It’s a public holiday here, and it’s lovely to be off on a Monday for a change!
I’ve had a house full of guests this weekend, and it’s been great fun. We’ve went to the beach, to soft play, to a live CD launch, played football, eaten lots and had some vino too. We even toasted marshmallows on an open fire, in the pitch dark!
Yesterday was the Loch Ness Marathon. And I did feel sad that I wasn’t taking part, but that’s life, isn’t it? There’s always next year 🙂
Here’s my self-motivation for this week; I hope it helps you too 😉
So, it may still be January, and freezing outside for many of you. But I’m already looking towards late summer!
Already, I have my summer holidays all authorised at work, so I can now look forward to a few trips. 🙂
I’ve also been mooching around various running sites, lining up potential races.
So far, I’ve entered the ballot for places in the Great North Run:
I watched last year’s race, wishing I was there! I know it’s always over subscribed, so I’ll just have to wait and see if I’m lucky 😉
I’m also still considering the Loch Ness Marathon, and I am definitely leaning towards entering it…. I just haven’t actually committed to it….. yet!
Back in the present, this evening I’ve done my plank-a-day, my squat challenge and some rowing. Gosh, it feels great to be back to it!
Have you signed up for any late summer races yet?
