It’s been a warm and sunny week, I’ve had a decent amount of work and my son has started his A Levels!
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 139 – Sunday 19th May – my husband ran Hackney half marathon, while the rest of us stayed at home. I went for an eight mile run, then my daughter and I gave the guinea pigs a bath.
Day 140 – Monday 20th May – my son’s first day home of revising for his A Levels. I had a lot of work on, so we didn’t see much of each other during the day. I took this photo from my bedroom window at sunset.
Day 141 – Tuesday 21st May – despite having left school, my son actually went to school all day today for revision lessons. After all those weeks of running slower than usual for marathon training, I was pleased to do a run at my old pace. I had a decent amount of work and took this photo on my afternoon walk.
Day 142 – Wednesday 22nd May – my son had his first A Level exam – the first of his three geography papers. He was pleased with how it went. Here’s hoping his other eight exams go as well.
Day 143 – Thursday 23rd May – my next half marathon, in three weeks, includes some pretty big hills. So I decided to do some hill training by running up and down a long, steep road. It was also my hottest run of the year so far, as this photo shows.
Day 144 – Friday 24th May – my son had his second A Level, which he said went well. Exams suit him better than schoolwork throughout the year, so I’m hoping he does well. It was another lovely hot, sunny day. It’s particularly good when sun coincides with sheet washing day!
Day 145 – Saturday 25th May – a very hot morning for parkrun, but that was good. It was my second one back to running at normal pace and I knocked a few seconds off from last week. My daughter is running with her friend every week and they’re aiming to get down to 28 minutes in a few weeks’ time.
