Running, Raspberries and Rain.

I never seem to have enough hours in the day to achieve all I want to do. This has been especially true lately. I’m trying to train for a half marathon that’s happening in a few weeks time. I don’t mind getting a bit wet, drizzle does not bother me! However a torrent is another matter! It has been so wet I’ve struggled getting in the miles and when the sun does decide to come out it’s a real heartrending decision as to whether to run, or garden! So the running is behind schedule and so is the  garden!  This week we have had a few sunny spells and I have tried really hard to get back on track. I fitted in a few runs, not as long as I would have liked, but I got a few miles in. The new raspberry patch is now full. My body is aching a little as I had to dig up the canes and replant as quickly as possible. I will have to clear another small patch to plant the last few, so hopefully the rain will hold off. The raspberry canes are looking lovely, with lots of green leaves and shoots appearing, unfortunately now is thetime to prune them, so I will have to cut all the greenery off! Oh well, a gardeners lot I suppose!
