I headed out in such high spirits this afternoon for a speedy 5km run, after so many long runs recently I thought it would be easy. Boy was I wrong. I went too fast on the first km and after that it was a right slog. Lesson learnt, eat more before runs. I had a nice bath after though to make up for it.
I did also get 4 hours of reading done which means I’ve finished Harry Potter! It took me seven weeks which I’m really proud of. I even had time in the evening to do some work whilst watching the first film! I’m going to be properly swotted up in time for the studio tour in April!
My mum was meant to be here this weekend but unfortunately she got Covid so we had to rearrange. So I found myself suddenly with two spare days to fill. Nic and I decided to go to Westfield to get some shopping done as we so rarely do a proper shopping day. It wasn’t entirely successful, as I only got two pairs of pajamas, but I do love them, so I think it was still worth the trip!
Okay maybe just one more relaxation day. I’m grateful it’s Friday today as I’ve done about 45 hours of work this week not including traveling to Leeds. I’m knackered, so after work I popped in the bath to help myself chill out. Here’s me post bath, happily getting ready for an early night!
The last two days were pretty full on, so I was pleased to get the chance to rest today after work with my feet up. I made loads more progress with reading Harry Potter (last book!) and we lit our lovely springtime Jo Malone candle which filled the house with a gorgeous floral scent.
Today went swimmingly! I really enjoyed meeting all the team in person and we made excellent progress which I’m really happy with. It snowed for the afternoon, but luckily that didn’t hinder either our spirits or our train ride back to London in the afternoon.
For the first time since before covid I headed off to Leeds this evening with a few co-workers to visit a clients office and the team I’ve been working for the last year. I’m seriously excited as it’s just so fun to be out of the office again for work and I’m sure it’s going to be a very successful trip.
How’s that for an almighty Monday salad. Hot salads are definitely one of my favourite meals. This one was really great apart from some of the leaves were super bitter. But we’re trying to get more veggies into our diet so this is one way to get there!
Today Corinne and I walked section 2 and 3 of the capital ring, kicking off from where we left off last time. We walked 12.5miles today, with Nic joining us for the last 4. It was a really lovely day but my hip is now quite sore… Maybe 25 miles in one weekend wasn’t my smartest move after all.
I ran another half marathon today! That’s my first time ever I think that I’ve done two weeks in a row. It was a bit tough at mile nine but I managed to bring it back for the last three miles. What’s spurring me on at the moment is all the blossom that is out. It makes me smile every single time I see it, a beautiful sight of warmer days to come! But not before a bit of snow apparently next week…
