I must confess, I did go against advice as far as running+my ankle goes. I couldn’t help it! My ankle felt really good this morning, as did my resolve! I was all set to just use the exercise bike+weights at the gym. But this sight was just too darn tempting:
Okay, normally I am not a treadmill fan. But when you are desperate because everywhere around you is covered in a thick sheet of ice, you do what you have to! Anyway, I did speed intervals (12mph—>8mph—>12mph etc) for just 10 minutes, as I didn’t want to overdo it! But my ankle felt fine! Yay!
Oh, and breakfast was quite a typical Emma screw-up. Was going for 3/4 cup of oats as usual, and thought I was using three scoops out of my 1/4 cup, but it turned out I’d used my 1/3 cup! So ended up with a full cup of oats!
Typical! I thought it looked like a lot of oats! So this made for one filling breakfast! Kept me going right until lunch!
And I could no longer resist. I had to do it:
I’m thinking of trying to get a charity place for it, when registration opens. I know how hard this is to get, and then you’ve got the extra worry of trying to reach the agreed amount for fundraising even if you do get a charity place, but do you think this is a good idea? Have you ever run as part of a charity team in a race, or do you know anyone who has? If you haven’t, would you consider doing it?
This has been a stressy week for me- and tomorrow’s going to be no exception! But hopefully I’ll get some therapeutic baking done in the evening! If you’re having a tough week too, then just remember like I am that it’s almost the weekend! And just 17 days until Christmas! So I hope you guys have a great and not-too-stressful remainder of the week!
