Last week

The Good:
  • I started the week on a high after my PB race on Saturday!
  • I had a great run on Wednesday evening. It was about 5k, and I ran about 4 mins slower (!) than my new PB, but I really, really enjoyed being out there.
  • The sun came out for a lovely bike ride along the cycle path on Friday afternoon.
  • I ran 5 miles on Saturday night with a fantastic view of the moon, huge, low, and yellow. It was another really enjoyable run, and ended up being pretty fast too (44m45s).
  • I picked up my dumbbells and then repeated a few times for the first time in months.
  • I am LOVING running in the cold weather. It's keeping me warm and preventing the winter blues!

Sunny bike ride in the country

The Not-so-good:
  • I tried a run on Monday morning which totalled 1 mile as I had an unexplained backache and I gave up and walked home.
  • I ran with the club on Tuesday, and while it was nice to run with others, I really hated the hill session we did. Every time we reached the top of the hill, the wind smacked into us...urgh...
So the good far outweighs the not-so-good!

Ran 13.4miles
Cycled 10.6miles

New landmark on the cycle path!


  1. Congrats on the PB! Looks like your good far outweighs your bad. WTG!

  2. I like cold weather running too. I really like it in lots of snow.

  3. The country view is sooo pretty! I hope your back is feeling better by now!

  4. Running is a cure for so much of what ails us - I'm not surprised that it keeps you happy through winter, especially when you have good runs.

  5. The best part of running in the cold, for my old bones, is getting back to a nice warm house!

  6. Glad to hear things are going well!
