Welcome to Colchester

  The weather has been lovely today so we decided to take a long walk around Colchester. We’ve lived here just over five years and we have had a good exploration of the town whilst we’ve been here and yet there is always more to see. I have seen Jumbo (the Victorian water tower) from a…

Time for another gym assessment…

It’s been about 10 weeks since we joined the Essex Golf and Country Club and my gym attendance is going strong.  It has enabled me to be focussed and allows us to both get out and have a decent round of exercise (which was the intention). Richard has found his groove in the pool whilst…

David Bailey? Mario Testino?

  …I don’t think so but I will keep trying! I am considering doing a photography course to try and get the most from my Leica but that won’t be for a couple of weeks. My boss, however, had the bright idea that we could do with some team portraits for our profiles.  Initially, I…

Work (out) Bitch!

Thanks to Britney the opening section of my work out today was harder than it should have been.  Work Bitch queued up on my playlist and I decided to match the speed of the traak whilst on the bike. Of course this was in the hardest section of my bike routine!   And then I…

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…

3 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…

Burghley House

Burghley House Heaven Hell The Gardens of Surprise Sculpture Garden  

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…
