At last! That Sunday was an almost no-sun-day, which in the language of runners means that it was the perfect weather for a long run. For all those sun worshippers out there, I like warm weather and the sun but only when it does not restrict my training. And I like the +15-20 degrees temperature much more. This time, I could do my 20-kilometre long run without having to resort to shorter laps so I would be able to hide a bottle in the bushes to create a makeshift drinking station. In fact, no water was required, it was mild enough! Finally! When you ask me, we could have such a weather all year around. Mild enough to wear a T-shirt or a dress + possible to show off a nice jacket and really ideal for running.
1. Own and live in a house.
Really, the only thing I did was passing by our piece of land during my run. Didn’t even make any money that day.
2. Write AND publish a book.
Kept thinking how I really need to start writing. Oh, procrastination, why are we so tightly linked together?
3. Win a major race.
Good day on this front. 20 km long run after a race and with a good pace: 5.03, heart rate 146. Was supposed to be an easy run and it was. Got my hopes up for the coming half-marathon (18 August). All is well!
Also watched Estonian male marathon runners run at the European Championships. 9th and 17th place, not bad! If anyone wants, I can sell towels with the sweat of those runners. Just kidding or am I? Estonia is small and everybody knows everybody and my husband knows almost every Estonian runner, so…
