On the one hand, it seems I've done quite well this week as I've managed to either run or cycle everyday except Saturday (rest day), and also squeezed in a bit of swimming, walking and stretches. Closer inspection of the facts however, reveals a less athletic story - my longest run was 6 miles; I did 3 runs of less than 3 miles; the bike ride lasted only 40 mins and I did more playing with the kids in the pool than actual swimming.
Still, at least I'm getting my body used to exercise. Next week I'm planning a long run of about 10 miles and shorter runs of no less than 3 miles. The issue as always, is time. My diary's pretty full over the next few days with playdates for Robbie, a nursery meeting, the car's MOT etc etc...
Anyway, I now have a new motivation boost in the form of a new running skirt! I'd never heard of such a thing, ignorantly and boringly dressing in shorts and long running tights, until I started blogging and saw runners wearing these cool outfits. As a reward to myself after the marathon, I finally bought one online and it arrived last week. With my new t-shirt, it's the most stylish I've ever looked while running (that's not saying much though). Ok, so it's perhaps a tad too short, and I'd like to tone up my thighs a bit, but it's not as if I'll be wearing it to work. Not until I get a suntan, anyway.
