Sunday: The Day of Rest
Things I've done today instead of running:
Reading: Women Who Run with the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. I'm one chapter in and wondering why it took me to long to pick this book up.
Cooking: A breakfast of honey-cured bacon, hash browns, kransky sausages, grilled tomatoes, eggs and sourdour bread. A lunch of the Moosewood Cookbook's minestrone, with some pastrami tossed through and a good dose of chilli. Unfortunately for Hamish I 'Pipped' the Minestrone!
Clearing out: Several superfluous household items that have been loitering in the spare room for too long. Listed on Trademe, and if they don't sell I will take them to the Salvation Army.
Wearing: My fabulous new Addidas running shoes. I doubt I'm going to take two months to break these in. They feel so light, flexible and comfy! I can't wait to run in them.
Walking: Around my neighbourhood this afternoon. I left in warm sunny weather, but the wind was blowing strongly from the South. By the time I made it home a storm was blowing in off the white-capped strait. As I brought the washing in from the veranda the wind blew the drying rack over.
Listening: To Media Watch on National Radio, the Americana Show and Roots and Culture on Radio Active, and the Greg Johnson CD I got free with my new running shoes.
