I am considering changing the name of this blog to Snot Rocket Backsplash just because it’s such a great phrase. If you are considering starting one, you can have that on me.
I experienced said backsplash today on the final km of my long slow run as I ran uphill into a headwind. It was a lovely run, not quite as slow as it should have been but what can a girl do? The run marked the end of Week 1 of my half marathon training programme, which is 16 weeks long but includes 2 rest weeks. On my return I had a snack of homemade hummus, made by my daughter
And very yummy it was too.
I have two very busy weeks coming up and am determined to stick to my training plan. I may have to shuffle runs around but will get them done. One way I have tried to ensure I can keep everything going and make time to run is by preparing family dinners ahead of time. Three hours of cooking yesterday resulted in 7 frozen meals plus a few accompaniments that should get us through to the weekend without resorting to take aways.
