Hello, everyone. How are you doing?
Did you have a good weekend? Mine was fab! Our schools broke up for their summer holiday on Friday, so it’s been a busy week.
I skipped a training run on Friday because I had quite a few things on – but that’s OK, as I’ve been so, so good at sticking to the plan until now.
This weekend has been the Tarbert Viking Festival, and it’s been fantastic. The vikings have staged ‘raids’ on Lochgilphead, Ardrishaig and Portavadie: we headed to Portavadie on Sunday to take part in some of the fun, and we were treated to a traditional Swedish viking folk band, a viking village with skills and activities including, of course, archery lessons and viking battles. We also had a barbeque, and a cocktail or two, too 😀
Back to training. Here’s my week 6 training schedule, versus my actual activity:
We had a fantastic SUPercise session on Saturday – it was tough, and I was definitely feeling the DOMS on Sunday. It was the first outing for my new wetsuit, which was super comfortable – even if it did take me 20 minutes to get into!
I’m now in ‘peak week’ of training, and I’ve just done a really good – and fun 3.5 mile run, so it’s off to a great start 🙂 Or, in @TheWelshWookie’s words, we ‘kicked it’s a$$’!
Here’s to more of the same this week:

Yours have broken up early or is that the norm in Scotland? Mine don’t break up until the 17th and 23rd x
We’re usually a fortnight earlier here- this year it’s three weeks earlier! Schools go back mid August.
Ooh I wonder if that’s helps with avoiding holiday price hikes? Not that it matters to me we never go on holiday lol
It should- but they bump all of the Scottish flight departure prices up earlier!
How rude lol 😁
