Winter’s here in the North Hemisphere! The sun’s low in the sky, the cold’s arrived. It’s only been a month since the winter solstice and already the days are noticeably longer. Longer than when they were a month leading up to the solstice. Which means spring’s in 2 months!
I love the longer brighter days as the sun starts to climb higher in the sky, however nothing beats the colours and crisp light of late autumn, early winter’s golden hour, sunsets and twilight. The sun’s so low in the sky molecules and small particles in the atmosphere change Continue reading “Autumn Winter Project Light”
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”
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”
Seeing as it’s nearly October and as I’m always lagging behind and running late it’s only fitting I share with you things I learnt in August. Feel free to share your own things learnt during August in the comments!
Stepping on cat litter with bare feet is like stepping on Lego with bare feet.
Trees, palm trees and tropical plants at the zoo were green again.
My wrists holding bars, kettlebells, dumbbells are now straight. I’m sure they’ve been like it for a while now but it was only in August I was wow, Continue reading “12 Things I Learnt In August”
I hope you’re having a great weekend! I can’t believe in a few weeks it’s May, mine and AJ’s (the cat) birthday month. Time’s flying waaaay too quick. Not to mention the end of May’s my 3rd Spartan/2nd Spartan Super Run!
Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week on a Monday. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
