Since seeing Phil in June he has trekked along the St. Cuthbertโ€™s way and completed a 3 week tour of Germany!

Todayโ€™s adventure training session was a good chance to catch-up as well as consolidate navigation and camping skills we had practiced in previous sessions.

His confidence keeps on growing and his skills are moving into the unconscious competence level ๐Ÿ™‚

Walking, swimming, snacking and spotting lichens and fungi ๐Ÿ„

Getting out with friends for some very warm winter walking on Dartmoor ๐Ÿฅพ

It started out very mild with us down to T-shirts at one point but we were glad to have plenty of layers and hats for after our swim ๐Ÿ˜Š

We really must enjoy being outdoors to spend our day off walking with heavy rain forecast โ˜”๏ธ ๐Ÿฅพ

It just proves how good the outdoors can be for you, yesterday was a catch-up and feel good day with fellow outdoor professionals

We all know the importance of being prepared and wearing the right clothes so even in adverse weather a good day can be had ๐Ÿ˜Š

An 8 mile hike finished with lunch in the pub was perfect ๐Ÿ˜„

For anyone out and about, itโ€™s perfect mushroom spotting season now! ๐Ÿ„

We spotted these beauties last week on a local walk in the woods. Some of them are poisonous so itโ€™s important not to go picking any unless youโ€™re 100% sure what youโ€™re looking for. โ˜ ๏ธ

If youโ€™re looking to get out this winter check out the walking page on our website, we aim to energise, inspire and enthuse while providing varied routes for all abilities ๐Ÿฅพ

The colours of autumn were framed well in this hut at Haldon Forest ๐ŸŒณ

Following one of their permanent orienteering courses was the perfect activity for a catch-up, some fresh air and a bit of activity ๐Ÿงญ ๐Ÿฅพ

With thunderstorms and heavy rain forecast this afternoon we got out this morning for a bit of MapRunning ๐Ÿงญ

Its a really nice way to get out, have a chat, practice some nav and do a bit of running which gets broken up with the map reading ๐Ÿ—บ

We decided just to tick off a few controls today but will definitely be returning to complete the course ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

On Saturdays we Park Run ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

The perfect way to start Saturday! For those people who have yet to experience a park run, I 100% recommend trying it.

Wether you can run or walk or fancy giving something back by volunteering, itโ€™s motivating and welcoming for everyone.

Some weeks I run, some weeks I volunteer and some I do both! Yesterday I had the pleasure of guiding a young lady who is blind around the course as well as barcode scanning once we had finished. This lady truly proved anything is possible as she smashed it in a very speedy time and I had the joy of helping her get there ๐Ÿ˜ winning all round!

The atmosphere is really friendly, theres no pressures of racing or having to hit a certain time, you tick off some exercise first thing on a Saturday, theres no weekly commitment and best thing is ITS FREE!

All you have to do is find your local event, register online and you will be issued a barcode, turn up and run/walk/volunteer, scan your finish barcode and then you will be text/emailed your results later that day ๐Ÿ˜Š

On my Lakeland adventure I had set my eyes on running up Bakestall to complete my ascents of the Northern Wainwright fellsโ€ฆ..so I made it and Skiddaw was just peeking above the skyline so I obviously had to keep on going ๐Ÿ˜†

Bakestall โœ…
Skiddaw โœ…

Having been up Skiddaw a number of times it was cool to ascend via a new route.

My least favourite route up is definitely via Jenkin hill and Little man ๐Ÿฅต

My favourite is via Ullock pike! โ›ฐ๐Ÿ˜

Since leaving the north and moving to Devon my wainwright ticking has slowed down. 214 in total, I think about 62 left to do ๐Ÿค”

Last week I had the pleasure of a week in the Lake District.

In between visiting friends and family I ticked off a few more wainwright fells.

