Day 2 of isolation. I’ve eaten all the chocolate in the house. We have walked in the rain, I have crawled on my hands and knees pretending to be a dog and chasing BB. I have cleaned out our bathroom cupboard and found loads of hotel bath bottles so I can have a spa night. I’ve not drank.
I have however become addicted to watching an adventure race on Amazon. I’m really enjoying watching the teams, facing their fears, over coming struggles and pushing their bodies to extreme. It’s made me think…. could I do an adventure race?
Before my heart started playing up I used to run half marathons and really enjoyed them. I also enjoy swimming. Would it be possible to fit in training around having BB, a SD and everything else. I know my husband would support me, he’s wonderful like that. I’ve decided it’s something I’m going to look into and I’ll keep you updated. I’m excited just thinking about it.
I always thought people who gave up drinking, were giving up something precious. What I’ve noticed is since “giving up” drinking, I’ve gained so much more. The zest, the regained sense of fun and playfulness, the sense of adventure. It’s opened up my eyes to so many more opportunities and I feel so lucky.
I’m also loving following different blogs and doing lots more reading on peoples journeys through this. Everyones aha moments, the sense of community. I’d love to follow more so if you could point me in the right direction of any more blogs I’d be really grateful.
So happy friday, no wine o’clock for me. Homemade meatballs, pasta and garlic bread. What does your Friday look like?
Oh if anyone does know any good adventure races for beginners let me know
