Rambling and a GIVEAWAY!!


Hullo hullo, is it Sunday night already?!

I have had a great weekend, apart from the having to eat things that cause me upset, but I have been positive about it. Blood tests tomorrow morning- eeek!!

Friday night was a lovely Italian  meal and a walk around the harbour.

Great weekend filled with triathlon and it was great to see Jonny Brownlee take the gold in the sprint championships, and team GB take gold in the relay championships.

Today has been a fab day! A 4 mile run along the seafront this morning, a good time of 34:22 😀 It was actually my longest training run ever!!!! The 10km race I did I actually just turned up for (bit naughty I know!) Same with the Grim that I did! I’ve got 5 weeks left to train for the half marathon, I’m thinking that I may only get up to 10 miles in my training, but be able to finish the run through adrenaline! We shall see what happens over the coming weeks.

Had an ice bath after- brrrrr! And then this lush bowl of porridge made with water, protein powder stirred in, topped with blueberries and cinnamon.

We then went on a 7 mile ramble over the South Downs and Beachy Head way. It was really good. There was a monster of a hill though, that tested us!!! I am now suffering with blisters though on both little toes 😦 We took lots of piccies. I really am lucky to live where I do.

We had a lovely dinner of roast chicken, salad, coleslaw, crusty bread, corn on the cob, fresh runner beans. Followed by strawberries and cream, yum!

It is time to announce my GIVEAWAY!!!! I have been buying and collecting bits and pieces over the last few weeks, and Teapigs very kindly sent me an extra box of each of the teas I am reviewing to give away!
