This is somewhat of an experiment in alternate technology. I still have no computer - but I do have a very fancy phone. I'm sitting in a school hall at a percussion eisteddfod. My youngest competed in a solo section (came away with a 3rd place trophy) and is now playing in a school ensemble. The music's pretty god but I think that any child not playing should have their sticks collected till it's their turn. Percussionists cannot have sticks in their hands without wanting to hit them on something or someone.
Yesterday's run was another first for me. 30 k! It's weird setting out knowing that you won't be back for almost 3 hours. And each time I finish I realize that next week's run is only going to be longer. I'm not convinced that I love running such long distances. I get so stiff afterwards and tired! It wouldn't be so bad if I could nap but that's not always an option. Yesterday it was brekky out, a trip to the fruit and vegetable markets, a basketball match then a walk with a friend. I was a little cranky this morning knowing I had a day of listening and sitting ahead - but no sleep-in or afternooon nap.
Overall, though, I do think I'm coping with the extra hours on my feet. If only I could manage the chaffing issues!
So week 2 is done and dusted. Total distance - 67 k. Total calories burnt - a lot!!!
