Stats of the week - week 52

Total running time: 3 h 12 min
Total distance run: 30 k

Additional workout this week:

Crosstrainer: 3 h and 9,3 k
Cardio Wave (fondly known as "the frog"): 47 min and 11,4 k

I have also lost some weight, which is good given that this was Christmas week. Not that I feel fat, but for the marathon I would like to be about 5kg lighter than I am at the moment.

New year's eve without Dinner for One? Thank God, you can watch that is only about 15 minutes and you can watch it on the internet (
