Wordless Wednesday: This is my gym!

gym1

Sure it’s a bit cold, and it’s damn hard work, but what better way to get fit than climbing these hills?

Hubby and I recently spend a long weekend negotiating the Lake District fells in the north of England and it is BEAUTIFUL.

After years of sweating it out in ill-fitting Lycra in a gym with far too many mirrors for my liking, the great outdoors is now my gym!

  1. I'm jealous. I don't really like running (I'd rather be swimming or doing some kind of class) but I think I'd run if I lived there. (No worries about the aforementioned tagging, by the way, please don't feel forced to do it, it was more just a message of support for the new blog!)

    Ah, I love the Lakes. Before daughter was born, husband and I would go walking in the Lakes at the weekends. I could practically run up the fells I was so fit then. What happened?
