Project 52 so far. Initially it started out as a project to read 52 books in a year. I doubt that is possible though let’s keep going with the spirit of the project. 40 days in, four books read.
I took a rest after training four days in a row. I was feeling fresh on the fourth day and at the time thought I did a pretty conservative session: 40 min @ 4:17/km with the last 4 min @ 3:45/km followed by a 21 minute strength session.
Friday, the day after, I was feeling tired so I decided to rest. Now I’m ready to go again. The trainer is calling me and I will most likely do the 9:00/1:00 set in some former other.
I’ve planned my reading list for 2016:
I did a short run and a short swim. Both short because of the row and strength training I did the day before. Swim wasn’t that slow but as is the case when specific fitness is lost, the fatigue set in pretty fast afterwards. I’m now feeling the effects pretty hard.
Last year was my worse reading year ever – I doubt I even read ten books.
To address this, I’m going to set a goal: 52-52 That is to say, read 52 books in 52 weeks. I’ve started already so expect to finish before new years eve 2016.
Book #1 is: “A Brief History of Seven Killings” by Marlon James. Start with a classic.
The plan is to mix fiction and non-fiction but the emphasis being on fiction.
One book a week. Shouldn’t be too difficult.
