It’s been a hectic week, with a lot of extra meetings for school and various other things. Sadly work has been quieter than ever though.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 76 – Sunday 17th March – the day started well with a 16 mile run, yet another longest run ever. Then I went to watch my son’s football and unfortunately they lost again, but at least my son scored. Later in the day, things started going wrong. My eldest was behaving like an absolute brat and couldn’t see it. I was still feeling upset by his thoughtless behaviour 24 hours later. In the meantime, my daughter fell down the stairs while carrying the hoover (something she has been told not to do). The hoover fell onto her arm and we ended up at A&E. It’s not broken, but she’s in a lot of pain.
Day 77 – Monday 18th March – my daughter’s arm felt a bit better. I caught this sunrise first thing. I don’t think there was anything else worth reporting all day.
Day 78 – Tuesday 19th March – I’ve been feeling a bit down for the last few days, due to my eldest’s silly behaviour and also my lack of work. I had a bit more work today and it really made a huge difference to my mood. Spring officially starts tomorrow (although in my book it started on 1st March) and my magnolia tree is looking beautiful. I had a meeting for each of my boys in the evening.
Day 79 – Wednesday 20th March – normal service is resumed on the work front, with nothing! In the afternoon I went to my son’s school to pick up his mock A Level results. Marathon training is a six days a week thing. Wednesday is the worst day of the week for me, because I have to do an hour of body conditioning. I find it both boring and painful, but it must be doing me good, right?
Day 80 – Thursday 21st March – another quiet day of work. Thursday evenings are always a rush as I go to a tap dance class where my daughter does her ballet. I only have a few minutes to take her home and get back for my own class. I’m still as crap as ever at tap dancing.
Day 81 – Friday 22nd March – my eldest had a school trip and had to be at school at 6.45am, luckily my husband took him! I had zero work again, then only my younger son got home from school at normal time. The other two needed picking up from different places at the same time, so my younger son agreed to walk to meet his sister. It was a three mile walk in total for him, I was so impressed! This was my lunch today. Us vegetarians struggle to get enough protein, which can be a problem when you’re training for a marathon six days a week.
Day 82 – Saturday 23rd March – my husband and I ran Worcester parkrun for the first time, which was very nice. Then we went to watch my son play football in Worcester – the last school football match of the season. Sadly they lost again, but he scored a really good goal.
