Sunday was a day of running errands for me. I had to pop over to Muswell Hill to pick up a Birthday present along with some grocery items I forgot to get the other day. I could probably have just stayed around home, but I was feeling a bit of cabin fever and thought a trip on the bus would do me some good.
On the way I dropped off a rather large bag of clothes to the Cancer Research charity store. I feel like it is my good deed done any time I go through my wardrobe. There is always someone out there that would love to be wearing my hand me downs! Some of you might know that cancer has affected my family in many ways - so donating old clothes is just another great way of raising money for research.
I was a bit tired when I got home and before I knew it, any sign of daylight had disappeared and the night was well and truly setting in. I decided to man up and go for a run. Manning up meant I had to pull out the big guns!
How is this weather for a bit of alright? NOT!
Let me introduce to you - the big guns! Yes, my old Famous Stars and Straps long socks. Nike Capris tucked in of course ;) Tres attractive!
I put a long sleeved shirt on under my Nike running shirt as well. I had no idea how this outfit would work on its maiden voyage out of the house on a cold night so I was a little bit nervous. Luckily, it was a massive success and I felt warm and cosy my whole run!
I am pretty pleased that I managed to keep up a good pace tonight as well as yesterday's run. I ran 2.3km up the road and turned around to come back again. I only wanted to run 5K so as soon as the Nike lady told me it was time, I threw a U Turn and started off back home again.
When I got home my GPS told me that I was still a little off 5k so I had to run down the road and back a few times. I tried to sprint these out as fast as possible and must have looked AWESOME to the two people having a ciggie out the front of Number 55.
#runnergirlproblems - what the hell is up, back sweat?! It's like some kind of flower/devil/random ink blot test. Don't ask. I have no idea how I managed to create that. I must be a true artist. It just happened ;)
When I got home I completed the above ab workout. You can find details on where to download the iPhone app here ;)
Dinner was a Sainsburys Be Good to Yourself Lamb Korma. It was around 350 calories and was a nice warm dinner (since I couldn't be bothered cooking anything!).
Nom nom nom! Trust me, it tasted a lot nicer than it looked. Curry always has a way of doing that.
Dessert was an Options Mint Hot Chocolate with some low calorie whip on top. Well.. I say some but I really mean half the can.
Have you ever sprayed whipped cream right into your mouth? I haven't done it since I was a teenager - I forgot how awesome it was.
