Day 836: Slow Day

It was a slow day at home. An easy run in the not-so-easy conditions because it was snowing again. A lot. There was a small heap of snow on my eyebrows. Outside, I even had frosted eyebrows. They did melt when I got back in. The roads were also covered with snow which meant that I wasn’t moving fast. As it was an easy run where I didn’t have to make an effort, this was fine. On such runs, I rarely even look at the watch. There is no pace-objective. I do need to occasionally check the heart rate because it shouldn’t be too high on an easy run. I tend to go too fast when I am supposed to go slow. No matter how many times my trainer has told me that going slow during training doesn’t make me slow for the competitions, I still find myself going faster than necessary. When I follow my heart (rate), it does get better.

Progress Report

1. Own and live in a house.

A slow day at home meant some home office working for me. Actually, it is not an office, it’s a kitchen table. We do have a small desk in the living room, nicely separated with a bookshelf, but the desk itself is always too crowded with random stuff. So, I work in the kitchen.

2. Write AND publish a book.

Yes, I did continue typing in the menus and recipes. The 31-day meal plan book is on its way!

3. Win a major race.

An easy slow run. Don’t need to expect too much from it.
