Week 9 run 3!!!!!

Week 9 run 3!!!!!

I can't believe it. I've done it :) feeling on top of the world right now. So I may have graduated on an unusual place (a rig bobbing around in the North Sea east of the Shetland islands) but I did it :) I've managed to add a photo of the sunset on Saturday night, sadly we are in the middle of a storm right now so it looks a lot different today

It's not that bad. I think in winter in +10m seas it'll be interesting

Its been nice to do after a 12h shift, I needed a way of relaxing that wasn't just watching mindless rubbish on TV

Well done you, making the rest of us look like a bunch of landlubbing wimps!

haha, I've worked offshore for 5 years (since I graduated) so its all I know really. Apparently being at sea is in my blood (my grandparents on my mums side were fisherfolk)

thanks, we won £18 shared between the 5 of us so £3.60 each :) it was a good night and what I needed to take my mind off the next days :)

I already have a target to aim for now I have finished, reaching 5km and then doing it in 30mins or less. The duke of Edinburgh Diamond award has given me the push I needed to get running again :)
