  1. walk
    good To school 1.25 km

    DH took car to work, so I had to walk the kids to school. Left a little later than planned, so walked a little quicker and got them there on time.

      It's nice to be forced into a walk sometimes - I always wonder why I don't do it more often but when the car is there, the walking option isn't always considered!

      I know. School is so close, and the weather is so perfect now, and we lea at the same time whether were walking or driving, but somehow the car always wins...

    Home from school 5.07 km 00:39 12:20 pace

    Ran home from kids' school, took the long way round. First 3km in 18-ish mins; last 2 in about 20. Threw in a little bit of trail running too.

      Thursday. I'm running another relay ultra (all trails) and it's just starting to sink in! I have the longest section, eek! Then I guess it'll be the Jerusalem marathon in march, but I've not decided what distance I want to do yet for that.

      Interesting...It is almost like eating oreos before going to the dentist. Well, not really. Glad to hear you have a clean bill of health Ruth! Congrats and keep up the good work. Also how has it been since the cease-fire? Things back to as normal as they get there I hope?

      Thanks Ben. After someone died in the tel Aviv marathon, many races want a doctors note. This one just "strongly recommended" to get a check up. I know in generally healthy, so it was more a formality than anything else.

      Life since the ceasefire has returned to normal- kids back to school, me back to pounding the pavement. And the teachers didn't strike the first few days back! I think everyone was pleased to get back to routine.

      I am training for an event: 2 weeks on Thursday, I have my second relay ultramarathon. And on the basis that I've done one before, I've been assigned the longest section (30km altogether, over 3 sections. 2 of them are relatively short, flat and easy, but one part is 13km of straight downhill)
