That’ll do Tuesday (even though I’ve thought it was Monday all day! 🤪) So tired when I got to the hotel tonight that I really didn’t think I could be bothered swim. But I did it and glad I did. Just got it done. Aimed for 750m, made it to 1000m. And more PBs to boot. Happy with that! #SwimOffTheDay #Swimming #wonkywanderer #PB #SpeedoOn #Garmin #TriTraining #triathlontraining
An impromptu lake swim this evening, making the most of being at home & this wonderful weather. And a whopping 27.1 degrees water temp. One 1km lap, 6mins faster than my first open water lap here a few weeks back. Perfect way to spend an evening. #triathlonlife #naturestherapy #wonkywanderer #improvements #OWSC #lakeswim #openwaterswimming #oxfordtri #tritraining #getoutside #progress #QueenfordLake
Mini Duathlon ✅ well kinda! 1000m pool swim, followed by a 2mile slow, hot, stop-start plod to test the strapped up Achilles. Pleased with my small improvements on swimming technique versus a month ago. Slowly slowly and all that jazz! #Swimming #swim #naturestherapy #wonkywanderer #getoutside #Run #miniDuathlon #Runrehab #achillestendinopathy #achilles #running #hotterthanhell #progress #improvements #triathlontraining #triathlonlife #tri #tryatri
#MedalMonday On Saturday, I summited England’s Highest Peak, Scafell Pike, and completed my Three Peaks! (And in a much more enjoyable time frame of 3yrs, not 24hrs!) It was a mini reunion of the Ben Nevis summit crew from last year which was fab. Same weather as Ben Nevis too #FoggyAsHell Only downside was a) the 8hr journey there on Friday and b) the small matter of a blown tyre, in the middle of nowhere, with no phone signal on our way back to our hostel! Thankfully the lovely people at @nationaltrust Wasdale let me use their phone & @yhaofficial Wasdale Hall offered us some shelter & food whilst we awaited the pick up truck to take us to Eskdale. Not an ideal end to a great day but another adventure all the same! Beer was sunk on arrival home last night! #naturestherapy #wonkywanderer #getoutside #ScafellPike #threepeaks #ThreePeaksDone #NationalTrust #WasdaleHall #Wasdale #yhawasdale #yhawasdalehall

#TBT to Tuesday evening and my first visit to a Lido! The restoration of Pontypridd Lido @lidoponty is amazing and it looks fab. Great for families but a bit restricted for lane swimming (jealous of the kids on the inflatables!) although super glad I still went. Another 1150 metre swim added to the tally, total so far this week is 4595 metres, almost 3.1 miles, yay! #Swimming #swim #naturestherapy #wonkywanderer #getoutside #pontypridd #pontypriddlido #lidoponty #restoration #triathlontraining #ayeartogo #slowlyslowly

I’ve only recently started swimming again (hadn’t done it properly since school!) and found I’m loving it! Open water or in a pool suits me fine. I’m struggling with freestyle breathing but I am super pleased with my breaststroke and have seen a real improvement over the weeks - I’ve knocked 6 whole minutes off of my 1000m over the past 2 weeks. Chuffed. A long way to go but loving it so far! (And such a good stress reliever!) #Swimming #Swim #wonkywanderer #getoutside #SwimTheLakes #speedo #speedoon #naturestherapy #Exercise #Beginner

Well, this was never gonna end well! Drinking drunking with the besties for Sammy’s belated birthday outing.

Woooohoooo! 🎉🙌🏻👏🏻🎉🔥 1st ‘run’ since Feb and 1st PAIN FREE ‘run’ in about a year! Taped up to the hilt with KT and slow but an achievement nonetheless. Now just to take it slowly slowly and not get carried away! #Painfree #painfreesofar #running #achilles #achillestendinopathy #wonkywanderer #whitehorseharriers #steadyasshegoes #rehabandrecovery
#ThrowbackThursday to a wonderful wee dip in Rydal a few weeks ago for an open water swim. Really taken with open water swimming, and swimming in general, at the moment & what better surroundings could you ask for?! Thanks to @swimthelakes for a) my 1st intro to lake swimming 18mths ago, and b) for the swimsuit hire. Pete & Team, thanks to you I could have a new, brilliant hobby! #Openwaterswimming #Rydal #SwimTheLakes #RydalWater #Lake #Lakeswimming #swimming #takeadip #beginnerbutkeen #naturestherapy #wonkywanderer #Lakedistrict #Ambleside

A frustration killer - Kettlebell workout did the trick! Released some tension & now time to forget about work until Monday. Hello weekend! #wonkywanderer #Therapy #Workout #Kettlebell #LeftItOnTheMat #NotAnOmmmInSight
Lunch time break away from my desk with a 4 mile power walk. In the scorching sunshine. Same route as last night but check out that beautiful blue sky! And pretty speedy for a walker...I think I must’ve been shuffling on mile 1 with that pace! #GetOutside #wonkywanderer #Walking #Walk #naturestherapy #clearmyhead

Sláinte! Cheers & cheerio to the beautiful Isle of Arran. From wild camping on the beach in just a bivvy bag to reaching the summit of your awesome mountain, and everything in between, it’s been a busy, adventurous week. The weather gods have shone brightly on us, thankfully, and the people we’ve met have been lovely & friendly.

