Crap there goes my identity

If you follow my Facebook posts,,, you will see that yesterday, I posted that I was officially frustrated. That is no lie, I am not sure if it is because 40 is just two months away or if I am just doing what I always do to myself which is over schedule and complicate things.

7 uur geslapen :-)

En dus was ik om 5 uur wakker. Goed of slecht? Ik hou het op goed want wanneer was het voor het laatst dat ik 7 uur aan één stuk heb geslapen? Maar goed, ik heb nog even geprobeerd te blijven liggen in de hoop dat ik toch weer in slaap zou vallen wat uiteraard niet gebeurde. Dus om 5.30 ben ik maar opgestaan, heb een banaan gegeten en rustig een kopje thee gedronken en vervolgens mijn loopschoenen aangetrokken. Na een rondje van ca. 9 km rennen, ben ik begonnen met het klaarmaken van mijn ontbijt.
