I’ve managed a couple of 4 milers this week. I say managed because at the moment I’m working extra hours to get some more cash in the house and when i say extra hours i mean “normal” hours as opposed to my usual skiving 3 or 4 hours a day.
It looks like I’m gonna have to cancel running in the Snowdon Marathon this year. I think i have to face up to the fact i bit off more than i can chew. It’s quite a relief to say that because i was putting to much pressure on myself with regards to training. Mind you i saw a race advertised in Runners World magazine this month called the coast to coast which starts on the west coast of Wales through Snowdonia and all the way to the East coast mmmmmmm?……. naaaahhh!
:) have a great weekend.
Back running again after taking a short break. I had to take a bit of time off because of the baby, work blah blah it was all to much. So i’m taking it easy with just a few 3 milers and try to get a longer run in over the weekend.
It is so good to be back running after having over a week of doing nothing. I must admit it was hard to get my arse out there but once i did it changes everything from the way i eat to the energy i have during the day. I know for a fact that without running i would soon turn into a 20 stone lazy monster.
Another 4 miler this morning and then we all went swimming which was great fun. Yes i know i look just great with my Speedo goggles :)
I promise i will stop bleating on about being up most of the night from now on…………………………..i was up most of the night last night.
I managed to get these legs out and do a 4 miler this morning i feel like i have piled on a few pounds in the week i have done nothing in the form of exercercise. The run went well though.
Best of luck to JogBlog who is doing the 3 peaks challenge this weekend. I hope to see her at the top of Snowdon on Monday.
I’m gonna try and get out for some sort of run this weekend but getting up 3 or 4 times a night is taking it’s toll on my enthusiasm to go.
Must get my lazy arse out there!
I managed to get out and do a quick 4 miler this afternoon. Ive had very little sleep over the last few days but that’s to be expected but it still doesn’t change the shock of having to be awake every 2 or 3 hours. So we are now doing a sort of shift pattern so at least we can get a few hours sleep at a time.
The 4 miles went well though and all that hill work from the previous week has paid off.
Just a quick update. Tom is fine and Ev is fine. A couple of snaps from today. My daughter Amelia has been fantastic and is getting invoved with everything. That little mark on his cheek is where he scratched himself, he has huge nails.
And many thanks for the kind comments all shown to Eva and she says Thank You!!
Tom was born just a couple of hours ago. He weighed in at 7 pounds 10 ounces and is doing very well. No problems with the birth. Eva is ok she is rather knackered now. Ive been sent home to get a few hours kip but i can’t sleep because of the huge buzz!! He arrived at 03:15.
EDIT: We are all at home now and all is well just very very tired. He is feeding well and Ev is doing an awesome job. Our daughter Amelia who is just over 3 has been a star and is already all protective over her lil bro. I can’t believe they let me be a dad its just the best thing in the world. Now here’s to the next year or so without any sleep ……………..again! :)
