Start of a new schedule (and this time I mean it)

I didn’t do very well with my new training schedule so I’ve started it again, and have stuck diligently to it so far.  All two days of it.  I have also started a new healthier eating regime which means fewer mince pies and crisps and less chocolate, wine and beer.  Eek.

So after doing my weights yesterday and not having any mince pies, today I get up early to go for a two mile run. 

After I get up, I look out of the window and there’s a hot air balloon going past and I wonder who gets a hot air balloon at 7:15am and maybe that’s how countryside people commute and I don’t waste too much time on Facebook and I’m out by 8:20 and before I get to the tree my Garmin says I’ve gone a mile but I can’t have gone a mile as the tree’s a mile away from home and I’m not at the tree yet and I get to the tree and there’s a lot of cars around and I wonder why there’s so many cars and then I think ah, it must be the school run, there’s a school just round the corner and I go round the tree and back the way I came and there’s a van with Accident Exchange on it and I wonder what an accident exchange it, do you swap accidents with people? like I’ll swap you my broken leg for your gouged out eyeball? and as I get to the end of the road there’s a man and a woman with three dogs taking up all the room and I think pull your dog over to the side so I can get past you ignorant twat, I’m not running around you and he doesn’t look like he’s going to pull his dog over but I carry on on the side I’m running on and he does pull his dog over and they’re busy chattering away to each other in that way that old people do and I had told myself I was going to walk when I got to the road but I carry on and I think I’ll stop and walk when my Garmin says I’ve done two miles but if it was out before then maybe it won’t register the two miles properly and so I carry on until I get home.

  • Great, well done. Finding it hard to get back into agaon after Juneathon too and the weird weather isn’t helping.

    Commuting by hot air balloon…sounds lovely!

  • Don’t talk to me about the school run. Some fat woman just shouted out in her Suffolk accent “What’s she doow-en? Shiz just driv past ere foive toimes!”. Yes, well if you and your fat children walked to school instead of being ‘driv’, then I might be able to find a parking space at the Co-op to buy a bottle of woine for to-noight.

  • LOL I could use accident exchange when I have running injuries – I could swap them for something else…brilliant idea!

  • I don’t know the English accents very well but I just had a great giggle reading Emma’s post out loud lol
