I did it!! 1 mile swim at Swim Serpentine this afternoon. Over the moon, took it steady and finished strong, no panicking at the cold water and loved it.
Stayed to support @vikkir_c doing the 2 mile to complete her London Classics, all smiles despite the cold and pouring rain.
Throwback Thursday. This time last year I ran my first marathon. And I'm sat here crying at the pride i have in myself. I ran a marathon. Scratch that, I've run TWO marathons. The last one broke me, but I genuinely cannot wait to get back out there. This Sunday is supposed to be my 3rd, but a torn hip put paid to that.
Everyone running Loch Ness marathon, please dedicate a mile to me.
Thank you to @vikkir_c for running both with me, looking forward to getting back on my feet and running some more with you xx
Wow what a workout. Short, sweet & sweaty!
5min warm up
5x 1min efforts with 30secs recovery
5min cool down
Why does the minute feel like forever and the 30sec feel like nothing?!
(Meant to post yesterday 🙄)
Pizza for lunch today. Can you guess which half is for who?
Balsamic onions, figs, gorgonzola and prosciutto for me; ketchup, prosciutto & mozzarella for monkey. On a @bfreefoods pizza base so gluten free. Absolutely delicious and will definitely be having again (even monkey agrees)
Love my parkrun adventures with Zena!
Today saw an early start to head round the M25 to St Albans and Heartwood Forest parkrun. This beautiful little venue will be relocating in 3 weeks time so we wanted to take this opportunity to run it.
Zena got 2nd lady, and I got 2nd to last lady 😂😂.
Absolutely hilarious slip of the tongue during the first timers briefing, and the most epic tail walker in Tracy, thank you so much to all the volunteers for your patience as well. If you can get to this course next week or the 4th October, please do, you won't be disappointed
Serious tasty burrata salad with dukkah from a @waitroseandpartners recipe.
Griddled mini courgettes, tomatoes, avocado, dill, burrata and dukkah.
Never had burrata before but wowsers I'll be having it again, rich, creamy and perfect for this salad when it oozed and mixed with the extra virgin olive oil and dukkah
