Bloggus Interruptus

Hi all! I am still alive. We have also moved house while our house is being gutted and renovated. *Memo to self - do not plan renovations and house moves while marathon training!*

I have well and truly tapered - so much so I feel like a slug and I'm also running like a slug ie very slowly! Last week I think I ran a total of 36km and this week so far its been 7km. I had a blood test on Monday to check my iron levels - should find out the results either today or tomorrow - fingers crossed its all normal.

Anyway, in our temporary abode we have no internet access so I'm restricted to looking and checking blogs and updating my own when I am at work. I am so far behind in what's happening out there in blogland. I am in withdrawal - first it was chocolate, now its blogging.

But the marathon is still on course and I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone and meeting some new people this weekend. Oh, and eating chocolate!

Cocoa and chocolate are rich in minerals that the body needs, including magnesium and iron...
got that off the net. and if it's published on the internet it must be true! it's scientific name also means food of the gods. you're a running goddess... so eat up! it also kills dogs, cats and other household pets, so... save a pet, eliminate chocolate on this planet one bite at a time!
