This month it's quite a mix of threads as I've been working on all kinds of smaller projects.
This weekend has been rather productive, too productive to share it all in one post! Since I'll be blogging daily for the rest of November I'll need to spread things out a little. I did the finishing on my exchange ornament for next weekend.
Being in the finishing groove, I also did the finishing on the six JBW Doves I stitched up earlier this year. I like the simplicity of this finish.
In the last few weeks I've started running again, albeit slowly and with frequent walk breaks. This weekend I braved the cooler weathers and got out on Saturday for a "long run" on my favourite trail! I did over 7km walking 2 minutes, running 2 minutes. There's something about being on this trail that I just love that I'm willing to bundle up and risk getting rained on to spend time on it. I pretty much had it to myself, only running into one person in the 70 minutes I was on it.
Today I did a shorter run in my village, over 3K. This time in increased my run intervals since it was a shorter distance. I walked 2 minutes and ran for 4.
I'm so happy to be running again, I had to stop due to a foot injury, a month ago I hand a cortisone injection and so far it seems to be doing its job... For now. The last one I had only lasted six weeks. When I run I feel powerful, I feel alive, unstoppable. I just ordered a new pair of running shoes and I look forward to hopefully picking them up this week. I'm taking it slow and trying not to push myself too hard hoping that my foot will hold up.
