High-Fiving Palm Trees

Running, and other aspect of my life.


on January 4, 2013

Hoorah!!!  Got up this morning and just decided to get it over with, so I put on my running gear before anything else.  Then I pottered about for a while until I really felt like doing something else which I wasn’t allowed to do until I’d been running and off I set!

5.51k along the riverbank.  Lovely weather sun shining excellent tunes being shuffled on my Running Playlist. It was a breeze!

Tunes that I listened to

Mr. Blue Sky – ELO

Wake up Boo – Boo Radleys

Come on Eileen – Dexy’s Midnight Runners

Shang-a-Lang – Bay City Rollers

Bat out of Hell – Meatloaf

I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas

I Knew the Bride – Dave Edmunds

Hey Baby – Bruce Channel  (just the right time for something a little slower)

Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Queen.

Finished off with a quick burst of AudioFuel to get me back to the car!

Arrived home, husband and dog out, so decided to go in the hot tub to ease any aches and pains. Lovely and relaxing. (Well we are on holiday)

Then decided to be be healthy and take plunge in freezing swimming pool. Walked down the steps to mid thigh.  Told myself to imagine that I was in a Spa.  I was talking out loud to myself at this point as I felt my legs begin to turn blue.  “You’re at Champneys, you wouldn’t scream if you were at Champneys, you’d be a grown-up and brave and sophisticated. Aaaaaand PLUNGE!! SWEAR WORDS SWEAR WORDS SWEAR WORDS, MANY MANY SWEAR WORDS. Aaaaannndddd OUT!

Bring on Day 5!
