No changes in the food department, still eating healthy, drinking enough water and eat my fruits and veggies.
Yesterday was my last training of my 10K program: an interval training. I had to go before dinner because I had to do something else after dinner (see thought) but yesterday was a hot day.
I went terrible! I had to speed up 4 times in the training. I managed the first two, by the third I just kept on jogging my normal speed and after that I even had to walk. I just must not run when it’s above 25 degrees (77F) so I won’t do that anymore. Fortunately fall is arriving and the temperatures will be nicer to run in.
My 10K is Sunday in 2 weeks and my program is finished. From now on I will run 2 times on working days: 1 5K run and 1 interval training and 1 time in the weekend: 10K.
Today’s a day of rest.
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday a simple dinner: a piece of pork meat, potatoes and broccoli.
Today I’ve made mushrooms with onions and bacon, baked potatoes with Italian herbs and a salad with feta cheese.
Ever since I’ve lost my dad to cancer in 2000 I am a volunteer for the Dutch anti cancer campaign. Every year in the first week of September I collect for money for the fight against cancer in two streets nearby my home. That’s what I did yesterday evening.
I was so touched by a little girl of about 10 years old. She opened the door and I told her what I was coming for. She said her mother wasn’t home so I said that I might come back later this week.
No, wait, she said and she ran upstairs. She came down with about a dollar and gave it to me.
So I’ve asked her if she got that money from her piggy bank and she said yes. And I found that so sweet of her.
Tonight I had an appointment at my beauty salon. I go there every 8 weeks for a facial treatment and a neck and shoulder massage so right now I’m feeling kind of sleeping from the massage
Beautiful weather, productive working day, relaxing treatment at the beauty salon.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
