On the move again

Imagine.  I spend all day in a stuffy office looking at a computer screen.  As soon as I get home, I turn on my notebook and I'm off again.  Facebook, email, blog, forums.  It has to stop.  I read an article the other day on how to use social networking to your advantage rather than being its slave.  I do struggle with the self-publicity part. Yes I have a blog, but I won't publicise it.  That would be far too big headed.   But I will set myself a target and tell you about it instead.  That's supposed to work.  Apparently.  I tried to join a friend in writing a 1000 words a day.  After a measly 4,500 words of utter drivel I gave up.  But then it worked for her.

So here's my target: run 10k a week and then do a 10k run by the end of October.  I ran today for the first time in six weeks.  It wasn't easy, but it felt good.

 I have a hard week ahead.  It's university clearing so I'll be working seven long days in a row.  I'll be needing some fresh air and exercise.

I'll let you know how I do.


  1. I'm with you on the 1000 words a day Karen - just didn't work for me.
    Good luck with the running.That's a great target to aim for.


Long time, no see

I blame Facebook. And Twitter. And Whatsapp. Not to mention Cooking Fever and Candy Crush, both of which I've installed and deleted from...
