Sorry for radio silence this week, it was the last week of school before our break and I've been so physically and mentally exhausted there has been no spare energy for anything else. To be honest I'm not sure who has been more tired this week, me or the kids!
Following last weeks divet problem I've had a week off running (boo). However, I broke that on Wednesday and went out and did week 3, run 3 with no problems. Well, the heat was killer, but my ankle was fine. We're currently experiencing an actual summer and it's sending the whole country dolally. Every day this week temperatures have been in the 20s (I live in the North West, its much hotter down South). I imagine some of you are wondering what is so spectacular about 23'C. To put it into perspective, normally we consider it an OK summer with highs of 16'C, and summers with temperatures of 12'C are fairly common. So to have Summer with actual heat is bizarre. Also it hasn't rained for over a week!!!! So when I went for my run at 7pm and it was still 20'C you can imagine the shock, also how hot it felt.
On the other hand the scenery was spectacular:
I also had my official weigh in last night, down 1.5lbs to 196. Gutted it wasn't more, I've been on form with my diet this past week. But a loss is a loss.
How's your week been? Anyone else hot?
