Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Can’t you see me? I look like a freaking Christmas tree…

Ok. Silence is over. New laptop on my desk since three weeks. But time is not enough. Today happened something though. And I need to complain a bit.
Rewind: following Chicago I took a full running-free week. Body felt all good. The mind stated to complain by Saturday… As it felt all fine, especially for the calf,  then I started easy run again. Annoying few weeks with calf issue but now it looks better. Still issue to find time, but this is another story.
Back to this morning. Awaken at 2:38am by the coughing concert from E&T, could not sleep back and it felt pretty early (!!!) for a run. Waited 4:30am for light core exercises and then gear on for morning intervals. It felt chilly (8°C on my phone,  2°C on my watch…) hade decided “hard core” gear: shorts, 2 tshirts, arm and calve sleeves and neck warmer and bonnet. Felt all fine. Nothing much about the intervals but on the way back home,  I just got bumped by a car… From nowhere… and that disappear as fat as it came and hit me.  Pretty chocked. Got back home anyway and did check with the nurse what to do (basically nothing). Got to work and the carousel of meetings started again. Well back home again, prepared all for fajitas evening before heading out again. Chillier and even slippery at parts,  the run did go well.

So what about the post title? Well,  when the darkness fall into the city I chose carefully my heart so I can be seen. Fluo yello, pink,  green, blue, mix of all… Just pick and you’ll have one of my outfit. In the top of this,  LED on the skies and one on the arm. As I said I look like a freaking Christmas tree!  So how on earth could this car miss me and hit me?  Watch up, drivers. You are more dangerous than a elk crossing a motorway when you are not awaken and driving.
Surely ended fine as I apparently have no bruise. But still!

Time to rest. More running awaiting tomorrow.

Keep on running!

  1. Yikes! Scary. So glad you are okay. It is a hilarious comparison, the running gear to a Christmas tree. Spot on!
