Nic and I went out straight after work tonight to walk to a new pub 2 miles away. We had a really fun evening, even if it was a wee bit chilly! But it’s nothing that a hat and fingerless gloves can’t solve… and a blanket… and an outdoor heater!
I ran 9 miles to work today, the first one of this year! I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a PB, so even better. It was a wonderful sunrise and went on to be an equally great day as I went for dinner with a friend after work as well. I got asked this Christmas why I run, and after a bit of thinking, it’s made me realise the answer is “because I love it”.
I made it in, and back again! I cycled 20 miles in minus degrees with only cold toes and fingertips, so I’ll take that as a win. Tomorrow I’m hopefully running in if everything goes to plan. My main fear is ice, which may cause me to bail out and get the bus, but I’m hoping that won’t happen. But for now, it’s time to get an early night and hope I get this glorious weather again tomorrow (if a bit warmer!).
The plan is to cycle to work tomorrow, leave some extra stuff there, and then do my first run to work of the year on Thursday! I feel prepared… And just a a little anxious about the minus temperatures going on right now! But I’m sure it’ll be super and I won’t forget anything, fingers crossed anyway.
The UK has taken a cold turn today and it’s now chillllyyy. We didn’t leave the house… We did however have a cosy evening in with the heating on. I’m nearing the end of my second book of 2023 and I’ve enjoyed it! I have a stack more to get through and I’m so pleased I’m enjoying reading again.
We walked 7 miles today with Georgie and Andy. It was lovely to have a shakeup of company, and what excellent company at that! We walked around our local area, getting some food from the market and then onto Dulwich Village for a (soft) drink at the pub before walking back. I finished the day with an excellent massage. The weekend has flown by but I’ve really enjoyed every second!
I ran 8 miles today. I’m super pleased as it was a decent pace too even though I went to two shops whilst I was out. Literally “running” errands!
This evening Nic and I went round our friends house for dinner and had a great time. I’m just so grateful life is back to normal again. One good thing about covid is I really don’t take these moments for granted!
I organised a date night tonight for me and Nic in tooting. We went to a lush wine bar then to one of my fave pasta places I’ve wanted to take Nic to for a while now. We had such a fun evening and ended up rolling in after midnight. Here’s my tiny pickles moustache!
I went into the office again today but I cycled in! Finally back on my bike again after a month off. I am pooped now though… I forgot to take any photos so here’s me chilling out after dinner already in my jammies. I need to get fitter!
And immediately dealing with people having calls without headphones on… But I made it in, got a lot of work done and then got to have dinner with the lovely Liv who was in town! So it all worked out in the end. But seriously, use headphones…
