- Tomorrow R. has his last motor race of this season. It will be nice that he’s home more often during the weekends. When he has a race he leaves around 6 am and comes home around 8 pm.
- My dear friend K., who works for the same company as I do, is leaving our company. She’s got a great job offer and took it. It’s a step forward for her and I’m very happy for her. She deserves it.
But I’m going to miss her a lot. It will be weird not seeing her on workdays. There will be more dinner dates in the future for us. We already had 2 dates planned to see a musical.
K. I know you’re reading my blog, you were the first to read it. Thank you for all the fun times we had together at work and outside the office. And thank you for giving me that push over 2 years ago to pick up running. Have lots of fun at your new job and make it a success but I know you will!
- My mother in law is still at the nursery home but she’s making progress and is doing fine.
This week my own Mom called me, she has to go to the hospital too in 3 weeks. Her legs are always hurting and they want to examine that in the hospital.
This morning it was time to do my long run. I didn’t really want to do this run, wanted to stay in bed a little longer. When I got up, I wanted to go back to bed. I’m still not recovered a 100% from my cold, I’m getting there but it’s taking longer than usual. Anyway I sucked it up and went. I used a 15:1 ratio and I’m going to stick with this till after my half marathon because it works great for me. I don’t think in distance but only in 15 minutes of running a time which makes it mentally a lot easier for me. I ended up doing the distance I had to do and afterwards I’m glad I did do it. The weather was absolutely perfect for running, Autumn is definitely my favourite running season.
R. bought this sweet bread for me at the bakery this morning. A well deserved treat after my run!
