Following on from Wednesday’s Bucket List post, if you have any recommendations of races I could do near you then let me know and I’m adding them to the original post so I don’t forget!!
Anyway, I’m home! Tucked up at home with my lovely parents, in a snowy, icy, frozen England. It was a bit of luck that our plane could land, it is so lovely to be here!
To wrap up the week, I did some running!
Sunday: 9 miles.
My long run, which started badly but got better. This run included my first big hill of the year, and tell you what…the next day, my calves and my quads were agony. I’d forgotten all about that.
Wednesday: 4 mile stroller run
You may have guessed that I procrastinated my way out of my Tuesday run. I always feel rubbish when I do that. Today, my friend came over and we ran 4 miles. She is notching up her mileage bit by bit, it’s really exciting. I’m working on signing her up for a 10k. Four easy miles and the opportunity for me to natter on whilst running!
Thursday: 5 miles
Our plane left this afternoon…and I needed some miles out my system first. So five cold miles at 7am, churned out as quick as possible (watch-free so no idea of my time) and then home where my lovely husband had made scrambled egg on toast…and a little bit of family time!!
And that was it. So far, the new shoes are suiting me. My feet got a little numb on Sunday’s long run, but that run wasn’t exactly great. But now we’re in the UK, the snow is falling…it’s time for some Winter running.
