Mean and moody Saturday walk in the woods. The end of a pretty average week. I know all about being grateful every day and I try to practice #gratitude but some weeks just make that harder than usual. Illness has reigned in the house, sore throats, lethargy, bad moods and house bound tension. Tonsillitis and a reluctant giving in to antibiotics means no #wildswimming this week. Cold and snowy weather not ideal for those with sore throats. Grateful to be feeling better and a long walk with the dog in the nice soft Irish weather. And bizarrely in the middle of it, some clarity of thought and some good ideas on which to work next week. #moody#nature#greyskies#softirishday#softirishweather#getoutside#clearyourmind#wellderness
First time trial on the hill climb I call "Wind and Grind". This grind consists of constant switchbacks for 650m. Bottom to top, Sprint, then jog it down. Dont mind the total time. The total run time includes warm up, sprint breaks, and cool down. Total of three trials for my first attempt.
For initial trials I am pretty happy with this. I see this hill on 90% of my runs. I finally decided to put in some trials on it. Hopefully next weekend I can put in some more work and beat my current times. Funny enough that my third trial was the fastest. The first couple I was really trying to figure out how best to pace myself. I love how this hill hates me. Makes me want to face it again soon. Unfortunately, with how my life is currently, I cannot run or do any rec activities during the week, so I am limited to being a weekend warrior. I wish I could do more, but you gotta work with what you got!
As usual, I'm rocking my @jabra earbuds. Now that Im used to them, they truley are amazing. So far, nothing bad to say. If you want a better recommendation, message me, and I can tell you more about my personal experience with them. Also, this is my first time posting my strava results! So far loving the tracking app!

When a ray of sun streams through your bedroom window for just a few seconds, after a week of grey skies....gratitude for the small pleasures of life. We're so busy stressing over life's challenges, and it's taken me a while to shift my "in-the-momentness" to savor every little joy that comes my way! (And that includes drinking coffee while reading in bed on a lazy Saturday in my fluffy white bathrobe!)
