Weekend workings

…crikey, it ticked over this weekend! I am loathe to say busy, ‘coz that really is like tempting the gods to curse me with a really hectic weekend! But, it ticked on over – seeing plenty of emergencies at the beginning of the day, trips to theatre for emergency surgery, going out every night to see an emergency admission, and then my personal favourite, 2 deliveries after midnight this morning! It’s going to be a long week…

Anyway, enough of that. How is this weather? I am loving the cold! Yay! After moaning on Friday, it’s cool and crisp and gorgeous! But how it changed over the weekend was quite something. Friday evening was HOT! I got called out at midnight, and the temperature driving to the hospital was 25°C, then when I got called out Saturday night at 22h00, it was down to 15°C. Sunday morning, just before 08h00, it was 10°C, and this morning on way in 8°C! Quite a transformation. I was a bit sad we couldn’t sneak off to the mountain for a night to really embrace the chilliness, but hey. Next time!

The running has been ticking over. I still am vey anxious about this run, but gotta just put my head down and do it! I have little understanding of my body, and I can’t really tell you what I expect to run it in. I keep just reverting back to the very negative thought process of ‘I hope I finish and don’t make an idiot of myself.’ And really, I know I should be moving beyond that. I have trained well ( I think, maybe I’ve just been fooling myself?) and I feel stronger than any previous attempts… Oh well, I will see. And talking about training etc… I really seem to have plateaued rather dramatically on the weight loss front – I haven’t really lost much in the last 2 months. I think it corresponds to when I started drinking some wine and it hasn’t even been that much. We are still largely sticking to LCHF, although I have probably gone from 30gm of carbohydrates a day to about 50gm… Time to get serious again! Gotta keep counting those calories!

Anyway, before I dissolve into a sorry for myself fest again, let’s do some work! Have a warm Monday, wherever you are!

You’ll be fine on the run – remember your times are always better in a race than when you run solo – the atmosphere and your fellow runners carry you on. You’ll be fine – and remmber cut off is 3 hours – plenty time!

Goodness why do babies always come at night?

It is FREEZING here in Gauteng and the worse is still to come.

I’ve also decided that I have to get back on the LCHF wagon properly – I’ve been dabbling in it but I’ve slowly and sneakily gained about 500g’s since Comrades.

The LCHF thing is not as easy as all those blogs out there make it seem.
Good Luck with your training and headspace.
