The Day After…

So, after yesterday’s marathon ‘heroics’ I feel like I was my beaten up in my sleep last night. My thighs are like lead and I’m still dehydrated, despite drinking loads yesterday. The height of my exercise today will be a short walk to the park to watch Adam train. The lethargy after a marathon normally lasts several days so I’ll hopefully get back running later in the week. Thank goodness I don’t have to stagger into work today.

So, as today is a ‘rest day’, I thought I’d just pop up a picture of my first book, ‘Skelly’s Square.’ Have you read it yet? What did you think? Or would you be interested in it? To find out more, visit your local Amazon site and search under ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles: Skelly’s Square.’ Then let me know what you think. Book 2 in the series, ‘A New Jerusalem,’ is out this autumn/fall so what better time to check out its predecessor. Hoping you all have a great day wherever you are.

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. When you can walk down the stairs without clinging on to something then you’re well on the way to recovery. (Tee hee – we’ve all been there!)
    The Swiss/Datasport have issued a 1 million km challenge to all runners for the weekend of 30/31st May. The idea is that everyone (registered) runs whatever distance they can and it all gets added to the total. My dilemma is how far to (attempt to) run. 10k seems too short but 20 may be beyond me at this stage of my training (ie 6k max). But you have inspired me to go for it! 😊


  2. I learned something today. I never thought about what came after a marathon. I assumed I suppose, that people just went on as per normal. How silly and short-sighted of me. You just finished something amazing and physically demanding. Of course, there will be recovery time. Rest up. You’ve earned it.
