Keeping Fit Whilst Revising

So right now I'm right in the middle of the hell that is GCSE exams. As of today today I have done 13/25 exams which is definitely progress..

Because of this, and the fact that I am doing LOTS more musical things, I'm no longer doing nearly as much exercise as before year 11. I still have my trusty trampolines in the garden which I have no shame bouncing on during revision breaks (not even joking, back-flips and seat-drops are great for your abs) but I've recently rediscovered my love for running to help keep me fit. 

Ok so I know lots of you are probably thinking of clicking off of this post after the mention of running but please stay with me, there's some pretty pictures soon I promise. 

Anyway, during revision, when I can feel myself being on the brink of mental breakdown after attempting to do a chemistry past paper, going out for an evening jog really does clear the brain. Ready for more learning and revision when I get back, yay.

But you don't even have to do like hardcore physical exercise, just a light 10 minute jog with a little walk back is great! 

I have been doing a stunning 5k run 2 or 3 times a week during revision breaks in this AMAZING bird nature reserve place. It's really close to where I live and is an abandoned open cast coal mine that has filled with water so it has like bigillions of birds everywhere.

Plot twist I don't actually go running, I just take pretty pictures and selfies
I think the reason why people hate running so much is because they associate it with running along the side of the road where people driving by can watch you and your feet hurt afterwards and you get all sweaty and gross. But don't let this put you off! Find a super pretty park that's got soft land that means that you'll have nice things to look at and less people looking at you as well as the soft ground preventing foot problems- which aren't great.

Anyway I just thought I'd let you all know about my running adventures..

In other news my bass exploded spectacularly last Friday after orchestra rehearsal which means I'm having to use a spare one whilst mine's being repaired:((((

Broken double Bass
Pray for Milly's bass
(Side note- that cool person next to the bass is Scott the violinist and he didn't break it)
How's everyone's exams going?

Anyway it was my last day at school yesterday and I've got prom tonight so I best go get ready

Cheerio! Milly x
