That Went Well 

Had a great night with a colleague last night helping her with her Diploma. She was in a bit of a pickle getting some coherence to her case study submission. We mainly focused on getting the right bullet points on to paper and she’ll flesh it out from there. She’s a smart cookie and it was great working with her and debating contexts, answers and ways to present the information. Reminds me of how much fun work can be when you work with smart people. Makes such a difference!

Anyway, she bought pizza over and a couple of soft drinks so not so good the diet front. But I did do a 4km run before we started and there was no alcohol to be seen.

Got another 5km run tonight to round out the month so should hit around 119-120km for January. That’s equal to June 2016’s best where I ran a half marathon. So happy to be building up the consistency and frequency of (almost) daily running. Actually the table below probably doesn’t show that. Running today would mean 18 days running out of a possible 31, or a ratio of 58% which is pretty shit! (the stars indicates races at parkrun).

 

parkrun (one word, all lower case) is a free, timed run every Saturday starting at 8am. It’s great fun and the best part is it’s all about a race against yourself, if you want. You can walk, jog, run, bring your dog, push a pram (with a kid in it otherwise you’d look weird!)

Plus, as I mentioned in a previous post, you can run alongside someone to keep your pace up and push them at the same time. In the end you’ll likely end up with a better time, if that’s what you’re after.

Anyway, take it one day at a time. 😉
