After my own year from hell, I’ve just finished a short break to Paris. Where I have done almost nothing. And am feeling the benefit from that both physically and mentally.
Ho-ho-ho! Merry Christmas!
Time to do a quick stock take and plan the last of this year’s challenges.
There’s been lot’s of running around but naff all running these last two weeks. I didn’t meet my last set of running challenges (fail – sob) and I’m not going to beat myself up. It is what it is.
So, what’s next?
I’ve been away from here for a month. In that time, I moved countries (back in UK), sorted out my sore knees and took a rest from running. With my life now more settled, time to set some new running challenges this week.
Really quick update this week.
Sadly, knee trouble (reckon it’s runner’s knee) meant I’ve taken last week off. I managed one or two runs and then decided rest was best. So, no running really to report.
Secondly, this week I am mostly moving house. I return to the UK and have got a whole week of packing, cleaning and arrangements to make.
Therefore, I’ll be on a short – intentional break – till about 26th October. Till then,
Keep on Going
After a long absence, I’ve been setting myself some new weekly challenges. Let’s review.
Blackmores Sydney Marathon 2014 review. I ran this marathon on September 21st 2014. The marathon is one event in the Sydney Running Festival. A throughly enjoyable experience, here’s my detailed review of the event.
After a long absence, time for a small change in how I approach my running. Last week, I ran the Blackmore’s Sydney Marathon. I got through it (discussed in a later post) and am pleased with my result. This is despite all of the stuff I’ve been through. I’m going to take a short break from running marathons. This is because I am returning to the UK and am about to have my life turned upside down again.
But that doesn’t mean I want to stop running. And that’s why the tweak from Plan of the Week to This Week’s Challenge.
Where have I been?
It’s been mighty quiet round these parts lately. So has my running. What’s been going on? Well, I’ve had a mighty difficult time lately. Life’s burden’s became too much. In this post, I’m going to talk about what happened and how I’ve learned not to feel guilty about not running.
