It’ll be no great surprise to hear that I’m a little tired today or that I overslept – I only woke as I heard my housemate get up and luckily she was in extra early today so it meant I still made it in for 9am 🙂 I remembered as I was getting ready that I’d signed a workmate and myself up to go on a walk and talk session from 12-1pm with Iain Webb from The Wildlife Trust to find out what birds we have in the woodlands on Granta Park (the place we work) so I made sure I put some outdoor shoes in the car. I knew I had a busy day ahead and my feet were still a tad sore from Saturday so I wasn’t sure it was the best idea but we ended up really enjoying it – the guide Iain really seemed to know his stuff and it was nice to get out of the office and explore some of the woodland on the park – some of which I’d not really been aware of before today. The bird species we heard and/or saw today included:
Lesser Black Backed Gull
Long Tail Tit
We also spotted two cinnabar moths.
As I expected I might, I ended up working late so didn’t make badminton tonight but pretty knackered anyway so maybe it’s not the worst thing. Instead I thought I might cycle to the gym and run on the treadmill before going for a quick swim (30 lengths or so) and then head home to bed (after a yummy dinner of course!) However, this grand plan quickly reduced to just a short run on the treadmill – it was raining as I drove home which ruled out the cycling option and by the time I got to the gym i had very limited time for the run let alone anything else plus feeling very much in really can’t be arsed mode today – hope it dissapears after some good sleep tonight! Today was certainly one of those days that if it hadn’t been for Juneathon by the time I’d finished work I certainly would not have gone for a run. I started my run at 22:20 on the treadmill, a little earlier than last night granted, and clocked up 2.6 miles in just under 23 minutes before I had to give up and get out so they could close the gym! Here’s hoping for a better Juneathon effort tomorrow 🙂
