DONE IT! W9 nailed!

Up in the woods by 7.30, sans dog : husband taking him for a 7-mile run. I set off on my wonky circuit, lovely morning, not too cold, not too hot, not raining. The steep bit of uphill at about the 20-min mark nearly killed me but I kept on going, but I was back at the car, stretched and done at about 8.10.

Now stuffing down my healthsome porridge (with extra treacle...) in a glow - mostly my usual post-run neon-pinkness, but some of just smugness.

Next job: get graduate badge.

  • Well done!

    Sounds like a Goldilocks kind of day to me ... not too hot, not too cold, porridge. But porridge with treacle? Golden syrup or demerara sugar for me any day :)

  • Treacle as in treacle tart treacle: golden syrup. Not black treacle, which is only used in fruit cakes and Xmas pud.

  • PS Thanks for the congratulations.

  • Well done! Congratulations on your graduation: and excellent achievement. Feel proud. Feel very proud!
