Running, Spinning and Repeat…

 Outfit ~

Top ~ Kookia via charity shop

 Jeans ~ Firetrap

 Sandals ~ Crocs

Over the last few days I have noticed that you can really feel the Autumn chili in the air starting to settle in. It has got me packing some of my summer clothes away, reaching for my warmer clothes and finding out my warm snuggle dressing gowns and pj’s.

Yesterday morning it was really fresh and even my daughter woke up and said she had been dreaming it had snowed, she had noticed the change in temperature too.

The nights are also turning cooler and darker evening are getting earlier, very quickly now. Was lovely to see it still like summer on Monday in the day, where has the sun gone today?

We did do really well this year for wonderful weather especially in the summer holidays when we needed it the most.

I have really been making the most of pushing myself into exercise this week, no excuse now the children are back at school. My 13 miles run on Sunday got me into running long distance again and the last few days in a morning ( before I have time to change my mind)  I have been really enjoying spinning class, today I still managed to do a 6 miles run with my trapped nerve.

What is it with spinning though that makes you hungry?

Since getting home today I have not stopped eating.

3 slices of honey on toast,
2 biscuits,
1 turkey cob
Half a packet of Liquorice allsorts
 glass of full sugar cherry cola,
1 bottle of water
2 cups of tea

 Ekk its not even lunch time yet!!

So now my new training is Running, Spinning, Showering Eating, Eating, Eating Sleeping and Repeat…So far so good! Just hope I don’t put on weight with how hungry it makes me…

 Off to find some lunch now..

    I'm so laughing at the Liquorice Allsorts as I've recently rediscovered them too! You're amazing to fit all that exercise in with everything else! That top is so pretty! Ax

    I empathise. I did a boxing class a few hours ago and I've been eating since! Could be worse, could just be doing the eating I suppose. Good on you – thirteen miles. That is awesome!
