Wow. It’s been so long since I posted.
I’m happy to say that we did climb La Concha. It took us three tries haha, but in the end we managed. The second time we couldn’t get to the top because Murphy wouldn’t go past one point where it was a very narrow track with a big fall down on one side. So we had to either leave him behind or turn around and of course we did the latter. But on the third try we left Murphy at home and managed to get to the top in 2 hours and it was totally worth it!
Next week we’re going to try and climb the highest mountain in mainland Spain: Mulhacén. It’s in Sierra Nevada and there’s probably still going to be a lot of snow. So we’ll have to see if it’s actually possible right now, but if it is, we’re going there!!
But, I wanted to post about another thing. Running!!
I started running at the beginning of February. Some of my friends in Holland were talking about a run in June that they wanted to start practicing for. And even though I can’t join that run I thought it would be a good idea to practice “with” them. And so I started running with the famous Evy and to my big surprise I actually really like it! Then, a couple of weeks ago, I found out that there was an organized 5km run here in Malaga ‘Mujeres contra el cancer’. So, of course, I had to join! That run was today and it went great! Even though it was very hard, because I actually never ran for 5km until now. I’m still following the Evy schedule and it’s only up to about 4km in 30 min now. But, thanks to Anita’s constant (and sometimes annoying) motivation I ran 5.93km in 39.57 minutes!!
I’m pretty proud of myself. I tried running a couple of times over the last couple of years and I was never able to run for more than 3 minutes haha. And now I ran for 40 minutes with only two small 1 minute breaks.
Next goal: 10km SEB Tallinn run in Estonia! I have no clue if I’m even able to get the time off from work to go there. But for me it’s nice motivation to keep on practicing and pushing myself. And it would be a great excuse to visit a country I’ve never been to before .