This day was up on Brae fell and Longlands Fellโ€ฆa soggy run but I had the mountains to myself โ›ฐ

Even Alfred wainwright wrote a bit of an uninspiring note about Brae fell ๐Ÿ˜†

Ive been a bit neglectful of my social media pages recently, mostly due to working or being out and about so heres some nice views from yesterdayโ€™s walk along the Exeter Canal ๐Ÿฅพ

It was great to see so many people out enjoying some canoeing and kayaking. For a bank holiday it was surprisingly quiet โ˜บ๏ธ

I usually spend most of my week by the sea so it was nice to see some different wildlife along the exe valley; lots of herons, dragonflies, swans ๐Ÿฆข, bullrushes, hops ๐ŸŒพ butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹

Saturdays are for adventures with friends๐Ÿ˜€

A morning spent climbing followed by a dip/ squat in the river because there was such little water ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ˜†

We all had a great climb including Steph smashing her first full lead climb ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿง—โ€โ™€๏ธ

On Friday I had a few hours to myself before meeting friends so I decided to go and tick off some new peaks โ›ฐ ๐Ÿ˜

A hot steep start followed by some excellent flat trails along the ridge before the up, down, up, down of Fan y Big, Cribyn and Pen y Fan and a descent back to the car๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

A great run ๐Ÿ˜

It was a scorcher yesterday so our focus was on staying hydrated and managing the heat, a shortened route and plenty of stops made for a successful day โ˜€๏ธ

After a year of monthly nav practice, tent putting up practice and cooking practice, Phil had the skills to lead us on a walk from point to point and set up camp ๐Ÿ•

I walked with him and accompanied him putting his tent up, before leaving him to enjoy his night under the stars, fuelled with his self cooked meal ๐Ÿฅ˜

The training has given him the confidence and skills to go for a solo trek along the St Cuthbertโ€™s way in a few weeks time ๐Ÿฅพ ๐Ÿงญ

I had a treat this week with my caving club, being able to explore a cave I hadnโ€™t been in before and its magical formations ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Caving is something I have been involved with for over 10 years, right from my first trip in freshers week at uni, I was hooked on what lies beneath!

To crawl, climb, squeeze and abseil through small spaces and emerge into mega spaces decorated with calcite is amazing!

โ€œThis is like heavenโ€

Theres nothing better sometimes than a cup of tea in the right place, to take you away for a moment โ˜บ๏ธ

Phil brewed it himself on his stove after doing some good navigation to get us to the perfect spot ๐Ÿ‘

If you are interested in learning some new skills or wish to get out but unsure how or where, our bespoke adventure training sessions can be tailored to you.

We offer sessions in walking, running and navigation and skills.

After a busy half term it was good to start back with a sunny day at work followed by a run and a sea swim ๐ŸŒŠ

As a runner sometimes I feel like I have to keep my running up all the time but after the last couple of longer events its been really nice not to be training for anything. Todays run felt good as there was no aims other than to get back out again ๐Ÿ˜

I didnโ€™t get any photos today but heres some lush photos of some of our half term adventures; beautiful flowers we saw at Coleton Fishacre, some Dartmoor views from Honeybag tor and this weeks finale of the Torbay Airshow โœˆ๏ธ

If you wish to get back into running or want to go explore some new trails, take a look at our website. We offer guided running and walking. The evenings are a perfect time to get out while its light!

The sunny weather was enjoyable today while we practiced tent putting up and cooking on a stove, all skills which will allow Phil to be able to go for independent adventures ๐Ÿ•

His favourite part of all our outdoor training sessions is having a cup of tea โ˜•๏ธ its even better now he is able to make it himself!

A month ago I was up early and eating my porridge, ready to take on my biggest challenge yet. I didnโ€™t know how it would go, I thought I hadnโ€™t trained enough and beyond the first day was new territory for me.

I think the second day felt tough at the beginning as I was pretty tired and a bit sore to begin with but I decided just to break it down and focus on each mile one at a time. The miles started to pass by and I found things to think about and focus on other than how tired or sore I felt.

On the third day my mentality changed to โ€œif I can do two days I can do one more!โ€ And it worked for me ๐Ÿ˜

I enjoyed so much of it because I had focused on having the right mindset. Yes some of it was fitness and training but I would say a lot was in my mind, especially thinking about food ๐Ÿฅ˜ ๐Ÿ˜†

I think even in this photo I really was in type 1 fun zone at that moment โ˜บ๏ธ

If you enjoy running and want to experience more or transition from road to trail, take a look on our website, we offer guided running designed to give you a great experience, that will make you want to run further and further!

