Friday was the end of term, so Joe and I celebrated with lounging watching TV and a bar of chocolate. I was going through my diary, checking my childcare logistics when I realised only 23 days until the team triathlon! And I haven’t done any exercise at all for 14! Whoops! In order to compensate immediately I got onto the floor and did some planks and bridges. Can you cram for a race like you (I) would for an exam?
Things have been a bit lacklustre on the fitness and blogging front due to an upswing in social events. Hey ho, there are only 24 hours in a day. At least with no school run to contend with and a weeks holiday to look forwards to I should be able to get some runs in.
After a week of crisp sunny days I awoke to howling wind and rain, but I got out for a bumbling 5k later on.
Socialising again, out for lunch in Manchester. I could have gone for a run beforehand, but I got a bit confused with the clocks going forwards, so I thought that I would go afterwards but we chatted for ages and when I got home I had to write a paper for work so I missed running😳
Didn’t sleep well, too hot, tossing and turning. However no school run, no excuse. Got up at 6 and did 4 miles before breakfast. As I’d been feeling hot, just got up and put Capri pants and a T-shirt on. Stepping outside I noticed the grey chill and realised that I hadn’t planned well! It wasn’t raining so I carried on, and it was odd to feel hot inside from running but my skin was really cold as the sweat chilled immediately on it. It was so grey and cloudy that the sun never really came up and I was disappointed not to have a ‘lovely sunrise experience’ but as heavy wind and rain kicked in later on in the day I was glad to have got out early.
Last night’s hotness explained. Woke up with a yucky sinusitis/cold. Stormy weather. Did some indoor rowing this evening. 20mins, 3.5k. So long as it isn’t a chesty cold it’s OK, so they say, and it was!
Early start at work with a 7:30 meeting, so no run before work. Pretty worn out with the cold , not sleeping etc so took a rest day. Holiday starts tomorrow night! Yay! Lots of rest and running to look forwards to!
