Tada! Our first apple of the year, picked yesterday evening. Supposed to be ready in September, but I couldn’t resist trying one, as they were so red already – just look at that polish! We have about ten different varieties grown as cordons against a wall, so plenty more apple pics to come. Not quite fully ripe yet, but tasty all the same.
Yay! I ran 5k again today, only the second time this month, and about the tenth one ever, since the first one back in February. Can’t say I enjoyed it much – from about 2 minutes in, I was ready to stop, and my calves were complaining much more than usual, I suppose from the lack of practice at longer runs, so serves me right.
Still, at about 25 minutes I realised I wasn’t thinking about my legs or my breathing any more – I was thinking about blogs, and what makes us think the way we do about things – but I will save the details for a few days, so as not to pre-empt someone else’s interesting project. Watch this space for more information next week. 🙂 (No giving it away now!)
So, with that distraction, instead of stopping at 30 minutes, I kept going until I’d done 5k, which took me 45 minutes, which is ok. Had another apple as a reward, and some lemon and lime curd on a rice-cake. Nom nom nom. 🙂
PS Just edited apple name – I got mixed up. Discovery looks similar and is also an early variety.
