I’m a big fan of Autumn, well the leaves gently falling/ cool breeze/ blackberry picking type weather. Not the hurricane winds and apocalyptic rain weather. It’s a good time to take a step back and review the years progress to date. So how am I doing?
Could be better, could be worse. I loved my running in June. I really felt that it was an achievement to run every day for thirty days. After a couple of niggly injuries I’m back running about every second day, and really enjoy that time out.
Lots of friends have started back on their fitness journeys, be it spinning, or the Waterford Winter Running league. I’ve love to do a class, and have been wanting to learn Italian for a long time. So I might look into this.
And my horse is getting more attention. She’s *thrilled*. She actually is not a fan of the hot summers either, so this weather kinda suits her too, plus she’s very aware after 11 years that I’m not the biggest fan of riding in the pouring rain, so chances are every now and then she gets a day *off*. Mind you, considering she really only *works* for about 45 minutes 5 days a week, you could hardly say she has a hard life!
The kids have settled back to school, and the ‘ol exam year study is going well. Even if I’m sometimes juggling the mathematical analysis of ph of water that is changing temperature, and a vegetarian menu for a day. It’s all good. Not that we ever watch much TV, but it’s a no go area during the week, so we are *hopefully* getting more done.
Aims for the next three months?

Spend time with family, extended especially!

Sit down every now and then……
