This past week can be summarized by these four words.
Traveling : I was in Germany 3 days for work. I was not in a big town but had to eat. I ventured into a restaurant where nothing was in English. It was a humbling experience because mostly I travel to big cities where English is not a problem. I just assume everything is in English and everyone speaks English. While the Germans do generally speak great English, it was not as fluent in this small town as it usually is.
On the menu I understood burger and sweet potato fries. What I got wasn’t 100% what I was expecting but when I am hungry I will eat almost anything.
Enjoying : It was in the low 70s here in France this weekend and in the 60s all of last week. We went to the countryside a bit, and I got to run outside and take advantage of the sumptuous, fantastic, wonderful warm weather. Look how green everything is.
Bingeing : We have been watching the Walking Dead. I never thought I would like anything with zombies but the whole family can’t get enough of it ! In less than 10 days we are halfway through Season 3. While I close my eyes for all the gore, I like the people, how the relationships evolve, the survival instincts. Definitely a far cry from CSI !
Running : I ran four times this week, as called for in my training plan (Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday & my long run Saturday morning). It was a total of 34 km (22 miles) and 4 hours 10 minutes of run time. I haven’t managed to work in other kinds of fitness. I want to go to the pool but wasn’t around when it was open, and want to do some weight training but preferred being outside to the gym.
There were so many dogs out while I was on my long run. I ran in parts of the forrest / park I don’t usually venture to, so it was nice having something new to entertain me.
How is the weather in your neck of the woods ? Do you like the Walking Dead ? Have a great week !
