19/01/23 – Running to work!

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”.

18/01/23 – A brisk and sunny day

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!).

17/01/23 – Fully packed and prepared!

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.

16/01/23 – A cosy day in

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.

15/01/23 – A lovely local walk

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!

14/01/23 – Dinner with friends

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!
