10/06/22 – Back swimming!

I did it! I got up at 6.10am and ran to the pool, swam 1km and then ran another 2 miles. It made me feel so much better today. I’m also aching from my workout which is a feeling I really enjoy as I know I did a good job. I’ve just been feeling aContinue reading “10/06/22 – Back swimming!”

09/06/22 – Cheer up buttercup

Still feeling a bit blah today so I’ve decided to take some action to get out of it. After work I got back to my weight lifting! It was super tough but I felt good for getting it done. Then after dinner Nic and I went for a 45 min walk around the neighborhood, andContinue reading “09/06/22 – Cheer up buttercup”

06/06/22 – Cycling The Greenway

Despite being quite hungover from last night’s antics the plan today was to cycle The Greenway and we decided to stick to that plan! Thankfully it helped get over our hangovers rather than hindering and were soon having a fantastic time. The views were incredible and the weather ideal. It was probably my favourite dayContinue reading “06/06/22 – Cycling The Greenway”

04/06/22 – We climbed it!

And it was a proper slog. By far the hardest hike I’ve ever done, and a proper hike at that! 750m of elevation in only about 2.5 miles. The photo is from about two thirds up before the final climb. We were shattered by the end, scrabbling up to the top trying not to slip.Continue reading “04/06/22 – We climbed it!”

29/05/22 – Next trip prep!

And just like that we’re prepping for our next trip which is Friday! We’re off to Ireland for our friends 40th. We picked up hiking boots to finally indulge in all the recent walking we’ve been doing. We now have this week’s lunch and evening walks to break them in before our trip! It’s lovelyContinue reading “29/05/22 – Next trip prep!”

17/05/22 – Morning run sunshine

Last run before my holiday! Decided to give myself (mostly my knees) a bit of a break so that’s me done for the next week and a bit. But it was a lovely run to finish off with! 5km in 28 and a half minutes. Pretty pleased with that, I’m definitely getting faster even ifContinue reading “17/05/22 – Morning run sunshine”

08/05/22 – First half marathon of the year!

I’m feeling very pleased with this run today. It was my first half marathon of the year. I attempted the same run I did a few weeks ago where I really struggled. This time though I had a lot more water, lighter clothes and gels! It felt a lot easier so by the time IContinue reading “08/05/22 – First half marathon of the year!”

30/04/22 – Wild swim time!

I’ve had a really lovely first day of camping! We went to a gin tour and tasting, then for an excellent pub lunch and on to wild swimming which was bloody freeeeeeeezing, but still super fun. Last night was three degrees and we woke up with frost on the tent so we’re happy today isContinue reading “30/04/22 – Wild swim time!”
