Month total 792

I'm still 117 minutes ahead of the 1200 minute a month schedule so barring disasters should manage to get enough time in in December to reach this year's target.

Sunset with Sproet

65 min
Start 16.00
Picked up Sproet and set out in the last of the afternoon light.  Dropped the dog back off at his house when I had about 8k on the Garmin and then did the last couple of k on my own around the edge of the Wilhelminapark.
See route here.  (This is an experiment to see if others can access my
Garmin routes via the link...)Running yesterday and today was easier than on Monday - was it just the hilly bits I was making such heavy going of?

Sproet in Doorn

26 min
Start 14.30

Picked up Sproet from the kennels in Zeist this afternoon and went for a run with him in the woods in Doorn before delivering him home.  Good to run on the hilly paths through the fields and forest where I used to walk almost ever day.  Running didn't go so well - the first 10 minutes went well, after that my lungs seemed to decide they weren't co-operating and I had to stop frequently to get my breath.  Good to see Sproet enjoying interacting with the various dogs we met.  The second one is a Goldiedoodle...

Grey Day

50 min
Start 14.30
As I'd seen on the rain radar that a huge bank of rain was going to descend on the town later in the afternoon I pulled on my shoes and got out in time to jack up my week's total before it started.  Forgot my camera but as the light was so dull and nothing particularly interesting crossed my path this was no major loss.

Boat Run in Vreeswijk

70 min
Start 7.30
Had to be in the harbour in Vreeswijk this morning so had a run there for a change. Great run along the water, wasn't till I got home that I realised I'd even forgotten to put my iPod on.

'Hill training...'
"Is this running thing still such a good idea..."

Caught up with some podcasts.  After a slow start managed to keep going fairly easily, enjoying the clouds.  Slight tenderness in my thighs after the hilly bits on Friday.

Lights On Time

48 min
Start 16.30
Out round Bloeyendaal then back into town to run round the streets enjoying the 'looking through lit windows' time.  I love all the little glimpses of a huge variety of domestic lives this time of day offers.  As there is seldom much in the way of sunset on these dark November afternoons this is my alternative motivation for getting out and running.

Slow restart

Finally got myself and the Garmin out the door again after a severe dip.  My lungs and legs weren't exactly delighted by it all but it's a start...
