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.
