The athlete in me!!!

The ‘have a go hero(ine)’…! Aside from my PhD where I am undoubtedly the world’s expert on British Home Front Propaganda Posters, see http://www.ww2poster.co.uk/ (well, it’s a niche!), I am one of life’s explorers! I like to remain open to the possibilities of what is going on out there… I usually have a flexible plan for what I want to achieve, and am highly aware of the areas that I’m interested in, but as a bit of a meerkat (well, that was the animal I chose to describe myself as for my life-coaching course), I like to get an overview, and am always looking around for new possibilities!

So, in that whole paragraph, how much athletics did I mention… not a lot, but in the spirit of that paragraph I probably wouldn’t be renowned for my athletic prowess in any sport as I flirt with many… like to meet my challenges to a certain level, then I’m ready to try something new:

Lover of circuit training (and most other non-dancy gym classes), give me another go at Kickboxing soon please!
2 x 10k Runs (about to get back into the swing of this)
Certified PADI Open Water Diver
Skier… I can complete a black run without falling over… sometimes!
15,000 foot skydiver
Hiked the Inca Trail (and other walking trips on my round-the-world travels)
Climbed the highest point of Montserrat, near Barcelona
Completed the Moonwalk (26.2 miles overnight), in preparation for which walked about 6 miles per day to work/back!

So, looks like walking might be the winner… all exercises the brain… and for most of my sessions it’s exercises the mouth too… yes, I have to admit, that’s probably most what I like about the exercise… the chance for a conversation… multi-tasking in a feminine way!

Wow, I quite like this Plinky thing… one short question and many different ideas, all answered in different ways!

Seat me next to the irritating talker, please

What This is About:
Just stumbled across ‘Plinky’, a site which provides random questions, to which you can provide an answer in any way you choose (and it just demonstrates the different ways in which people’s minds think!). I linked it to this blog, and next thing I know, it’s posted what I’ve written… (and the prompt acts as the blog title) that’s one way to get creative with the blogging (was actually trying to work out how to post the days tweets as a blog, not worked that one out yet!). Unfortunately it doesn’t post images or give an option to add labels/keywords, but I can (and am) re-editing afterwards to add those elements, although where possible leaving the article as is! Done a couple of entries, but don’t want to a) use them all up b) overwhelm with entries!

The Upload from Plinky:
Talk, talk, talk…

Sitting in silence ALL day would drive me completely up the wall, although if they distracted me from taking photos out of the window they’d be in trouble! I’ll pretty much talk to anybody and can find interest in most conversations… although the irritating voice may get to me in the end… maybe I’d have to try and pace my conversation to theirs!
