running blog



My rather brief blog posts are because I’ve got the attention span of a gnat at the moment. (Apologies to gnats). This is entiiry due to the fact that both sons are in the middle of exams. (GCSEs and A levels) which is not too much of a problem in itself but it means that apart from going off to sit a paper for an hour or two a few days a week they are at home.  

Yes, both sons home. Home full time.  Home for lunch. Home for cups of tea. Home for ‘Mum, is there any food?’ Home for ‘revision’ (if that really can be achieved while simultaneously  being on skype with your mates, watching a film on the other pc screen and playing guitar).  

So it’s not supprising that I’m finding it a little hard to get on with my own work, chores, to-do list and stuff.  I just clear the decks and load all the mugs and plates into the dishwasher and settle down to start when another distraction comes along. Grrrr!

There is a silver lining. I might be behind on things and my blog posts written in a rush but my running is benefitting.  I may not have the  ‘head space’ to work effectively but escaping out the door for a bit of time on my own to run has become something I look forward to and enjoy!  

Juneathon day 4, my ‘get back to running’ mini run-streak continues. 

3 mile, easy morning run around the block.
