Really excited to get my hands on the new Suunto Spartan Sport Wrist HR. I've been using & loving these watches since 2007. In 2010 it was a dream come true to start working with & be supported by Suunto. For mountaineering & paragliding the altimeter has given me vital information & in recent years as I've learnt more about training & using heart rate I've got so much more out of my sessions. To have a watch with a wrist HR monitor is fantastic - bye bye HR chest strap, hello v cool new Spartan! - - - - - @suunto #suuntospartansportwristhr #suunto #suuntoadventure
I have loved hiking in the UK this past couple of weeks. The Mountain Leader Award is definitely a bigger undertaking than I had imagined but the combination of learning new skills, hiking with friends, making new friends, seeing a lot more of the UK & getting naked in a lot of wild swim spots has been excellent!! - - - - - @mtntraining @lowe.alpine @rab.equipment #mountainleader #snowdonia #formomentslikethis #mountaingirl #hiking #geographyfieldtrip #learningnewskills
Standing by the edge of Llyn Cau, Cadair Idris. You won't have this moment again, so what are you going to do with it? Get in for a wild swim of course! One of my favourite parts of the Mountain Leader is definitely all these wild swim opportunities. - - - - - @mtntraining @gopro @goprouk #wildswim #wildswimming #mountainleader #llyncau #cadairidris #formomentslikethis
Getting some great days hiking in this week for our mountain leader qualification. Cadair Idris, 893m. The day started in low level cloud with zero visibility, but on the summit the cloud cleared & the sky was amazing! - - - - - @mtntraining #mountainleader #cadaridris #hiking #ukmountains #qualitymountainday

Another day, another tarn... this time with Bronx - who is not only a better swimmer than me but apparently better at navigation too! - - - - - @mtntraining @gopro @lowe.alpine @rab.equipment #mountainleader #lakedistrictuk #dogsofinstgram #tarn

It was an absolute privilege speaking & presenting at Trent College Speech Day. The pupils are so accomplished already - some serious talent at that school. ...& l now it's done I can relax... until the next talk! - - - - - #trentcollege #speechday #presenting #speaking #speaker
Sometimes looking directly down when I'm flying can make me feel a little anxious! Mostly I look forward & a different perspective can give hugely different feelings. This was flying in Annecy a couple of weeks ago & this evening, even though I'm sitting at my laptop adding the final touches to a presentation I'll be delivering in the morning, I'm feeling that similar anxiousness! So I'm currently changing my perspective in order to get a good nights sleep! I love what I do & I love sharing my stories, this job & work I've created for myself is actually very cool & even though I still get the nerves every time I present, it's a good thing - it keeps me on my game 👌 - - - - - @gopro @salomon #paraglide #paragliding #anxious #dontlookdown #annecylake #annecy
Amazing day in South Wales today catching up with these legends @richardparksofficial & @alexledger52 & filming with them on their latest bbc project!
Au Revoir! Travel time again, it's been so good to have a few weeks back in Tignes... but I'm excited about the next month in the UK! - - - - - @tignesofficiel #behappybeopen #traveltime

One of my favourite things to do, swimming in the rain! . It was cold & miserable this morning. I got up & put a fleece on, plans to go flying cancelled. I thought about breakfast. Then I thought maybe I could do a short workout in the rain (I couldn't face a long one) a 15min HIT session would be good. Then I thought as I was going to get wet I could do the workout in my swimming stuff and afterwards jump in the lake, even though it was cold. . And as I ate my breakfast afterwards... I thought, I'm so glad I did that.... . . . . . @gopro #hero5black #goprogirl #lakeswim #wildswimming #swimmingintherain #adventure #adventurewomen
