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 (more…)
I hope you’re having a great last weekend of August! I don’t know about you, but growing up as soon as September started, Summer over. Back to school around the 9th September. This way of thinking kinda stuck until I moved to Spain. It took a few years to really understand how the seasons work compared to the UK. Here the Solstices and Equinoxes more or less run with the seasonal changes with a week or 2 difference. It’s like someone just switches the temperature no warning. And true Brit I start with the weather!
Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week (warning it’s a little on the animal side). Feel free to add your own in the comments! (more…)
I was more than okay for this past weekend to be a little more low key than action packed. Friday blocked sinuses thanks to allergies morphed into a blocked nose, sore throat and then cough that I’m nearly over. Saturday evening I couldn’t sleep, everything ached and in desperation I tried the head massager thingy which helped and then the idea of reflexology popped up.
Monday’s 2nd Easter or Pentecost here in Catalunya, a regional festivo making this weekend a puente! For me however it’ll be a normal day hopefully making the gym early. I’m still not used to the day of the holiday being on that day. Bad luck if it’s a weekend. I’m still the UK makes that day a Monday.
