The seasons are turning 🍁🍂☀️🌸🍀🌼! Rubber side down 🚴♀️ and toe-to-tar 🏃♀️ sessions are at the order of the day!
Saturday, 1 August 2020, was enjoyed on the Mountain Bike 🚴♀️🚴🏻♂️, riding 80 km of mostly gravel and small farm roads 🐎🐄🐂🐞🐌🦋🐛. The ride took us to the famous Broodblik en Koffiepit Coffee Shop. It’s a fabulous little hotspot situated between Petit and Bapsfotein, favored by cyclists 🚴♀️🚴🏻♂️, bikers 🏍🛵, families and friends who’s looking for a lovely outing into the countryside. All the mouthwatering eats and treats are freshly made and baked on site. This being our halfway point, we refilled the reserves with fab freshly brewed coffee ☕️ and hot out of the oven tasty beef pie 🥩🥧😋! The smell of freshly baked bread, of various types and sizes, arrested my senses 🍞🥖🥨, had my mouth watering and me wishing that I had used my bigger hydration pack 🎒, to cart a bread or two back home 😋😅! I highly recommend a visit to Broodblik en Koffiepit 🍞🥖🥨🥧🍪☕️😋🤩🥳! It’s a great 5 Star ⭐️ family-owned establishment! You’ll love it!
Refreshed and back in the saddle 🚴♀️🚴🏻♂️💨 our route included a railway track crossing 🚂! Passing through earlier it was just clean shiny tracks which we zoomed over, going back not so! There was a beautiful red diesel locomotive idling on the track not far off, waiting for clearance to go 🚂💨💨! Excitedly we waited for pull off! Then the beaut warned us, toot toot, make way, I’m coming 🚂💨💨💨🤩! Then it came rumbling past, click-clack, click-clack! Trucks in tow, filled with a precious load of automotive cargo! Brilliant 👌!
My little Garmin claims it was a tough ride 🚵♀️😅, the Aerobic Training Effect Scale hitting a solid 5 😁! Overreaching, the little gadget warns 🤭😂! However, for me, it was a most rewarding and fantastic ride! Totally Loved It 😻!
Today, Sunday, 2 August 2020, saw me lacing up 👟🏃♀️ for a slow paced Chubby 🐥 10K Urban Run 🏃♀️, to the rhythm and beat of Rock Tunes 🎶🎧🥁🎸! 👉 Running allows me to think, assess and reflect! Arriving back home, I was greeted by my beautiful little Grey Ghost and K9-Love, Madam Roza 🐶😍! Enjoyed a brew ☕️, some treats 🍪🍌🧁😋 and Vitamin D ☀️!
⭐️ Reminder to self 👉 Optimal Nutrition + Hydration 🍌💦 + Stretching 🤸♂️ + Constant Training Efforts ⏰ makes hard rides and runs easier and less taxing on the body! ⭐️
Fabulous weekend, revived and ready to tackle the challenges of the new week ahead! Life reset! Let’s Do This 🖍📚💻🤓💪🤩!
