Well this week has been a bit naff and I’ve been rather grumpy. 5 days ago I was pinged by the NHS Covid app to advise I had to self isolate for the next 5 days (it would have been 10 days but the day in question was 5 days prior)
I’m doing 2 ultra challenges in the next 6 weeks and really could not afford to lose 5 days training. However, once I stopped being a baby I realised there’s worse things to happen. I could still exercise in the house and I still have 2 weeks until the first event.
So I’m free to go outside tomorrow and I’m literally out hiking the hills for the next 8 days, then I’ll do a couple of shorter hikes the week before the event in the lake district.
So today I got up stupidly early, did a 3000 step challenge workout, yoga, wim hof breathing exercises, acupressure mat session and spent the rest of the day in the garden reading a whole book. Ate good food with very little crap, which is a miracle for me. A proper self care day. Maybe….I needed to chill a little and look after me a bit before cracking on with more training. Maybe I needed to refocus. I think its worked.
The book I read today was written by my friend who is a new author Irene Wignall. Honestly both her books are bloody brilliant. Easy reading, relatable (in the sense of crazy shit going on) and so bloody funny. Plus she is sober and very inspirational 😍
Irene, it came this morning, I’ve just finished it and I bloody bloody loved it 🙌🙌🙌 (if you fancy seeing what the fuss is about, website is below)
Thanks for reading and be prepared to see a few weeks of pictures from the hills and mountains. Enjoy the rest of your weekend 🥰
