It was a good week as far as exercise this past week. From Sunday to Saturday (yes, I'm a day late with my blog, but it's been SO busy) I managed 22.04 miles.
That brings me right into my old back yard as far as my virtual walking tour. This week, I've passed Rhuddlan (where one of my favorite castles is) and St. Asaph (where my friends live that I stayed with last year) and Abergele (where one of my cousin's sons is working at the moment). I've just turned onto the Promenade in Colwyn Bay:
It's LOVELY to see the sea again! Everything looks the way it always has. I used to love to come to Colwyn Bay with my Auntie Claudia and Uncle Alwyn when I was little. I'm SO close to my Auntie Beryl's I can practically taste the fairy cakes and trifle already! ...and the best part of it is that, being virtual, they're completely calorie free!
My running clinic is coming along well (hence the good mileage this week). I just did my second day of 3 min running/1 min walking x 6 sets tonight and feel good. It was easier today than it was on Friday; although I still broke through the wall on Friday and completed it.
I bought a new phone app a couple of days ago called "Zombies, Run!" It's a story that you're supposed to listen to as you're training (either walking or running) and, every once in a while in the story, the zombies appear and you have to run for your life (i.e. increase your current speed by at least 20%). I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like a lot of fun.
