I did it! I ran my 6K today. It was though, it was hard but it was so much fun too!
It was in the woods, I’ve never run in the woods before. There were two really big hillswhich I had to take twice, I couldn’t run to the top so I walked and there were lots of lower hills. I even had to jump over a big piece of wood. My time was 46.42 (at 3K 22.30), a bit slower than I have planned but I hadn’t expect such big hills and there was a lot of wind. It stayed dry till about 10 minutes before my finish, it then started to rain very hard so I ran a little bit faster then.
I already know I want to do this next year again and then try to improve my time.

What’s for dinner:
Yesterday I’ve made a sandwich with rocket salad, tomato, egg and fricandeau.
For snacking we had some cheese and some piece of saucage meat.
Sunday smoothie (yes it’s back, I still make one every sunday but forget to make the picture):
pineapple, forest fruits, a bit of low-fat yoghurt and pineapple juice.
Yesterday I did my housekeeping and we made the garden ready for winter, trimed where necessary. We had a quiet night at home. R. was watching tv, I was making some Japanese puzzles and did some reading.
Today has been all about the 6K run, as soon as we got home I made hot tea for the both of us and had a piece of chocolate with it, I really thought I deserved that.
Tomorrow is the start of my new set goals till Christmas. So that means lots of working out, eating healthy and lose some weight.
