Some of you may remember this time last year I was about to embark on a epic mission to complete the Great Glen Way and a summit of Nevis in 3 days, supporting two amazing friends of mine who had sadly lost there little boy Jesse to cancer.
For the seasoned endurance athlete, just a regular challenge perhaps. But for a woman of average fitness, carrying a butt & some boobs, an unhealthy love of food and a body not particularly built for endurance events, it was always going to be bloody hard work! 
I hadn't even realised it was almost a year to this day, but coincidently it has been playing on my mind recently that i was stopped in my tracks just miles from the finish, due to a severe grade II ankle sprain. Somehow (and I still dont know how!) I pushed through another marathon day with a sprain and then another 10 miles the following day to try and get Jesse's flag to the top of Nevis.
I remember literally breaking down in tears as I made the decision to stop walking and took myself to hospital. I invested so much energy and pain into getting though the first 2 days, I was devastated not to finish for Jesse. I promised myself there and then I would get back out there and finish what I had started. The Great Glen Way and I definately have some unfinished business!
Many people believed in me enough to donate almost Β£1000.00 to Jesse's Anchor, so I know I can do it this time!!!
.
So....here we go again, planning another 3 marathon days to complete the 79 mile trail. Self sufficient but perhaps not solo this time round....
.
I'm also really excited for it! I'm sure you'll all agree, there's nothing quite like a good old fashioned adventure πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘£

London to Paris in 24 hours!! Well....it was an adventure!!!!
First leg was great, arrived in Newhaven after 60 miles with plenty of time to spare. Ferry over to Dieppe, arriving sleep deprived and a bit sheepish. Gear back on and off we went! Undulating hill climbs and 30Β°C made for some seriously tough conditions, and after running out of water with no refill opportunities for miles, I had to call it a day at 195 km. Totally the right decision for me, and hugely proud of every single person in the team regardless of distances reached. To all who managed the whole 184, including my amazing man @adam_geographic ....serious kudos!
I made 120 miles in a day, with no sleep. Couldn't have given it anymore!

Moral of the story.....don't try London to Paris in 24 hours πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

It's been a while since the last challenge! Back in March, after Sharpster and I had just collected our race numbers for Kilimanjaro Marathon!
.
This weekend Adam and I, along with 26 others will be getting our Lycra on and cycling from London to Paris within 24 hours! 
Not sure what scares me most....the distance or the lack of sleep!!!! πŸ™ˆβ˜•

The amazing man that is @ceyhunjay has organised this ride to raise money for Tanyels Smile, a Children's Cancer Charity which Jay and his wife have worked tirelessly to build in memory of his daughter, Tanyel. Together they help other families devastated by Cancer back in their home country of Cyprus. It's amazing to see what they have already achieved and am excited to ride alongside them both this weekend!

Trying to remember how it feels to be this cold....
-
It's hotter at home than it is in Zanzibar today! That's crazy!!! I haven't been able to train much for Berlin Marathon because it is simply too hot.
We are no longer heading to the South Coast this weekend as thunderstorms are due, and it's probably not sensible to wildcamp.
It's my birthday on Sunday so I think we will try and head out for a stormy beach walk 😊 I Love being by the sea when it's raining, It's actually my favourite thing.

Big storms you will be very welcome!!!

It's my birthday this week and we may just celebrate with a wildcamp! (As the weather is so glorious!) 🌞🌞🌞
But where to go?!
-
North Wales or South Coast?

Waiting for the sun to go down before I head out for a run this evening. I'm not going to have any expectations for this one really. I'm just going to run until I feel like I've had enough.

Mood and motivation has been super low the past couple of months. My mind and body aren't cooperating well lately, and it's definately had a negative impact on my training!!!
-
'Stuck in a rut' pretty much summarises.

This week I think I have seen the sunshine (metaphorically as well as literally!) and feel a glimmer of my old self coming back to say hello. That wierdo who can conjure up the mental strength to run an African Marathon with a kidney infection!
She's my favourite version of me and I hope she sticks around for a while.
I've learned that It's okay to not achieve anything other than getting through the day sometimes. That sometimes the thought of running another marathon may make you want to curl up and cry.

I won't always be the best possible version of myself, and I think that's OK as long as I keep trying.

Happy Saturday! I hope everybody has a good weekend 😊❀ Xx .

Just the best day with the best person. I've never had views like this from the Snowdon Horseshoe in my life!!!
Crib Goch was great fun but I have an actual phobia of watching Adam climb precarious looking rocks. When he goes near the edge I almost cry! (I now go ahead so he has to watch me instead 😊)
-
Anybody else have these kind of control issues?! Ha ha

I don't think I'll ever get bored of these forest routes.... ❀🌲

So far the amount raised for the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge has exceeded £1100! 😊❀😊❀
-
Can't thank all my super duper walkers enough for taking part and raising money and awareness for @mindcharity Mental Health. They were all so amazing and considering some had never done any hillwalking before!!!! πŸ‘ 25 miles and 3 hills is a hell of a trek!
-
Our fast group finished in sub 8 hours, and the steady group finished well within the 12!
-

Also wish I'd have taken photos of the 400 year old barn we stayed in for the weekend.....loved it!
-
So next up, National Three Peaks anyone?!

I need mountains ❀ After a stressful few weeks with lots of big changes, I definately am craving some quiet time. Just me, my favourite person πŸ‘« and some big old lumps of rock. 
Tomorrow I start my next challenge.....I'll be running a total of 100 miles in July!!! (Dont know if I've mentioned already but hate running btw! Ha ha) but will be nice to get back on the fitness wagon after a lot of health/injury setbacks. If anybody else wants to get involved, you can sign up for 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles on raceatyourpace.co.uk 😊 wish me luck!! .

3 days of running consecutively!! Am I OK?! 🀷
-
Unfortuently, I didn't go to Banff and didn't run the Marathon for personal reasons. I have a lot going on and some big changes happening at the moment, with more important focuses in my life.
However! I have set myself some challenges for July 😊 I have signed up for 100 mile challenge, which is pretty much as it says on the tin. Run 100 miles in July! That alone will be super tough for me, to achieve that mileage I will need to be out running 4-5 times weekly. But it coincides perfectly with my Berlin Training plan, and (hopefully!) will keep me motivated and on track.

I also ran my first ever Park Run last Sunday!!! 😊 I genuinely didn't realise so many people got up early on a Saturday morning to run 5k around a country Park!!!??!!
Anyway, long story short....I was ridiculously slow and so I am determined to run a sub 25 min one in August. I used to run 5k in 24-25 mins whilst training for London Marathon. Nowadays I struggle with sub 30. It's pretty depressing but I think if I put in the graft I can claw it back by September.

So Onwards and Upwards......no space for negativity here!!
