Project 365 2017 Week 35

It’s the final full week of the summer holidays. I feel like the holidays have been a mixed bag. We’ve done some lovely things, including going to Padstow, but also an awful lot of staying at home doing nothing. That’s pretty much what we’ve done this week too.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 239 – Sunday 27th August – I spent ages yesterday cleaning and filling the paddling pool. As I always have a cold bath to help my recovery after a long run, I thought I’d use the paddling pool rather than the bath. It was very pleasant!

Day 240 – Monday 28th August – my niece and nephew came round to play in the paddling pool and throw water bombs. It was great fun, but my daughter moaned that she hadn’t been out all day. So we went for a quick evening walk in Gloucester.

Day 241 – Tuesday 29th August – what a difference a day makes! After the hot, sunny weekend, the cold, grey, damp weather was back. At least the sunrise was pretty.

Day 242 – Wednesday 30th August – a bit of a miserable day with the colder weather and a last minute change of plans. My daughter has been working on tidying her bedroom (a BIG job) and has made this display of special things – medals from her ballet exams, medals for taking part in her ballet school’s choreography show, her trophy for honesty in sport, her medal for winning a quiz against other schools, her prefect badge and a gift from her best friend.

Day 243 – Thursday 31st August – I ran rather a long way in August! I ran 95 miles this month, in training for my half marathon on 1st October, taking me up to 522 miles for the year. I started recording my mileage in January 2016 and that is by far the furthest I’ve run in a month.

Day 244 – Friday 1st September – my daughter made a small list (definitely NOT a bucket list) of things she would like do over the holidays, but we hadn’t managed to do many of them. So today we ticked another one off when I took her climbing. She absolutely loved it.

Day 245 – Saturday 2nd September – a big day for my daughter – her 50th Parkrun! It was lovely to hear her name read out at the start of the run.

  1. Well done on your daughters park run achievement and for climbing the wall, don’t think I could do that. Gloucester – somewhere else I’ve never been to, although if life had worked out differently I’d have been living there aged 15 #365

    • Thanks very much! I’m very proud of my daughter. There’s no way I could have climbed that wall! You haven’t missed much by not going to Gloucester! I used to work there, but I don’t miss it in the slightest.

  3. Paddling pool to relax after all that running sounds lovely. So lucky you got the good weather. Well done to your daughter for her 50th run too. I don’t enjoy running but I love rock climbing! #365

    • We were very lucky with the weather! I’ve never tried running, but suspect I would be rubbish at it! My daughter did very well though.

  5. Wow, 50 runs. Did she have to run with the balloon?

    Well done on your running too.I’m always in awe of anyone who does because I certainly don’t.

    • Thanks very much, I enjoy running more and more these days! It was her choice to run with the balloon. She didn’t want too much cheering, but she wanted to let people know she’d made it to 50!

    • They definitely did! I could really see that she was a ballet dancer as she climbed! When you spend as much time dancing as she does, it takes over every aspect of your life!

  7. Sounds like a great end to the holidays. I know from personal experience how well she did with that wall. Did you get her the chalk for her hands too?

    Post a Reply
    • Thanks very much. We didn’t get chalk! She did four different activities and had half an hour on each.

  8. Huge well done to your daughter for her 50th park run, that is amazing. Love the picture on the climbing wall too. Katie went to a similar one with scouts last night and climbed for over 2 hours. She was shattered when she came back x

    • Thanks very much, I’m very proud of my daughter for reaching the 50th Parkrun. Over two hours of climbing is impressive, no wonder Katie was exhausted! My daughter had arm ache for two days afterwards. x

    My eldest got a chance to go climbing this summer holidays too and she loved it.

    The change in the weather came suddenly didn’t it!?

    • The change in the weather was so dramatic! Thanks very much, I’m very proud of my daughter! Glad your daughter enjoyed climbing too. I’m sure we will be back at the climbing centre soon!

    The paddling pool sounds a great way to cool off.
