I did it! I absolutely smashed my morning run, 6km in 31mins. I felt so much better than I have for ages. Then… later on today I suddenly got super down again. I’m sure it’ll pass but I spent the rest of the day with a mad fast heart rate trying hard to focus onContinue reading “04/09/20 – Ups and downs”
I was asked recently on here by a lovely follower how I keep active all the time. Right now I just cannot be bothered! So tonight I’ve actioned my final trick, laying out all my clothes and having an early night. Right now I’m dying to go for a run, but come 7am it mightContinue reading “03/09/20 – Accountability”
It’s finally cool enough to have a bath! I went through a phase of having full cold tap on showers recently, I was enjoying them (as much as you can enjoy a freezing shower) and felt very bad ass being able to do it, but I must admit I really enjoyed my warm bath afterContinue reading “31/08/20 – Bubbly bath to calm down”
The water is getting colder! I was quite tired this morning so just did 700m in a load of different strokes… Including trying to swim a length entirely underwater. Essentially just fannying about by myself until it was time to run back home again… Still, pizza for dinner tonight!
Quite tired today after another run, swim, run morning. Think I might be tuckering myself out so I’m in bed early tonight. Still, it was another successful pre work workout!
I had some buddies for today’s swim! Nic and I were meant to cycle but a last minute flat tire meant we got a taxi to Beckenham Lake intead. The lake was lovely with these two whilst the rest held down the fort.
This morning I set off at 6.20 to run 5.8km to Tooting Bec Lido, I then swam 1.2km then ran back! For the first time in a while I felt like myself again and it was so much fun. I listened to my audio book all the way there and back and even got aContinue reading “21/08/20 – Run swim run!”
Finally managed to go for a swim in Beckenham Place Park Lake today! It was a very calming 7am swim, with a quiet cycle to get there. There’s always something lovely about swimming alongside ducks and coots in the morning.
Today I ran 6 miles, then cycled to Brockwell Lido, swam 800m, got heartbroken by the chip shop being closed, and finally cycled home again… It’s been a busy day! Nic came along for the 9 miles of cycling and the swim! It’s been lush, but I’m ready for my beddy.
Set out at 8am today only for it to be 24 degrees already on my run! I keep trying to see it as good training but man is it rough at the time… The house reached 29 degrees and outside got to 37! Madness, too hot for this Stepho.
