Vlog #5

Such a good week! A little heatwave hit England, I went to a 3rd birthday party and I tried a The North Face run session in the park which was tough in the sun! I also had my first ever experience of a tanning shop, not sure I'll be going back...!

Salomon Hydration Pack

I don't know why but calling something a "hydration pack" sounds so serious. It makes your run around the park sound like you're canvassing through the wilderness. I quite like it, makes me feel very hardcore! I am quite late to the party but I bought the Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra Set hydration vest from Wiggle and I'm not sure what to make of it.

Vlog #4

A shorter vlog this week; some exploration of the beautiful trails around Box Hill and Leith Hill. A little training but I felt quite ill in the week so a shorter video than usual but I'll be back next week!

The London Aquatics Centre

I have been dying to go to the Olympic pool since it opened (in March 2014!) and I finally got the opportunity to go with my friend, Emma. I can honestly say it was great!

Vlog #3

It's been a bit of an emotional week; the train strike caused me a lot of stress but I found some running therapy. Lots of gym work too including my first ever bench press!

The London Triathlon

The London Triathlon; the world's biggest triathlon. Well that is an introduction and it certainly doesn't disappoint. Starting from the ExCel Centre, the swim is in the Royal Victoria Dock with the swim and run around the Docklands. With so many different race options over the course of the weekend, there is a triathlon for most abilities.

Vlog #2

A new weekly vlog!

This week I got the chance to do something I've wanted to do for ages- swim at the Olympic swimming pool in London! I also spent most of the week putting off exercise and eating my body weight in delicious food!

Round Up: July

Joooo-lie. It's gone and we're into August already. A month of basically zero training, motivation or much else to be honest. I had days where I struggled to get out of bed and days where I felt like I could be an Ironman. Sigh, balance...life...
