When hubby heard tonight that I had not blogged since June he suggested everyone might think I am dead, I’m not!
After June I had no desire to write a blog so to steal a phrase from Paige I have had a blogcation, but unlike Paige I have not been knitting wonderful things (love the yellow flowery one by the way!), or sewing a large anorak, I have been working, working and more working with very little running.
June was a quiet month for me work wise, but then July hit and it has been the busiest I have known it in the 2 and a half years I have been doing it. Work life balance became unbalanced, running was shelved. Working from home is great BUT not being able to get away from it is a major disadvantage. Going out for a run was just not possible, not only because of the time restraint but also because I knew once I was out there I would just be thinking about all the work that awaited and needed to be done.
However I do see a light at the end of the tunnel, three days to work this week (and nights and early mornings) and then I am off for 6 weeks (permission to hate me granted!). Although I feel I will be doing a spot of work at times to help out.
Just as well I have the summer off. I have two half marathons I need to train for and if this mornings parkrun is anything to go by I need to put in some serious miles. After 1.5 miles my legs gave up, not a great sign!
So that’s it, I am here, I am alive, I shall be blogging more and I will be running more starting tomorrow with a long run.
