Time to start running…

Apologises about the radio silence recently, I’ve been busy with work but most importantly I’ve been on holiday in Rome.

It was amazing, I only went for 4 nights but we did so much, it’s such a beautiful city. As a complete history nerd, particularly when it comes to ancient history, I loved it. Especially because of all the ruins and replicators of Geek statues, I knew they had some but wasn’t expecting so much of it and in such good condition.

It was just wonderful and that’s not to even mention the food. Ah, the food! it was divine. I ate so much, but you know what they say when in Rome…. I had to try real pizza and gelato. It would have been criminal not to. I just fear it’s ruined having ice cream and pizza back home for me now. We did so much walking as well, it’s quite a small city (I was initially thinking it would be as far spread as London, but how wrong I was) so we walked everywhere, most days it was around 8/9 miles, frankly I’m not surprised I ended up starving every day.

But before we went I had so much happening at work, that things just got a bit behind, however, I’m back now. Things are still hectic at work, but I’m going to ensure I keep on top of everything (fingers crossed!)

Anyway, back home and back to a slight shock realisation. Just before my holiday I signed up for a 10k. I kept thinking, if I’m not careful, it’ll be a resolution i keep putting off and then have to do it in October when it’s starting to get cold and wet and that really isn’t what I want to do. So I’m doing it round Chatsworth in Derbyshire, which is a gorgeous stately home and just beautiful (slightly hilly) gardens.

This is on the 1st May, which is less than 90 days away. Eek! I went for a run on Saturday to get back into it following in from my holiday but this is the only workout I’ve done all week. Work has been ramping up a bit slightly and I’m starting to slightly regret the timing of everything, but I do find running in the evening helps to clear my head after a long day at work, I just don’t feel comfortable running in the dark at night so try to go before sunset (well before dark as you normally have about 10/20 minutes from official sunset before it goes dark). I’ve also said that I’d help fundraise for the charity that put the event on as I thought that would help ensure I stick to it and don’t end up thinking ‘Oh I haven’t been able to train for it, so I just won’t go’. I don’t really have a target in mind at the moment, but I thinking anything would be amazing.

But I just wanted to give an update and didn’t want anything thinking I’ve just given or forgotten, that is not the case at all! I’m also starting to decide on my new recipes to try at the weekend so there will be a new post to follow shortly, promise!
