Gooood afternoon friends! Seriously TGIF! I have been battling another virus on my laptop for most of the week…I swear I am the most technically challenged person on the planet! But it’s finally back to normal (although without most of my work sadly!) , so I’ve got a lot to catch you guys up on!
Running has been going great! I’ve been doing more hard sessions recently, which has been fun, but tough!! Yesterday’s workout was particularly hard for me…5×600’s with a ~5 second negative split in the last half. I always find 600’s hard, and picking up the pace so much in the last 300m made it much tougher! It was even harder than usual since I was doing the workout with a 400m/800m runner! My speed was no match for hers, and she was so far ahead of me on every rep, but trying to chase her definitely pushed me!
On an endorphin high! And procrastinating my strengthening and stretching routine;)
I also managed to do the entire workout with the tag still on my shorts. Doubly stupid because I remember doing the exact same thing just a couple of months ago haha! I never learn.
I am absolutely LOVING evening sessions on the track right now. It is still quite warm, but dark, floodlit and peaceful…I love it:)
I am nervous and excited for the weekend, because I am running a new-to-me race, which I’ll talk more about tomorrow!
On the foodie front, I made some amazing new snack bars, which taste kinda like peanut butter Rice Krispy treats, but better:) Recipe to come soon!
I have rediscovered my love for pretzels. They are in the above bars, and I also love dipping them repeatedly in almond butter:
Yes, my pretzels are shaped like stars…try not to be too jealous of my crazy life;)
I also went shopping yesterday and found a giant Lindor chocolate. It cost a tenner, and was bigger than my head! And trust me when I say that that is saying something!
Anyway I am headed back out now to enjoy the SUNSHINE! Sure, talking about the weather is boring or whatever but I am too happy about it not to mention it! I have spent most of my time recently lying on the grass studying, napping, and chilling with friends. It has been awesome!
Apologies for the scary face. I’m not used to sunshine so it makes me a little crazy.
What has been the best bit of your week? I really want to hear about YOUR week!! I’m always talking about my life, so I’d love to hear about yours!
Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend? I’ve got a fun church event on Saturday, and then I’m racing on Sunday!
Random (materialistic) question of the day: if you had unlimited money right now, what would you buy? Right now, I would buy a trip to Hawaii. I went in the summer and I miss it so much! Or an anti-gravity treadmill, because that sounds like the most fun thing in the world!
Have an amazing day! <3
