As a schoolchildren we were discouraged from using the word ‘nice’. Apparently it is bland unimaginative and meaningless. But sometimes ‘nice’ is just what you mean, pleasant, free from trauma, not in the least bit wicked and not outstanding in any way: just nice. Sometimes nice is good enough. I’m happy to settle with nice.
Last night hubs and I had an impromptu date night. It was lovely. Fortunately we were very chilled so we weren’t too stressed when our food took a long time to arrive – had they forgotten us ?(yes) and so we reminisced about the last time that had happened to us – it was after my half marathon! I was starving and in the market for a huge number of calories and I waited and waited…. and I drank a glass of wine and nearly passed out because it went straight to my head! Happy memories. I want to be a runner again.
So after an unhurried waking up I dressed in my running kit. I do remember that I once wrote a blog complaining that Lycra always fits and how there’s no excuse to buy any more running kit. Now I know that isn’t true😬 It only stretches so far ….
Anyhow went for a 2 mile pootle along my current favourite route. It actually felt like I was running at times and it felt good. It was actually cooler than it has been for a couple of weeks, maybe that helped.
I love all the different types of grasses and wildflowers in the grass verges. It’s just nice to remember how much I love the countryside.
So plans for the rest of the day/weekend?
1. Buy a new sports bra- it’s the one piece of running kit (apart from shoes) that I can’t do without.
2 I’m thinking of joining a slimming club. I’ve got 20lb to shift and it isn’t going by itself. There is evidence to suggest that joining a slimming club is the most effective way to successful weight loss.
3 sort out my bathroom scales. Since we move house they won’t link to my phone/iPad. A bit of internet research tells me that Fitbit use the band 2 wavelength instead of band 5 or something like that so you have to go into your wif router and set up a band 2 account or something. Sounds like a pigs arse of a job (I already feel that this is doomed to failure) but I did like having all those stats automatically uploading to my phone.
4 go for another run tomorrow.
