08/01/23 – Six muddy miles

This is a really accurate photo to sum up today. Nic and I went on a really really lovely but muddy six mile walk around Woldingham Circular. It was a lush day out just nattering away the whole time, and we were exceptionally lucky with the weather. It rained a bit but not too bad, however as soon as we got back to the car it absolutely poured down! This whole weekend I’ve been very lucky with the weather!

07/01/23 – 10 miles down!

Today Corinne and I did section one and two of the Capital Ring walk! We’ve decided to complete the entire 78mile loop over this year. It was a really great day, and we were exceptionally lucky with the weather as it chucked it down as soon as we finished walking. Onto the next sections in a few weeks time!

06/01/23 – Bingo night out

The intention this evening was to have a curry and play some bingo with Andy and Georgie, however unfortunately bingo shut at 9pm due to low numbers. So… we went to the pub and chatted instead! It was a really fun evening and has already made the weekend feel so long which is exactly what I need.

05/01/23 – Just keep swimming

I’m still really enjoying my swimming. This morning I swam with these paddles to help increase my strength. My shoulders were on fire by the end of the 500m. I then did another 500m without them and it felt a lot easier but my hands seemed tiny compared to them!

I’m really enjoying keeping active this week but I’m also trying to get enough sleep, but possibly failing as I feel quite tired a lot of the time. I’ll get back into the swing of things soon enough I’m sure.

04/01/23 – A wee rest day

Nic went out for a run today but I had a day off from exercise! I have booked swimming though for tomorrow morning so I’m looking forward to that. Today was a bit better at work as I’m getting back into the swing of things, slowly but surely. I think I did a really good job at switching off this Christmas as I’m having a hell of a time switching back on again!

03/01/23 – Back to work run

Well, today was a bit of a slog. I think I’ve been having too nice of a time these last couple of weeks off work, which made today exceptionally hard. I really enjoy my job, but boy did I want to be anywhere else but at work today…

I did manage to fit in a lovely 5k sunrise run though before I got going! Mostly to prolong the inevitable…

02/01/23 – Wimbledon Walk

We went on a lovely walk with our friend Andy today. It felt so wonderful getting outside with the blue skies and shining sun. A brisk but beautiful day for a 7km walk with excellent company. This year I’m hoping to do a lot more outdoor activities whilst catching up with friends. Nothing beats a good walk and a natter, so it’s time to do it more often!

01/01/23 – A bit of balance!

Nic and I went on a 6km run this morning to see in the New Year! I really enjoyed myself and it was so great to get out of the house after squirrelling away for a couple days. However as life is all about balance, we then had chocolate fondue later in the evening… Everything in moderation, even moderation! Happy New Year’s everyone x
