Hope everyone is well and not too soggy after this rain we have been having- we were lucky today and it was not too bad- I managed a run after work (only a short one, not quite 3 miles) before it rained here.
I did another Sweatshop run yesterday, and I must say I am loving them- we did the same route as the time I got totally drenched- nice to actually see it this time (and a rabbit- woo!). Although it was a bit strange because there was a girl who was a bit ahead of me, then I caught her up (and had to show her the way as she was not sure) and I eventually ended up about 20m ahead of her (not through trying, but I think she set off fast and slowed, whereas I started off slow and got faster)- anyway, at the end I stopped outside the shop to chat to another girl, and she cut the corner off, sprinted through the car park and into the shop, and sort of made out that she came in before me when I walked back into the shop! I found it weird because it is not timed, like a Parkrun. But it doesn’t bother me (and I finished with 4 people behind me! Unlike the last 2 times where I was totally last)- I don’t mind being at the back anyway.
Exercise has been a bit crammed at the moment- last week I did a run Friday after work, Saturday evening, then we were in Nice until late Thursday night. Then I had a short run Friday morning, before heading off to Brighton. I was going to have a run on Sunday when I got back, but I was so exhausted that I rested instead. This week I went out Monday on my own (about 3.4 miles), the Sweatshop run on Wednesday (and I jogged there and back too- the route is just over 3 miles, but in total it was probably 4.5 miles) and then a short one today. Tomorrow I am off for another hen weekend, so won’t be running until Sunday at least. But hopefully after that I will get back into a routine. Can you believe that the other week I went out running in cycling shorts (would still like some that are slightly longer) because it was so hot?
That was while our bathroom was still being done- explains all the mess in the background!
Today I had goose pimples as the wind was so cold.
We had to go shopping this evening, and it was all worth it when I saw this in Sainsbury’s:
PB&Co- on offer (save 29p!!!)- they had smooth and crunchy, but I got two lots of smooth. Yum. I used to see it in Tescos, but have not seen it there for ages, so it was exciting. Plus some Rooibos Earl Grey to try.
We bought back some yummy chocolate from Nice- white and dark chocolate with coconut, chocolate with popped quinoa (how “blogger”!) and dark chocolate with earl grey tea, which is really yummy!
Oh, and thanks for the comments on the post yesterday- Good Hemp have asked me if there are any other bloggers who fancy trying their products, so if you do, then leave a comment and I will let them know.
Right, have a lovely weekend all- I need to finish packing! 🙂
