Day 14/30 – To Tesco and beyond…

Some of yesterday’s grumpiness has lifted, I suspect partly because I opted out of a morning run today. This gave me a whole 37 hours of rest between runs. Woo and indeed hoo!

Monday night is big shop night, so while Ginge drove home and put the tea on, I ran the three miles back. To speed up the process (I was starving), I shopped with running kit hidden under jeans and fleece. If nothing else, I was toasty warm while we selected our dairy products – even if it did end with a certain amount of blushing and an interesting set footprints on the dashboard as I shimmied out of my jeans…..

I can’t believe it’s that time of year, but Juneathon is nearly upon us. Last year I adopted a pretty flexible approach and used it as a chance to try new stuff (an aerobics class, driving range, crown green bowling…), but this year I thought “Let’s do this properly. Run every day, even if it’s just 20minutes”.  I thought that, signed myself up via the medium of JogBlog and momentarily felt smug.

The smugness lasted til I mentioned my plan to husband, who kindly pointed out that we’re going on our jollies a week earlier this year so the final week of Juneathon will be spent in a tent in Kent. This may prove interesting.

In other news, I had a lovely run along the canal tonight – sun shining, little duckies swimming, magic horses standing on the bridge. Mind you, I did manage a bit of thickery by setting off with my sunglasses (again) and having to tuck them into my bra. Had I not tucked them into my bra  it might have prevented a  fly from making a crash landing in my eye. No lasting blindness, but I think the chap I ran past while winking madly might still be disturbed.
