Project 365 2015 Week 42

Day 281 – Sunday 11th October – it’s not a great photo, but I went to Cheltenham Literature Festival in the evening to see Sue Perkins. She was very funny!

Day 282 – Monday 12th October – the coldest walk to school so far this autumn. I love the way the mist hovers above the fields.

Day 283 – Tuesday 13th October – not the most interesting of photos, but in my continued bid to recover from injury and get back to running half marathons, I tested out some orthotic insoles today. Not wanting to overdo it, I just ran 1.8 miles.

Day 284 – Wednesday 14th October – I cracked open the final bit of birthday chocolate. Yes, I’d done pretty well to keep it three weeks, but it was all so rich that even a hardened chocaholic like me could only manage tiny amounts!

Day 285 – Thursday 15th October – I’ve been feeling a bit down about life and work lately. The colours of the trees cheer me up a bit, but I’m not so keen on the colour of the sky!

Day 286 – Friday 16th October – ran four miles today! That’s a really big deal as four miles was when my leg started hurting. It’s the first time I’ve run over three miles for more than two months. (A half marathon is about 17,000 steps, so I’ve still got a long way to go!)

Day 287 – Saturday 17th October – a momentous occasion – all five of us ran Parkrun!

  2. Grrr I literally feel your running pain – I’m hitting four miles when the outer knee niggles kick in. I’ve been trying to do daily stretches and strength and glutes work but still every bloody four miles!! 5k zoom around the block and I’m fine! I’m interested to see how you get on with the inner soles – I’ve read a lot about gait analysis lately and the argument against support shoes so really confused with it all now! Anyhow…well done on the family parkrun – so nice to do that as a family – and the mist is beautiful, I see some lovely views driving to work but can never stop to take a snap! Keep me posted on the ITband x x

    • It’s so frustrating, isn’t it? I definitely will keep you posted! I think the insoles are going to be good for me. Now to see if I can get beyond four miles!

    • Thanks, me too! I am a complete dark chocolate addict. Really hoping I can tackle even longer distances soon 🙂

  3. Love the fact you all went running together, what an amazing photo. I am a hotel chocolat fan, but I detest dark chocolate. Glad your injury is improving and yes it is so chilly x

    • Thanks very much, it really is a relief that the injury is improving! I started eating dark chocolate a few years ago as it’s better for my delicate stomach. Now I wouldn’t eat anything else! x

  9. Love the picture of the 5 of you doing Parkrun together as I know you wanted the whole family to be involved. Well done for running 4 miles too. I think you deserved that Dark Horse chocolate. What a great name for a chocolate bar x

  10. we have had some frosts here this last week, and plenty of foggy starts.
    The autumnal colours really do look better with a blue sky behind them.

    Post a Reply
    • We haven’t had any frost yet and most of the mornings have been grey and boring! The mist and blue skies are so much better 🙂

  11. Su Perkins live? That sounds great. And I love the misty morning photo. How lovely to have the whole family at the parkrun, I would like to start running but I can’t imagine anyone else in my family joining me!

    Post a Reply
    • You never know! I never would have expected my family to run with me a year ago, but suddenly they are 🙂

      Post a Reply
  12. well done of your own and the family running this week. the only way id have chocolate in the house after 3 weeks is if someone else had hidden it well

    Post a Reply
    • Ha ha! That would normally be me too, but this stuff is so rich it can only be eaten in moderation, even by a hardened chocaholic like me!
