Day 800: Half-Winter

We have entered a period of weather worse than freezing cold. I’d call it half-winter. The temperature is a few degrees on the plus side or around zero, meaning that all that snow is melting. The pouring rain does make way for the spring but with these amounts of snow we’ve had, it doesn’t come instantly. At first, there are puddles everywhere and fields of ice. It’s worse than running in thick snow because on bumpy ice it’s just impossible. When you look at the sky, it seems like bad Estonian summer: raining. When you look at the ground: ice and remnants of snow. Let’s continue calling it half-winter. And in this half-winter, I have no idea where to run my 20-kilometre long Sunday run without falling down.

Progress Report

1. Own and live in a house.

Did visit the office for a few hours but this didn’t create any income. Just providing a service that has been paid for already. Also, I am seriously thinking about getting a real-real job, something that would not mean being self-employed, something that would pay more.

2. Write AND publish a book.

Finished Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train. Will be writing a blog post for my future website about this on Monday. It will be an analysis of this book. I am truly interested in why it is a bestseller.

3. Win a major race.

A tough indoor arena workout. The plan was to run 8×600 metres. Managed to run 5×600 m and then finished off with 3×400 m. If you are a woman and you are running on painkillers because of a stomach and backache, then that’s quite OK. The last hard workout before an easier week.
