Sunday Jan 21 #

10 AM

Running 32:34 [3] 6.4 km (5:05 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23

Back in Paris and headed out for a tired and slow run in the rain. Heaps of runners out on a Sunday morning, which is typical for this time of year as everyone gears up for the Paris half-Marathon and marathon in the next few months. Hamstrings very tight. Need to stretch more....

Running (Washington DC) 1:01:56 [3] 12.0 km (5:10 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23

Took advice from a local runner to head to the Rocky Creek valley where there was supposed to be a nice trail in secluded forest. But it must have been elsewhere in the valley as I wound up on a bike path next to a major busy road. It was fine though and took in a few new sights (Kennedy Center, Jefferson Memorial). Went longer than I meant to, mostly because I couldn't find an easy way back from the Jefferson Memorial to the Mall - confronted by a mass of flyovers and roads with no obvious way through. So took a longe route back to the hotel and was pretty tired by the time I arrived. Not quite what I had in mind and not ideal preparation for a full day of meetings! But it meant I slept really well on the overnight flight back to Paris later that day. This is a brutal flight as it it is only 6 1/2 hours so very little time to get settled and have a sleep. But managed to grab 4 hours nonetheless, aided by being very tired from the run!

Running (Washington DC) 40:35 [3] 7.8 km (5:12 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23

In Washington DC for work. Time zone difference works really well here for running. Was wide awake at 3.30am and did some work before heading out for a nice pre-dawn run around some of the DC monuments. Very cold (-7 degrees) but clear and still. Lovely running conditions. A surprising number of runners out and about at that hour of the day, about half of whom were female.

Running 41:01 [3] 7.4 km (5:33 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23

Snuck in a morning run before heading to the airport for a flight. Very dark, wet, cold and windy. Not pleasant conditions at all, but plodded along okay. Felt virtuous afterwards.

Very wet, cold and windy today, and had a very enjoyable run despite of the conditions. Good character-building outing!
