@ringofsteallskyrace was a tough day at the office.
It was hot, still and sweaty. My ascending wasn’t at its best, which was probably down to the fact I wasn’t really able to eat anything other than 2 @mountainfuel_uk jellies (though they really did save my life!). The first two climbs felt like they went on for forever! I was beating myself up whilst I was struggling, thinking I’m not good enough, I’m going nowhere in myself and I’m a right loser. Fortunately all that was forgotten as we were rewarded with a monster downhill. One I enjoyed very much, and moved up from 80th to 45th place. This continued for the remainder of the race. I’d fall behind on the climbs and overtake on the rough ground and the descents. Praise the lord I’m geographically blessed to be able to handle such ground and descents!
The last descent wasn’t as quick as I’d normally like, but I managed to keep on going and wasn’t over taken. I cheered in by @ivanholroyd and @lorelamovileanu and managed a little sprint finish in front of my @salomon pals and @mattward.mc .
I was very happy with my effort on this very tough race. I’m very confident that I can knock big chunks off my time of 5:07:58. So I’ll be back next year to teach these Europeans how to descend like a Cumbrian! 😂
A fantastic event, and one that everyone should experience. Well done to everyone who managed to get round! .

Ready, set, go! Nothing like a new pair of @asicseurope shoes #glideride to test out to reignite the motivation 🔥 It’s been almost 3 weeks since I finished @utmbmontblanc (new blog link in bio👆) & whilst the time off has been good for the body to recover it would be remiss of me not to mention how crappy I’m feeling with too much travel, lack of sleep, bad food & a few too many beers. My body is crying out to be looked after again so today I got back out there, just for a very sluggish and stop/start 5 mile run but mentally that’s already helping me feel better about myself.

Perhaps the hottest day in Swedenland ever 😳. It sure felt like it at work today 😩. It was actually refreshing with the wind to, even though it was like Sahara-hot 🔥. Been drinking so much water at work today, that I had to take an emergency pitstop to my friends house on my way home 🙈. A lovely ride and awesome tailwind at ”flygrakan”, +40 km/h made me feel like kind of Superwoman for a while 🦹‍♀️. But then I hit headwind on my way home so I was back at ordinary Helenawoman😂. Beautiful night, well needed after a terrible day at work. But when I’m on my bike, everything just settles. Motion is for sure medicin‼️

Serious game face or just in need of the toilet?! 😂 .

Managed to get out for an hours run yesterday with no ill effects. However the best part was young George recovering a round of applause off a couple ramblers after running through a field of 200+ sheep, off his lead, without chasing a single one. Proud parent moment. .

What a crazy few days! .
.
Friday was spent on an 11 hour journey from Keswick to @Kirk_hardwick house near Sheffield (Via London). Only form of transport I didn’t tick off was my camel 🐫 .
.

Saturday Kirk took me for a good tour of his home land. Which did look like telly tubby land. We rushed him for a bacon butty before we arrived on site in Sheffield to erect the biggest star tent known to man. In true slapstick Chuckle Brothers style, I hit myself with a sledgehammer in the shin. Before getting heckled by local sun bathers. We then got delirious in the sun as we got burnt. .
Sunday we were reppin’ @salomon along side @frontrunneruk at the @roundsheffieldrun great crack and atmosphere. No injuries for me but Kirk did faceplant the floor after an incident with the van. During the prize giving I managed to insult the whole of Yorkshire by calling it “a poor mans Cumbria”. Silence fell about the crowd of 2,000 odd people. To avoid getting my head kicked in we had to take the tent down pronto and bugger off 😂
Once the tent was down we snook out for a quick run to get away from the heards of angry locals and their pitch forks!
.
.
Today I make the long journey home from Sheffield to Home. Once again via London. .
.
What a weekend! Thanks for having me Kirky and the Hardwick’s! 😘 .

Think I may have finally gotten my head around the whole @match_or_die way of dressing 👌🏻 .

I even had red underpants on. But that photo is saved for my X rated account 😂 .

Climb or die. Survived first scramble up & down in Aiguille de Varan 💀 #matchordie #teamblue

For once I wasn't running late ... YAY ... but the sky looked threatening so a short sharp run commute decided. As taper time is taking effect the legs are starting to lose their residual tiredness and they felt fresh and raring to go. I was supposed to be taking it easy. But with a few frustrations bubbling around in my head I decided to just let the legs do their thing! 2nd fastest for this route. .
.

Arrived feeling more awake after a restless night, not necessarily less frustrated, but my head in a better place. Roll on the weekend and a chance for relaxing and headspace.

Beautiful blue skies for on the way home ... my top was even #matchordie with the sky 🤗 ... but really struggled to get the legs going. A day of two halves ... grey and legs flying, blue and legs like lead 😆 Mixed Intervals were on the plan on the way home but, after this mornings run, these legs were not interested. They just wanted the shortest route. Big no no on the hill. So a steady run walk. I could be disappointed. I could've pushed. But as the plan only had one short run on it today, and I didn't hold back this morning, it's not surprising my legs were reluctant. There really was no point in breaking myself. This mornings run wasn't intervals but it wasn't over easy either. Their work is done. Much needed rest day tomorrow.

Went running with @gin_and_bear_it... She lives down the road but is always making excuses as to why she can't run with me 😂 Finally she gave in to my persistence... 😅
.
.
Did a little loop around the glamorous Barnstaple, chatting and generally twatting about, which we are both pretty good at 🤘
.
.
Thank God she got the memo about matching kit 😅
