Well. I don’t really know where to start because life has been pretty crazy for the past couple of months, which is why I’ve not been around here much. Ok, personal life. I got married! We had a civil ceremony in Hackney and then drove down to the South of France where 2 weeks later we had a Jewish blessing and party with our friends and families.
I can’t really put into words how incredible the day was, publically committing to the most amazing man in front of our loved ones. My face hurt by the end of the day because I was beaming from ear to ear the whole day. We chilled out for a few days afterwards in Corsica and then drove back to London. It’s been a bit of a shock to the system arriving home and having 05:45 alarms again but that’s life!
Fitness-wise it’s been a bit quiet because I took the opportunity around the wedding to completely relax and embrace my lazy side. We had a couple of beautiful runs in France, one through the vineyards of Beaujolais to run off rather too much of the local wine from the night before and another along the promenade in Nice. We did a lot of moving around of heavy boxes containing alcohol and a day’s worth of horse riding but that’s about it!
I ate everything I wanted to, had an ice cream nearly every day and loved every minute of it.
So what’s next? This Sunday I’m running (or probably more likely run/walking) the British 10k around London’s landmarks which I’m really looking forward to. I’m also taking part in the Shine Night Walk for Cancer Research which I did a few years ago and I’m really looking forward to doing again. There’s something about walking 13.1 miles through London in the middle of the night with thousands of other women that is great for the soul. After that I have no big races or events planned for the first time in a few years. I’d still like to do another triathlon this year but my fitness took a back seat leading up to the wedding and there would be a lot of catching up to do.
My immediate plans are to get back into the groove with some weight sessions, boxing training and spin classes. I’m aiming for 3-4 sessions each week so if anyone wants a workout buddy let me know! It’s always easier if you have someone to be accountable to.
