Mrs Blobby's Blog Hols
You might be picking up that I'm feeling a tad guilty after neglecting my blog this week. Life has just been too hectic! How do I find the time to work!? After a nice and easy ramble around Riffa Woods and a spot of lunch chez Jamil P on Monday, M & I made the trip to Nelson for our weekly VO2 session on Tuesday. The session was 8x800m and felt tough in the usual Lancs wind and rain but we stuck to the plan and managed to squeeze out pretty even times; all the reps were nicely within a couple of seconds of each other despite the painfully short 90 secs recovery. By the evening I felt I'd earned the massive blow-out curry, our second social in as many days in the charming company of Mark I. I ate enough for the three of us but then well and truly paid for it all evening with birthing pains into the wee hours.
So today, an easy 5 near home helped to quieten the curry hangover before a trip to Maggie for a (not very relaxing but much needed) leg massage and then coffee and cake with another running pal in Guiseley, Julian M. A lovely couple of hours spent it was too. But where will my gluttony end...? We have two more dinners lined up with friends before this weekend. I'm gonna have to diet like crazy from Saturday if I've any hope of squeezing into my running shorts without cutting off a blood supply. I've grown a second chin and third belly in 72 hours. Lots of running next week is my only chance.
