30-minute mid-week run. Ran up the hill and the tower stairs, twice.
Lots of fun yesterday getting fresh plants for the garden.

29 sunday - 5 k beach run.
I looked at the calendar and crunched numbers. I would like to run the Amsterdam half marathon in October. Next week would be 15 weeks of training.
A worthy goal to help me choose wisely when eating.

20 friday - run
21 saturday - walk
22 sunday - run 5 k - intervals (with audiofuel)
today's run was the first time I felt like a real runner after returning from my hiatus.
hiatus sounds like it should be a pretty place somewhere. it wasn't.
I'm glad to feel like a runner again.

Today - dog walks x2 in very hot weather. Hot for us anyway. 26 is hot enough (mid-80's). 10 minutes with the kettlebell. And then 4 with the speed rope. I am too sweaty to continue.

I jogged with the dog this morning. Will no doubt take him out again this evening.
Fast bike commute 30 min x 2 (rain going; wind coming);
20 min cycling aerobic fitness test at the University Gym (passed, pronounced over-fat).
Fun with medicine ball and bounce-back "rebounder".
Then some 20kg deadlifts, strict presses and then clean and presses. I finished it with Tabata timing plank and side plank.
That was enough.

bonus today - 4 minutes skipping rope and countless up-n-down the stairs to do the laundry. putting the washer on the 2nd floor seemed like a good idea at the time.

I planned to snub the working world by sleeping late this morning. I was wide awake at 4:30 and on the couch with a book and a cuppa by 5 am. So much for that brilliant idea.
By 7:30 I had that no-sleep headache. I napped with the cat after taking my son to school.
I managed another 5k on the beach this afternoon. I accept that I'm exhausted and need some downtime.
What would you do if you had time to do anything you wanted? Exciting question, isn't it!
