Sad news........

......personally that is. My one remaining grandparent passed away on monday. She went in her sleep which I guess is how we all want to go. Thus I haven't done much by the way of training this week.

Take care, xxx

Happy Valentines Day! ;¬)

I'm afraid I've been lazy today re:exercising but I think I'm allowed a day off. Although after a long lie-in, we had a nice long stroll to the shops, bought stuff for tonites meal and some suitable beers. I am making good old spag bol. Always a favourite. Theres a rather nice ginger cake I baked lastnight too. I'm sure other people will be doing things much more exiting. Eh? Carry on

There is nothing like....

........a good lunchtime jog! And mine was nothing like one. Yes it was, I'm only joking ;¬) I'm surprised how much I enjoyed it really. I jogged to the PO first to post a letter lol then carried running around the block for 30 minutes. The air is crisp and chilly (no snow or frost) the sky is blue and the sun is peeping out and smiling on the UK today. So a good positve exercising day I think. I love this blogging business, it will be a pity it will slow down after the fun run in May. Of course I intend to keep it. Its amazing how encouraging and motivating it is making me feel just reading other runners blogs. I am so pleased I decided to do this heehee. Of course I can't go for a run without thinking of Starfish* and why I am doing this and that makes me both happy and excited. A huge thank you of appreciation to my fellow bloggers who are following me xxx

.......scuppered my training plans for today. Honest! I had planned to go out for a nice long invigorating jog around the block this afternoon. Just as I was about to though I thought it felt abit more chillier than usual. I brushed back the curtain and saw that it was snowing. Lovely but noooooooooo........I want to go out and run :¬( Anyway I managed to improvise by running up and down stairs X number of times ;¬) Just as good I feel but would have been wise to do warm ups first LOL. xxx

Still..... and it is still going well. In terms of my motivation and enthusiams at any rate lol. I was up bright and early this morning for a long and vigorous swim. I really enjoyed it and have been in a positive happy mood all day. I've baked a lovely chocolate and vanilla marble cake. I think next time I want to make one of these I will experiment and see what a chocolate and strawberry marble cake looks and tastes like. The snow has all gone now and if not mistaken I think we could be in for more soon. Fine by me ;¬) Hope we all have a happy weekend xxx

Rest assured that I haven't been resting ;¬) I have enjoyed early morning vigorous swims and tiring myself out at the gym. Todays exciting news is that its snowing! Well its exciting to me I love snow as I've never seen enough of it. Here is the promised photo of my local leisure centre where all this training is taking place.
