So, I’m back. Apologies for my absence, I haven’t had the best couple of weeks so I’ve withdrawn into myself slightly, but it’s time to pull myself out of my self induced isolation and lace up those running shoes.
10 Miles was the distance today, made harder because I haven’t done a thing in about 2 weeks, but I’m stubborn so I was going to finish, whatever happens. It was a bit frustrating when my phone battery died 5 miles in and I had to run in silence, but it wasn’t all bad, I have to get used to that when I do my cycle challenge next year. I’m old school, when I’m on a bike the thought of having earphones in sends shivers down my spine.
I have had a tough couple of weeks with the boys, it’s been hard in general throughout the holidays but the last two weeks both boys have been hard. C has seen a lot of behaviour from O that we wished he had never seen, but he has and unfortunately he is copying. I’m going to be pulling out some funny stories over the next couple of weeks, a greatest hits of our kids behaviour if you will, short and sweet, lightening the mood.
O had his first game in the under 8’s league today as well, it was great to watch, all the boys played exceptionally well and listened, it was great to see their attitude was on point and most importantly they were having fun. He bagged 4 goals too, which meant we have had a good day since, from a boy who complained that he never scored he’s really found what works for him and for me as a dad/coach/manager it’s great to see.
Looking forward to a week getting back on track and both boys start school next week so new starts and fun ahead. Hope you have all had a great week and have a great week ahead of you.
