Guys and gals, I have the internet back! Unfortunately my laptop didn’t survive the move so we’ve had to crack open the piggy bank and get me a new one. It’s going to be beans on toast for a while.
So we’re in the new house and the move went well. I have never ever been as stressed as I felt on moving day but everything went well and the house is delightful! It’s a project and there are a lot of things that need changing over the coming months, but it’s great to be able to put our stamp on a house finally. I have my own dressing room and Gary will have his own music room soon once every-thing’s unpacked.
Most importantly it’s quiet and relaxing and warm. And it’s ours.
It was time to get back to the normal routine yesterday and it was back to work for me. It was also our first run in three weeks, after having to put training on hold whilst we moved. I was a little nervous about it to be honest. The weather is dreary but still warm, so I haven’t been able to try out my new cold weather gear yet, but I had my fleece ear warmer headband on to protect my delicate ears! We managed to run just over 2 miles before giving in, and included some walking breaks. It was my first time running in the dark too and I actually quite enjoyed it. Coming to the end of the route, Gary had sprinted ahead leaving me trailing behind and I was struggling. A guy was heading towards me also running and as I passed him he said “well done”. He didn’t say it in a patronising way, but in a genuinely was saying well done. It really helped to spur me on towards the end of my route. I wish I could have said thank you to him, because it was an amazing boost – I might start doing it myself!
So my weekends and evenings will now be full of training for a 10k in 5 weeks and sorting the house out. And I don’t mind one bit. I actually look forward to coming home to this house. And that’s what it’s all about 🙂
