    OK – so my measly efforts are minimal in comparison, but encouraging nonetheless. Lovely room and view. Much love, Pam

    Measly efforts at fitness, I mean. Great to see you gearing up for the next big stage. P

    The physical pain you feel at the peak of exercise doesn’t have to be your friend, but don’t let it become your adversary. It is only a calibration of what you are, at that moment. Put it in a dingy and let it come along, but don’t let it lead you.

    Sare, watching your video transported me back to the St Hugh’s boathouse and I’ve been bombarded with wonderful memories. Can’t quite believe that you’re so far away – and so close to the Pacific leg. I am both terrified and thrilled for you (but far more the former!)
    I hope your body niggles are lessening and your mind is strengthening.
    Lots of love, Amz

    And I was SO proud of myself yesterday for running on the treadmill for the first time in my life WITHOUT FALLING OFF!!! My efforts in the gym pale into insignificance beside yours! Well done Sarah!!

    Lots of love, Belinda xx

    • Sarah says:

      Well done Belinda – a tricky beast the treadmill can be! My advice is don’t try running with your eyes closed – my experience is you fall off rather swiftly 🙂

      Hope you’re well,
