Big new start

June 30, 2018

I’d intended to write an update on my last post long before now but in the end nothing much changed, and in fact workload got worse this term as it always does for HT’s in term 4! So although I started some 5:2 dieting which did work while I did it and entered the women’s 10km I didn’t do anything with consistency and ran the 10km in the sameish time I did at 4 months post c-section. However I also just accepted all of this and decided not to worry about it until the end of the school session as it just wasn’t worth it. And I had a reason to accept it would just be for one more term.

A couple of weeks after my last blog post I was successful in being appointed as the permanent Head Teacher of Mount Florida Primary School, beside Hampden, which will begin at the start of the new school session in August. This meant that I knew there would be an end point to all of the travelling at the end of June and then I could get back on track.

The school is 2.5 miles from the house so I am hoping to do run commuting on days I don’t need the car, and even doing that I should still be back home earlier than I have been this year and will be able to have more time at work too! And it will mean I have got a decent amount of running done without going back out at night. I’m also hoping to get back to the club on a Thursday night.

So it has been the first couple of days of the holidays and I started it with a slow jog down to Rouken Glen yesterday to meet the boys there. Not far and not fast but I got out and ran which is how I intend to carry on from now. Then did Victoria parkrun today. I’m going to try to be more consistent with my strength training too as this has always been beneficial in the past. And I have been good with my food intake which I also intend to keep up now so I’m back on My Fitness Pal too.

Thank you again for people’s support, it was much appreciated and I now intend to take on the advice more!
