The title of today’s post is a little deceptive. I feel like I’ve been completely run off my feet recently: mostly at work, but also in my down time, what with having a wedding to plan!
But that means that my running has taken a back seat this week, and I’m missing it! To be honest, as my training for the Madrid RnR half doesn’t begin properly until early February, this busyness has come at a very convenient time 😉
I’m excited to share some of the wedding details with you (don’t worry, I’ll warn anyone not interested, so that they can avoid the posts) but it’ll have to wait a few more days. I’m planning on getting the invites out early next week so, all will be revealed after then!
In the mean time, I’m going to head upstairs to the treadmill to say ‘hi!’ to it with a short run. No doubt that after a few minutes I’ll wonder why the heck I was missing it! 😮
How’s your week going? Are you having a busy or a quiet one? Have you missed any workouts?
2. I have some Christmas cross stitch projects that I’ve only just started: I’m running late with these 😮
3. I have Steven King’s Doctor Sleep to finish reading.
4. I have Spanish revision to do.
I took a beginner’s Spanish class in the spring, and I recently received notification that they are running a ‘post-beginners’ class. Naturally, I signed up! It is conducted by video conference, so I travel to Argyll College in Lochgilphead where I am linked in with students from Campbeltown, Oban, Dunoon and Rothesay. It’s an interesting way to learn! So, this evening I’m dusting off my notes from the beginner’s course, and practicing my basic pronunciation.
Any help or tips on learning the lingo are appreciated! 😉
By the time you read this, I’ll be on my way to Center Parcs in the Lake District with my sis, soon-to-be-sis-in-law, her two fab sis’s and her wonderful friends for a weekend of fun, food, dancing and laughing. Here’s where we’re off to:
I’m sure we’ll have the occasional beverage or three. Three thousand. Maybe.
My running gear and trainers are packed. Not sure if I’ll have much opportunity for blogging, I don’t know if I’l have wifi, or mobile signal, so we’ll see.
If not, I’ll see you on the other side of the weekend: have a lovey weekend, all! 😀
I’ve got a cold, and I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself, so we’re repeating the movie marathon from a fortnight ago. OK, when I say repeating, I don’t mean the same movies…. I’m sure you know what I mean!
Since we have the Great Scottish Run in two week’s time; Cowalfest 5K trail run in three weeks, and the Zombie Night Run in four weeks, so this is really our last chance to chill out for some time.
Today, it’s been about:
Grown Ups 2
A Good Day to Die Hard
Cider and Jaffa Cakes. That’s not a movie; that’s the accompaniments… 😉
So, no running today. We’ll definitely be out there tomorrow, though… even with a cold. Have a lovely Saturday night, folks!
I have a question for you: do you find that people around you tend to go a bit, well, loopy during a full moon?
If you’ve had a couple of days like I’ve had, you might be asking this very same question!
I’ve just found out that today’s full moon is a harvest moon: the full moon closest to the autumn equinox. I have no idea if that has any ‘meaning’ or ‘significance’, but I’m happy to have an excuse to blame all of my problems and craziness on! 😉
I’ve had two super-long working days, so haven’t had a chance to run: back on it tomorrow, though!
