This morning was FREEZING - 1deg overnight but it had reached nearly 8deg when we ran from Black Mountain Peninsula at 9.15am. I wore my spray jacket as a wind break as the wind chill factor was bitter but I warmed up eventually although it took a while for my hands to thaw out! I still wore singlet and shorts under the spray jacket and ran with it unzipped but didn't take it right off.
This morning's run was to Haig Park and back. I ran with Marilyn and Alan and there was plenty of conversation on the way. However my schedule was to run only 40mins so at 42mins when I knew my whereabouts I walked while the others ran. However I couldn't resist running just another 500m on the way to round up the kms and relieve the frustration a little!
Total distance run: 7km
Distance walking: 2km (plus another 4km with Teddy later)
No birthdays today but still plenty of lovely morning tea. I confined myself to two tiny sandwiches and some grapes! There were a number of people running the half on Sunday but just Carol and me running the marathon. Yes, just five more sleeps!
Meanwhile Mr B has made a trip to Bunnings and is building a DIY wardrobe with shelves and towers and I so far filled 6 garbage bags of clothes etc for St Vinnies. There's still loads more to go through yet!
