International Women’s Day

As I too belong to the generation of Husak’s children and know what is the difference between Marie Kabrhelova and a Japanese calculator, I grew up among the red carnations, pioneer scarfs and  International Women’s Day celebrations. Luckily those red dark times are far behind us. Today, inspired by 12HonzaDe,  I decided to celebrate by running.

Dressed in my old North Sea Jazz T-shirt (I am back to my 2002 size!) with Chicago music in my earphones I jumped onto the treadmill… and ran a magic distance of 8.3 km.

And as a thank you to my Czech readers, here is one I couldn’t resist:

Janathon Day 30

Something tells me this week’s blogs will resemble the blogs written in week 1: weather reports. So here we go: frost, snow and most annoyingly: ICE. Ice is not bad when one plans to go skating (coming weekend I hope). But it is a killer when one makes preparations for an evening run.

So I re-dressed and re-shoed and headed towards the gym again. Since I cought the run-outside bug I don’t feel like going there all the time anymore. So as I was walking from the car park (no bike tonight), I was trying to figure out how to survive the work out. And then it hit me: It was this blog entry by PaintedRunner that inspired me: I looked up the musical collection on my iPod. The hour on the elliptical cross trainer flew by.

Btw, was this how planking started?
