The cakes went down really well and I managed to raise just over £40 for the British Heart Foundation, so Talisians may be in luck and a 2nd batch may be making an appearance later in the year!!!
The training is also going fairly well, im now well into the running routine and really enjoying it, going running at least twice a week and sometimes three if im feeling particuarly active. Tomorrow I am going to go for the first long walk in my walking boots, aiming to do one of the training walks I did this time last year when preparing for Cancer Research’s Shine event. The walk starts in Solihull and ends in Hatton and is approximately 15 miles, with an amazing country pub at the end – got to have something to keep you going right?
I am particuarly proud of the fact that Ive stayed fairly dedicated -this morning when waking up at 7.30 for my parkrun it was absolutely tipping it down with rain and as I drove out my road I did for a second think about turning around and crawling back into my nice warm bed!! However, I snapped out of it, got myself out there and did the very soggy 5k with about 60 other dedicated runners, jumping over puddles, avoiding muddy patches and pulling my heavily soaking trousers up at every turn!! I didnt get a personal best this week, but I did manage to get exactly the same time as last week – 30 minutes and 54 seconds, which considering the conditions I think is not a bad result!!