A fab day, climbing Arran’s highest mountain, Goatfell! Hard going in the heat, despite leaving at 8am to avoid it. Yep, Bonnie Scotland has been scorching! Worth every hard step & scramble for the brilliant views and a slug of Arran Gold at the summit! And a refreshing dip for the tootsies in a wee burn afterward. And a refreshing wee beer for Emma afterwards too! 😉 Arran, you’ve been awesome. #Arran #IsleofArran #Brodick #Goatfell #wonkywanderer #Climbing #Hiking #arrandistillery #ArranGold #wonkywanderer #ArranBrewery #GetOutside #OS #ordnancesurvey #TrigHappy #

#TBT to the free taster sessions at @the_watersports_academy a few weeks ago. SUP was awesome and I can’t wait to try more. Kayaking was hard work but really enjoyable. Concentration game face is oooonnnn! Will be heading back for more, for sure! #Watersports #Sandbanks #Kayaking #SUP #TryNewThings #wonkywanderer

After a really mentally tough week last week, that unfortunately spilled into my weekend, I’m doing the right thing today to minimise a repeat! Putting on my happy hat (thank you Reykjavík!) & taking myself outside for some natural therapy - fresh air & a walk. Thank you @charlieroofroof for the reminder 😊 #GetOutside #MentalHealth #FreshAirIsFree #NaturesTherapy #HappyHat #itsthelittlethings #WonkyWanderer
Skál! Bjor,🍻the first of many, I’m sure! Cheers from Reykjavik! #reyjkavik #Iceland #beer #WonkyWanderer
Starting the weekend in style with a glass of fizz & a guidebook! Fabulous birthday gift from @loopy279 - can’t wait for the adventure that awaits! #reyjkavik #Iceland #Birthday #Travel #AdventureAwaits #WonkyWanderer
#flashbackfriday to the awesome Ta Prohm temple, Cambodia. This is where Tomb Raider was filmed. And it’s the most amazing wonder as the monstrous trees and roots take over the ruins. Amazing & nature’s wonder for sure. #Cambodia #SiemReap #AngkorWat #TaProhm #Temples #Ruins #Culture #TravelBroadensTheMind #WonkyWanderer
Jet lag is kicking my ass so cheering myself up by looking back at my photos from the last 2 weeks travelling around the beautiful country of Cambodia. This photo was taken exactly a week ago, as we stopped at the side of the road to try the local delicacy of water rat (! Surprisingly tasty!) The uniformity of the monks in height order & the vibrancy of the saffron robes makes me love this photo. #Travel #Cambodia #Battambang #Monks #SaffronRobes #AlmsRounds #Alms #Buddhism #WonkyWanderer #Culture #TravelBroadensTheMind

Late home travelling with work. Sat on sofa, felt like napping and not moving. Got my shit together & told myself to 'Lace up, Lawson!' A quick-ish power walk to catch the trees on fire 🔥 with the lush sunset. #GetOutside #Oxfordshire #Eveningwalk #sunset #sky #laceuplawson #wonkywanderer
Another 'beam me up Scotty' cloud from a pre-dinner bimble. #Clouds #LookUp #Oxfordshire #EveningWalk #AchillesIssues #Bimble #wonkywanderer
Sun parting the corn on my walk to Childrey. I would've been home an hour earlier if I'd stopped fannying around taking pics! 🙄#Oxfordshire #walk #EveningWalk #wonkywanderer #Childrey
Cabin fever set in so an evening walk to shake out the cobwebs was needed. Couldn't stay in on such a lush evening. Unexpectedly ended up walking to Childrey and back. Lovely picturesque village. #Oxfordshire #walk #eveningstroll #wonkywanderer #Childrey
Feeling v sorry for myself following an allergic reaction affecting my eyes & face and haven't been out much since Thursday so took myself - and sunglasses! - off for a 6.5mile walk around the Faringdon countryside, taking in the impressive Folly. Such a lovely day to be out & about in the fresh air. #GetOutside #FaringdonFolly #Faringdon #Oxfordshire #Walking #Countryside #CountrysideAmble #Wonkywanderer
Not a bad view from YHA Brecon (well, their car park!) Such a peaceful, tranquil location and those views 😍 #YHA #BreconBeacons #Views #NationalTrust #walking #CarParkViews #WonkyWanderer
That sky looked soooo lovely against the dark buildings! #edinburgh #Scotland #wonkywanderer #Sky #EdinburghWalks
Arrived too late to walk up it - sunset was looming & I didn't want to walk it on my own in the dark - but lovely to make it to the bottom of Arthur's Seat; I'll be back to reach the top!
