Once I'm settled in the new house, I'm going to upgrade some of my kit ready for summer camp outs πŸ˜Šβ›Ί

So, last night's bedroom views were pretty special.....

We don't often allow ourselves to just slow down, and breath in the fresh air do we? I for one have spent the last few month's with a mind full of clutter and stress. Worrying about thing's I can't control, or thing's that in the grand scheme of life, don't really matter.

One of the many reasons that sitting in a tent with a green kids cup full of black coffee, watching the stillness of the ocean is so beautiful to me.

Stripping right back to the basic pleasures in life. A sunset. Beautifully carved rock. A clear night sky. Shooting stars. That first sight of the sea!

I've missed my little tent and am grateful to have had this moment-  witnessing the beauty of our world.

We certainly found a hidden treasure on the South West Coast! Thank you @_adventuresofkate_ for the tip off! The beautiful Jurassic Coast in all of it's summery glory.
Tent pitched on higher grounds overlooking Chapman's Pool.
A little off the grid meant that we could enjoy the uninterrupted silence and a sky full of twinkling stars.
This is the good life 😊

That first run in forever 😷😀😷😀 GRIM! 
I've been super busy with house moving arrangements I'd kinda forgotten I'm running a marathon next month! πŸ™ˆ ooops!!!!
-
Just a short slow one to ease myself back in......tomorrow I'll do the same, as my legs are still waking up!
-
Also, Flaming June Half Marathon- 1st June.  Any other Cambridge folk running this one?!

BANFF MARATHON is now less than 7 weeks away!!!!! πŸ™†πŸ™†πŸ™†
-
Woooooaaaaah......maybe time to eat less cheese and run more miles!!!???!!! πŸ§€πŸ€”
Obviously training hasn't been going great thanks to my lingering kidney infection πŸ˜” I even contemplated backing out. Then I thought to myself, well if I can run Kilimanjaro Marathon in 27Β°C heat WITH a Kidney infection.....then I sure can man the f**k up and smash out this one too!!!! πŸ™†πŸ‘Š
-
I actually visited Banff last winter, and honestly.....it really is just one of the most beautiful places!!! I'm pretty excited to be running 26.2 miles around it really πŸ˜„
-
There I was last year, testing my luck on a frozen Lake Louise!

πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ New Shoesies!!! Possibly THE most booooring colours (I know!) but I had to boycott the offensively almostorangebutdefinatelystillpink...pink!!!! 😩😝 Rest well my trusty Ravenna 8 Brooks, and helloooo again to my old friends Saucony πŸ–..... 5k to test and feel very nice.....
Marathon training commences properly tomorrow!!!! Still debating on whether or not I should push myself through Banff Marathon in 6 weeks time. My Kidney infection had pretty much KOed me since Kili, and so I'm feeling pretty unfit at the mo. Will see how much progress I make over the next fortnight, and how comfortable I feel at 13 miles in 3 weeks time.

Hey guys, I've been a little quiet on here recently I know- Thanks for the messages of Concern 😚😊
-
After finally fighting off a pretty awful Kidney Infection, and now suffering a nasty cold.....I honestly could not be more ready to get back training and feeling good about myself again.

Despite running the Kili Marathon 6 weeks ago, I'm feeling the most out of shape and physically weaker than I've ever felt before πŸ˜”πŸ˜€
-
Watching all the amazing runners on Sunday was SO inspiring, seeing everybody pushing themselves in that heat to cross that line was definately the push I needed to focus my mind on my running again.
Before I ran London Marathon (during my training) I was comfortably running 8.50 min miles for + Half Marathon distances!!!! Half Marathon PB 1.58. Now I'd probably struggle with 10min miles, which evidently shows my lack of commitment (and probably laziness!)
-
I'm feeling more determined than ever to get a Sub 4.30 Marathon for Yorkshire in October. This is pretty much my short term ambition. London was a write off, and Kili cannot be judged on times based on the route and temperature. I'd be over the moon to get that sub 4.
I'm never going to be the fastest Marathon runner in the world, but to get a respectable time would make me a very happy girl.
Now begins the hard part- training from the start.....after 6 weeks of nothing, this will be pretty grim to begin with!!!
-
Wish me luck πŸ˜ŠπŸƒ

One more memory from that time I was LOVING life on the trail! 
The face wasn't purely grumps- I was chewing on coca leaves at the time! πŸƒπŸ˜Ž

Tonight's Masterchef brings back Peruvian memories! The weirdest yet most wonderful experience, visiting the floating reed islands of Lake Titicaca.

Just another day on the island for this Lady.

"What is depression like?" he whispered.
"It's like drowning.
Except you can see everyone around you breathing".

After my Grandad passed I vowed to take on something that would make him proud of me.
My Gramps spent his working life as a Languages Teacher. He was the most knowledgeable man I've known, and above all, the kindest most gentle soul.
He was also a Samaritan volunteer. He spent 20+ years dedicating his time, love and energy into being there for those who needed it most.

I am now just starting out as a Samaritan myself😊
The need for volunteers is now greater than ever. 6 million calls were taken last year, many of which were made by people who felt they had nowhere else to turn. Many suicidal, and ready to give up on life.
Apart from telling you how awesome my Grandad was, I want you to know there is ALWAYS somebody who cares, and there will always be help available. Please don't suffer in silence ❀
If you too are interested in becoming a Samaritan, pop into your local branch or visit the website for details.
Have a lovely evening all xxx

Blue skies and sunshine makes everything that little bit better!!!! 🌞😎 Seriously CANNOT WAIT to get my energy back so I can get out on some little walks.

I've definately not been the same since I returned from Africa. It gets to about 2pm and I just crash 😴 I've even lost my taste for coffee too!!! (I know right- s**t got real!)
-
Sadly, I'm having to pull out of Norwich Half Marathon next weekend so I can recover fully from this Kidney infection. Sucks, but listening to my body this time.
Best of luck to all of you running Marathons this weekend!!!!
Especially @alexstaniforth_ who I just know will cruise through with that sub 3 πŸ˜ŠπŸƒ
-
I'm now off shopping for canvas and paints so I can take myself outside into the garden and relax with my crazy little mind.
Which Mountain should I paint first?! πŸ˜ŠπŸ—»

Last year wildcamping in Norway. I provided a feast for the billions of mozzies! πŸ™‹ Found higher ground for the remainder of the trip luckily, the only night I wasn't surrounded by Mountains.

After weeks of feeling completely run down, deflated, lethargic and generally broken.....I think I may finally be on the mend πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸŽ‰
Turns out I have a bad kidney infection which has caused bacteria to get into my bloodstream and made me pretty poorly.

GP's have proven my point that they are a complete waste of time. (Soz uncle Dave) After being wrongly diagnosed twice and therefore allowing the infection to worsen.....the utter knob who tried telling me I had a chest infection with absolutely no coughing or symptoms relating to the chest whatever?! Alright dickhead ✊
-
Anyway, the A&E doctors & nurses today were incredible and took the best care of me.
Our NHS, despite its flaws, is completely amazing and we are very lucky to have it.

You know your own body better than ANYBODY. If you think there's something really wrong, don't allow anybody to palm you off with bullshit.
Lesson learnt over here! πŸ™‹
