Croagh Patrick

Last weekend, as part of my new healthy and active lifestyle, I climbed Croagh Patrick in Mayo (750 metres high) and it was tough! I felt like giving up and going home in the first third of the ascent. And then I thought I was going to die in the first third of the descent.

But then I was strolling down the last two thirds of the mountain and I was pretty pleased with myself. I must challenge myself more often, because feelings of success are wonderful!

Are you wondering what to do this weekend?

Climb a mountain! Go outside! Take a walk! Cycle!

Glad you enjoyed it! Were there many other climbers? Planning to go on Monday and hoping that there will be a few others around!

There was a group of about 20 of us and then a good few other people going up and down. And dogs! This close to Paddy's Day, I'm sure you'll have a bit of company.
