Frog Pose and Summer Reading List

HEY friends!! How y’all doing? I hope your Sunday was filled with pancakes
Yep, it’s Sunday, and that generally means THREE AWESOME THINGS for me.
1. Long Run
Well today’s longer run was a bit rubbish actually.
Doing the frog pose on the pavement’s verges was definitely the highlight. If you think you get a lot of honks just running in shorts, then try doing this:
This was seriously tough mentally, and having to stop a lot to try to stretch out the pain was zapping my motivation and energy. I had to really slow the run down to try to stop the pain, but it was pretty persistent. It felt SO GOOD to be done though, AND with no shin pain!
This is yet another reminder that listening to your body is SO important! I KNEW I shouldn’t have run when I felt my hip being funky when I woke up, but I ignored that and paid for it! I think it’s fine now after proper stretching and icing, but it definitely taught me an important lesson!
2. Pancake Sunday
Seriously, I love my church group buddies so much and they know me too freakin well. It was our last group meet before we all go away (I go on Wednesday!!) so there was a lot of food to celebrate. They bought Pringles specially for me cos they’re vegan, (they are my CRACK!!)…
Now if that isn’t love I don’t know what is
More sale buys!! Love cheap stuff!! I bought some beautiful shoes which you’ll see later too. I also got started on buying up my Summer Reading List, as recommended by YOU!
Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen.
Room by Emma Donoghue
And Book 2 of the Hunger Games Series: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I’m getting a couple more too (I’m a fast reader!) so if you have any more recommendations, then I’d love to hear!
What was the highlight of your Sunday? Actually, it was seeing all the amazing donations and comments on my fundraising post! I want to thank you all SO MUCH for your kindness and generosity, and if you haven’t already donated, then please do! It’s to raise money for Christian Aid, and you can win a Garmin Forerunner or a Vitamix in the process! Details here.
What gets you through mentally tough runs? Dreaming about pancakes got me through today’s!
What’s on your summer reading list?
I’m off to bed now! HUGS <3
