After I told this in a comment on MissZippy’s blog I thought it would be nice to share it on my own blog too.
One of my managers is a runner too. He runs every Sunday morning in the dunes where he lives. Last Sunday we had bad weather in Holland. It rained a lot and hard and where he lives there was a very strong wind too. Not great running weather.
He told me on Monday that normally on a Sunday the runners out there are 60% men and 40% women. But this Sunday when the weather was so bad there were 90% women and 10% men running.
Guess this tells all about who are the toughest runners out there, right?
US: FEMALE RUNNERS!
We don’t let a bit of rain and wind scare us …
Yesterday it was time for Pilates again. As usual it was a great class. The great thing about this teacher is that she has a different class every week. Some exercises are the same but the class is always different and I like that because I’m easily bored at group classes. Yesterday we worked at abs, back, legs and core stability.
After a terrible run on Monday afternoon, I did today’s run at 5.30 am and it went so much better. Monday my legs hurt so much I almost couldn’t move, today they were in perfect shape.
I’m no afternoon/evening runner, that’s something I already knew and all the afternoon runs in the past weeks have confirmed that again. Next week I’m going to do all my runs in the morning and see how that goes. It’s getting lighter now and it won’t be long before I can do my runs outside my village again in the morning.
Weather: dry, not much wind, 0C (32 degrees)
Distance: 6.4 K / 4 miles
Average time: 7:05 /km

Last song on Ipod before finish: Robbie Williams – Tripping

In February I didn’t have much cooking inspiration and didn’t want to post it on my blog. But one of my goals for March is to try more new recipes and post the meals on my blog again. Today we had noodles with mixed vegetables and chicken.
