The Pages and the Miles #2: Sunday 9 December

The closer we get to Christmas, the busier I seem to be! This week has flown by and I’ve mostly worked so not much to report this week.

The Pages

This week I’ve only read from Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas.  Given that it’s 980 pages and I’m still really busy at work, I expect that this will be a common paragraph for the next couple of weeks.  I am really enjoying it but it’s just so long!  I’m no stranger to long books but at the moment, this one feels like it doesn’t quite need to be as long as it is and it feels a little bit repetitive. I’m now about 300 or so pages in so things are starting to liven up!

The Miles

It’s been a terrible week for running too! I was away with work for the first half of the week and didn’t have space for my running kit in the case I hastily pulled together.  I was then hoping to go for a long run yesterday evening but it was very dark and the weather was utterly terrible so I wimped out! I might do a post to try and garner tips for running in the cold and wet but I suspect the main thing to it might just be “stop being a wimp”.

I managed a single run of 4.2km, which is borderline embarrassing…it was at a quicker pace than I normally run but even so, not a good weekly total. It leaves me with more to do next week but I’ll catch up!

Onward and upward!  Let me know what you’ve been reading and if you have any tips for runs in dire weather!
