The Go Trek – Final Week

I began the final week after a two day break with my sister and friends, which was wonderful, physically and mentally.  I refuelled, recharged and felt good and mostly I was thinking, “I can’t believe in just a few days I’ll be in Paris at the end of The Go Trek!”. Monday was an easy […]

Strategy – how I keep Go’ing

I have been surprised by how many of the skills that I have learnt and called upon to climb big mountains – I’ve also been able to apply to The Go Trek. This trip will total almost 70days when I my journey ends on Friday and that’s the longest expedition that I have completed – even […]

The Go Trek – Week Eight

Finishing last week after three 100mile days (an ElliptiGo hat trick!) meant that I welcomed a few days in Nice.  Although I had miles to cover, the time there meant that I had a couple of days of almost complete rest. The cote d’azur is as glorious as it’s name suggests. Jean-louis, inventor of the […]

Firmer, fitter and faster!

I’ve been on the Go Trek for just over six weeks, I’ve covered 1,736 miles, had 6 rest days, participated in 1 stair race and completed three 100mile plus days! My weight when I left was 64kgs, it is now 61.5kgs.  I’m leaner all over and I have increased muscle definition in my legs, arms, back. I’m most excited about […]

The Go Trek – Week Five

I’m looking at the sky, it’s cloudy and grey BUT it’s not raining!  This week has been the wettest so far and the places we have been have made world news due to the floods!  I was told by a local that “in 50years of being in the region there has never been this much […]

The Go Trek – Week Three

This week was always going to be a mile stone in the journey – I knew by now that I would be fully into the flow of the trip.  (see previous blog – The significance of three weeks) We’d just arrived in Holland the last time I wrote about events on the GoTrek – now […]

The significance of three weeks

I always think that if I’m going to get into a habit, work into a new routine or see a change physically, mentally or emotionally then the usual amount of time to adjust is about three weeks. We’re exactly three weeks into The Go Trek. 769miles of ElliptiGo‘ing through the UK, Holland and now into […]

Rab holiday, I mean photo shoot, in Aosta…

I was introduced to the Aosta Valley in Italy last year and from my first visit I loved the place. It offers every combination of everything that anybody could possibly want! (Does it get better than that?) Action packed skiing holidays in the winter, walking/camping holidays in the summer, serious climbing trips on Europe’s highest […]

Zaini Hats

A couple of years ago I was at the London Ski Show and my sister appeared with a fantastic beanie. She had just purchased it from a girl who was standing at the show with her own brand of hand-made beanie hats. It was a Zaini hat. In the months following, particularly when I was […]
