Evening all 🙂
Last night I had aerobics, which was fun as usual. I also had the last piece of my pumpkin gingerbread 🙁 But on the up side, I have loads of new recipes to try, thanks for all the suggestions already on the teapigs giveaway.
After work today I had planned a run, and even though traffic was awful and I was home later than planned, I made myself go out. I did about a mile of steady running as a warm up, then spent the next mile and a half running intervals (20 counts fast, 20 counts slower as recovery- probably works out as 45 seconds each but I don’t time it), then another mile or so to cool down. Nothing interesting to report, but I was feeling very tired by the time I got back. Work has been busy and I only managed a 10 minute lunch, and I hate eating fast, so I think partly that was why I felt tired.
Anyhoo, once showered and tidied up, the two of us went out for dinner. Ages ago Andy set us up a challenge on Nike+ (loser buys dinner)- to run the most miles before the start of October. At first we were neck and neck, but in the end I took the prize! We went to Prezzo (have not been there for ages) and they do a new thing now- smaller flatbread pizzas with salads (or smaller bowls of pasta with salad) instead of one massive pizza. I had a lovely flatbread pizza with yellow and red cherry tomatoes and mozzerella. I like the current trend of restaurants making “lighter choices” on the menu- like those pizza express ones with the holes in the middle. It is so easy when eating out to eat way too much food, so I like it when they give an portion controlled option.
Actually what was most exciting was that my new boots got a proper outing- they have only been to Waitrose to get pumpkin before today haha!
