Four go to Norfolk

As a family we don’t go away much. Sam and I were always fairly reserved with our travel pre-parenthood and once we had Little H we couldn’t summon the energy to do it often! Last year we decided to make the effort to have a proper summer holiday and drove over to Holland.

I have been back training (properly) following my bike accident for about 4 weeks now, with my ‘renewed’ motivation to train plus Olympic inspiration meaning that I have been really trying to focus on getting in to a solid routine (training every day 5 – 6 days / week) to carry me through the winter.
