Feeling pretty well recovered from Sunday’s marathon. Ran 12 miles yesterday morning, and this morning did a kettlebells class, followed by some 800m efforts.
Met our cat sitter for a coffee mid-morning, and now working from home before going to a church do this evening.

All in all I had a pretty good marathon yesterday – ran the first 3/4 of the race pretty fast and strong, but really flagged towards the end. Managed 3:30 though, which I’m happy with and also managed to be first lady, which was a nice Birthday bonus.
Unfortunately, post-race I got terrible stomach cramps, so the planned Birthday curry didn’t happen, in fact I spent most of the afternoon curled up in a foetal position in bed. Feeling much better now though.
Went for an easy swim this morning to loosen up the tired muscles, and now on my way to a work meeting.

Tomorrow is my Birthday, it’s also the day I’m running my first marathon in three years, so met some friends for a lovely Birthday/carb loading meal! Feeling very full now.

This morning I did my final long run before the marathon next Sunday. Then drove down to Brighton to go to my friends’ fireworks party, and staying over tonight – planning to watch a couple of Harry Potter films in our pyjamas tomorrow!

I’m on my way into the office this morning, but this evening I’m off to see Dave Gorman’s new show -I love that guy, he’s absolutely hilarious!
It’s chilly outside, my office temperature is completely unpredictable, and it’s likely to be hot at the show tonight under the studio lights, so I’ve gone for layers – wearing the new Birthday trousers again!

Today I’m wearing a navy top and trousers to meet my church group for lunch; however, as with yesterday, the navy has come out looking black in the photo. I was running late, so didn’t have time to mess around with different locations and angles, so you’ll just have to take my word for it!

This morning I did my final 22 mile run before my first marathon in 2 weeks. Legs felt great, in fact I felt as though I could have kept going, but the pain in my shoulder was almost intolerable – I’m convinced I’ve trapped a nerve; I had to stop a few times to stretch it and it was “take your breath away, scream out loud” kind of pain. Think it’s time for a trip to the GP for some drugs!
I treated myself to a fancy new coat a few weeks ago – today it was finally cold enough to wear it!
