A tourist on their hols, or a Steph embarking on a sunny run?! Got the arms out today for a morning 5 mile run. The sun was shining and it was waaaarm. After that it was brie and cranberry sandwiches with Nic (civilised) and then a long catch-up walk with Moira. What a nice Sunday.
I’ve had a very wholesome day today. I cross stitched for an hour this morning before setting out on a ten mile run. I thought the weather was ideal, if a bit windy. But I ended up getting ALL the elements! It was super sunny, then rained, hailed and sleeted and finally finished up withContinue reading “13/03/21 – ALL the elements”
This morning I went for a speedy 5km run. It was 2 degrees, a clear blue sky with the sun shining – ideal conditions. Once I got back home I noticed there was still steam rising off me so I went into the garden to stretch and cool down. The birds were chirping, the sunContinue reading “26/02/21 – Morning reflection”
I ran to Clapham Common and back today today. It was an absolute slog… Not enough food and water yesterday, and too thick of top when it’s 14 degrees – sweaty! I ended up tying my top up to get my tummy out to cool off! That’s a bucket list item to have enough confidenceContinue reading “21/02/21 – Long run Sunday”
It’s snowed all day here today. I went out for a nine mile run in it when it hadn’t yet settled on the pavements. It was wonderful, so refreshing and calm. I enjoyed all the nods of encouragement from passers by who were also out braving the elements. Later on today I devoured more ofContinue reading “07/02/21 – Snowy run!”
Decided I would head out on a slower pace today and see where it takes me. I ended up running nine miles! I’m very pleased with that. I listened to a chunk of my audio book and actually enjoyed myself. I think I’ve been pushing it too hard on every run, so I’m planning onContinue reading “31/01/21 – Long run, achy legs”
I set my alarm for 7am, raring to go for a run and… I went back to sleep. But! I ended up going at lunch and did a 29min 5k which I’m very pleased by. Most importantly because I found it tough but enjoyed it – a great way to blow off steam from work.Continue reading “28/01/21 – I got out!”
Oh dear, I’ve started a third book whilst still having two others on the go. They’re all slightly different so it’s easy enough to follow along! I just wanted a break from the other two. It’s time to get some reading done!
After struggling to get up before work to exercise, I finally decided to run at lunchtime instead. It worked great! It was cool and rainy, but it wasn’t dark and was very quiet. I got 5k done, but most of all it really cheered me up. Got back home, made a lush cheese and sweetcornContinue reading “13/01/21 – Lunchtime rainy run”
Huge moon this morning! It never looks that impressive but it was all very serene as I woke up for a run. I had such a good run that I didn’t even realise a small bird pooed on my top at some point! I’ve been told it’s lucky so I’ve entered the lottery. If youContinue reading “01/12/20 – A lucky run”
