All Dressed up And Nowhere To Go...

 Can guarantee when the kids are off school and you want to do fun thing's the weather is always miserable!!

This week it's been very foggy, rainy and dull so yesterday was the first day we ventured out. We had planned a special of breakfast out and a fun trip to the cinema. I should have known it was going to go wrong,  and we (should have stayed home to played fun dance games) when the breakfasts turned up cold and burnt.

Not to dampen the morning off we went to the pictures, just as we entered there was and announcement... Sold out for this showing ...Great!! After this we walked home in the cold damp air and fed up .Even more reason for me to tucked into some more chocolate bars all day!!. I'm sure I wont be able to run by the end of half term!!

  •  Dress - Matalan
  •  Belt - Primark
  •  Cape - Last week from Charity shop
  • Legging- Lytess

I first started running in 2004......

I've never been one for exercise but after having 3 children I decided to start running and try to get fit.I trained hard for my first race which was the Great Manchester 10k run on the 23rd of May 2004.I decided to do the race to raise money for charity and the one I picked was Cancer research.I reaached £210-00 which I was very pleased with and the race was one of the hardest things I have ever done...

Soon after this I took another year out to have my 4th child. I started training again in September 2005 for my 2nd 10k race on the 6th of May 2006 Rother-Vally a 2 lap course, this one I finished in 1hour,41sec....

I was so tired out through this race I said to my husband "I never want to run again".....
For some strange reason I carried on running and the 29th of October 2006 I did my first Half Marathon The Worksop one and even though my legs went at the time I was pleased with my time 2 h 18.02...

A lot has change since then and I always surprise myself that I carried on running and did'nt give in when the going got tough (and there is alway tough day's ) but nothing has change in my training I still work as hard as I did then just a bit faster now....
