So long fair well!

Friday the optician decided they wanted to see me before the procedure to check my eyesight had not changed. All weekend I have lived with the possibility that they might well delay the op if they thought it was necessary. I was hugely disappointed to get this call on Friday, as so ready to have it done. Fortunately went along today and was given the all clear hip hip hooray!

This will mean

No more wearing contacts

  • No more agony when dirt gets underneath them
  • No more having to leave a beach on a windy day as eyes are streaming
  • No more cleaning, soaking and contact solution
  • No more spending hours looking for them when drop them on the floor
  • No more taking the sink apart to rescue one from the u bend
  • No more removing them before bed
  • No more waking up and remembering I have not removed them before bed
  • No more direct debit to Boots

Goodbye contact lenses

This will also mean

No More glasses

  • No more cleaning them constantly
  • No more peering through them or putting them on my head  so I can read
  • No more pushing them up my nose as really don’t fit
  • No more wonky eyes as really don’t fit
  • No more getting stuck in my jumper as forget to remove them when undressing
  • No more asking madam to find them as cant see where I have put them
  • No more steaming up in the bathroom
  • No more steaming up when opening the oven or dishwasher
  • No more steaming up when coming in from a run
  • No more steaming up when drinking tea
  • No more cursing when don’t put lenses in and it rains
  • No more having to wear contacts in the summer so can wear sunglasses, cool
  • No more spending hours trying on glasses in Boots, useless activity as cant see what I look like anyway unless have glasses on
  • No more spending fortune on glasses

After 30 years GOODBYE GLASSES

Almost forgot this blog is meant to be about running! Sorry! Am just so excited!Today was my last run of my extended Janathon. This morning I did an uneventful 4.96 mile. (Making it a total of 205 2011 miles) Saw one other runner, gave him a cheery ‘morning’, he jumped out of his skin and grunted something back. Miserable git.  He wasn’t wearing anything high vis, he is lucky I saw him at all, what’s more he was old enough to know better. Bah. So thats it for a week am really hope I don’t replace running with eating, won’t be blogging either unless I can lay my hands on a Braille keyboard. So all you Janathon bloggers keep running and blogging will catch up with you at the end of the week



About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

So Hi!! lovely Essex type hubby, please give Shaz a big hug to say yay no more glasses! You’re not missing much as I’ve not added any posts since Saturday – am nursing a very sore throat and can barely breathe normally so missed running club booo!
