Half training – Week 4: Wednesday/Good Friday

An eclectic post today – training update; March sunrise and hot cross buns!

Training

Wednesday: As promised, I did 6.6km in 37:56 for a pace of 5:46… took it a bit easy but I’m not used to running consecutive days so I didn’t want to push it!

Friday: 5.1km in 30.22 at a pace of 5.55.  Gearing up for a 7 mile (11.3km) group run tomorrow morning!

Also: crocuses! (yes, hopeless picture I know – I was using my old old phone).

First spring crocuses.

March Sunrise

I realised nearly too late I hadn’t seen the sunrise this month (as per 2013 Resolutions), so I set my alarm for 6.30am and got up to see this:

Sunrise for March - 6.40am.

Good Friday

So I’ve come to discover that in the US they don’t really celebrate Easter like in the UK or Australia.  There are plenty of Easter eggs/chocolate to be sure, and plenty of religious things going on… but no public holidays on Friday or Monday and no hot cross buns!  This is a problem.

However, there is a “chic” (i.e. overpriced but REALLY good) deli type place in Cambridge called Formaggio Kitchen where I managed to find these ($2.50 each!):

Hot Cross Buns... made with icing?

They don’t look or feel as they should exactly…but I’m not going to complain! We’ll try them tomorrow.

Do you know of anywhere that sells real Hot Cross Buns in Boston?
