I almost forgot to post my regular Monday blog post! But, I did remember 😉
How’s your January doing? I’m a little ahead of myself – my spring cleaning is well under way. I spent Saturday clearing out, cleaning and organising: I now have four large bags for the charity shop, a bag of extra rubbish and a whole lot of tidiness 🙂
On Sunday, I spent a lot of the day shred, shred. shredding. I’ve already gone as paperless as possible in work, and so that’s me now virtually paper-free at home, too. Any important documents are all scanned as they arrive, and saved on both the hard drive and cloud. It’s a great feeling!
As for running, well, meh. Tomorrow. I’ll get back to it tomorrow. Promise!
What an eventful weekend!
My brother Michael’s 30th Birthday celebrations had to be postponed due to the nasty weather, so we had an impromptu night of steak ‘n’ wine and vinyl LPs instead.
@TheWelshWookie had a trip to minor injuries (it’s ok, he’s fine) as did my brother Ants- must be in the name!
We then had a Taken marathon, and a very successful trip to IKEA too.
Phew! I’m back at work for a rest!
Given the state of our pavements, a run is impossible tonight: they are covered in thick, glassy, treacherous ice 😦
There’s only one person I could possibly quote today:
Have you survived being battered and blown about this weekend? We have. Part of our fence came down, but given the storm force winds. I’m ok with that 🙂
How’s your running going? Mine has stalled a little- again- but I’m back on track! It’s two steps forward here at the moment!
This time last year, I was in Final Wedding Planning mode: by contrast, I’ve been planning some home decorating over the coming weekends. Bet @TheWelshWookie can’t wait!
Here’s today’s motivation:
How are your New Year health resolutions going? Do you make any?
I don’t make specific resolutions, but I do enjoy refocusing and re establishing routines after the festive season.
And my first workout of Jantastic is under my belt- Woo Hoo!
Saturday was my first run in a while and, boy, did I struggle- I felt like an old lady, huffing and puffing (and a little walking) my way through a short two mile run. Tonight I mixed it up a little, with some exercise bike and strength work.
Now I’m basking in post-exercise endorphins, and plotting my runs for the year. I’ve signed up for two so far: the Mull of Kintyre half marathon which, as ever, sold out within a couple of hours! It’s been voted the best run in the UK by Runner’s World many times. And I’ve also scheduled in my postponed GNR which I’m definitely planning to do in 2015.
Here’s something that suits my mood today:
