This last highlight, the being able to focus more on Lou's Weight Online, has been awesome - I think I've mentioned on here a couple of times just how inspirational my clients are and how much I love seeing them smash their goals and supporting them along the way. There is nothing better! Well, perhaps you've heard me say before that there's nothing better than a good long run in the morning to start the day, so hmmm, seems these two go head to head... But you know what I'm trying to say! I love being able to support my clients and witness their fantastic transformations knowing that they have done all the hard work and have met their goals, whether their goal was to lose weight, or feel better/have more energy, or become a faster/stronger runner.
So, I am really loving being back and able to do all of these things. However, the urge to travel somewhere new just won't quit. I have a few places that I'd love to visit, and I think I can fit in some travel at the end of this year/beginning of 2016 - an exciting new destination would be a perfect start to a new year! Or, even, a return to an old destination that I am well overdue in visiting, namely back to see friends and family in England. Stay tuned for more exciting times on the horizon.
In the meantime, there's nothing like a running event to feel like I'm away travelling - even if it's only by train down to Sydney, which is what I will be doing next weekend for the Sydney Blackmore Half Marathon. Hoping the weather will be just as beautiful next Sunday when I'll be running over the iconic Sydney Harbour bridge. I'll be aiming just to run it fairly casually and cruisey - no pb required, but will be soaking it all up instead: getting maximum value from my entry fee! That is, unless my legs pick their game up in time for next Sunday - went for a long run yesterday and my legs were distinctly 'meh' and leaden. The same distance that took me two hours on the dot the week before took me about 2 hours 10 yesterday. Still, it was another beautiful day so was blissful being out there and trudging along none the less. Shout out to the super smiley dude and his border collie down by Merewether beach who was kind enough to laugh along with me (surely it was with me, not at me?!) about how 'fast' I was going, amiably shouting "you're flying!" as I passed him the second time for the return journey home. Thanks Man, loving your work! Your little white lie actually helped pump me up and get back up the hill. :)
