Morning Run - Xmas streak, day 4

in EXHAUST3 months ago

I just finished a 7.044km running that lasted about 0hh:39mm:34ss !

As I went to bed Storm Bella was being very noisy, but all was calm this morning with blue skies. I did not see much sign of damage apart from lots of small branches scattered around and some toppled bins.

I did a lap of Fairfield today which means running up the nearest decent hill. Still nothing compared to what a lot of people climb all the time. There were lots of people about including a few runners and a lady on her horse. I think one guy was running with a weighted vest. It is hard enough for me as it is.

My legs are holding out pretty well with the daily runs. My Garmin watch suggests I rest for a couple of days after each run, but I seem to recover well.

I am now thinking of carrying through this streak to new year's day. That will be a good finish to the year. I just hope the weather is okay. It is due to get colder this week and we may even get some snow.

This time of year can be a bit of a dead time as not much is happening unless you are working. The running gives me something to do.

Run free, stay well and may your days be merry and bright.

Good work :) I am happy that I am still running despite the cold and snow. I wish I can continue this momentum to the new year.

What is a hurricane or was it just some sort of named depression? I haven't heard about Bella at all. That is awesome that you were able to get out and run. Also nice that the damage was minimal. We have snow on the ground and are sitting at about 25 degrees right now. Looks like we will probably be in for the day unless we start to get stir crazy!

Bella is just a named storm. High winds here, but worse elsewhere with some flooding in places. Any snow tends to bring chaos around us as we do not cope well with it, but no sign of any yet.

Ah, okay. Typically around here many people forget how to drive when the first snow comes, but then as the second and third hit they tend to get back into the groove of things. It is definitely a skill that requires lots of practice.

I just got back from a walk with the dog. I was hoping to make it to the beach to take some photos but it seems I've taken on a little too much fluid this morning 😅 I heard the wind last night but I think we got off lightly. There's lots of flooding about though.

My daughter is usually down in Portsmouth and it was pretty bad down there with 100mph winds. I have not seen any serious damage around here. My dad was out in Bedford and the river is really high there.

Thanks for continuing to make Hive awesome.
