Gathering my strength

As I’m sure I’ve mention a few hundred times, I’ve got my first 10km timed race coming up this Sunday, so as my leg is still not feeling right I thought I’d take it a bit easier today! So my Janathon Day 15 contributions are the ‘Morrison’s Big Shop’ and the ‘Clean Laundry – Fold and Put Away’.

With the shopping – this did involve pushing a heavy trolley, carry heavy bags, loading them into the car, unloading them when I got home and then squatting and stretching to put all the items away!!!

Big Shop!
Big Shop!

I had a copious amount of clean washing I’d let gather on the dining room table – so there was the sorting into the kids clothes and our clothes piles, the three trips up and down the stairs and then again the squatting and stretching to put it all away! I did also have to put one of my Pink One’s drawers back together when the from decided it’d just fall off when I pulled it open (don’t know my own strength).

No Wii tonight – shocking I know, and I really missed it instead we decided to sit down and watch a film, once all the clothes were away, and I felt really sad as they killed off a main character and this was after watching one of our favourite American series start a new series yesterday and they killed off a main character in the first episode, which was entirely unnecessary – hopefully I’ll have cheerful news tomorrow of some more exercise!!!

    • Ooo, where are you running? I’m at the Olympic Park (was meant to have been Hyde Park!)
      Good luck! It’s my first timed 10km – I’ll be happy just to finish (and like you said not freeze on the spot)!!! Haha!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚xxx
