#fitforfeb 4th and final week

Posted: March 2, 2015 · By: Dave Elton · Comments: 0

Becoming part of a routine! Were as week 1 had an element of excitement at starting something new and fresh, the middle weeks had me down with a cold and at times finding the whole thing hard and laborious. The final week just flew by. I have to say I was well and truly in routine mode. This little exercise had become part of my life. It was just a case of getting out there and doing it...no questions asked! [...]

#fitforfeb week 2

Reality starts to bite! With what was a good first week down in #fitforfeb week 2 proved to be a bit more demanding.

Nothing more to it, just grin and bear it and do my best! [...]

This evening saw about 30 of us head back out onto the Dingle Peninsula, all be it the South side of the Slieve Mish Mountains and the Village of Boolteens, near Castlemaine. [...]

The Mahareehan experience.

Tuesday night in the Maharees. There are many ways to describe life. For me at the moment it's like a game of "Snakes and Ladders." The last few weeks I've landed on of those horizontal hissers that takes me from 68 and back down to 42. So a set back, a feeling of being in a rut, but certainly not out the game. [...]
