Hols 2018

Day One

For those of you who want to read about running please look away, the hubby and I are on our holiday, that coupled with a nasty limp means running adventures will be scarce for at least the next 6 days.

Mini madam is away in sunny Cannes with BF in a villa with a pool and we have snuck away to cloudy Lake District for 5 nights in a shed pod!

Last night we stayed in Warrington-mmmm not sure we will return!

This morning we started at Lakeland Motor Museum, which to be fair is not my cup of tea but its the price I had to pay to be able to go to Beatrix Potters house later in the week. It actually was quite good and hubby loved it. All things to do with motoring. All cars were polished within an inch of their life and had been lovingly restored. To think at some point you could buy a new car for £230 and there was even one that went on water and land! Very Chitty Chiity Bang Bangesque

There was also an exhibit on The Bluebird which was very interesting-amazing how much people risk in the name of speed.

After lunch we headed on to a view point along the side of Lake Windermere. At this point the sun decided to make an appearance. The Lake is endless and beautiful.

We then proceeded along Kirkstone Pass heading towards The Pod, managing to pull over a couple of times to take photos. I even ventured in to a farmers field to take a snap of a Highland Cow

Quite happy with The Pod although it certainly wasn’t a cheap option but the view is amazing and the site is nice, but no it’s not a Villa in the south of France!

Tomorrow’s activity is a walk around Buttermere Lake.

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

  1. Also spent a few days in a posh shed…although I was recovering from NOT running*…and ours had a hot tub too 😉

    *if I was still blogging, there’d be a few posts worth of stuff there.
    Short version: I’ve had a PE and pneumonia but after a week in hospital, I’m now fine, but on meds for 6 months.
