It was 2010
I am not one to dwell.
I tested the hammy over 10km on Wednesday, after a long day walking around a shopping centre, happily it held up well.
Thursday I rested because I did a heap of gardening and that was enough really being that I am soft as shite when it comes to manual labour and was flat out nanna napping by the late afternoon.
This morning I ran the Victorian Road Runners New Years Eve fun run, third time now so I guess you could say it is becoming a bit of a tradition. 10 slack arse days was pretty telling as I pushed off to a slow start before ramping up to just under 5 minutes kms towards the end to finish in a very average for me 41:12. It was never going to be stellar, just very happy to report that the hammy got me around with nary a protest, not even up Anderson St.
It’s been a lovely day with friends thus far, running the tan with Carol and then off to meet Cilla for a natter and a mighty fine breakfast at a local cafe (sigh, I miss inner city life sometimes where cafes carry breakfast menus that are more imaginative than store bought muesli dumped in a bowl), looking forward to more catch ups tonight.
Umm, the personal stylist thing, you know I think it was just mum being slack with the birthday present thing, she’d already got it for my sister and just figured, oh well, may as well tack Em on as well she KNOWS it’s not my bag. Anyway, I just tagged along behind making the appropriate “ohh that’s nice” comments when my sister tried things on. It was lovely to spend the day with my little sis and I know she appreciated a day out at the shops without a boisterous toddler to look after.
My poor giant and very thickly furred Russian Blue cat is not at all happy with the weather today, right now he is sacked out on an ice pack that I have wrapped in a tea towel for him, dreaming of the steppes no doubt.
By the way, did I mention? Hammy is Aok!!
