1. My fab friends Matt and Imo are running the MSM (Midnight Sun Marathon) with me in June. Hurrah!
2. I hit the gym this morning for circuits and weights for the first time since my insides were hit with the virus last week. I felt heavy on my feet in class, but soon got into the swing, then followed it up with a solid leg workout.
3. I have located my most-sought-and-drooled-after/over running trainers! Yay! They are magnificent - Asics Gel Kayano 16 - last season's colour, but fab nonetheless.
I'm now on the last few days of my 2-week 'staycation' and it's really great being able to just take some time out. After gym and a little window shopping this morning I breakfasted decadently at Starbys (still there now!) and savoured every mouthful of my soya podge and yoghurt.
Afterwards, I jumped on the train home and grabbed some goodies from the local fruit and veg shop (which I just luuuuuuuurve) which included 3 courgettes, a bag of mushrooms and 2 red onions. I'm making veggie spaghetti putanesca for lunch with courgette "pasta" which I'll make on the spiralizer.
When I was at the fruit and veg shop, the place was quite busy with older people doing their daily shopping. I am always quite touched by how friendly people can be and many of them smiled and chatted to me as I bagged my mushies. When I joined the queue there was one small, elderly lay in front of me who was paying for her veg and chatting to the cashier. I looked at what she had purchased and for some reason it tugged at my heart strings. She had bought one carrot, a small piece of broccoli and 2 bananas. I suppose it made me assume that she was living on her own and I just didn't like the thought of it. In reality I am sure she has a wonderful family who she sees all the time! I'm such a soppy idiot sometimes.
Anyway, here was lunch. I cooked the courgette a little too long so it turned out a little watery, but was still delish. Nom nom nom nom nom nom.....
Now I have to go watch old SATC episodes whilst doing something constructive at the same time to legitimise it i.e. checking out possible accommodation for the MSM. Seeya laters!
