Just a quick one to sum up how I have been putting my best boot forward this week.
Well, firstly I have officially hosted my first linky here at Indigo Wilderness and I feel pretty happy about that. It's a big achievement personally and something I am very proud to be part of, with my friend and colleague, Kate (on Thin Ice).
This week I set us all three simple questions which were as follows:
- What has your first step been and how did you find making it?
- When can you make time to take another step forward and what will this be?
- Where is your favourite place to spend time outdoors?
To begin with my biggest step this week has been finally making it to a mum and baby class. I've been saying I'll go but I either keep bottling it or having other plans get in the way. This week was different though, and I headed out to a play group with a couple of other friends who have [gorgeous] little ones. I was really glad I went and though Fern isn't quite big enough to be playing with much, it was lovely to socialise and branch out, meeting a few new people. I will be going again and looking at possibly doing another one each week that will open up a bit more possibility of meeting new people. I'm not sure I can quite stretch to "Happy Hands" yet which sound like it might make me vomit or burst into flames, but one step at a time, eh?
I also began back on my running journey this week, with a modest total of 5 miles run so far. My next step will be to plan some regular times I can run and aim for 2 – 3 runs per week, building up my pace and distance in a comfortable way.
Though it was me that asked the question, I have to say I'm not 100% sure where is my most favourite place. We have some beautiful walks and landmarks here in the Brecon Beacons and surrounding area including three mountains: The Blorenge, the Sugarloaf and Skirrid, as well as picturesque walks along the Brecon and Monmouthsire Canal. I spend a lot of time up at Keepers Pond when I can, but anywhere I can walk with the dog is perfectly lovely for me.
