Running | 51.43

It snowed last night, so running was a lot easier today, as there was fresh snow over the ice. The snow on the trees was dripping down on me, so all in all it was a bit of a soggy run :-) I upped my running segment to 3.5 minutes running followed by 1 minute walking and this felt really good. I must remember that when it's cold outside and I don't feel like running, that actually I warm up really quickly and it feels brilliant to be out and running on the mountain! Will try and run again on Thursday this week.

The joy of Left Alt + Shift!

1t's the little things that make me happy! For ages I've been trying to work out the quickest way to get German characters (ä ö ü). In Word you can do Insert - Symbol etc, but that doesn't work on websites. And then yesterday I discovered that by doing (Left) ALT + SHIFT I can switch to my German keyboard through Windows, and then it's just a matter of pressing [ ; or ' to get the umlauted characters. Hurrah!
