8 April 2011

Between leaving work yesterday afternoon and arriving at work this morning I:

  • Went to the supermarket
  • Watered the garden
  • Went for a 30 min tempo run, plus 1 mile warm up and cool down
  • Had a shower
  • Ate dinner
  • Made a coffee & walnut cake and a batch of raspberry, vanilla & white chocolate cupcakes
  • Made 2 batches of failed icing
  • Did my ironing and packed my bag for a weekend away
  • Sorted out my ipod
  • Slept
  • Got up
  • Fed cats
  • Went for a 4 mile easy run
  • Had a shower
  • Ate toast
  • Resurrected the batches of failed icing and iced the cakes
  • Got back in the shower because I realised I forgot to shave my legs
  • Finished packing

I am quite surprised I didn’t ice my i-pod or iron my legs.

Given this list to prioritise, most normal people would ditch the runs. I know I am odd but I didn’t feel I was making an effort to fit them in. Fitting in the other stuff was the pain.  I can’t remember much about either run, other than that I listened to the same episode of Kermode & Mayo’s film reviews (aka wittertainment) during each and it’s still going, but that doesn’t matter. Sometimes I don’t think about running – I run so I don’t have to think.
