Ok, I need to update! Am falling behind!

Sunday: was tempted to run but decided to be sensible so instead did a couple of hours of gardening.

Yesterday - nothing other than quite a lot of walking.

Today - really good strength workout at the gym - best for a couple of weeks.

Letter to mum is almost written - in fact I'm going to go add a couple more paragraphs now and then post it on the way home.

Did Pilates core exercises and calf-strengthening exercises st home last night.

Decluttering continues.

my lungs were burning and I thought I was going to throw up at one point. It was excellent!

 

"The contradiciton is strong with this one." :D

 

Haha, great that you got in a super workout!

Woo. Bent out of shape today by, variously:

Big row with husband last night, followed by lots of heavy conversation this evening

Grievous lack of sleep

Very busy and stressful day at work, which had to be interrupted to go buy new dance leggings and ballet shoes with ds2

Upset stomach.

Anyway I needed a rest day after yesterday and Tuesday workouts. Everything hurts, arms, shoulders, back, abs, glutes, hamstrings...

So only a little bit of walking today and some consolation beer this evening.

Tomorrow is another day.

A beer well earned.  Sorry for your day (and previous night).

Urgh, heavy conversations that interfere with well-earned rest time... not my favourite either. Plus work stress. Double urgh.

 

At least it is weekend, and I do hope for you that there will be peace and recuperation. And maybe just another beer.

 

The park workout sounds like it was really a lot of fun! :)

The park workout was a huge amount of fun.  I think my trainer enjoyed it too, lol.  

 

Did 3.5k this morning, almost all running, just a little bit of walking at the end.  I'm happy with my progress.  Will try and run non-stop for something over 20 mins this weekend.  I am very slow at the moment but that's not really an issue for now.  If I can run non-stop for over 20 mins, I will feel that 5k is within my grasp on this challenge.

That looks gorgeous, and where is all the litter I remember from London?  It's been raining loads here, far too wet to go out for a run if you wear glasses, that is my best excuse and I'm sticking to it.

I hope conversations have lightened up for you now, all that is grim grim grim.

Pretty picture! Though I cannot say that "London" would be the first what comes to my mind looking at it. The road makes me want to put my barefoot runners on and just start running… seems like a very inviting trail!

 

How is your Saturday? Spat with husband has evened out, I hope?

Talking In Bed
 
Talking in bed ought to be easiest,
Lying together there goes back so far,
An emblem of two people being honest.
Yet more and more time passes silently.
Outside, the wind's incomplete unrest
Builds and disperses clouds in the sky,
And dark towns heap up on the horizon.
None of this cares for us. Nothing shows why
At this unique distance from isolation
It becomes still more difficult to find
Words at once true and kind,
Or not untrue and not unkind.
