I'm just back from a great training/girlie trip to Dorset with G. It was filled with hikes, hot baths, cream teas and chances to watch Big Brother without being told off by our boys! - Heaven!
On the first day we did a 12 mile walk split into two halves with a large Sunday roast, pudding, lager shandy's and Pimms in the middle. It was a really hot day, so it was tough going, but all in all I coped!
Here is a picture G took the wonderful countryside we were hiking through. One of the things I'm enjoying about walking is how free it makes you feel; its just so full of possibilities. Now I know how those Free Runners feel! ;-)
Now, here is a particularly unflattering shot of me checking my feet in a preemptive strike against blisters. I have often mentioned my extremely skinny legs, and here is proof, and not just proof of my skinny legs, but, proof of my healthy commitment to a lack of sunbathing! Is it possible to look any whiter than this? Pass the fake tan please! (I must credit G yet again for this photographic masterpiece, although I must credit myself for being non-princessy and post it here for all to see!)Finally, a wonderful shot taken by G's camera balanced on her bag. It gives you an idea that the hiking wasn't all cream teas, as there were a few hills to climb too, but you can pretty well judge from these grins that it felt VERY good to have climbed them - even better than stuffing our faces!
