Day 327 – Feeling a little cheated

Day 327 - Feb 8th My intentions to get to bed early haven't been going well, I'm slipping back into old ways again, and not getting enough sleep. Still, it's an old habit, and they die hard, I'll just keep trying again, every day. Last night was another example of not getting to bed early… Continue reading Day 327 – Feeling a little cheated

Race day! Its here! My training was nowhere near enough, but it was too late to worry about it now. I woke up feeling good, and had my to-do checklist to tick off, which was a pretty exclusive list as I don't like to leave things to chance on race day, it even included what… Continue reading 292.365

The pre-race day is here and its time to make sure that I am all ready for tomorrow mornings half marathon. Today and yesterday were about one thing, resting, which is equally as important as the training I have put in. I need to make sure the muscles in my legs are storing as much… Continue reading 291.365

Over half way through October now, and I think officially we can talk about Christmas without people rolling their eyes, tutting, and telling you it's "too early". Not that I especially wanted to talk about Christmas, it's just that time of year, the mornings are cool and crisp, and the evenings are getting dark significantly… Continue reading 290.365

Tuesday is generally my busiest day of the week, mostly so because of the evening being taken up by my jujitsu class, and the travelling to and from it. I'll pick Olivia up from nursery at 5:30pm and Clare will be home by 6pm, and after seeing them both very briefly I will have to… Continue reading 287.365

These day late blogs are becoming a bit of a bad habit, but its better than staying up late all the time and what should be 15-20 minutes of typing turns into 1hr+ because I keep nodding off and end up typing garbled rubbish that doesn't make any sense. Anyway, Saturday was a lovely day… Continue reading 284.365

Well, I've relented... the heating has been put back on. We've officially got the time set for an hour in the morning. While me and Clare can drag ourselves out of bed, even if it's a bit nippy, poor Olivia was shivering yesterday morning, and from that we know it's time to warm things up… Continue reading 281.365

I have said before, and still say, there is no better way to start the weekend than with a good run around the reservoir, and as I am still helping my friend train for her first half marathon, now just a few weeks away, that is exactly where I was this morning! My usual run… Continue reading 270.365

“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” You know what sucks... thinking its Friday when its actually only Thursday. You know what rocks... thinking its Tuesday when its actually already Wednesday! Sweet! The week is flying by and its a short term anyway, the next… Continue reading 120.365

Day 293/365

"Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other." Race day! The Bupa Great Birmingham Run is finally upon us. I'm well aware of having done nowhere near enough training, but i'm still excited and looking forward to it anyway. The race is staggered and starts in four coloured… Continue reading Day 293/365
