I won’t be doing a review over November. I’ll post my final results of this year at the end of this month.
- It was my best month with exercise this year, I moved for 26 hours and 27 minutes. Can you believe almost 20 hours of that was walking with Bella and about 100K (62 miles)?
- Bella and I took 4 long walks in November.
- I even ran a little more K’s than in October.
- I finished “The Coachroach” by Jo Nesbø and continued in his next book “The Redbreast”.
- It was the month of R.’s birthday which we celebrated with a delicious dinner.
I got one! I got an original Shelley hat! Yesterday a package arrived in the mail and when I saw it was from Shelley I almost immediately knew what was in it because I’ve been nagging her about one everytime she finished one. And now I got my own beautiful pink hat which I will wear proudly on the cold Dutch Winter days:
Thank you so much sweet Shelley, I love it!
Week 7 started today. The weather was perfect for running: not to cold and no wind. I had my thermo clothes underneath my running clothes but that was too warm actually. I didn’t watch my pace during the running intervals and just ran at what pace felt fine. I was a bit slower than the last runs but the intervals were a bit longer too. Overall I was happy with this run.
Distance: 4.5 K / 2.8 miles
Running: 5-6-7-8 minutes.
Paces: 6:44 – 6:44 – 6:49 – 6:39
Weather: dry, no wind, 3C (37 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Simple Plan – Summer paradise
X-TrainFit Chest & Back. Total time 43 minutes.
The total workout exists of 3 circuits of the same chest and back exercises. I did 2 circuits today.
Photo a day challenge:
As I mentioned last week I joined two photo challenges on closed FB groups. I’m sharing them on my blog too. On Tuesday I will do a recap of last week’s photo a day challenge. On Thursday/Friday I’ll share the week of 365 Days In Nature.
December 1: Red.
Saw these red berries on my walk last Saturday.
December 2: Where I stood.
Stood on this train track last Saturday when I had to cross it during our walk.
December 3: Silver.
This was a difficult one, I thought of something Christmas but saw a lot of that today. I choose a glass with silver where we burn little lights in at night.
Sunday December 1
I made a vegetable soup with the soup vegetables from the Beebox: it was delicious. I made bruschetta with pesto, tomato and mozzarella cheese (all from the Beebox) to eat with it.
Monday December 2
Time to try the Soester tubers: I cooked them and then mashed them. I made a kind of stew of the Romanesco with tomatoes and we had a meat ball with cheese and mustard to go with it. I liked it, R. not so much.
Tuesday December 3
I was home late and I knew I would and had planned an easy dinner: pork, baked potatoes, carrots/green peas. Ready in 15 minutes.
