Weekend Friday Favourites

Nothing all week then, 2 posts in 1 day. Let’s just say someone made time to do something else she loves other than working out and sorting out that pile of books that’s been building up. 

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Once again I’m left on a Sunday wondering where the week went. It went by with its usual workouts, runs, cleaning up after the cats (do all male species miss aim peeing?), catching up with friends and working on a better routine. I’ve identified where non productive time goes vs chores, Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

SMART, Energy And Decluttering

I don’t know about you, but as soon as the Christmas presents have been opened I’m in, I wanna sort out mode. Major sort out mode! It often doesn’t happen for a few days. I prefer to have a morning free to sort out. I’m not very good at doing chores in the evening. That’s my excuse. More on that later.

This time of year inbetween Christmas and the New Year has most of us reflecting on the past year and thinking about the next. I don’t believe in New Year resolutions. One day is as good as the next to start on something new (or the 3rd day after a new moon according to the lunar cycle). There’s never a right time, sometimes you just have to start.

Maori Race Can Zam Santa Coloma

I completed my 3rd obstacle race this year back in November! The Maori Race. A 7km, 30 obstacle race in a more urban setting. I ran my first Maori Race back in June. It wasn’t my intention to join a team. I met 2 other girls on the course and we teamed up for the remainder. None of us knew our names until afterwards! It was great working as team. Less burpees and help with the more tricky obstacles. On reflection, I’m not sure if I want to run as a team again. I’m happy to help others along the course and appreciate the help back (especially with those walls!), I just like the challenge it gives me individually.

As with every race you take away what you need to work on. My last one was the walls. I’ve been working on Continue reading “Maori Race Can Zam Santa Coloma”

Do Something Everyday That Scares You

Happy Summer!

The season I’ve been waiting for is here! Carefree days of less layers, the early morning buzz of a hot day, hazy afternoons, peaches, for now still longish days, people a little happier and of course beach season! 

The heat arrived last week. No warning of a few in-between days, it’s like someone switched up the thermostat. Which was perfect as this past weekend was kinda action packed with an afternoon at PortAventura World Caribe Aquatic Park and Sunday’s Maori Race’s 7km obstacle run through shaded woods. Continue reading “Do Something Everyday That Scares You”

Spartan Super Recap And Catch Up

Happy June!

This past weekend I completed my 3rd Spartan Race! The Super a 13-15km obstacle race, which once again left me contemplating if to run the Beast, Spartan’s 1/2 marathon again. 

I wasn’t sure if going to run. Spartan Race Espana weren’t putting on buses from Barcelona city centre as they have done in previous years and with no car or knowing Continue reading “Spartan Super Recap And Catch Up”
