I am not a fan of the clocks going back. Although light mornings are nice, in a few weeks it will be dark again anyway. And now, when I get home, it is dark which means it feels like the day is already ending. I mean, unless you do shift work/ part time work, can anybody get through the winter without getting up in the dark? Even if you don’t need to be at work until 9 or something, it will still be dark when you get up. Unless I suppose you live right by work and roll right out of bed. OK, moan over!
After work I gobbled down a seedstacked flapjack (love those), quicjly changed into my running gear and headed out. It was getting dark by the time I left, so I had to find a new running route as my current after work 5 mile route goes around the lakes, and there is no street lighting or anything like that, and I do not feel safe in the park. So it was back to running laps of a residential busy street. It is ok, but not scenic, and I had to stop loads as there are loads of roads to cross. All in all I managed just under 5 miles in 48 minutes, and at one point I had to stop and sort out my trousers (the zips at my ankles had worked their way loose), plus loads of stopping at roads, so I think I kept up a good pace. It felt quite fast, which is what I wanted. 🙂
Once home it was time for some lovely teapigs chocolate tea with coconut milk- my new fave combo! I am running low on supplies- uh-oh!
So, how do you feel about the clocks going back?
Oh, and stay tuned for some exciting teapigs new tomorrow 😉
