Project 365 2017 Week 39

Week 39 – three-quarters of the way through the year already! I think I’ve just about got used to it being 2017 and it’s nearly over.

Here’s our week in pictures…

Day 257 – Sunday 24th September – I managed a 12 mile run this morning, my last before next week’s half marathon. I ran the first half of it with my husband, but then he told me to go on without him (did I mention that I’m faster than him?!).

Day 258 – Monday 25th September – for my birthday last week I got almost the entire guinea pig range from Cath Kidston. Can you see why I like them so much?

Day 249 – Tuesday 26th September – back in the middle of July, I said I’d topped 400 miles running in 2017 and it didn’t seem like that much. Having topped 600 miles just over two months later, I think I was right that it wasn’t that much!

Day 250 – Wednesday 27th September – a busy day! We went to the theatre to finalise my daughter’s paperwork for the panto. I had to pick her up from school, then take her to two dance lessons. My younger son was at school until 9.30pm for his school concert and I had to be my husband’s taxi as we still only have one car. I did find time to take a quick look at some of the new street art in Cheltenham. I need to go and look at more of it because it’s amazing. You can see more on my Instagram.

Day 251 – Thursday 28th September – the weather has been very warm over the last few days. I’m loving getting the washing out on the line while I still can. Went to see my son’s school concert in the evening, which I really enjoyed.

Day 252 – Friday 29th September – a very busy day of work. I realised the only photo I took was this one of my Parkrun 50 Tshirt. My daughter and husband ordered theirs today (you can’t get one until you’ve run 50 Parkruns).

Day 253 – Saturday 20th September – an unusual Parkrun for me as it’s the half marathon tomorrow. I was volunteering, rather than running.

  3. Blimey 600 miles is amazing. I hope you do amazingly well tomorrow. I will be cheering you on from up here. How cute is all that guinea pig stuff!! We’ve already started writing 2018 all over the place at work because of projects happening so I feel like 2017 is almost done. Plus mince pies at work mean it’s Xmas for me ;p

  5. The Cath Kidston guinea pig stuff is very cute. You really have upped the miles over the last few months.

    • The guinea pig stuff is gorgeous, isn’t it? I can’t believe how far I’ve run over the past couple of months and it doesn’t seem to have done me any harm!

  6. i have to take issue with how you’ve hung your t shirt on the line, it’s all wrong, lol, it should be pegged upside down and for this reason we can no longer be friends. I’m glad you rectify your other post about ordering 50 park run t shirt. I did wonder what you were going to do with 50 of them

    Post a Reply
    • If it’s any consolation, I do hang my shirts upside down on the line, just not the Tshirts!

  7. Love Cath Kidston, and love those guinea pigs 🙂 So pleased to see that the half marathon went well! That street art is amazing, must go catch up on your instagram to see some more (hate the new algorithm!!).

    • I was so pleased with how well the half marathon went. I need to go and look at some more of the street art and post more pictures! I hate the algorithm too. It just shows me random people and posts from four days ago!

  8. Aww the guinea pig range is super cute! I rarely hang out the washing. I tend to be so behind in the washing and little time I use the tumble dryer. Well done on the running, you look amazing xx

    • Thanks very much, I was so pleased with the run! I hate using the tumble drier and try to only use it for towels and sheets in the winter. For most of the year my washing is hung inside.

    • Thanks very much! I couldn’t believe how many miles I’d run in such a short space of time.

  9. Love the park run 50 t shirts you can get, and even when you can’t run you still want to be involved. I love the Cath Kidston guinea pig/hamster print lol. I love hamsters and still wish it was a hamster print. Maybe they will bring that out next year x

    Post a Reply
    • Well I love guinea pigs and I’m saying those are most definitely guinea pigs! It’s great because you don’t often see guinea pig prints. It made a nice change to be volunteering at Parkrun, but you know I’d much rather run! x
