A little bit of tempo

This morning I went for my run before heading off into town for a hair appointment and then to meet a friend for lunch before Avon deliveries, washing curtains, washing everything else, a Teddy walk in the gorgeous sunshine and cooking dinner.
It was foggy and cool when I left for my run but it didn't take long to warm up and wrap my spray jacket round my waist. I ran from home past the AIS and on to the main road which was very busy with cars whizzing to work, turned at 5.5km and ran home again. I incorporated 2 x 10mins tempo runs with 3mins jog between each. Part of the second tempo was a bit undulating which made it a little slower than the first tempo.
Total distance: 11km

On the home front the electrician came today, the tiling and grouting is finished in the ensuite and tomorrow the plasterer does his bit and the glass man measures up the area for the shower which will be ready in about a week.. Mr B has been painting skirting boards and we have selected the paint for the walls in our bedroom which he painted this afternoon. Progress is definitely being made although the thought of moving everything back into the bedroom is rather scary! I still have more clearing out to do. 
It feels like we're spring cleaning in Autumn! I have curtains draped everywhere as once I started washing them I just decided to keep going. Here's hoping the gorgeous sunshine that appeared eventually today will continue on for a few more days!


  1. Thanks for warning me. I'll be sure to compliment your hair tomorrow... IF you go to coffee hattless.

    1. I NEVER go hatless after a run Ewen - not a good look, that hat hair! And hat has one 't' - lol!
