Iced Lemonade

When life give you lemons you make lemonade right?

The pyshio last week gave me 2 options for my psoas. At first it was to stop running for 2 weeks, but as the inflammation is ‘controlled’ I was permitted to run on either grass or sand. However I’m not allowed to run on any hard surfaces and am to walk to the grass/sand. I’m was sure I could work around that somehow making up little biathlons biking and running. 

That option for 1 week or more (please no more than 2 weeks, I have a race coming up!) has been taken out of my hands. Probably by the powers that be. The ones that look out me either decided we’ll make her not run as she won’t listen to the physio or were either watching Netflix, distracted, looking out for other beings in their care or just wanted a giggle. Long story short, I fell off my bike in a puddle.

August’s Here

I’m happy sad August’s here. Happy the heat’s set in, days are sunny, the sea’s warm enough to cool off in. Sad, after being away on holiday vacay, yes I got away only as the cats with their multiple medicine came too, I’ve really noticed the days getting shorter.

We stayed in Spain along the Costa Blanca where the sun rose a little later than Barcelona yet set later. Noting sunset’s time checking the weather app then cycling back at dusk, the sun now sets what seems like 30 minutes earlier than it did before going away. Continue reading “August’s Here”

A Little Photo Catch Up

So much and so little has happened since my last post. Summer’s just over a week away and the weather just beginning to get hotter. My winter, early spring clothes are all tidied away until October, my summer wardrobe moved for forward. I twisted my ankle running Disafío de Guerreros obstacle race and have a Spartan Super coming up in Andorra in the next few weeks. 

My ankle’s almost healed, about 90-95% capacity. I somehow moved one foot bone out of position which the physio/osteopath put back in place. Lunges are still an issue, Continue reading “A Little Photo Catch Up”

Spring Time

Happy April!

I’m back! Where cha go? Did you get away on holiday? Did you escape for an Easter Break? Did you loose internet connection? No, things got busy. Mr D the cat hasn’t been too well so vet visits, P’s here and there just wasn’t an opportunity to say hi, although I did escape the city for a few afternoons.

As usual with catch ups I’ll let the photos do the talking with a chit chat!  Continue reading “Spring Time”

Early Spring Sunshine

Spring’s here early and I’ve caught the cliche Spring Cleaning. Maybe it’s the change of light that’s making a few things look tired and faded or the light’s making things look different and in need of change. Whichever one, I’ve been switching and moving things around in the apartment, having a mini KonMari Method clean out and feeling change of happier energy in general. Cliche I know! Spring’s always a wake up season after a season of hibernating so maybe I’ve caught that energy and have a whole host of ideas I want to get moving.

Living in a city you don’t notice seasonal changes as much. Grey becomes a different tone of lifeless grey. Continue reading “Early Spring Sunshine”
