I’m Very Very Tired – Part 1

Heavy legs this morning after yesterday’s run but glad I went out when I did, as we are set for another wet and windy weekend in Northern Ireland. It’s 9 a.m. here and still dark. Adam’s rugby has been called off because of the weather and I doubt we will be straying far from the house between now and Monday morning. Which suits me just fine, as I’m very, very tired.

More to follow….

How tired are you today?

Published by Fractured Faith Blog

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. Have restful weekend Stelhen. You sound as if you really need it. Weather forecast is dreadful at the moment, but wirse in Ireland than in England. Snuggle down!


  2. Forecast is grim … yup, stay inside! Am I tired? Yes, and my mood is mirroring the weather. Too many people in the house, routine upset and I’ve procrastinated about getting my repeat prescription. Serves me right. At least I know that the pills have an effect! Sorry … I’m having a grumble and this post is about you (narcissist, moi?). I’m sorry you’re tired and I can see why – you’ve had a lot on your plate. I hope that you get a lot of time off from work now that Christmas is nearly upon us. The Colonel has already finished so is busy upsetting my routine. But I’ve escaped for an hour or two so am sitting in my lovely coffee shop re-energising. Sometimes it’s lovely to get away from everyone.


      1. I began running about 4-5 years ago also. It was pretty huge for me because I was a long time product of the 90’s grunge smoker, lack of self care trend. I am in Florida so the humidity is no joke! Still have our AC on! I have run a few half marathons then got burned out. Needed a new goal so….marathon now or never! Ireland is on my bucket list to see!


  3. Have a quick recovery, Stephen! At least the sour weather means you can’t do much, and so you’ll get to rest more. We’ve had a busy week, too… But I got some sort of flu and was down for a couple days. So glad we don’t have anywhere to go today (which is unusual for me because I love getting out and about). Tomorrow, our church is having Christmas dinner so that will be a pretty chill day.
    I’m so glad you’ve stuck with your running!

  4. That is a lot of miles! I couldn’t even run 1 mile unless I was in danger being chased! 🙂 I never even ran that much before I had Celiac. Whenever it is stormy here, we say, “this is good Irish weather.” God bless!


      1. I would absolutely love to visit Ireland! My ancestors are from County Cork descended from Cellachán, who you probably know was King of Munster. I love the movie “Waking Ned Devine.” If you’ve never seen it, I recommend it. It is a delightful and hilarious Irish comedy! God bless you and your family!
