Time is precious. Life is short. Do what matters most to you, and spend your time with those special ones when you can.
As for the running part: hmm, this has taken a bit of nosedive lately, with only a couple of runs throughout the week, and with my 'long' run now being about 16-17km, along with my pace now being super slow. Hmmm..... I'm blaming tiredness and the hot weather. It's ok though. I'm sure my running mo-jo and pace will come back eventually, and for now am interspersing the runs with more weights, walking, and cycling.
For those who follow my Lou's Weight Online antics, stay tuned for a new group program/challenge coming your way soon! I'm keen to have this one run as both in-person and online, so it doesn't matter where you are in the world: you can take part. Or, if you're a lucky, local Novocastrian, then it would be awesome to meet up in person for the weekly group sessions. Lots of motivating fun! Watch this space.
