  • January round up

    (photo of Mary Lou Williams, extremely awesome woman pianist, who fucking PWND the fairly dick-centred boogiewoogie piano world, from here. She was all about OWNING the discourse.) I’m back running, desperate to get some serious exercise during the christmas dancing drought. So far it’s going well, except today I did run 2 of week 2 […]

Ran today instead of swimming because I have lots of dancing planned for tomorrow night so I want the less-impactness of swimming for tomorrow. Didn’t run very quickly today because I was a bit […]

And the snot – the snot! But despite the heat, the run left me feeling GREAT. Without the warm up and warm down […]

I think my fitness is up after the weekend, I had a couple of rest days, and I wasn’t stewing over the pain of the run, so I felt better. ….and it looks like I messed […]

    calories: 454 effort: 4/5 distance: 4.6 km duration: 00:35 pace: 07:36 Running after 10am – bad idea. It’s going to be HOT running in summer. I need some sort of plan. Ok, so it took me 3 minutes to run 200m. I’m not sure that’s true. But, at least I’m _consistently_ slow. Weather: hot sunny

Swapping in 2 swims instead of a Wednesday run is a good thing for my knee and hamstrings. Getting hot, though. I’m going to have to run earlier in the morning soon.
