Today was a beautiful day and the wind was cool and strong – not enough to stop me going for a run. Well, that’s what I thought as I was leaving the house!
After last Monday’s effort, where I felt I could run my best time on the 4km track, I started off on the 5km loop and within 800m had an ice-cream headache. Mine comes inside my ears and it feels like both ear drums will explode. The wind was cool and fierce and before I knew it, I had to walk. That’s the first time I’ve ever had to walk this year. Couldn’t even manage a shuffle in some parts. I’ve been told it could be because I’m dehydrated but I thought I had that covered today. 😦
While it was disappointing, and slow, it was still good to be outdoors, taking in all this:
I spent a lot of time on the computer today, listening to the Tibetan bells and ocean sounds, setting up a Google+ account for fitfor15in15. I wonder if it will be worth the trouble?! My friend Kate from The Outdoor Diaries helped out. Thanks Kate!
- Physically Fit: 5km walk/run
- Mentally Fit: Setting up Google+ for the blog. It still needs a lot of work and I need to learn more!
- Nutritionally Fit: Third fasting day on the 5:2 Diet – 500 calories

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Winter has arrived in BrizVegas (for a few days at least). After a long summer as expected all of a sudden it has got cold (well cold for us). Maximum of 21 degrees and strong winds today so they are telling us it will feel like 17 degrees. So, of a sort, I can understand your issue. I am going to Sydney today for a meeting and am hoping the plane is not too delayed because of winds – I left some wriggle room but only some. Enjoy the tulips

I’ve seen the weather in Sydney today and wow – doesn’t look good! Especially around the beaches with all the sand erosion. Will take a while to fix that. Hope your plane arrived safely and on time for you Judy! Rug up!
[…] cool and windy here today and I’m nervous about heading out (because of what happened last time in these conditions). I’ll wait until this afternoon, when I’m completely hydrated and […]
