As if the excitement of all the parcels yesterday was not enough, today I got even more! One parcel was a present for a friend, but another one was for the cookie swap! How exciting! Aisha sent me some vanilla cupcakes (for my blog name) and some indian biscuits called Tepla. I cannot wait to try them and have a cupcake lined up to accomany tea and TV later on! She was also so kind to put in a little Jamie Oliver cook book- how kind 🙂 The cupcakes travelled remarkably well (I was too chicken to send cupcakes!!)- they have pretty icing, glitter, little shapes on them. Love it!
It was so exciting to open it and not know what was inside- like a non-birthday present! I love surprises 🙂
On other subjects, I decided not to run today. Partly it would have been a rush to fit it in after work as I had someone coming to do a quote for some work on the house, and partly because my leg has been niggling. Only a tiny bit, but it feels like if I do a sudden twisty movement then I will make it worse. Normally it is feeling ok, but I decided that rest would do more good- I want to have fresh working legs on Sunday.
Something I am looking forward to is on Saturday I am volunteering at a race, and I have not done so before. It is a local race but as I had already booked the sunday race I didn’t want to do 2 in a row, so decided to help when I saw it on the website. So anyone know what to expect? It’s a 10K for cancer research, and I am at the finish line.
Also tomorrow is my beloved body pump. I am undecided whether to go- the moves are mostly slow so I am thinking it will be good to do some exercise that won’t make my leg more sore. Plus I am feeling antsy and think it will help me feel better. I know I could go and have lower weights for the squats, and no weights for the lunges if it is sore. So anyt thoughts? Writing down the pros and cons seems to help- all the tracks for arms and chest will be fine, so I think I should go. Yes, I am pretty sure I will go.
Excuse that last ramble!
