Full-on day

I got up at 5.45am to go to the gym before work. Despite Sonic's promises to join me on my early morning workouts, there was just no shifting him. I'm not going to bore with the gym schedules, because quite frankly I'm boring myself. I just need to tell you one humorous tale: I'm quite scatterbrained at times. And especially more in recent times. But the there was a girl at the girl who took it to a new level. Whilst I was on the elliptical trainer, so was frantically pedaling away on the bike in front. When she had finished her session she quite admirably went away to get some paper towels and disinfectant spray to clean down the bike she was using. So she came back and spent a few minutes thoroughly wiping down the to the one she was using. I nearly fell off the machine laughing :-)

I had to get to work early, as I had a meeting out at Park Circus. I decided to leave my car in the carpark and walk out. It was raining, but I didn't think it was that bad. I call it falling-down-rain. I know all rain falls down, but I mean it's the kind of rain that doesn't attack you from all angles. Anyway, it wasn't my wisest decision, as I got pretty drenched - on the way out and again on the way back.

At lunchtime I dragged Sonic round the shops looking for new gear for our holiday. Not too much damaged caused, as I only came back with a pair of jeans. Shopping is quiet hard just now, as I don't want to buy anything that's only going to fit me for five minutes. I find it a bit depressing, as I never had to worry covering and hiding bits. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving my little bump. But I hate the boobs. And everything else is a little more padded than usual.

After work I went a four-mile run before the running club committee meeting. I chose quite a hilly route (Top gate, maxwell, canniesburn, switchback) so my average was even slower than normal - 9.35m/m. It was a really nice fresh night, so it was quite enjoyable.

So after a nice, uneventful, but drawn out committee meeting (need to be careful who reads this!), I was home for 10.30. Needless to say, I was pretty zonked.

Hi, I think I saw you out running today!
It will have been about 6.30pm (a wild guess) at Homebase - you were running away from it (literally, not metaphorically!) I smiled and you did too, I had my hair in a long ponytail. Just thought it was quite funny that I recognised you from looking at your blog once through John Kynaston's blog!!
Anyway, enjoy your night!

Nice job getting the workout out of the way early! I hate getting up early but LOVE getting it out of the way and feel great all day! I have been in denial and went on shopping sprees to make sure that I would still be able to fit in clothes in my size now after having kids. I never shop and I was buying things that I won't even be able to wear very soon!! I was so flat before, now I like my boobs!! Before my husband used to tease me that you wouldn't be able to tell if I was walking around topless - that I'd just look like a little chubby boy. Haha.

My wife's boobs have just about returned to normal size now. She had to go through a funny awkward week or two where her old bras still didn't fit but the maternity bras were clearly baggy. Baggy bras = not good. ;-)
