Survival!

Maybe not of the fittest, but we did get through the entire 13.1 miles. Slowly. 2 hours, 54 minutes and 50 seconds. But we did it, and they hadn't run out of medals, and we weren't last or even slowest! There were some circumstances around the edges that were extremely unfortunate, and my Gorgeous Girlfriend has sworn never again, although I think getting a nasty stomach bug the evening after the event hasn't helped with that!

Today I can walk normally. To be honest, even yesterday I didn't really feel much worse than after a hard game of hockey. So that's good too! I'd really like to say I'll keep the running up this time, seeing as how my feet aren't trying to fall off in quite the same way as after the London marathon last year, but I'm a bit more realistic about my sticking power. Although I would like to think I could manage one 30 minute run per week. I mean, that's not unreasonable, right? And there's a handy looking all-women running club down in Brighton I might manage to join at some point. IF I EVER SELL MY BLOODY HOUSE!

Sorry. We have sold my house. Just need the people who want to buy it to sell their flat. Come on now people. I'm sure it's lovely, someone, just buy it!

And, although the Rabbitch had a great plan for dealing with the knitting projects that were causing me issues, I have taken the alternative approach of trying to finish one. The red jumper I started in Debbie Bliss Maya (or Manos Del Uruguay for those of you who can get it), well, I nearly got to the finish line with that. And then I decided that I didn't like the neckline, and really I'd paid quite a lot for this wool, and I'm only making the pattern up as I go along anyway, so I should frog back to the start of the v and redo it. So maybe I did sort of take that advice after all! But I'm about half-way through re-knitting now, and I think it'll be more what I had in mind. So maybe after Easter I'll have another finished object to add! (Maybe...)

We have a great plan for Easter weekend. It involves a sofa, large quantities of tea, and a big stack of DVDs... Oh yes. Just two more days and one trip to the opticians to go, and I'll be there...
