A Relaxing Day

A relaxing (albeit autumnal) day at Woburn Abbey with friends. It gave me an excuse to test drive my Leica.  I am not sure what I am doing yet but these are my favourite photos from today.

I Leica it a lot!

After lots of deliberation and years of thinking about it, I took the plunge and got a Leica camera. I confess I cannot afford a brand new one but knowing how robust and advanced the cameras are, I managed to buy a really good quality D Lux 5 today. I have only been messing around…

Gym’ll fix it

Another day and another trip to the gym (well last night). I’ve done really well this week with three sessions at the gym since Saturday. Last night was the first post work session and although it was tough when I started I just got on with it. ¬†To quote my colleagues I smashed it! I…

ÔĽŅ3 weeks in…

It is three weeks since I joined the gym and I have had my first assessment today. Not big news for some but bigs news for me! I have not managed to do the split of running and the gym, however, I have been to the gym regularly – although not as regularly as I…

Things will workout

As you will have read it’s been some time that I have had the problems with my calves, hamstrings etc and the physio has had varying amount of success. I think the routine running route has not helped either as I have mental triggers which I reach certains landmarks (even when moving my running from…

Occupied. 

No updates for a while as been very occupied with a few things.   Notably this week working in Rotterdam.  Normal service will resume soon. Until then check out my snap from the flight back last night… Approaching the uk A post shared by Keith (@trunkguy74) on Aug 10, 2016 at 10:01am PDT

Hmmm

OK, this was hard. It was hot. ¬†I was sweaty. ¬†I didn’t want to run. ¬†I was sore. ¬†I was very negative. But I ran. ¬†And I am glad I did! Again I pretty much ignored the cadence training from the Physio but I ran as much as I could for as long as I…

Inner Sanctum

Pet Shop Boys play 4 nights of their new show Inner Sanctum at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London and we managed to go to opening night. Not sure what to expect, not wanting a show full of boxes (Pandemonium) and not really liking the new album Super I was unsure about the evening. I had…

Life lessons…

Lesson 1 – Never tell your Physiotherapist everything is going well I went back to the physio this week expecting her to say I didn’t have to go back. ¬†Things were feeling good and I was breaking the targets set by the physio. I soon learnt I should have kept quiet as she gave me…

The run with two times

It’s been a tough week this week and it’s been hot. My total commute yesterday was over 6 hours and needless to say I have been tired but I have also been determined to get at least one more cadence session in this week. I am not going to get the chance to run this…
