a day in Plettenberg Bay

Holiday over…


My 2 weeks of R&R are coming to an end… It has been great to relax and not try and fit life inbetween training sessions! I definately have missed training though, and am pretty excited to get back out there.

I have managed to do a few beach and forest runs, Splash has been able to run 2.5km comfortably. I don’t want to run him too much as he is still young, so he mainly has been walking! Which he loves too.

Next up is SA Champs in East London. The Border Canoe Club guys have promised a great event so make sure you don’t miss out!

Have a great weekend!

Friday :)


Even though I don’t have a nine-to-five I still love Fridays! Weird, but weekends still mean something to me, I suppose it’s because everyone else I know is now “off” work for the weekend, so more people to hang out with!

Training is going well, nearly finished with a big aerobic block of work. Looking forward to the 2 days recovery that are coming. My collar bone is still niggling after my accident, but at least I am out there on the water. Gym has taken a back seat, but I am enjoying the bits of strength work I am doing, mainly more lower body work, and been playing with kettelbells.

Saw a massive whale in the Bay this morning. Splash the Staffie heard it before I saw it. He has got so brave, and ventured into the water quite a bit today. Living up to his name and not his reputation! He has even graduated to lifting his leg now:) No more “girl” style wee’s:)
