    Miles completed this week

    Running - 0

    Commute walking - 10.36 (should have been much more, but I was loaned out to the office closest to home for 4 of my 6 working days!)
    Recreational walking - 3.96 (my partner and I went out to walk around the route for a series of 5k races I'm debating entering next month - in a country park within 10 miles of where I've lived for almost 18 years, and I didn't know it was there. We're now planning to head back out on a few Sundays to explore it in more detail).

    Running - 125.1
    Warm up & Cool down walking - 14.53
    Commute walking - 87.82
    Recreational walking - 159.4

    Total miles for year to date - 386.85
    Target for year to date (based on 1000 miles in year) = 553.43 miles in 202 days.

    Just submitted my evidence for another 5 k. Changed pain meds as my hip is very painful. Just about managing now. Waiting for an appointment for orthopaedic surgeon with a view of being listed for a hip replacement. Hopefully it will improve things.

    Not happy with this week but at least I made it through. Only need about 12km next week to reach my target of 100k for the month and it will also mean I’ve completed the scrabble board. Not looking forward to the heat next week 🥺

    Had a lovely family picnic today at Essex Wildlife Trust Langdon , where they have a Peter Rabbit TRAIL...Was ideal for my two granddaughters (the eldest one visiting from Scotland) , who were amazed to see Peter Rabbit holding their medals and certificates at the end. (I made sure medals were here, by uploading two sets of proof that i did them last month, ready for the two girls to be suprised right there and then, when they finished the trail and picnic ).

    Tallied up my activity from July 2nd to the 20th which came to 47.97 km. This includes some short times on the treadmill which I don't always include in my totals as I'm trying to do most of my fitness activity outside, but sometimes the treadmill helps. I have a busy coming week so I'll see what I can achieve with that but I'm hoping to get back to increasing my distance in August.

    So, I didn’t post last week, so I thought with the retrospective look on it, if give it a bit more detail. Apologies for the long diatribe, I have actually gone into too much detail, feel free to scroll on by..!
    I had a hard fought three miles on Monday, which I had hoped to follow up with a 5 on Tuesday, but the opportunity to get out on the tarmac just wasn't there.
    I wanted to get in that 5 as the week represented an end of an era (no, although my 40th birthday on the Sunday I don’t mean my thirties!)
    For the past couple of years, Kim has taken Iris to the school toddler group on a Wednesday in term time. Practically every week, with only a few that they have missed. For the last year to 18mths I have used that time to go out for a run wherever possible. As they are gone for around 2hrs, I have made Wednesday mornings my long run time (don't do long run Sunday..!) with the school year finishing the following week, this was the last session of toddler group and Iris won't be going back again as she will start nursery in September. I realise that means she is out for 3hrs every morning, but it isn't a specific day that I have locked in to do that longer run on, so won't be as affective at getting me out of the door.
    As this was my last long run Wednesday, I wanted to go a bit longer. I'd love to have done the run I wanted a couple of months back when I ran to my old work and back, clocking 10miles. I wanted to extend that out, running the perimeter of the site to push that out to 12/13miles (at which point I would have detoured a little en route home to make it up to 13.1 - standard!!). Unfortunately I never got around to doing that run, with the week at CubJam, then our holiday, my regular running got interrupted and I scaled back when I got back into it, not really building back up to the bigger distances as yet. BUT, this was my very last toddler group run. I hadn't got out on the Tuesday, hadn't run anything more than 5 or 6 miles for a long time and I wasn't feeling too great either, BUT I was going out and going long(ish) I wanted to run at least 8 if not 10 miles.
    I headed down towards the seafront for a coastal trot. I was feeling really rough and was struggling early on, but I had to push on. My headphones started beeping at me too, so I had a feeling this was going to be a hard run! I followed my usual path around the Ramsgate coastline and although when I got to the cinema I really REALLY wanted to turn down my usual road and head home that way, but I wanted to go longer so I pressed on for my originally planned route through King George VI park to Dumpton. As I headed through the park, at around the 4.5mile mark, my headphones died. 😧
    I hate running without music and still had over 30mins worth of running to do
    I had to keep on keeping on, so I pressed on forward and stuck to my plan. I headed back the same route as my run a couple of weeks back with some double backing on myself to boost the mileage. Although this time I stretched it out more, looping out and around the local shopping centre then home. I actually hit the 10mile mark when I was a few doors away from my house, so it turned out pretty well in the end!

    Second week of the Nike training done, felt weird only doing 1k one day however it was a 5min k as opposed to my usual 7min ks which could be why it wore me out so much! There doesn’t seem to be many actual long runs but then the only training plan I’ve ever used is C25k and that was all about increasing time not distance. Oh well I guess it’s just trust in the app! Am a little worried that Parkrun won’t fit into this app due to the distances they want me to run but we’ll see. Can always squeeze the missing days into the end of the year!

    After a couple of weeks of not doing a lot due to a couple of blisters (diabetic so had to take it easy) managed to get a few 5K’s in this week and back to walking football (have to stop running whilst playing though) today.

    No runs at all this week. Unfortunately life just got in the way. I was busy all day on Monday, had my twins’ 10th birthday Tuesday and then took weds and thurs off work as I had loads to do, so had no time Friday as I was playing catch up at work. So, I’m still yet to post my first run in my 40’s after my Birthday last Sunday. I did run 13 miles the week before, but didn’t post about it as I had a spa day, drinks, dinner out on Friday last week as my birthday treat. I’ll write that up separately now...
    But, onwards and upwards. Need to pull my finger out and post some runs. School broken up for summer now, so daytime running is gonna be much harder for me.. wish me luck!!
