Here we go!

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.

Today's run 
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.

  1. 0 mg sodium - lol!

    We need to find somewhere where we can practice climbing up ropes.
