Sunday 8th May 2022

Today has been a great day! I got my usual Sophiecat alarm call at 4.50am, put her off until after 5am and then got up and fed her and went back to bed until 8am.

I went to the gym and did my own workout (I used to always go to the gym before swimming on a Sunday) but got out of the habit over the winter as found I was getting too cold and then I got my injury.

After the workout, I headed to the lake and a friend had messaged me last night asking if I was going as she wanted to come with me after seeing my pictures on social media. It was lovely to have company and she actually encouraged me to do a big loop! At the lake you can do a small loop (200m) or the big loop (800m). I have swam the big loop before I just get a mental block about it and usually just do multiples of the small loop.

But I’m glad I did do the big loop as now I’ll do it again when I’m on my own, I finished off with a small loop of front crawl. It’s just 2 months until I do my duathlon so need to get some more swim training in.

Got home and set about making a roast dinner and before I knew it, it was gone 4pm, not really sure where the day has gone.

Went for a walk around my neighbourhood with my friend for about an hour, came back & got my stuff all ready for tomorrow as it’s a gym straight to uni day so need to be on it in the morning. And now it’s bedtime and another weekend has gone by!!

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
