Week 3 – running recap

This was my birthday week 🙂 I have let myself down by not being able to run the HM as mentioned in my previous post. But I have managed to properly celebrate the last 30 years. I said my goodbyes to certain habits. And I am fully ready to take on board the next 30 years feeling strong and committed.

WD3D1: Friday The only reason why I reached my daily goal was because we went shopping after work. On those rear occasions when my partner and I can actually go shopping together, we go full on strong. 🙂 and broke very quickly. Basically you can sell us anything. We are horrible together and dangerous alone.

WD3D2: Saturday I haven’t managed to accomplish my goal, which was strange as we went to Ascot Races. Basically we were on our feet all afternoon walking around, looking at horses and trying to figure out the next bet. The weather was crapy; rainy then sunny, we saw double rainbow at one point. But the spirit of the race was incredible.

WD3D3: Sunday my parents left and we were thinking what to do for the next two days. We decided to go to the Celtic Manor for a late-weekend-treat. I recommend their Sunday offers, they are truly great value for money. I wouldn’t say they are 5 star service wise, however there are many facilities you can indulge during your stay.

WD3D4: On Monday we played the Roman course. The first 9 holes with two lovely chaps from Bournemouth and we carried on with the back nine romantically alone. This was the first time for both of us to play this course, which was in a great condition apart form the 10th green. But it was enough to hit my daily goal on Health. Then we relaxed in the Health Club for another hour before hitting the road.

WD3D5: Tuesday = Birthday 🙂
I felt completely relaxed/necked and wanted to stay in all day. We were marathon-series-watching all day. I actually finished off the whole series of Banshee at 4:30 am next day, when my partner woke up to go to work. I then went to sleep as I wasn’t starting work until 3 pm on Wednesday.

WD3D6: On Wednesday I went for a 30 min run before work, which felt very moderate at a time, however it sucked the energy out of me for the rest of the day. At work and I couldn’t stop yawning. In the afternoon I felt very inspired by a new person I met. It was great to spend an hour and half to get to know her. At the end she hugged me and said thank you for the warm welcome. The whole experience made my day.

WD3D7: Thursday was another running day. I followed a very similar path as the day before. I attempted to take a pic while running but as you can see it came out very blurry. I guess it is similar to my vision when I run in the wind. I look like I am crying when the wind blows. I think I am not alone with this issue. If you can recommend anything to prevent this, please reveal your secret in the comments below.
