Thanks so much for the amazing tips and support yesterday!
The overwhelming majority seems to be in favour of running with the slower group, and camelbak if I feel I must have it – which is really a ‘no’!
My clothes shrank
This is an uncomfortable topic, but one I feel quite a few of you can relate to.
Today I tried on some pants that I haven’t worn in a few months (more than one pair!) and they don’t fit. In the past, this would have sent me into a spiral of crazy. Today, it was a mild annoyance.
I still hate it when this happens, but I think for the first time in years, I honestly don’t mind all that much.
In training, I’ve put on some weight and developed different muscles. I’ve also eaten more.
All of these things – running, training, eating – have made me a better, happier person.
Weight changes – day by day, week by week. As long as I’m not sitting around eating litres of ice cream while watching the Simpsons (which is the best thing ever when combined with other past-times!), then I’ve got nothing to worry about.
And that’s liberating.

Little J flew in from Melbourne today
He has been super helpful with a bit of prep for next year’s business plans (I’ll leave you hanging on that one!)
So right he and I are kicking back with Poppet and Bunny, watching Community and enjoying life.
Seeing Little J! So good to have him in Canberra.
Do you ever have those moments where clothes just don’t fit like they used to?
Ever gained weight while training?
What’s on for your Monday?
