Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

When its a sunny day…

OK, yesterday was a sunny day and definitely a nice day. But TWO IN A ROW? SERIOUSLY??? So it is time to get some music on it then. Found this funny one.

When it’s a sunny day,
it puts a smile on my face
I’ll sing a song to keep me happy
When it’s a sunny day

 

Soooo how did this started? Well, late as I was allowed (!) to sleep longer with no interruption (almost). 11am or so, I jumped out of my bed as it was starting to get quite late, right. Short breakfast with chocolate cereals and oat-milk and then chilling out while folding clothes at home and/or playing with the smalle ones. A bit of shopping for running apparels for G&E and then back home for snacks before they leave to athletics. T went to friends and I jumped into my gear for a run. This is a first time run for my Adidas Supernova shorts from Boston and IJUSTLOVETHEM! To add to the coolest shorts ever on the planet, add my Semi de Paris 2013 t-shirt (Yellow), my Boston black caps (I know, it was in the men’ department, but the Adidas guy to who I asked whether I should take the woman caps (white) or the man caps (black) said: “you have WAAAAAYYYY more attitude with the black one!”… what do you think I need more for choosing?) my windbreaker on and to the whole thing I decided to have my Brooks Green Silenece. But Blue/green was not really matching the rest, so it became my Saucony Kinvara 3. As for the little ones, my orange sunglasses were best to complete the outfit. So they followed as well! Aaaaaand off I went.

Starting slow, sun in the face, lots of people out… Niiiiice! Noticed the pace was under 5/km, even though I was feeling that it was going slow… Run there and there and there… Try to run uphill on the top of my feet (ouch! for the calves!!!) and accelerating in the downhill (ouch! for the… well, actually nothing, no ouch at all! just running down and enjoying). Then reached another harbour (where most of the pic are taken) – sooo nice feeling in the air. Warm on bare legs, windy from time to time. Juuuuuust enjoying to the highest degree. So different to run now on this route than when it was early sunday morning in January, with snow, cold and darkness… Stopped by a friend to get water and got even more: chocolate and sugar! Yippie! this was really needed. I will have to map the friends I have along my run as this is definitely something I would do again – i.e. run-run-run and complete the run by someone’s house 🙂 OK, they might think that I might not smell that nice by then if this is the end of a 30+run but with a nice smile on my face, they should let me in, right? 😉 – 14,2km in 1:09:05. Good feeling in the body, mind perfectly floating around and enjoying the sun – what else do one need, really?
End of the day pretty easy, marinated spareribs in the oven with French fries in the oven as well… no veggies – lots of fun time and laugh! Perfect ending of the day.

> summary: nice morning start, great run, perfect end of the run, superb dinner and now a good night’s sleep ahead. When it’s a sunny day…

Time to sleep now – loooong week ahead (but still recovery week)

I would DEFINITELY jump into this water... if it was not guaranteed to be freezing cold!

  1. KalasvĂ€der. “Synd” att London Marathon skulle gĂ„ just den dagen, annars hade en annan ocksĂ„ haft kortbyxor. Vaknade dock 6 och ut före 8 i helstĂ€ll. Men det kommer fler dagar.
