Week 5 | 10st 13.5lb | Oct 10th

Hmm, still 10 stone 13.5 after a good week, so a tad disappointed. On the plus side, I managed to walk the Uetliberg 5 times and do a long skate, so I’m getting fitter. I have changed my calories to be slightly less this week, so will see if that helps!

Whooops! today was going well until i had popcorn and maltesers at the cinema - or can I discount these as part of the 'entertainment' and therefore no calories?!

Swiss Sunflowers!

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny autumn day (once the mist had cleared) and we (me, Alan and Urs) met at Zurich Aiport and skated along the no.5 bike and skate route which crosses Switzerland. We covered about 40km in 4 hours, and got as far as Brugge, stopping at Baden for lunch.

It was such a lovely skate, gorgeous weather, good company, lovely countryside and the smell of Autumn in the air! I tackled lots of downhill sections without major mishap, although I was pretty exhausted by the end of the day!
