I'm now well into my management training course at Adelaide Uni and seeing that work is kindly paying for this training, I feel its only right to give back proportionately. This means doing my assignments on the weekends and course reading in the evenings. This will continue into January or February of next year and then I'll reassess my commitment to further study.
My son is finding this year at school very challenging and I need to spend more time helping him get settled into a good study routine. There is more to this than I'm prepared to write about but as Peter said recently "the honeymoon is over and we need to step up our support."
Sadly I havent had a significant lotto win so work is a constant in my life. I have my ups and downs as everybody does I'm sure.
On the health and fitness front its the same old and this is one of the reasons I've decided not to blog. Frankly I'm sick of writing about how marvellously I'm doing one minute and then in the next minute I'm binging again. I ask myself "whats the point of putting it out there?" and I no longer have a good reason.
I know I over think and over analyse and flit from one perspective to another and back again. I think I have a way to go before I find "my way" and I'd rather keep that journey private. I bore myself with my writings sometimes.
Finally the Half Marathon is fast approaching but I'm no longer confident that I'll run it. Frankly its a physical struggle as well as a mental one. I'm not rushing my decision though and will give it at least another week to see how I fare. Running for an hour + 40 last weekend left me very stiff and sore. I'm dreading this weekend's 2 hour run.
So thats it folks. I wave a farewell and although I'm leaving on a bit of a down note I just want to include some pics that make me proud and happy.
Almost at the finish line of my 2010 Half Marathon.
From this in December 2006.
To this in October 2007.
My family (lazy bunch!!)
Just the three of us.
And my friends.
And I like how I look in this picture. I felt great that night.
