International Happiness Day!

Apparently it’s International Happiness Day today…


I’m (sort of) running again!

The very slow journey back to running has started this week and I could not be happier!!!

My physio has assigned me 6 runs over 12 days, each slowly building upon the one before, with the last one being a solid 5km run!

Today was the second of these runs.

Day 1 – 1 min run / 1 minute walk for 20 minutes

Day 2 – 1 min run / 1 min walk for 24 minutes

With my injury only setting in at 5km’s, it’s difficult to tell if there are any issues when running like this… but it feels fantastic to be back out there!

Hopefully this is the start of good things to come!

Week 10 – Bah humbug

I’m really starting to feel the pressure of finding (new) things to do each week… life has this funny way of becoming ‘routine’, and when you throw in there all the studying I’m trying to get done during the week, while still allowing myself some sliver of a social life – well, there just isn’t much time / energy / motivation / excitement about doing ‘new’ things each week. Lying on the couch and watching mindless repeats of Friends is my ideal way of spending any free time that is not taken up by studying, going out for the usual weekend drinks, or just enjoying some chill time with J (and he really dislikes Friends so this has to be done on my own… I know, right?! Who dislikes Friends???) 😉

Anyway, with all that rambling aside, what I’m trying to get at is that this past week has left very little in the eyes of ‘something new’, so I’m gonna stretch things out a little here…

Dave went to a housewarming party with me on Friday night – a party where we had live music from a local well-known Irish dude – and this was the first time that Dave had been around this music, and he even got to play the guitar… so that’s new, right, even if it’s not entirely new for me?!
