Parkrun Parkfunday...

I am finally back on the roads and trying to improve my running..

Last week we started back doing Parkrun on a Saturday mornings.

For those who do not know, Parkrun is a free weekly 5km timed run. There is most probably an event going on near you? as there is hundreds going on all around the world.

9 a.m on a Saturday morning.

Why did we stop?


Family fun! 

Timed run!

Only 5km!


I do not know why we stopped!?!

It is a great way to spend quality time with my children, doing something we all love.

 Last week me and my 2nd oldest son took park, this week me, my 2nd oldest son and youngest son took part. 

Next week my husband may join us!?! 

Just got to get my daughter into running now...

For some reason this year I have fallen out of love with running. I am hoping that trying to do most Saturdays ( when husband is not at work in the mornings ) morning runs will help me love running again.

No more excuses, from me !?!..

Got to be in it to win it  improve my running :):)

Life Lately...

Hi everyone, 

Wow it has been a mad month or so!! 

I know lots of my usual post have changed due to Christmas coming,. 

Yeah I love sharing guest food posts around this time of year for us all to try, I know, I think a lot about yummy food in December. This past month I have been painting, aww once you start one room everywhere else gets messed up don't it? 

Then when I finish my daughters room I started on our living room. 

Glad it is all done and dusted now, well nearly, just a boarder to sort out in the room!

Change Of Plan...

A long run was planned for me today as I had to add some miles onto my training. With only 3 weeks until my Robin Hood half marathon I have only manage one or two run above 6 miles with the school holidays. I decided to run so far out and turn around at 10 miles, my husband drives home along this road from work so we had arranged he could pick me up.

Armed with my water bottle filled with pop, my Garmin to time the miles and distance and my I-pod to keep me singing along the way.

Wow I though Nottingham was just around the corner as it only takes you 45 minutes in the car but not when you try and run there!! it feels like it could take forever. Happily singing to Eminem, Pink and of course the lovely Robbie Williams the sun was on my side, popping behind the clouds every so often so not to make me to warm. Miles down the road I ended up at a cross road. Do I wait to cross the busy road or change my route plan to make it 10 miles before I turn around?

I changed my route, up the hill and into a side street only to run into a bush full of wasps!! I could see them flying around my head in my shadow, how lucky was I not to get stung by one? Phew I turned around crossed the road and quickly started heading for home.

Up to12 miles felt good but last mile I got a trap nerve and had to come to a stand still. It had been trying to trap all week and what a time to showed up?...Ouch had to stop straight away with the pain and try and stretch my back out. So glad I was getting a lift home or I would have cried all them miles away from home. It was ok ish after 5 minutes then I managed the one last mile I had planned to do before I meet my husband. What a coincident I stopped the watch, and my husband showed up , talk about great timing...

13 miles planned done!!

2 hours 15 minutes it took me

Average pace 10.15

And 1539 calories burned

Now what shall I have to eat??

Whoop whoo...

Going Dotty For Cotton...

Headband ~ Primark
Shirt ~ F and F Tesco
Skirt ~ Primark
Shoes ~ Crocs
Trying to wear more cotton as the hotter days are not good for me wearing polyester clothing as I am allergic to it. This outfit is perfect being 100% cotton, just what the doctor ordered!!.
What is it when you see a cute little dress in the sale at a great price makes you forget your allergic to something? Maybe its just me with an eye for a bargain but I have lots of clothes I cant wear during the summer months.
Its not too great when it comes to running everything suitable for exercise is polyester or a form of polyester, sports bra, sock and mostly legging. I have managed to buy a few new 100% cotton tops for running which I am very pleased with...

This one is from the sweater shop and I have it in red white and blue, not sure the writing is to clear for running though as my friend thought it said I <3 plumbing!!

Also my son brought me this one on his 19th birthday which I thought was so sweet of him to buy me something on his birthday!!

Also have my eye on this little number for the Robin Hood Half Marathon, think it might be to predictable?

What are you loving in the summer?

Mine is anything cotton!!

What I Wore Wednesday: Out Again..

Dress Primark

With all this lovely weather we've been having it's made me very tired after running and a few time this week I've fallen to sleep...

On Saturday after my sleep we manage to get a few hours to ourselves ( again!!) and go out for a drink...

After a few drinks I needed some chocolate cake (the 8 and a half mile run that morning really took it out of me )

After a few drinks...

After 5 drinks we walked home with a bag of chips whilst it was still light enough... 

Not much of a stop out nowdays am I...
