Well this is a bit of jolt back to reality. This time yesterday I was in a t shirt walking around the streets of Barcelona. Today I'm all layered up and covered in mud after 10 muddy miles in The Look Out on my way to Sainsburys to get some breakfast as got bugger all in the house #marathontraining#roadtobrighton#trailrunning#snowrunning
A small selection of the food offerings in Barcelona this weekend. Back on the healthy eating again as of tomorrow; but until then...pass the chocolates! #foodie#foodporn
What an epic day. Park Guell is amazing, gingerbread houses, mosiacs, snake bench; wow a definite must see. Then off to Camp Nou to see FC Barcelona play Athletico Bilbao; when Messi scored the sound of 95,000 fans celebrating was deafening. Scrummy paella for dinner (@helenc12 you excelled yourself again on the recommendation front!) a solely food post will be put up, be warned! #barcalona#magicalmysterytour#parkguell#campnou#luckygirl
Amazing lunch at @caravelle31. Heuvos rancheros for me and the most amazing chocolate fondant for dessert. And my first pay latte. I will no doubt pay for the dessert later when all the gluten hits my system but my god was it worth it! @helenc12 makes the best suggestions for places to eat
The start of the magical mystery tour has started well. Breakfast at Carluccios with Barry, mum & monkey and now at Gatwick waiting to find out where I'm being taken away to for my birthday by Barry.... #magicalmysterytour#birthdaysurprise#weekendaway
Had a fabulous birthday to celebrate turning 34. Pancakes with coconut yoghurt, maple syrup, nut granola and raspberries for breakfast. Epic day at the spa with a full body massage and an hour long facial (which I fell asleep during 🙈) then all dressed up and out to @cote_brasserie in Wokingham with a great group of friends for dinner. Thanks to everyone for helping me have a great day. Oh and the cutest video from Oliver 😍😍
Some late miles to complete this week's training in The Look Out. Knew it would get dark but slightly misjudged how quickly. The final 4 miles were in the pitch black, and my rather rocketing pace reflects this as I just wanted to get the hell out of Dodge! All my long runs are fuelled by @chiacharge bars, absolutely love them and dinky enough to stash in my pockets and have every 4 miles.
He's been difficult. That's an understatement. Tonight, after his bath as he was curled up on his bed in his towel I tried to talk to him about his behaviour and how it makes me feel. He looked at me from under his eyelashes and said "mummy, you are my best friend, my best friend. I miss you so much" and I just burst into tears. That boy has me wrapped around his little blinking finger! #mummyday#mummyandson#selfie#cuddles#givemestrength
