Towards a Better Me: Part 10

Category : LIFE

Realisation:   ‘The Fear’ was still my training mate this week, but I had Denise back this week. ‘Did ya miss me?’, she said as she bounced down to the PT room. ‘Yes, Michelle made me do planks!’, was my reply. The laughter from her indicated she wouldn’t be taking it easy on me. ‘Any mor...

  The Fear.  Firstly, my apologies for the lack updates. I had been put on a training ban by my doctor while an investigation into what happened with my face during the 5k took place (my face dropped on one side half way through the race). This meant I had no training and nothing really to blog about for two weeks. And then onc...

Rushing because I was supposed to be on the road at 9am as I was meeting my sisters at 11am in Castleconnell. Thankfully(?) Pierre was injured and could not run his Ballycotton ...

So…   I went mountain biking on Saturday. Mountain biking is lovely when it’s on the nice little Coillte-built roads through the forest. You’re cycling at a gentle speed, laughing with loved ones, breathing in the fresh mountain air, taking in those stunning views. Yes, it’s all quit lovely!   You k...

The Gym!   So Christmas, is over now and it is back to reality this week, back in Ireland, back to work and back on track. This week, I made a big scary step in going to a gym and getting a personal trainer. It is something I have been saying for the past 6 months that I would do but never garnered the courage to actually do it....

What makes an Adrenaline Junkie? I’ve often been called an “adrenaline junkie” probably because just some of my pastimes have included skydiving, rock climbing, speedflying,  (like paragliding but on a smaller wing)  snowboarding & skiing.  14 years ago I left a sensible job to chase a career as a skydiving instructor, t...

Category : LIFE

Lifehack – Changing Career Do you ever feel like you have hit a brick wall in your job and all of a sudden you are asking yourself how on earth did I end up here?   Daydreaming in the office, thinking –  ‘this is not who I am, or who I want to become…’ Well that was me about 4 years ago.