It was really good to get out on Tuesday evening for a last bit of night nav practice before Steph goes to do her Hill and Moorland Leader training ๐Ÿ˜Š

She is going to smash it this weekend! ๐Ÿฅพ ๐Ÿงญ

It was nice to be back out on the moor yesterday assisting with Newton Abbott Colleges Gold dofe students, it was a day of all weathers! โ˜€๏ธ โ„๏ธ โ˜”๏ธ

Its so good to see young people out challenging themselves and working together to get through it โ˜บ๏ธ

I hope they managed to get some sleep ready for their last day today ๐Ÿฅพ ๐Ÿงญ

Looking back on last Fridays marathon, this was one of my favourite moments!

After a hefty climb up a long hill, to get to the top and see miles and miles of coast open up ahead of me was epic!

When the runners got to the top, myself included we shouted โ€œwoah thatโ€™s amazingโ€ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The coast line was vast, we couldnโ€™t even see Portland yet, where we were due to finish. But that didnโ€™t matter because it was SO beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Thank you to all the people who have followed my journey over the last few days ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I didnโ€™t feel too bad today surprisingly! Still managed a day at work and only have a sore heel and one stiff knee ๐Ÿ˜–

I am absolutely buzzing from the weekend!!

Heres some stats and my maps from my routeโ€ฆ.including a couple of off piste sections which added an extra mile ๐Ÿ˜ฉ and the extra miles on day 1 as my watch ran out of battery 2 miles from the finish ๐Ÿ˜†

I wonder what is nextโ€ฆ.. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Resilience - the ability to be comfortable with being uncomfortable

Something I try to teach as part of my job and this weekend has been a reminder of what that means

I survived day 3 and made it to the finish line, surprisingly with some running left in me ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ our bodies are amazing, how they can work when they are tired and hurting!

The whole weekend has been one epic adventure!

I donโ€™t ever do it for the medals. I do it for the beautiful scenery, the people you meet, the challenge of getting myself trained for it, the responsibility of making sure Iโ€™ve eaten and drank the right things at the right times, the adventure along somewhere new to me and ultimately that feeling of accomplishment from doing something which is hard! ๐Ÿ˜

I am SO psyched for more! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Photos from Adventure Out There - Trail Leader's post 27/03/2022

Just 27 miles between me and the finish! Everyone seems like they are putting on a brave face to mask the aches and pains we are starting the day with ๐Ÿ˜†

Some hefty hills to start then hopefully some more epic views!

Found it hard to eat breakfast this morning but managed to finish off the donuts ๐Ÿฉ and a banana and some coffee โ˜•๏ธ plus lots of hydration ๐Ÿ’ง

Todays tracking link is https://events.geotracks.co.uk/live/955

Bib number 91 again

Maybe a bit slower today but mind over matter will get me there, lets do this! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Day 2 of the Jurassic Coast Challenge has been great; a lap of Portland, a descent into weymouth and along the seafront followed by a very hilly finish past Durdle door and into west Lulworth

To my surprise, today started well with the first 5 miles flying by around some beautiful coast path on Portland

I added a detour including an extra bit of hill, through not clocking the coast path sign ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Then we approached Weymouth, which was probably the least enjoyable part of the day running through congested streets and along a packed promenade

But that quickly resumed with coastal trails and stunning views, which was needed as I did a fair amount of walking ๐Ÿ˜†

The final part was tough and 10km felt like 15km steep downhills which my knees were hating and steep uphills

I finished the day still running but with pretty sore knees and hips, I ate well and have done lots of stretching

As one chap said today โ€œif you can do 2 days you can do 1 moreโ€

Well Iโ€™m back at the race HQ, the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy ready for day 2 along the Jurassic Coast Challenge ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Today I am so far fuelled with more donuts, coffee, porridge and Tensing! My fav ๐Ÿ˜

Legs feel ok, hips and knees a bit sore and back hurts where my bag must have been rubbing

Its another beautiful day for a Lap of Portland and a finish near Lulworth
