Quick Week Recap!
|November 24, 2013||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Uncategorized|
After a 54 hour work week, it’s safe to say that I’m pretty darn tired! It’s a good thing that I love my job, because despite the long hours this week, I’ve really enjoyed it! Inbetween fitting in my runs and working, I’ve had very little time to do anything else (like blogging or having a social life haha!) so here’s a quick recap of my week…
There have been lots of early pre-work morning workouts! If I don’t get it done first thing, then usually it won’t happen at all, so it’s 5am or bust! My favourite ones are Monday mornings (awesome spin class followed my an easy run) and Wednesday mornings (BodyPump followed by an easy run). My legs feel like jelly for the first few minutes of each run, but then I get in the groove and it feels amazing. I usually run about 6 miles at recovery pace, and I leave the gym with the most ridiculous grin on my face every time. Morning runs make my whole day great
Not a round number = bothered me endlessly! Does anyone else have this problem?!
And then I bundle up with a ton of layers and cozy scarves (it has gotten freeeeezing here in London!) and head out into the cold and off to work!
Yesterday I was sent to work in Selfridges (I was SO lamely excited about this!), aka “the best department store in the world”…or so they have written on their doors anyway Incidentally, the security for Selfridges workers is worse than airport security. After checking my passport(?!), drivers licence. AND going through my bag, I was given a badge and let loose on the shop floor! Their mistake there obviously. Maybe they should up the security a bit more…
Selfridges is so pretty and Christmassy right now! Obsessed. I’m planning to come back on Friday to do all my Christmas shopping (TIP OFF it’s a store-wide 20% off day!), not least because they’re always handing out samples in the Food Hall;) I made BFFs with the guys at Godiva in my lunchbreak and shamelessly munched away on all their samples whilst chatting away to them.
Talking of BFFs it was my best friend Catherine’s birthday yesterday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY CATHERZ) and because I was working, we couldn’t do anything, but I have this coming Friday off so we’re going out for birthday cocktails to celebrate! Here’s a fun flashback to that time Catherine, myself and a few of our friends thought it would be a good idea to dress up in our animal onesies and take public transport. Oh the things 15 year-olds find amusing… (Disclaimer: I actually still find this hilarious. What maturity?!)
Catherine is our cow leader and I am the apparently stoned monkey on the left
In Catherine, I found a fellow weirdo and an amazing friend and hugger. Friends and hugs are my favourite.

Anyway, I had better get to sleep. Those 5am alarms are only made easier and by seeing this little face first thing
ISN’T HE THE CUTEST?!
What was the highlight of your weekend? Free Godiva samples. Don’t judge. They were like little bites of heaven.
Are you a coffee drinker? How many do you have a day? I usually have about three coffees a day…is that normal?!
When do you get your Christmas shopping done? I usually do it in the last week before Christmas but I HATE leaving it that late and swear to do it earlier every year! So this year I’m aiming to get most of it done before December hits to avoid all panic shopping!
Have an amazing week friends! <3
