The April Lull


The April Lull, AKA over-long Easter school holidays has struck again and I find myself hassled and finding it difficult to find time to run, blog or even read other blogs with the distraction of having under occupied teenagers under my feet while having to keep all the other balls in the air!

However, worry not, because this years lull has not been as bad as last year when I only ran 27 miles and didn’t even manage to blog once! So far I’ve plodded out 45 miles and this is my second blog! Yay! My saviour this year has been Viceathon which skillfully works with my built-in guilt to keep me running (even when it would be a lot easier not to bother to try to fit it in) and thinking twice every time I’m about to have a glass of wine.

I am typically living beyond my means having been in debt all Viceathon (blame the school holidays and visitors for leading me astray) and even after running 9 soggy miles this afternoon (thunderstorm cancelled the last mile) I am heading off for the weekend 8 glasses of wine/miles in debt! Might be some serious mileage going on next week!

Just as well because my next step is to catch up with the fact that it’s less than 6 weeks until the Bupa London 10,000m and knuckle down to some serious PB chasing training ….

  1. Get going with the training for the Bupa 10k! 🙂 I am also chasing a PR during that race. Good luck to you!

  2. When you write that you have run 45 miles it seems amazing! so take heart – plodding along is good 🙂

  3. Am slightly gutted I’m not doing BUPA again this year – but looking forward to cheering you all on! Still 5 days to go to get out of debt!
