My name is Assumpta and I am a lactic acid junkie. There, I said it. If I’m honest I probably don’t really fit the profile so that admission is a stretch but it sounds catchier than “I like to do things that raise my heart rate and have an element of danger from time to time”.
As I shared in a previous post (see here), I started climbing / bouldering a few months ago. It’s a really awesome pastime but the only downsides are the need to keep my nails short and also the sneaky callouses forming on my palms (Mary Kay’s Satin Hands set to the rescue!). Other than that, I love it!
I have found that my active hobbies are indicative of my life as a whole; interesting, challenging, unanticipated by some, fraught with risk, sometimes a little messy, yet fun and rewarding. While I enjoy physical activity, the adrenalin high and aesthetic benefits that come with it, I am not consistent like my actual lactic acid junkie friends – but I’m changing that.
I now own a lot more sportswear than ever before and I have three pairs of running trainers! That may not sound like much but for a girl who lives in heels it’s a pretty darn big deal! Here are some pictures from when I went climbing with my bestie:
Oh you know… just hanging around (which is actually pretty disorienting when you have a head full of braids!)
And now for a snack break!
He says when he kisses you,
he always tastes sea on his tongue.
Little does he know that
daily you bathe in tears.
