Last week started and ended with cold, crisp but beautiful weather, and so I had a pretty solid week of exercise but with some reduced mileage. Here’s how my week went:
My legs weren’t feeling it after my Sunday run, but the crisp and dry evening coupled with a full moon meant that we had to enjoy a lovely evening walk. The moon accompanied us for the whole walk, dipping behind a cloud only once. Gorgeous!
Time: 58m 24s
As it was the 1st December, it was time to kick off another Great Run Solo Accumulator Challenge. The December challenge is to do 12 runs before Christmas Day, so I thought I’d better get started, with 4miles around the harbour. The Christmas lights were definitely increasing in number and this run felt pretty festive!
Time: 44m 48s
Elevation: 79 ft
No photos from my kid week walk, which was a short amble to get some extra steps in!
Distance: 1.76 miles
Time: 34m 4s
We woke up to a very light icing-sugar dusting of snow, but by the time I got out at lunchtime the snow had pretty much washed away with the rain. I started out running in the rain, but it cleared during my short lunch run to leave a lovely view of the harbour.
Distance: 3 miles
Time: 30m 54s
Elevation: 46 ft
We had a busy weekend planned, which is unusual for 2020, and so we only had a short window for a run on Saturday morning. We headed out to the timber route and the weather was just perfect: dry, cold and clear. I knew I might manage somewhere between 5k and 4 miles, but I could have quite easily have run much longer if I’d had the time. It was a lovely, lovely run!
Distance: 4.05 miles
Time: 46m 31s
Elevation: 381 ft
And I thought I’d round up this weeks summary with a photo of our village Christmas Tree, made of lobster creels thanks to our wonderful village festival committee, businesses and our Fire and Rescue crew:
We love it!
