Daily improvements

It’s been a really good day overall.

I started off with a 4k speed run and managed a similar pace to what I was doing at parkrun on Saturday. This is a really good achievement for me, because I’ve always struggled to run solo runs anywhere near as fast as I can in a parkrun or race situation. Perhaps I was helped along for the first half mile by the sight of Geth in the distance, who was running the same route but went out a lot faster than me!

I then spent the first part of the afternoon finishing and submitting my tax return – it’s always a relief to get it done! – followed by the last bit of editing for a client that I needed to finish this week. I’ve also booked a wee trip to Dublin in June for a Duran Duran gig 😀 Super excited…

Marshalling at parkrun tomorrow, so I’ll just be jogging there and back to get my run in.

Dublin 2012
Not quite an OOTD: flashback to the last time I was in Dublin, in March 2012 (fatter days – couldn’t fasten up my coat 🙁 ). Love that Oscar Wilde statue.
