Autumn is a-coming...

...only two weeks ago this was my bliss on Sunday early morning

I was sitting with a cuppa and a Japanese Crochet pattern book on my balcony being so hot from the sun, that I had to come inside after only 15 minutes again.

This weekend all you could see was thick fog, and the only way to enjoy a cuppa and good read would have been wrapped up in gloves, hat and a jacket. I don't actually mind, I just can't deal with the extreme fall in temperatures sometimes - on Friday we were sweating like pigs and today it's chilly.

But on the other hand, this helped my this morning during my 1km run, as for a change I was not dripping in sweat when I came back home.

Yup, that's right - I have started running/jogging/power-walking 14 days ago. Despite me walking as good as everywhere and eating healthy I was just not shifting the weight. To top it all off my cross-trainer decided to die on me after two years of service and I had to look at other means of keeping fit.

So, we started to power walk/jog three times a week. The first day was awful, I thought I was going to die for sure. My knees were giving in and quite painful but it is getting easier and easier every time.
This morning I just pushed myself to make sure I just ran all the way from our house to the castle at the seafront which is a 1km distance. I was so proud of myself and almost made it all the way back in a jog too.

I am so channelling my inner  Linford Christie - watch out!


  1. well, boo for crappy weather but hooray that you're feeling better about power walking/jogging!

  2. Good for you, Kim!! Way to go starting to run/job/power walk. :) I am so impressed........I don't think I could run out to my mailbox and back without getting super exhausted.
    Keep up the good work!


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment - I do appreciate it a lot.
