Mid June In Andorra

Back in June we ran, okay walked our first and maybe last Spartan Mountain Series Race, the Spartan Super in Andorra. For the record I’ll run more Spartan Supers, but at sea level or low/foothill mountain range like where the Barcelona Spartans are held. The Andorra terrain and altitude got me! Thanks to them this Super took me nearly as long as the Beast a few years. I’m a sea level girl for sure!

Post race day we took our time heading back to the city. We asked for a later check out as we knew we’d be tired and we wanted to explore bit more of Andorra. The view Continue reading “Mid June In Andorra”

Hello September

I can’t believe it’s September already! One minute it was July, August flew by so quick I wasn’t able to catch my breath and now it’s September. I’m not ready for pumpkin spice and layers. I want strawberries, peaches, summer sun and long bright days to stay. I want beach siestas, dips the sea to cool off, feeling warm sunshine on my skin not to stop. 

August was injury month. I’ve some how messed up my left psoas, in one of Studio Tone It Up app kickboxing classes. I did kickboxing years ago, so I know to be careful air punching and kicking. A few days day I noticed in lizard pose reaching back Continue reading “Hello September”

Weekend Friday Favourites

After a long hiatus Weekend Friday Favourites is back!

How’s your weekend going? I’ve had some many Weekend Friday Favourites planned over the past 2 months. Planned in my head that never materialised, photos taken never shown. Maybe it’s been lack of motivation or time scheduling with the beach calling. I think it’s more my time management abilities and prioritising the beach. Summer’s only here a little while. Anyways this week’s Weekend Friday Favourites, things that caught my eye or made me smile recently.  Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

2018 Summer Essentials

As Summer starts to whisper it’s see ya laters, its light transitioning from bright light to a ever so slightly softer fall light, I share my Summer Essentials. I’m not letting my favourite season go just yet.

Some of my summer essentials are summer tried and tested or all year round favs. Others are ones I’ve just discovered or started using this year, thinking why didn’t I do this sooner?!

Light Weight Shorts and Tops

For years I’ve been denim shorts girl. This summer I ventured into lightweight fabric shorts and rompers. Namely culottes or high waisted shorts. I can play with them more. I started wearing them on hot days really noticing the difference they made cycling. Continue reading “2018 Summer Essentials”

Summer Holiday Vacay 2018. Travel Day

I can’t believe it’s been nearly 4 weeks since P, the cats and I took a week’s trip to the Costa Blanca. While P travels for work and has time off for exploring places*, I haven’t had a holiday in a few years as the cats are on so much medicine I can only go if they go. It’s easier than getting someone to look after them. 

We booked last minute. When I say last minute, 2 weeks before so not really last minute but in terms of trying to find someplace nice to stay, last minute. Everywhere seemed booked up already. Initially I wanted to stay in Valencia, Valencia’s regional capital however we couldn’t find anywhere nice or safe for the cats. I’m happier leaving the cats in an hotel or an tourist apartment complex than say Air bnb Continue reading “Summer Holiday Vacay 2018. Travel Day”
