Upton on Seven

I went to Upton on Seven yesterday for a day out. It is one of my favourite places to go on a nice sunny day.

It was quite cloudy yesterday but here is a few clips to gives you a rough idea of what it is like. They were in the midst of setting up for the blues festival that they are running there this weekend.

Couch to 5k

Today I completed the first run of the 2nd week of the couch to 5k app. This consisted of a 5 minute warm up walk followed by 90 seconds of running and then 2 minutes walking  which was repeated 6 times and then to end there is a 5 minutes cool down walk.

In total I ran for 9 minutes which is 1 minute longer than last week.

I really enjoyed the run/walk today and it is a great excuse to enjoy being outside as the weather has been so nice.I am looking forward to my next run on Friday.

What’s good about your day?

The thing that is good about my day today is that I am going to take my dog for a nice long walk and really enjoy being outside.

What is good about your day?

Today I have enjoyed a nice long walk in the countryside. During the week I am always itching to be outside and enjoy a walk but because of the dark cold night lately I haven’t been able to go out as much as I would like. But as it is the weekend I have been able to enjoy a nice relaxing walk and even had a coke in a cosy pub as well….perfect Sunday.

Autumn :)

The temperature has dropped and the leaves have started to fall so it only means one thing…. Autumn has arrived!
I think Autumn may be my favourite season; everything looks so pretty covered in the yellow, brown and red leaves.
I love being able to wear jumpers, hats and scarves and being wrapped up all warm and cosy. As you know I love going on walks anyway but being able to wear wellies and walk through puddles and mud in a forest is so much fun in Autumn.
As much as I love being outside in this weather I also love being inside when it is raining outside and being able to snuggle up and watch a film and watch the water trickle down the windows.
Autumn also involves bonfire night and Halloween so what is not to like about it. I especially love bonfire night as we have always gone to bonfire night displays with my dad. Also all the shops start to sell chocolate and Toffee apples at this time so I will have to make sure I treat us to one at some point over the next few weeks as they remind me of being a child.
As Autumn is only just beginning I am really forward to making the most of it.
