February was a busy month. I’ve increased the days at one of my regular contracts, so work life is pretty full. I’ve still managed to find time for exercise and reading.
It’s been great attending both EH3 Milers and PubRun every week. Both fun and sociable, with the benefit that I get the motivation to run more often.
I spent a weekend near Ilkley with Harriet and her friends. It was a lovely trip, including a quick 8km run up onto one of the nearby hills. We had a good pub lunch at the Cow and Calf.
The last weekend of the month I spent in Kirkcudbright, with a lovely short cycle in the spring sunshine.
Two books this month, both recommended.
- Extreme Economies: Survival, Failure, Future – Lessons from the World’s Limits by Richard Davies – a good read examining challenges that we will face in the future, aging, technology, inequality and natural disasters.
- The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone by Olivia Laing. A tour of art examining loneliness in the city.
A couple of the links that I have found interesting to read this month:
