It wasn’t the best of weekends to be honest.
A very good friend died at the start of the week.
The hubby has been really ill and understandably grumpy so I was running around after him and getting nowhere.
And work …well I can’t talk much about that here but suffice to say I have this amazing future ahead of me but it’s out of reach. It’s like I’m running towards it but on a treadmill. It doesn’t matter whether I sprint or jog, I get no closer. All I know is that I can’t stop. I feel trapped and hopeless right now and that really affected me at the weekend.
That said I still managed to do plenty with the little one.
She had a birthday party in a soft play on Saturday so I left her to it and went for a run in the sunshine round the local park.
I walked the first bit because I ended up chatting to the hubby on the phone. It was nice to have a run.
I went to look at cars with the little one on Saturday. She chose this one
But I’m looking at downgrading mine and trying to find a cheaper 4x4
On Sunday I watched the marathon with excitement. It was great to watch it on the telly and remember parts of the course and it actually really made me feel great about running it last year. I wore my finisher t-shirt all day!
The little one was going a little stir crazy though so I took her to the park for a while
I even finished the weekend with another 5km run on Sunday evening.
I had calmed down enough by Sunday to enjoy myself a bit. Just in time to get wound up again for Monday morning!
