Today I am mostly luxuriating in Sunday’s wonderful Sunday-ness by lounging around in my pyjama, drinking cups of tea and taking the day slowly.
Anticipating the hours stretching ahead of me, I ponder the options. The only two ‘useful’ things on my possible to-do list are to finally type up some reviews of the books that I’ve read recently (work pressures and general busyness have lead to a kind of blogger’s-block due to a sort of allergy to the internet anywhere outside of the office that I seem to have developed), or alternatively get my bottom off the sofa and go for a run.
This year I’ve entered the UK Bupa Great North Run. Something I’ve always thought I should get around to doing as a) my preferred form of exercise is running, b) because I wanted to support a charity that is important to me c) I grew up in the North East so the idea of a running challenge that culminated in the final few steps to glory being over the Tyne Bridge was kind of appealing.
As I did do a little run yesterday and the event is not until September, today I think I want to give a little bit of love to Novel Insights and enjoy catching up with other blogs and bookish things. To be fair sitting on the sofa while typing with a cuppa is infinitely less taxing too!
Score 1-0 to blogging.
What are you up to this weekend – getting active or taking it slowly? Have you taken part in any charity runs?
