    Ooops! Realised this evening I went to bed before I updated on here on Sunday! I've been out of it a bit for the last 7-10 days, while I try and get a medication balance right. I'm trying to find the lowest dose I need for my sciatica to stop my back aching all the time that doesn't bring on the headaches at a level paracetamol can't cope with. I finally seem to be getting somewhere, but am still living in hope my physio appt comes throught sooner rather than later.

    Another week of nothing done!!
    Post was heavy this week, which meant I worked at least an extra hour most days. And I'm not sleeping well due at least in part to my sciatica, so just too tired on my days off to do anything.
    I did however force myself to go for a swim after work on Thursday evening. Needed to do 58 lengths to complete 2 miles for the month, but was hoping to do 68. Ended up completing 80 - my longest distance in as long as I can remember for one session, so I'm happy to settle for that as this weeks achievement.

    Finally managed a decent week, although I'd have like to have managed more - especially on the running side of things.

    Started with a 10 mile walk on Monday to earn some bling that was raising money for an armed forces charity
    The walk on Wednesday was a lot of stop/starting, as it was a circular to include a number of shops I wanted to visit for 1 or 2 items from each - but not enough (even all together) to merit taking the car.
    The walk today was up in the Lakes, as we've been away for the weekend. We meandered from Elterwater to Grasmere to get some gingerbread - a trip we do every time we get up there....

    I also swam 1800 metres on Thursday morning (72 lengths of the pool)

    Another slow week. Woke up with the worst migraine I've ever had on Wednesday, which meant nothing done for 2 days.
    My 10k today was slightly slower than last month when I had a chesty cough - my sciatica hasn't been behaving well this week, and decided to flare up badly about half way round. I still completed though, so I'm happy with that.

    I also cycled 13.49 miles this week (commute to and from work on Monday)

    Recreational walking - 14.66

    Total miles for year to date - 161.0
    Target for year to date (based on 1000 miles in year) = 169.87 miles in 62 days.

    Done better with my mileage this week, and am actually surprised I'm not further behind where averages say I should be.
    Plenty of year left to make up the 'missing' 9 miles

    This week I also swam 1.18 miles (76 lengths of a 25 metre pool, so 1900 metres)

    My Dad's due home from hospital on Thursday, which also happens to be my day off work. So I'm hoping to get a short run in before heading up that way to give my Mum some support - lots of jobs done around the house to enable him to come back, several of which he was adamant he didn't want doing so he's likely to get into a bit of a mood. I'm booked in on a 10k race next Sunday, and it'll be interesting to see how it goes as it's the same course I did last month while I had my chesty cough.

    Another quiet week for walking and running - just 4.36 miles to add.
    I need to get my records properly updated so I can see just how much I've started to fall behing target - lots of things are falling by the wayside as I'm spending days off work doing jobs for my Mum while my Dad's been in hospital (it's been just over a month now).

    I did manage some other exercise though - just over a mile of swimming (66 lengths of a 25 metre pool) after work on Thursday, and 13.48 miles of cycling (to and from work on Friday). The chesty cough and sore throat seem to have finally gone which makes me feel more postive about getting active again.

    ??? Really confused as last weeks update seems to have gone AWOL

    Last weeks report only added on 3.74 miles of commute walking on the Friday, and a 10k run on the Sunday (a live event I wouldn't have done had I not paid for it just before my chesty cough started up on 1st Feb)

    This past week has just seen one short commute walk of 1.67 miles - shocking really !! Need to get back to swimming, cycling and running this next week, as I've got several medals to earn before month end :(sweat) Just hoping the final remnants of my cough won't hold me back any longer.

    Pretty shoddy week - saved only by one day of commuting on foot! Just one short run braving the icy pavements on Thursday to complete 100km in January. The snow on Wednesday meant I wasn't driving and buses were likely to be hit and miss, so I walked to and from work. My colleagues declared me to be mental......

    Still a few miles in hand though.

    Starting strong.....

    1,000 miles in the year is an average of 2.74 miles a day

    Went to bed in the early hours planning to do a 1 mile run (plus warm up and cool down walks) today
    When I got up I decided I'd tackle a 5k (which I log as 3.12 miles on my watch)
    Ended up doing 3.5miles - plus 0.59 miles walking (warm up and cool down), making for a total of 4.09 miles

    I'm aiming to update on here every Sunday now ‏ — feeling happy
