Running, Stitching and All That

I'm pleased to say that I've just completed week 2 of the C25K training program.  And it was an interesting run.  I just got to the second walk as I caught up with a gentleman who was walking, flat cap, umbrella and all.  As my phone ordered me to start running again I charged past him at full speed.  That was a mistake.  It was too fast.  I struggled on at that rate as he could still see me but it killed me for the rest of the run, so when I turned round I passed him again.  This time I could hardly walk let alone run and my right foot was squelching with every step from getting soaked on my last run.  I must have been a right sight.  Valuable lesson learnt.

On the stitching front, I've done more of Dragonfly and the page is close to a finish now.  The just four half pages to go.  Still hoping for a finish before Christmas.  

And "All That" .... well my eldest daughter got her "A" level results and did brilliantly with A,B and C so is off the Swansea University to study Psychology.  And really excited for her (I wasn't bright enough to go) but there's a lot to do and sort out before she heads off.  Big changes ahead but I'm sure she will have a great time.

Happy stitching everyone.

Good on you to give running a go. You'll get there and improve every day.

Excellent progress on the dragon!

Congrats to you daughter!! Good for her :) And Dragonfly looks super good! That run sounds miserable :( But I bet you can laugh about it now and be glad it is over haha

Just catching up with your blog! Congrats on the running and to your daughter too. I went to Swansea uni and had a lovely three years there. Ah, the memories all come flooding back. Guess it's changed a lot in 25 years though! :)
