Yaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwnn- The Countdown’s On

So firstly apologies for the lack of blog last night but I was too emotionally drained ( and totally knackered) to even think about writing one. I wasn’t feeling at my best anyway – the Iron infusion side effects were kicking in big style and the sleepless night hadn’t helped. Then there was a day of rehearsing for the leavers production and the mass panic over getting the power point etc finished ……………….I think you get the idea – I was done in.

But as things go ‘It was alright on the night’, the kids were awesome, they sang their hearts out and come the last song (the one I’ve sobbed my way through for the last fortnight!) There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Thankfully I managed to not make a holy show of myself and left the loudest sobs to the parents……………..Till I got home – 24 Hours in A&E ( the tv programme not that I was in A & E) finished me off. Why oh Why I watch these programmes I’ll never know – I’m hopeless. Diy SOS, One born every minute, children’s hospital. They all have the same effect – I am getting better though – when I was pregnant with Jack I used to sob my way through Neighbours……………….

So the countdowns on,  six days till Year Six leave for good (gulp) and the Big Holidays begin (wahoo). But the list of what needs doing before now and then seems to get longer by the hour and the biggest problem about last week of Summer Term is that the kids get in the way. We really need an out of school club for the whole school – any volunteers?

Production Finished

School Trip Tomorrow (2nd attempt)

Bring it on

Pre Race Preparation

So thanks to Janathon, another running first for me. Running the day before a race., something I’ve never considered before. I’ve been round Harrods the day before a race I’ve even cooked pie n peas for 40 people the night before a race (fundraisng for rugby) but Ive never run. Still needs must if I’m to stick to my goal of running every day in January. So out I went, and so short was the run I felt like I was back before I’d  set off. Run done, it was pre- race prep time.

In all honesty I don’t know why I enter races, I only enjoy them once I’ve finished. Before every race I say never again, only to find myself posting another entry form once I get back. Then there’s the pre-race rituals. The same meal the night before (lasgane), same breakfast (weetabix) or the race won’t go to plan. Then there’s the lucky clothing, mass panic this afternoon when I couldn’t find my lucky running pants, panic over now!! So providing the couple of sneezes I’ve done don’t turn into pneumonia, I’m sure all will be fine when I line up for the Brass Monkey at 10:00am tomorrow.

1.34 miles in 10 mins and 52 secs , nice warm up for tomorrows half marathon.

Janathon day 22

Bring it on!
