Day 493 & 494 I feel like Forrest Gump today…. 🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🚶🏽‍♀️🚶🏽‍♀️🚶🏽‍♀️🐶🐶🚶🏽‍♀️🚶🏽‍♀️🚶🏽‍♀️🐶

So day 493 blog would have read a busy day at work and then I was tired. The end.

Thought I’d save that nugget for today!

I actually lay on the couch from about 6pm and couldn’t move until I went to bed. I head butted my book at one point…. Never managed to actually fall asleep so slept like a log at night.

Not such a lovely sunrise at 5.30am today

So the fit body farm was very hard work this morning.

  • 1600m run (4 laps of the farm!)
  • 30 sit ips
  • 800m run (2 laps of the farm)
  • 15 burpee broad jumps
  • 400m run (1 lap of the farm)
  • 😳

Now I didn’t do as much as a most others in the class as my second run was cut down to two laps (from 3) but it’s still a lot for me. It’s hard to see others running past you but I need to realise I actually ran 2,800 metres before 7am.

Came home and had a shower and a coffee.

Now this is where it gets crazy as I had to drop the van into the garage this morning so I drove down and walked back with Bhruic and Freya.

So it’s roughly 3 miles home…..

Bearing in mind I’ve already run 2.8k….

It makes me laugh every time I walk to or from the garage… the Highlanders are up at the gate when I drive down and teeny tiny specs in the distance when I walk past?!?

I invented my own coo in the field!!!
Belted Galloways in the distance
Mini thistles
This way?!? Eh not today!

So I gets home. Dogs off the lead, opened some mail and decided to take Calaidh out while I was still moving.

Not even half way on our walk when the garage phoned to say the Van was ready!!! May as well just keep walking then?! Another 3 miles…..

We stopped in at the new Mocha Jaks on our walk.

Calaidh being a good girl

I had porridge with honey and banana and a coconut milk latte. The heavens opened as I sat outside and they had to find a table inside. Calaidh was so good. She just sat under my chair and didn’t make a sound.

Mocha Jak’s
Gielsland House looking very spooky in the rain. There was also a guy sheltering in the porch as I walked past and got the fright of my life!!
I don’t know if you can see the rain in this pic but it was torrential!!
Calaidh had to have a wee shake!

So we walked the full 3 miles back to the garage most of it on the rain.

Not gonna lie I’ve felt sick for a good wee while afterwards…. I’ve had a drink ofwater and eaten something and I feel a bit better now. Maybe just too dehydrated. Also my body wondering what on earth has happened to it. 😳😆

I felt guilty for being too tired to walk the dogs yesterday…. It’s 14.48 now and I’ve done 20,673 steps which is more than I’ve done in a long long time.

I’m now sitting with ice on my knee!

I tried to remortgage but the passwords weren’t working and my squeamishness made me give that up. I did log for a call back. We’ll see….

Hot off the press!!! The mortgage people actually called me back… I did not expect that for a minute. I’d pressed a button for a callback thinking they’ll never ring. But they did!

So check me…. Mortgage details all clear and almost ready to go.

I was so gee’d up by this burst of activity that I went out and did a food shop.

I have not stopped today really but it’s all good. I’ll sleep tonight!

We’ve had thunder on and off all day today though I haven’t noticed any lightening. There’s flash flooding too. A far cry from the scorching heat of the last month.

It’s good for the garden. And ducks 🦆

Stay safe everyone 🦆🦆🦆
