A Hard Task Master

I’m going walking… yes you all know!

But before next years walking, I have this years to get fit for.  In just over four weeks we’re walking the Camino Baztan from Bayonne to Pamplona and then in October we’re walking the Rota Vicentina in Portugal.  My son decided I needed to start training and he nominated himself as my personal trainer!

There is a circuit around our house, just over 4km long.  It has ups and downs and the terrain is very camino-esque.  My personal best around this circuit is just over 47 minutes… but that was in March,  when I was much fitter and it was a lot cooler.  However, my trainer told me I had to beat this today… and he came with me to set the pace!

As he sauntered up the hill, I huffed and puffed my way up, but in the end he did get me home in record time 46.40 minutes… and then made me swim!

Apparently we’re doing this every day during the school holidays… until I can run up the hill… mmm… maybe!?

p.s. dont be fooled by the clouds… it’s HOT in SW France 🙂
