Since I have SO much to catch you up on, I thought I’d just highlight some of my favourite things from the last few days…
I’ve been loving running on beautiful trails! At the weekend I try to take advantage of the free time I have during the day to hit up new running spots.
Where I live, there isn’t much in the way of trails, but I discovered a GREAT one quite close to me on Saturday! I’m in love! I love the challenge of trail running too, and it is so much more beautiful than my usual miles of busy roads! So I had a great run there:
My coach has just sent me my plans for the next few weeks, and I am excited!! I going to be getting up to where my mileage should be in the next couple of weeks, and building back my long runs!
I’m loving the fact that for the last couple of days I have been able to wear a vest and shorts on runs! At the beginning of this week I was running in a hoodie and running tights!
Such love for my green Tempo shorts <3
I’m loving that I clearly have a natural talent for dancing. On Friday nights I help out at my church’s youth group, and I was forced by some hyper kids into a Just Dance Wii challenge. Having never played it before, I thought I’d be awful, but clearly, I am a talent:
Hell yeahhh!! Won to the track Pump It by The Black Eyed Peas. I think my victory dance should have won bonus points. P.S. They gave my character the name crazy, not me. P.P.S. I’m thinking I should get someone to video my skills in our rematch next week and then make that my first vlog;) P.P.P.S. I am being very sarcastic and really I am an embarrassingly bad dancer!
I’m loving quiz nights! On Saturday night I headed out to a church quiz night with my family…call me a geek but I LOVE these! Made even better by all the food…I demolished an entire tub of grapes and felt slightly tipsy afterwards…
My team JUST came second! We were winning right up until the final round (full score in the round on naming Periodic Table elements…chemistry nerd right here!) and then the final round on Blue Peter presenters(!) killed us haha!
I’m loving peanut butter granola…with CLUSTERS! Granola has to have clusters IMO, otherwise it’s just baked muesli.
So freakin’ good. I demolished the whole batch in less than two days. Recipe to come!
I’m loving Nando’s. It’s a Portuguese chain restaurant, and I think I’ve eaten there three times in the past month. Spicy food is my favourite, so their stuff is PERFECT for me!
Sorry for the dodgy photos! I started with a sharer of warm pitta bread and hummus and then had a veggie burger with sides of ratatouille and luso beans. So good!!
And my tech problems are (*touchwood*) all sorted out now, so I am back to regularly scheduled blogging!

Tell me one thing YOU’RE loving right now! I’ve also been loving watching the World Indoor Athletics Championships on TV! I get so excited and nervous for all the athletes, and it’s so inspirational to watch! Proud of Team GB for coming second in the medals tables!
Do you have a favourite item of running clothing? Mine is my peaked running cap that has saved me on countless rainy runs, but my green tempo shorts are a close second!
On a scale of one (no spice) to ten (SUPER hot), what can you handle in terms of spiciness? I’m definitely not a ten…but maybe an eight or nine even? I love spicy food:)
P.S. Thanks friends for the feedback on my new About page!!
Hope you all have a great week! <3
