Woke up this morning at 5.30am (really not my best hour! ๐Ÿ˜ด) and headed for a morning walk with Adam and post-walk coffee ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Literally no one was around and we had the whole place to ourselves! ๐Ÿค— Love this time of day even though itโ€™s super hard to wake up for it!

The views scrambling up Glassy Crag on the side of Wetherlam were amazing ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Not sure Iโ€™d recommend the scramble! It was a bit awkward route finding at times and a little on the short side, but as a nice grade 2 it definitely made the climb more interesting!

Conquered my second ever Severe trad route yesterday! Evening Wall (S 4a) on Raven Crag in Langdale ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ So happy the first time wasnโ€™t a fluke... I still pinch myself sometimes! Itโ€™s been my goal for a long time to get to a level where I can comfortably lead on Severe... itโ€™s now looking achievable ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ I would have never believed I would get to this point when I started out climbing!

Thank you so much to those who have been patient with me, taught me the ropes and helped me to believe in myself - you know who you are ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

So what do you do when your on a staycation and the weather is as good as this? Climb of course! Had a brill day at Brimham and ticked off a few new routes including a surprising first 6a+ known as โ€˜Brothersโ€™ - the top out was a full on belly flop but Iโ€™m taking it ๐Ÿ˜‚ Hereโ€™s the lovely Gulley Arรชte (4+) - a nice warm up boulder at the start!

Slowing down and taking it easy is SO hard when your fave things to do is climb and run, Iโ€™m in the final stages of recovering, feeling a ton better now (no more vertigo for me! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ) so I was super chuffed to head out for a little climb at Caley yesterday ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Nothing major, no top outs, pushing myself or high balls, and of course lots of rest...BUT! I was outside and loving every moment of it! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Back when Iโ€™d led an extra two moves on a climbing pitch that Iโ€™d not been able to do before on Bramble Buttress in North Wales! Every little bit of progress deserves a celebration jump at the end right? Not yet fully led that pitch... but one day it will go and I will have led the full thing!๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ #throwbackthursday

RECOVERY ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ It honestly feels like Iโ€™ve had this virus forever, for the last 2 weeks Iโ€™ve had something called Vestibular Neuronitis which has left me with permanent vertigo... now Iโ€™m not asking for sympathy here (Iโ€™ve actually improved a lot compared to last week!) but not being able to do much and being forced to slow down has taught me so much ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ With it also being mental health awareness week I thought Iโ€™d share them with you ๐Ÿ˜Š
.
๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธLike a lot of you guys I follow on here I thrive off exercise and love getting outdoors - itโ€™s the place we feel most at home! But personally Iโ€™m sometimes prone to forcing it, feeling guilty for not going for a run or climb, and often I end up putting pressure on myself to step out the door. These last 2 weeks have taught me that it doesnโ€™t make me any less of an outdoorsy person if I just want to stay inside, have a bath and read a book - itโ€™s whatever you need to do to care for yourself and thatโ€™s the most important!
.
๐Ÿƒ Enjoy the moment. Being forced to slow down has made me realise that although I do make time for myself in my busy diary, Iโ€™m often not present for it, Iโ€™m always thinking of the next thing and I can still have anxiety and stress occupying my mind... I suppose what Iโ€™ve learnt more than anything is that itโ€™s important to nurture and slow your mind down as much as your body and when I recover Iโ€™m definitely going to do this more! (Ps. @rosemarie1989 shared a brill โ€˜5-4-3-2-1 Groundingโ€™ method for doing this on her story yesterday which I loved ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ)
.
Itโ€™s going to be a few weeks until Iโ€™m back to full recovery but I really canโ€™t wait to get back into the swing of things with a better mindset to mental health ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ

Completed 2 out of 3 days of the SILVA Great Lakeland 3 Day - 47 miles, 21 Wainwrightโ€™s and 12 of them new for me! Unfortunately had to pull out of the last day due to something called Vestibular Neuronitis (or at least we think it was that!) Basically I had constant vertigo and loss of balance / vision which hit me hard at the end of day 2, which was tough. Sad to call it quits, but it was definitely the right decision and Iโ€™m so chuffed for what Iโ€™ve achieved over the last 2 days ๐Ÿ˜Š Thanks so much to @achambers81 for being a top running buddy and great to meet @ingy13879 @myoutdoorjournal and @chris.m.bunting too. Well done guys ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ
