I am feeling rather smug this morning writing this, after watching England beat New Zealand yesterday for only the seventh time in history! It was a great game and I was lucky enough to be at the stadium to watch it live.
Before the rugby I went for a 4.5 mile run along the river on one of the routes that I used to run when I was training for the marathon last year.
It was freezing when I got up, and as I haven’t been running outside that much lately I didn’t really know what to wear. I ended up looking like a cat burglar all in black!
It was pretty foggy and frosty outside- so beautiful but quite chilly!
It felt great being out running along the river again, I have missed it! It was lovely knowing that I could just run as far and as fast (slow!!!) as I wanted without having a set number of miles to do. I’d forgotten that running can be fun.
So many rowers out on the river- they must have been even colder than I was! I cannot imagine how hard it must be to get up that early every Saturday morning and train on the river.
An added incentive was knowing I got to come home and open the first window of my advent calender. Happy December- let the Christmas festivities begin.
Then we headed over to the rugby. We wanted to get there early to avoid the crowds on the trains and to enjoy a couple of drinks before the game.
Some of us got more dressed up than others…
Well done England. We certainly needed the win! Have a great weekend everyone.
