Intervening weeks

Had a christening last weekend for my Nephew which was pretty cool. But with a long drive over and a busy week the opportunity i had for a long run was squandered by having an afternoon nap instead.. We did had a mooch round Hay on wye at the bookshops and bought a few books*.

During last week there was a spot of lunchtime running again, yoga and a gym session first for a fair few weeks! This was dammed good, but i certainly felt that i'd done the workout afterwards. Wifey was at a henna/Mendi night hence having the evening free. Which then lead into the weekends acitivty of an indian wedding.

We'd never been to one before so it was a bit of an eye opener. However, it was really good to see our friend get married and celebrate with her. We had our friends Stig and Tara stay after this and after they'd had the worst journey down involving a broken spring on the motorway and much transportation issues after this. We had a fairly lazy sunday with lunch out, dropped them off at the station for their train home and then had a Bond-Skyfall cinema excusion on sunday night. Fantastic film, i'll not reveal anything but it was bloody great and certainly the best he's starred in.

This week hopefully more of the same, then a few long runs next if all goes to plan.

3 weeks...

since my last confession, erm post.

Sorry about that all i've been rather busy!

Since the 19th i've had a ton of rehearsals, had the contest in Cheltenham (13/24 which was respectable). We're now technically a 3rd section band!

After this some recovery was had and there was a rare weekend at home. We did try to get away for a B&B, but in the end decided to save the cash (and our fav place was booked up!). I didn't get out for any exercise as i've been suffering from a cold so rested.

Last week was a short one as we had friday off to go to Norfolk and help with a friends wedding set up in a local viallge hall. Also stayed with the In-laws for the weekend so it was nice to finally see them, since i've not been up there for a while. During this i washed my car.. and discovered a crack in the windscreen and slightly out of kilter wheels.

So this week is getting the tracking sorted (relatively cheap) and the windscreen replaced (massively expensive). Plus suit dry cleaned, band rehearsal, yoga and then off at the weekend for Nephew's Christening in Clyro, plus seeing the family.

Exercise has still been lacking as i'm struggling with tiredness and apathy..

I always knew Oct would be a busy one, but this is just mad.
