28/07/22 – Private swim

I think this is my happy place… A private 20 metre swimming pool just for me and Nic! We were actually just a bit lucky to get this as we happened to be the only ones to book. I ended up forgetting my goggles so instead we just messed around by racing each other andContinue reading “28/07/22 – Private swim”

27/07/22 – After work sea swim!

After work today we jetted off to the beach for a lovely post work swim. The sea was much colder than I expected it to be, especially after last week’s hot hot hot weather. But we both made it in and had a “nice” time doing so. It’s such a great novelty to be ableContinue reading “27/07/22 – After work sea swim!”

16/07/22 – River swimming

Today was a lovely day hanging out with my mum, sister and her family. We went to the river and my brother in law and I saw all the way back to the Cardiff whilst everyone else walked. It was really fun to hang out with everyone and I was so happy to be backContinue reading “16/07/22 – River swimming”

15/07/22 – Cycling in the sun

This happy chappy is back cycling again, for the first time since having covid! It was so wonderful to be back on two wheels. I cycled into town to have dinner with the fantastic Alyx, then cycled home on a detour to get some extra miles in. Only 9 miles in total but it wasContinue reading “15/07/22 – Cycling in the sun”

25/06/22 – Long ride day!

I went out on a lovely long bike ride today. I cycled 38 miles, my longest ride this year. I really enjoyed myself too! I went to Hampton Court Palace, then along the river to Battersea Park and finally home. I’m definitely going to go on some more long rides this summer. My goal isContinue reading “25/06/22 – Long ride day!”

22/06/22 – Ten mile evening walk!

After work, our plan was to walk 4.5 miles to Addington Hills to have a little picnic for dinner and then get the bus back. All went to plan until we just ended up walking, and walking, and walking! In the end we were having such a nice time we decided to just keep goingContinue reading “22/06/22 – Ten mile evening walk!”

18/06/22 – Morning at the pool

Mum and I went to Tooting Lido this morning. I did a good 1km swim workout, and then we played around for a bit but mostly chatted by the poolside in the sunshine (and some rain!). It was a really lovely way to spend a Saturday. After swimming we met up with Nic for lunchContinue reading “18/06/22 – Morning at the pool”

17/06/22 – Second run to work!

I managed to do it again! I ran the 9 miles to work and didn’t end up as a mere puddle at the end (close though!). I took this lovely photo at 8 miles in, crossing over London Bridge. After work I went for a couple of cheeky halfs with mum in the pub, andContinue reading “17/06/22 – Second run to work!”

14/06/22 – Sunny Cycle

I’m absolutely loving how much I’m managing to be active recently. Today I cycled into the office and loved every second of it! Surprisingly my average speed was faster on the way home despite it being hillier. I just went for it and really enjoyed myself. I took this photo on the way in asContinue reading “14/06/22 – Sunny Cycle”

11/06/22 – Ten mile walk!

Today we walked a total of 13 miles! Ten of which were to Buckingham Palace from home! Nic and I set off this morning to walk to town, something we’ve had on the bucket list since we lived in the old house. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for it. Sunshine with a slight breeze,Continue reading “11/06/22 – Ten mile walk!”
