And we’re off!

That is what it feels like- this week is like a race to the finish line! 1/5 done already!

I did 6 miles today, but this week I am having no interval or anything like that, just general mileage. I was tired (probably still from the 12 miles on Saturday) so I just took it easy, didn’t look at the time or anything. I managed it in 61.5 minutes, so I am pretty pleased as I felt much slower.

I tried to make sure I was fuelled during the day more, so I added a banana to my breakfast, and some clementines with my afternoon snack (although that was a fail as I forgot about them to ended up eating them after dinner). Hmm. I also had some muesli last night (scrummy dessert!) to top up the carbs in the evening!

Today with dinner I had some Twinnings English Breakfast tea;

This picture is mainly an excuse to show you one of my teapots! Do you know that I have four teapots? Pretty impressive for a two person household! I love some tea with my dinner (and I know you are not supposed to due to the tea inhibiting iron absorption, but I like it too much!).

Anyway, that is all for now.Β Six miles done, one run ticked off this week already, so not bad for a monday πŸ™‚ As for the comments yesterday, I am glad so many people are loving the H&B buy one get one half price deal- never realised those big tubs of pb are loved by so many! I am still on my last big tub so have not opened the new ones yet. And I do love the idea of oats in a massive tub!

  1. Firstly, I tried your pumpkin (well, I used b/nut squash) pasta for my dinner and you are officially a culinary genius. I had to use severe self restraint not to eat the entire batch…I stopped at 1.5 servings, but only just πŸ˜‰

    I love your teapot! I am a mug fiend/nerd so definitely get where your coming from there.

    And I can’t believe people actually forget to eat things, even when they’re super-busy! Ah well, I have a lot to learn. I love that muesli cooked as porridge…methinks I might try it ‘straight up’ for brekkie tomorrow.


    1. I did not make up the recipe though, but glad you liked it πŸ™‚
      Oh I like the idea of making that into porridge- might try that tomorrow

  2. Was just thinking how much I love your teapot when I read “This picture is mainly an excuse to show you one of my teapots!” :-).

    Well done with the running, I’v been thinking of starting up again over the past few weeks – not marathons just yet but your progress is inspiring.


  3. Glad you liked the teapot guys! Another whitard special (they make the cutest ones).(and yes Laura I need bigger cupboards as already have started a teapot collection haha)
    Emma- thanks you are right, once I was out there and just decided to take it easy it was fine.
    Lara-thanks for that to :)You should for sure take up running again!

  4. You with your teapots make me laugh so much! πŸ™‚

    Great call on the running this week. I think it’s a good idea to just do steady miles when you’re really busy and pressured with other stuff. It’s a good way of having a mini cut-back

  5. Alison- they are not supposed to make you laugh they are meant to make you go out and buy yourself more teapots πŸ˜‰
    Yeah I think after 12 miles which is longest mileage by far for ages, a gentle week is what is required.
    Jemma- thanks for that, and glad you are also a teapot fan πŸ™‚
