I'm on a two-day business trip. It is a 3-hour drive so I figured I should get up at 5:30 - way too early for me!
I woke up before the alarm at 4:30. I stayed in bed, hoping to to get back to sleep.
When I realized that was not going to happen, I climbed out of bed.
About 2 inches of snow fell during the night, it was o oC (32 oF), the sky black, no wind.
Doesn't sound very inviting, does it? : )
But I know weather is always much better when I'm out running than how it looked like from the window, so off I went at 5:15.
The black cloudy sky was beautiful above the whiteness, and the weather was pleasantly mild. The two running shirts felt OK, I wasn't cold during the warm-up walk, even a bit warm during the run.
The streets were empty. I ran 30 minutes around the park.
Running on fresh snow is safe and comfortable. Someone here in a blog comment wrote it is like running on a sandy beach. I never ran on a sandy beach but I imagine it is like this.
It was still dark when I got home at 6:00.
I left home at 7:00 and arrived on time to meet the clients at 10:00.
Had a long, tiring working day, but it was not stressful and I made good progress.
I arrived at the hotel at 19:30. This is the first time I stay at this hotel, there is an elevator which brings directly to the swimming pools - too bad I was in a hurry in the morning and forgot to pack my swimming suit. Next time I'll bring it for sure!
After eating my packed dinner I talked a few minutes on the phone with my husband and about an hour with my daughter. Now it is time for an early night.
