Need to catch up but too late right now. I hope you're all well
I got back from my holidays late on Monday evening. It was a fabulous 9 days of gluttony (of the cheese, bread and wine variety mainly), travelling around some beautiful French countryside- mainly Charente and Loire region; lolling around, reading, swimming in the pool, daily runs at a *very* leisurely pace. for the first part of our holiday in Charente, we were staying in the grounds of an old chateau at the top of a very steep hill, which made for some challenging hills training. The first time , my 14 year old son came with me and made an effort to beat his old mum. Needless to say that was the first and only time he joined me for a run
I think I have put on huge amounts of weight and am actually too scared to weigh myself :-/
I also went back to work yesterday after a lovely 5.5 week break- boo to return to work!!, and it was my birthday. 42 I think. Have done a bit of running- a very easy 4 ish miles in the forest yesterday and tonight a 5 k cross country race with the club which was absolutely dreadful. Around 26 minutes I think. I blame holiday and birthday excesses.
Will catch up soon
