11/05/17 Oh my goodness. I have been meaning to write this post for months. Perhaps even years. I don’t think I have ever grabbed my laptop quicker than I just did to write this post. I was mindlessly (embarrassed to say that) scrolling though Facebook and saw this (picture below). I recognised it instantly – Raynaud’s phenomenon. I am no doctor, neither am I a nutritionist … Continue reading Curing Raynaud’s Phenomenon
09/05/17 On Saturday, I joined an indoor rowing team, Sub 7, to set a new World record for 100km. We were a small mixed team, lightweight, over 30s. Rowing for 20 strokes at max effort and then having 4.5 minutes rest for 5.5 hours was tougher than I thought. As was the prep and transitions. Watch my video below to see how it went. We rowed … Continue reading Concept2 100km World Record
Wed 03/05/17 I’m struggling to take it all in myself really. Could it be that I am finally feeling normal again? I haven’t felt like this in months! In fact, I forgot what it felt like. There was a part of me that was worried that I might never feel like this again. I genuinely thought that the amount of stress and pressure I had … Continue reading Could It Be??? I Am Back???
After a very successful February Challenge, me and the #sugarfreefeb gang decided to continue with another monthly challenge: The 30 Day Cold Shower Challenge! (click the link on the text above the read where the idea came from). I’d already decided and started this challenge mid- late February after listening to Scott Carney’s What Doesn’t Kill Us audiobook. Amazingly, as I was about to suggest … Continue reading MARCH CHALLENGE
I’ve just got in from a training session in the shed. It really is as grim as it sounds. It’s a bog standand 5m x 2m wooden shed which I expect was bought from somewhere like B&Q. It’s top of the range (not), full of damp with a plastic window covered in moss and a buckled door. Mmmmmmmm the luxury! My Concept2 rowing machine sits … Continue reading Who Turned Off The Lights???
If you would prefer to skip straight the video, head to the bottom of this post ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️ It seems that entering challenges without notice might become a thing. Maybe I stitched myself up with one my latest posts about saying yes to opportunity and tempted fate on this one??? For the past 2 years I have headed to the annual Winter Tough Guy, The Original Obstacle Race in … Continue reading TOUGH GUY The Original 2017
19/02/17 After a very busy few weeks focusing on fundraising and sponsorship, teamed with the dark winter mornings and evenings, I was getting itchy feet for an adventure. With limited time, energy and finances, my housemate and I decided to do the tiniest of microadventures and set up camp just 12 metres from our front door in our garden. It was just the thing I needed to blow … Continue reading A Very Micro Microadventure
A few weeks ago, I visited parkrun Brentwood to race one of the runners. He ran 5km. I rowed 5km. Who won? Watch here : ) To see my previous parkrun competition with my best mate, Karina Grimes, click here. Happy parkrun-ning xxx Continue reading Runner versus Rower Part 2
30/01/17 I just found this lurking in my drafts folder. It was originally written in August 2016 and coincides with me recently joining The Yes Tribe on Facebook. I hope you enjoy it. This is what I have got up to the last few months: Running a marathon over the Great Wall of China with 6 weeks notice Taking part in Tough Mudder Obstacle Race … Continue reading Saying Yes
