I know, I know, everyone is going on about the weather, but seriously, it is July! JULY!
This is the last week of term, but it does not feel like it at all with all the rain and wet play. We had Sports day (rained off the first date)- the field was wet, and the water soaked through my trainers (why did I take my wellies home on Monday?), and then it rained right at the end, so I spent the rest of the day with sopping wet socks and trousers. Not good.
Last night I made some cookies to keep everyone going:
As I had some cookie mix (and not much time) it was perfect- I used the Oatmeal cookie mix that American Soda sent me, and added in some of the butterscotch chips (which, by the way, taste like butterscotch Angel delight).
It made a lot- 2 big tray-fulls, and they went down well at work.
I have also been getting gifts ready- the fudge is all bagged up now, and I will take it in tomorrow as the last day will be so manic.
I missed the WIAW post again, but I did take a photo of my lunch from the weekend (possibly? Or earlier than that)- crumpets with peanut butter and fresh strawberries (so good), lime curd, and Earl Grey tea.
At the moment I am deciding whether to go to the Sweatshop run tonight. I woke up at 4am this morning with a bad headache, and it would not go away. Since being better I have been trying to steer clear of painkillers (not that I take them loads)- because I must have been on some kind of painkiller for at least 5 months. Anyway, I had to succumb to ibuprophen in the end, and luckily it went, but I have felt a bit groggy today (from the lack of sleep I think), plus after being soggy all day, I feel I have only just warmed up and dried off. It is not raining out there at the moment, and I think that a run in the fresh air might help, but then again if it pours I think I could end up feeling rubbish, and at some points I feel like my headache is on the verge of coming back. So we shall see. Still have not got my t-shirt as they have not had my size in, so that is a good reason to go! Also because we have the wedding on Friday, I can’t go out for a run then (and don’t want to go out in the morning as I want to have time to do my hair and if I run in the morning it gets a wet ponytail), and the Reception is on Saturday so I suppose I could go out then for a short run, but ideally I wanted to wash my hair Friday night and then make it look presentable on Saturday morning, as then it is easier to sort out. Hmm. But then after that I will be on holiday so I can have a run whenever I want. And I don’t want to be unwell for the wedding, or for the last few days of term. Oh it is hard to tell!
How do you decide when to give a workout a miss?
