What a rubbish week. Between not feeling well and rubbish weather, I have been feeling well and truly bleh.
Weekend got off to a good start though, had a lovely dinner with friends and our kiddos on Friday night. Saturday, I spent washing my running kit, tidying the house, nagging my children, all before settling down to a night of Eurovision - didn't the UK do well..(debatable). My actual favourite was the Netherlands, they reminded me of Fleetwood Mac.
It was an early start today - some girlfriends and I were off to a village called 'Dunecht' - it's in Aberdeenshire (definition : lovely Country Estate in the middle of blooming nowhere), (you'll start to see a pattern).
Today marked race No2. of 2014. Today we ran on behalf of Capability Scotland, a Charity which strives to support children and adults with disabilities, we did this in remembrance of my Brother David who had Cerebral Palsy.
I have to say the girls did brilliantly, the two on the right of me achieved personal bests. I however, really struggled this morning. I literally felt like my legs were filled with lead, had a sore tummy and generally felt terrible. The lovely lady to my left, said she felt the same and basically stuck with me throughout the time, though, I have a sneaky suspicion she was just being really lovely.
We finished with 2 mins off our PB from race No1. a fortnight ago - I was quite disappointed, but given the lack of training opportunities, since race no1. not at all surprised.
All in all a great day. It was soggy and boggy, but at least it wasn't snowing!
