Tomorrow is London – today was stomach butterflies day

9 days to London – the no running day of this week

Didn’t run today. Instead attended the usual pilates with Brenda, and went for a swim before it.

Body was knackered when I woke up. It was knackered when I dropped R off at the station. It was knackered when I returned with the hill loop walk with the boys. It was knackered before the swim, during the swim, and after the swim. It felt ok for the first half of the pilates class. It was very knackered at the end of the class. And started knackered rest of the day.

Got just one set of stretches in, apart from the ones on pilates. Did foam roll and ice the legs though.

Meals were eggs for breakfast, chicken katsu for lunch, and subway for dinner. Bribed the head with an Oreo ice cream sandwich after dinner, so it could keep on going for another few hours.

Looking forward to end of the week now.
