Here it is, my first post in my first blog. Expect it to change over time - style, layout, frequency, font, focus, content, everything - because I will change over time. Sometimes minute by minute.
12°C, cloudy, cool and windy so what to wear? I opted for a jacket and pants over a short-sleeved tee but soon found myself with my jacket tied around my waist and wishing I'd worn shorts. I mapped out a hilly 6.6 km route and though it's the first time I've ever run outdoors in windy conditions (19km/h) I was able to maintain my standard 5.6mph speed. It felt harder than usual though!
As I was coming to the end of my run, I saw Bev. She went to run club this morning and ran with the 10k group. She said they did a slow 7k. I'll be running with them soon enough (next week!), and never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd ever be in a place where I could. Go, me!
I am thinking about the Warrior Dash and I think it's going to be very challenging for me unless I start working out and strengthening my upper body. So that's one more thing to add to my to-do list: get fitter. Because I want to do that race and, more importantly, I want to enjoy doing it!
I was skimming through a magazine this week and came upon an ad for Shredded Wheat. The text included this: 0 mg Sodium. At first glance, I thought it said, "OMG! Sodium!" I'm spending far too much time online, obviously.
