Burning the Candle

I am truly tired today. I am so, so tired. I can’t really remember if I ever got this tired with my thryoid, but I know that I’m done and dusted without it! The cause of my fatigue is probably a simple but lethal combination of old age, no thyroid and partying like it’s 1999! I just can’t do it like I used to!

I’m desperate to go for a run, but there’s no way I’m getting up early, and there’s nothing left in the tank at the end of play of the work day. It’s one of those situations where there’s a will, but there’s no way. I’m pretty proud of myself for listening to my body, and giving it a break, rather than breaking it!

I may not be running, but I do get my hands on some new running gear. I swing by the offices of the Kolling Foundation and meet Sharne, the fundraising manager, who kindly gives me a super singlet which I can choose to wear for my half marathon, should I so desire. I’m ready and raring to go!

I spend the time I would have spent running, preparing something healthy and delicious for dinner. I stumble upon the luscious looking Kumara Shepherds Pie  in my latest issue of BBC Good Food magazine. It’s a perfect midweek supper and freezes well too. Best of all, I get to make the sweet potato mash in the Thermie, and the result is pie-licious!
