My prd turned into a nrd as I slept through to 6:40 despite having gone to bed early last night. (prd=planned run day)
Now we're looking forward to having no.3 grandson for the day while his mum, our younger daughter Linda's younger son for the day goes out for her belated Christmas shopping; belated through overwork and a bout of bronchitis which is still weighing her down. The overwork was probably at least partly due to the Christmas rush on her website, http://www.thecomficottage.com also her http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/ presence, which combined contributed, I think, to the bronchitis. At the moment this would not be the most encouraging thing to tell her, but we'll be happy to have 7yr-old Nathan for the day and we're just awaiting his arrival.
Right, I did it. Now for two next week as opposed to one every other week as I've been doing since cutting down.
Columba - I'm not supposed to be training for anything which is why I came off three/four runs in a week. There was some pressure to give up altogether which I did mention on here a while back and cutting down the distance and thus the time out was part of the deal and alternating 2 per week and 1 a week was also part of the deal, but it ain't working as I'm now over half a stone heavier than I have been since I shed a stone and a half when I first took up running.
Surely saying the robin looks cross is a bit anthropomorphic?
Tomorrow's the day I plan to run. At present I'm doing three 3-mile runs every two weeks but my weight is going up and up so I'm considering changing to 2 each week. It'll be interesting to see if that changes anything. I'll let you know.
