The 20 miler was indeed rather too much of an adventure... but I'm glad I did it, and having done an 18 AND a 20 I feel much more confident of getting to the end.
Did 9 miles at the weekend, and another 4 this morning. Currently feel about 105 years old
Shoes were alright, but they were just £1 insoles from the chemist and I hadn't cut them small enough so I ended up a bit squashed Still not sure what to do, going to go out in old shoes later this week and see if they're really that bad.
I don't feel broken, just precariously-put-together... Feel like my upper body has sunk into my hips.
Booked a hula hooping class for this Thursday as I'm quite ready to do some exercise that doesn't involve running!!
Er, Podds, I'd love to know what kind of school building your 'blue building' is!!
Plodded 4 miles this morning
And in other news, I appear to be the subject of a press release for the marathon... Can't find it online at the mo - prize to the first waister to spot me in a national newspaper (for this, not for anything else... )
Lots of hugs needed round here lately, and a birthday! Have a happy day Jenni Far Far!
Nice plumber just came to look at me boiler. My lever (yes, an actual physical lever, in the attic) that allows us to switch between 'heating' and 'hot water only' has been stuck on 'heating' for, er, at least 10 years... Which means if i want hot water I have put the heating on, even in the summer.
He's not sure if they even make them any more, which is a shame as it's most pleasing and says 'SERVOWARM - MADE IN ENGLAND' on it Fingers crossed!
Sorry, whizzing through as usual at the minute! Chuggs, you asked about writing week - not War and Peace sadly Just ancient journal articles that we've forgotten about, new ones we'd like to start but don't make time to, that type of thing. Just a nice opportunity to not schedule lots of meetings/travel/fieldwork, and all feel like we're in the same boat trying to publish something useful! Enjoyed today
