After my mid-January slump, I returned to Janathon with a pilates session and a return to the pool. I did not venture to the pool last week, much to my dismay, so it was a welcome relief to get back in the water. On top of that, my underswitch drills, which had caused so much gnashing of teeth and dark mutterings the last time I tried them, went a great deal better this time. Practice may not (yet) make perfect, but it seems that it does at least help a bit.
Today was turned on it’s head when we pulled the curtains back to see a fresh blanket of snow outside. Venturing outside, we watched several cars take a rather interesting approach to driving down our road, mostly spent travelling sideways. As both Mrs Running Buffet and I could work from home, we decided against travelling and cranked the heating up instead.
Turning my laptop off several hours later, there was still a little daylight in the sky and I decided to head out for a short walk. Crunching through the snow I made my way along the Granite Way, my old running route. In the fields below, the local children made full use of the snow: sledging and skidding in the evening cold.
Not too energetic a day, but an enjoyable evening walk in the snow nonetheless. And best of all, returning home I found Mrs RB cooking up a delicious wintery dinner from the odds and ends in the cupboards and the fridge.
A brisk walk in the snow and a warming dinner. You can’t get much better than that now, can you?
