Look at these colors! This morning in the dunes we had glorious color. The sky was so blue and the trees and grasses were that just sprouted Spring green. Lovely.
It wasn’t warm though. The air was crisp and cool, which is just fine for running. I only managed 6km running and about 1.25km walking. I’m having a hard time building back up to a reasonable distance again after the 12k at Zandvoort in April. I don’t know why. It’s just tough going. What’s a ‘reasonable distance’? For me, 10k. Once I can run 10k without feeling like it’s a death march at the end, then I feel like I’m well on my way to being a runner again.
And being able to run through the dunes to the beach, and back. That makes me feel like a real runner too.
I know I’ll get there – slow but sure. It’s just that none of it is easy. Yet.
Oh! By the way! Tonight is the first episode of a new “Boer Zoekt Vrouw“!! Yea! I love this show. Tonight we will meet the new crop of farmers (haha, get the pun?) and then we’ll have to wait until the Fall to find out who got enough letters to participate in the show and who the women are and who falls for who and who is disappointed and who ends up getting married and living happily ever after. Hope springs eternal; even more so for farmers?
