A marathon and a sprint that turned into a skate….

I’d love to say that I’d run a marathon, but alas no, my knee is just about holding up to the odd mile, no chance of a marathon ever again – not the running kind anyway. Today’s marathon was a writing one – the best part of ten hours trying to get this major study on the road, I think I just about made it to the first lamp post. It’s my own fault, I’m such a flaming perfectionist when it comes to academic writing – it takes me forever. Still on the plus side I now have some idea just how long this major study is going to take – forever. I’m going to lead such an exciting life over the next few weeks. In an attempt to clear my head Janathon was a short run, thankfully the snow had all but gone, however what was left had started to freeze and after over 18 months as a non- runner I’d forgotten just how slippy some of the paving stones get. Still I remained upright and that’s always a bonus with my track record!!!

Wednezzzzzzday – in other words I’m done in!!!!

So the Netball went by the wayside, unfortunately the downside of working in a Primary school is that the little darlings are all too happy to share every germ, bug and lurgy going. Yet another cold is on the horizon, I’ve spent the majority of the day feeling like I’ve been whacked in the face with a frying pan and foundation stage PE just about finished me off.  Still, I decided to look on the positive side – no netball meant more study time – except after 2 hours of reading mindless waffle, the sofa chair in the study called my name, that was the end of that.

Cycle to work and back done

Uni work abandoned.

My beds calling

Bring it on!!!!!

  

The wonder of waterproofs!!

At last, a longer bike ride, granted it was a long way from the 25+ miles hubby and I used to do, but 14.2 miles is a start and this year I will not be letting Uni or work get in my way ( well that’s the plan!!!). Another plus side to today’s ride was my very dry bottom – despite the copious amounts of mud and huge puddles my shiny new mega waterproof shorts did the trick – for the first time in 9 days my backside was just as dry when I got home as when I left – its only taken 4 pairs to find some that actually work.

My new cycling gear

14.2 miles logged
A short run tomorrow
Bring it on 😊

Wahoo it’s Fridayzzzzz

So I should be sat here working on my assignment but I’m struggling to keep my eyes open never mind  argue a case for the effective utilisation of teaching assistants (yes – my life is really that exciting!!). Thankfully I went for a run as soon as I got home, had I have sat down first I don’t think it would have happened. It was only a short run, but much needed to clear my head after a bout of column rage – no really. Transforming a classroom Into a Greek temple is all well and good until your creative ideas don’t quite go to plan – lets just say we nearly had Greek ruins, it’s a good job I left when I did.

Another run survived

Cycling tomorrow

Bring it on!!

  

Budgie Bother…..

There are some things you don’t need to see at 7 in a morning – a man in overtight speedos is one of them. Just to add to the fun he was sat poolside, in line with my eyeline, and very nearly my hands as I touched the side – Urghh! David Beckham in budgie smugglers I can deal with, some middle aged jelly belly, who should know better – no thanks!!! Still, on the plus side, for the second morning in a row I swam faster than usual.
Swim done
Back to the studying
Bring it onzzzzzzz

Brrrrrrrrrrrrr

Well I was soon awake this morning, with the temperature of the pool I had little choice. It would have been really helpful if someone had actually said ‘we’ve had a power cut – it’s not very warm’ instead of letting me jump in. Still, on the plus side ( there always is one) I swam a whole lot faster than I usually do.
Swim done
Same again tomorrow (but warmer)
Bring it in!!

Busy, Busy, Busy ……

Not quite sure how I failed to miss 2 days blogging, but I suppose working, exams, University and exercise don’t leave much time for anything – hence another short blog!!
Still the exercise has continued, even if I haven’t logged it yet, I will, but not tonight, after a fab but long day at Uni, it’s time to chill with a glass of vino – cheers!!
Lots of swimming, studying and working done
Sleep- in in the morning.
Bring it on!!
