26/02/21 – Morning reflection

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”

21/02/21 – Long run Sunday

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”

07/02/21 – Snowy run!

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!”

31/01/21 – Long run, achy legs

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”

28/01/21 – I got out!

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!”

13/01/21 – Lunchtime rainy run

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”

01/12/20 – A lucky 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”

18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run

Started off today with a 8km run that I only mildly had to drag myself out of bed for this morning. I’m enjoying it a lot more recently, now that I’m running for the fun of running, rather than being so competitive with myself and others. I still have a while to go yet, butContinue reading “18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run”

01/03/19 – Happy face!

I ran nine miles this morning! In a big loop to the post office to pick up a package that could have been 100% posted through our letter box. But I’m still so pleased with my run! This evening I had Sharon round to see the house for the first time and have a crackingContinue reading “01/03/19 – Happy face!”
