Wednesday 5th April


On Wednesday morning I woke up early  and decided to go for a run to the castle(I’m on leave this week). That’s the castle keep on the horizon. It was cloudy but the rain stayed away.


Ther are steps going all the way to the top.  It was early so the castle cafe was shut (and no one collecting admission tickets😱)


I made it. Then I went into town for a coffee.  Passing the witches stone on the way down. A memorial to the women who were sentenced to death through hysterical prejudice .

Then I ran home again. Just over 7 miles. A good run😊 I ignored my HRM and did what I felt like – it felt good😊

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.

  1. Nice job! I think that’s also the first time I’ve “seen” you.
    Sometimes we really do have to run just for fun.

    I’m sure a few posts ago you said that at some point you would run to the castle again on a day that it made you feel good not stressed, and that plan worked! Sounds like a lovely day, and nice to see you too, and out a face to one of the voices of comfort and reason I have found on here!

      Funnily enough it was a bit of a sad day for me – I had an interview for a promotion the day before and didn’t get it!so I ended up waking up early and tried to channel that angry disappointment!it didn’t stop me feeling angry/upset but I enjoyed the run!!thank you for your kind feedback!

      Well if you ever do come to visit the UK please come and visit us in Lancashire! Most people drive through on their way to the lake district from Manchester or Liverpool, but if you like fine dining there are lots of great places to eat, (and lots of great unpretentious places too) and we have lots of history! And a few hills! Once we move into our new house we can even put you up!
