I cycled 25 miles today in total. I went a slightly scenic route both in and home from work. I got very chilly toes by the time I got home, even though I was wearing three pairs of socks!! I need to sort that out as it’s just no fun once you get cold feet.
I started work a bit earlier this morning. As I was lusting over being back in bed I turned around to see this glow of light coming from the bedroom! It was a sign, time to get back into bed, it’s way too early to start work…
The whole world was very ominous this morning as a thick, cold frost rolled in. Nic and I went to the gym where I remembered very quickly how rubbish the gym is… But I did manage a 29 minute 5k, even if I did have to watch The Simpsons on my phone to stop meContinue reading “22/01/23 – Foggy morning!”
The sun was shining happily today as it was Nic’s birthday! We had a lovely walk in the sunshine to Crystal Palace, bought some nice things and then went home to chill out for the rest of the day. We’ve both had a super day and I’m feeling so happy!
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 thisContinue reading “19/01/23 – Running to work!”
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’mContinue reading “18/01/23 – A brisk and sunny day”
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, fingersContinue reading “17/01/23 – Fully packed and prepared!”
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 pleasedContinue reading “16/01/23 – A cosy day in”
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 dayContinue reading “15/01/23 – A lovely local walk”
