enough I’ll look back and this will all be harmless memories. It’s so hard having all our Christmas plans change last minute. All we can do is try to take less focus on Christmas day as an eventContinue reading “20/12/20 – Cycling to de-stress”

18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run

Started off today with a 8km run that I only mildly had to drag myself out of bed for this morning. I’m enjoying it a lot more recently, now that I’m running for the fun of running, rather than being so competitive with myself and others. I still have a while to go yet, butContinue reading “18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run”

04/11/20 – Birds and swing

My first run since I fell last week! It was great. I headed out first thing so it was quite chilly but the sun was shining and it felt glorious being outside in the early hours. Half way through my run I stopped to swing on the rope swing, pausing my audio book to takeContinue reading “04/11/20 – Birds and swing”

28/10/20 – An abrupt end!

I went for a run after work today. Just before I reached 8km I slipped and fell, ripping a hole in my favourite running leggings (and my favourite knee…)! My knee was so sore that Nic drove down to pick me up as I was still 2km from home. I spent the rest of theContinue reading “28/10/20 – An abrupt end!”

20/10/20 – Blowing off steam

(Backdated post as I forgot to press publish on this five days ago!) After a very stressful day at work I decided to go on an evening run to blow off some steam after work. The sun was just setting as I pelted up the hill near our house and it really helped to calmContinue reading “20/10/20 – Blowing off steam”

17/10/20 – Practicing skating

The weather today was a picture perfect autumnal day. Jumper weather, crispy leaves and sunshine, well no rain at least. We walked to the park to practice skating more! I’m slowly improving at stopping, bit by bit I seem to be getting there, and becoming more confident. I also got a load of reading doneContinue reading “17/10/20 – Practicing skating”

12/10/20 – Skating lunchtime!

We went out skating in the rain this lunchtime! Nic razed around doing cool tricks like this manual whilst I attempted at learning how to stop on a hill (an important skill I have yet to pick up…). This evening I sewed a zipper pouch which I’m super proud of! I’m slowing remembering my sewingContinue reading “12/10/20 – Skating lunchtime!”

07/10/20 – Happy hill training

Second run of the week! I’m still on the path of gaining back my love for running and this morning was another bound forward towards that goal. I went on a 4k run, 1k of which was up a 50 meter climb (10%!). I didn’t care about my time, I just kept ploughing up theContinue reading “07/10/20 – Happy hill training”
